In every good deed, God is active and working. Even our good works will ultimately be ascribed to the glory of God.
In Christ, we get a new legal standing before the judgment seat of God and a new nature to live before men.
Christ has not only saved us from the wrath of God, but transformed us and saved us from the sinful nature that destined us for that wrath.
God saves sinners by his grace alone to obliterate all human boasting in his presence. Is this good news for sinners?
If I am commanded to believe the gospel, is faith something I create, or is it a gift of God?
God’s purpose in saving his children is to show them his eternal kindness toward them in Christ forever.
We embrace, delight in, receive, live in, experience the miracle of being remade in Christ through our faith.
Without our consent, without our approval, without our say, God decided to save his own.
God has saved us. God is saving us. God will save us. All are true. All are necessary. All are glorious.
Grace loves to shine the brightest for the most undeserving and the most unable to save themselves.
Being alive to Christ is a real experience, just like being dead to God is a real experience. What is it like?
Does God love everyone in the world? Does God care about both the elect and non-elect in the same way?
Where would we be today, or in a thousand years, if God were not rich in mercy?
It always takes immeasurable power to raise the dead to life. Every Christian has an amazing testimony.
When Christians say that we are “saved,” what exactly are we being saved from?
The plight of all humanity is that we are lovers of sin and sons of disobedience. This makes us by nature children of wrath.
Apart from Christ, we were so sinful, so wicked, so rebellious that Scripture called us children of disobedience.
The ruler and authority of the air is the same as the god of this world. The whole world lies in his power — for now.
Christians are unavoidably out of step with this world. We do not think the same or act the same because we serve a different Master.
Anyone who assumes he is free and independent apart from God is in reality enslaved to the world and a lackey of Satan.
