Why is God called the Father of glory? What does that phrase mean, and how does it shape and inspire our prayers?
Why are faith and love so tied together in the Bible? Because they are tied together as a summary of the Christian life.
When you look at your life and notice greater devotion to Christ, greater obedience to his word, greater love for God and for neighbor — thank God.
Do you still pray for God to show you more of himself? No matter what you have seen so far, there are still worlds to see.
How could God be loving and do everything he does for his own praise?
The human heart is dead, fleshly, blind, natural, unable to believe the word of God — without the Holy Spirit.
We are God’s possession. Sealed with his Spirit. Adopted. Redeemed. Yet awaiting our full adoption and redemption.
What does it mean to be sealed with the Holy Spirit? And how does his sealing affect the Christian life?
What is involved in saving faith? The devils, for instance, believe but are not saved. What is different for us?
How do we win our elect neighbors, friends, and family members to Christ? What do we say?
According to Scripture, what exactly is the gospel?
Some define it too narrowly, and others too broadly. So, what exactly is the gospel?
The mystery of Christ is that former enemies — Jews and Gentiles — are now united as one in Christ and share one inheritance.
If God is absolutely sovereign over everything, is there anything truly meaningful for us to do?
The sovereignty of God is explosively relevant for all of life. Come study his power and authority over all things, including you.
Why does the apostle Paul spend so much time drilling down into the realities and importance of predestination?
The glory of adoption is that we now receive an inheritance from God, and the best inheritance he could give us is himself.
The grand climax of God’s plan in history, indeed the very point of all creation, is summed up in one word: Christ.
God has a joyful plan and has worked it out in history, and the climax of that plan is the person and work of his Son.
Nothing can be clearer about the nature of grace than to realize our life in Christ is owing to nothing in us. We were dead.
