Know Who You Are In Christ

“We are of a new kind. We are a new creation. We are not what we once were. We are a regenerated people… We are friends with God – no longer enemies. ” – Pastor Chris Grazor, Be Set Apart (1 Thessalonians 4:1-3, Jan 5, 2020), Anchor Bible Church, Plymouth, MN

Over the last few weeks, each message, each passage and each book I’ve been reading comes to this important Truth from God’s Word – we are to know who we are In Christ. By knowing who we are In Christ, we can walk worthy of our calling, be pleasing to God and be sanctified by the truth, which is the word of God.

My prayer is that this post will bless you with good resources to help you in your walk this year.

From Heaven He Came

This Christmas, get to know the definite atonement of Christ in the book From Heaven He Came and Sought Her. The contributors clearly convey the historical fulfillment of God’s promises as revealed in Scripture.

The Son, who is truly God and truly man, came as a humble servant through the virgin birth. He fulfilled, as no man could do, the whole law without sin, and on the cross He willingly took the wrath of God for our sin on himself. “It is finished” Jesus said. Three days later He rose from the dead. And for those whom the Father gave Him, the Son has definitely atoned. And as Jesus ascended to heaven, He will return again as promised.

God bless you during this Christmas season.

Homosexuality and the Campaign for Immorality – Pastor John MacArthur

Homosexuality and the Campaign for Immorality – Pastor John MacArthur

“…the wrath that is being referred to in Romans 1 isn’t any of those; it is the wrath of abandonment. The wrath described here is the wrath that is executed when – according to verses 24, 26, and 28 – God gives them over, gives them over, gives them over. In other words, it’s when God abandons a nation. It’s when God abandons a society and gives them over to the consequences of their behavior which is escalating iniquity and disaster, leading to judgment. “This wrath of God is released from heaven, revealed from heaven” – verse 18 says – “against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth.” And he goes on to say they all have the truth; the truth is visible from creation – you can know something of God and His nature – and from the heart. Romans 2says the Law of God is written in the heart.

And the good news, as shared in this message, is Jesus saves sinners. No matter what walk of life, blind eyes can be opened by the Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Pray for those who are lost that they may come to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Many have come out of this lifestyles into a new life in Christ. We are all born in sin. Jesus tells us that we must be born again. The old life will no longer matter. The new life in Christ is the beginning of eternal peace with God.

May God bless you as you hear and read His Word today.

Give Thanks to the LORD – Psalm 30

LambThanksgiving

Psalm 30 (ESV)

Joy Comes with the Morning

30 A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of the temple.

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up

and have not let my foes rejoice over me.

O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,

and you have healed me.

O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;

you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.

Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,

and give thanks to his holy name.

For his anger is but for a moment,

and his favor is for a lifetime.

Weeping may tarry for the night,

but joy comes with the morning.

As for me, I said in my prosperity,

“I shall never be moved.”

By your favor, O Lord,

you made my mountain stand strong;

you hid your face;

I was dismayed.

To you, O Lord, I cry,

and to the Lord I plead for mercy:

“What profit is there in my death,

if I go down to the pit?

Will the dust praise you?

Will it tell of your faithfulness?

10  Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!

O Lord, be my helper!”

11  You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;

you have loosed my sackcloth

and clothed me with gladness,

12  that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

The LORD is the everlasting God Who Never Grows Weary and He Renews Our Strength

Isaiah 40:31 [widescreen]

Isaiah 40:27-31 (ESV)

27  Why do you say, O Jacob,

and speak, O Israel,

“My way is hidden from the Lord,

and my right is disregarded by my God”?

28  Have you not known? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary;

his understanding is unsearchable.

29  He gives power to the faint,

and to him who has no might he increases strength.

30  Even youths shall faint and be weary,

and young men shall fall exhausted;

31  but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;

they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

they shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint.
