The New Temple of God05/22/15
We see that one of the themes throughout the Bible is God trying to find a home on Earth. Initially it was in the Garden. Later it was the Tabernacle. And we see that David had the desire to build the Temple. On the day of Pentecost a new temple was...
Invited Into the Throne Room of God
Living out the Gospel in daily life is made possible by Pentecost. There's great significance we find in the Old Testament. 50 days after the Israelites left Egypt they camped at Mt. Sinai and were given the law. We see the Old Covenant law written on...
Christ in You, The Hope of Glory
This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost. This distinguishes Christianity from every other religion on earth. The very Spirit of God -- the teacher -- comes to live in believers. Paul put it this way in Colossians 1:27: "To them God has chosen to make known...
The Very Presence of God
Pentecost really is the intersection of the Gospel and our daily lives. It's a wonderful truth and so often it's not taught. Acts 2:1-4 "When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a...
The Intersection of His Life and Ours
This Sunday we will celebrate Pentecost. It is not often celebrated in the US. But it is one of the most important days in a believer's calendar. It truly connects us to Jesus' life. His life becomes our life. It marks the place and time when Jesus'...
Grace Is The Key
Why is the overwhelming grace of God true? Romans 3:3 Romans 7:4-6 How can we uphold the law and die to it at the same time? Romans 6:14 Are you living under grace or under the law? John 10:28-29 Can a Christian lose salvation? Is there a Hell? How...
Living By Grace
The wonderful good news. Romans 6 What is the grace of God? How is the Christian life to be lived? What is this new covenant all about? Do you live in the old or the new covenant? Does God hold anything against us? Because of Christ there is no...
Give God's Grace a Chance
When Jesus died this New Covenant went into effect. And it's important that we recognize we are new covenant. In the New we find the ability to say "no" to sin. So often we're asked to compromise grace. But if we compromise grace you compromise my...
Grace Says "No" to Sin
One of the basic truths that we find is that we are New Covenant Christians. This is a covenant of grace. There's a big distinction between the old and the new. The Old shows us our sin and the wages for sin - which is death. The Old doesn't teach us...
We Are New Covenant Believers
When we read the New Covenant we find that it's to the Israelites. So where do those of us who are Gentiles fit in? In 2 Corinthians 3:6 we read, "He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant--not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the...
The New Covenant - Part 2
In part two Bob and Richard examine: What is the new covenant about? Why do we need a new covenant? What is the law for? What marked the end of the old and the beginning of the new covenant? What covenant did Jesus live under? Isn't the law there to...
The New Covenant - Part 1
Special teaching on The New Covenant Can we experience the abiding life? What is the purpose of the law? What is the work of Christ in us today? What is the new covenant? Can I have assurance that I am forgiven and saved? The new covenant is God's...
The Gospel of Grace
Paul wrote in Colossians 1:6 "the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world--just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God's grace." The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the gospel of grace. It...
What Grace Can Do For You! - part 2
When we talk about grace we're really talking about Jesus. So in this world we live in today, it's all about us. We're always wondering, "what's in it for me?" So what's in grace for us? Grace makes you eager to do good. It builds you up. It gives you...
What Grace Can Do For You!
The grace of God is the heart and soul of the Gospel. So often our definitions of grace simply fall short of the fullness found in the reality of grace. Almost every theologian wants to know more about the grace of god than anything else. We find...
"Now This is Eternal Life..."
We're talking about the finished work of Jesus Christ. It's the one thing that can change everything in our lives. One phrase that sums it up is "It is finished." In Hebrews 10 we find out what that really meant. Because Jesus shed His blood once and...
Rest with God
When we come to know who Christ really is, what He has accomplished for us, and who He is in us, we can really understand who we are. We can see who God really intended us to be. In the Gospel message we experience the death of the old man so we can...
One Sacrifice for Sins
We received a wonder email from Theresa concerning the "Proof" CD. Could you please read Hebrews 10:11-12? Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away...
Confess and Believe
We had an email asking, "What are we supposed to do to be saved?" In Romans 10:9-13 we read, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved... 'Everyone who calls on the...
Praying for Nepal
