This week we read John 2:18-22. The disciples only understood Jesus after the resurrection. The Holy Spirit leads Jesus’ disciples into the truth just as Jesus promised. As a bonus we discussed the divinity of the Holy Spirit and the Athanasian Creed.
We know we can't influence our own salvation. That's entirely up to God. But can we influence someone else's? Can we be so winsome that they convert, or such a jerk that they reject the faith entirely? That's the question Peter and Kevin tackle this episode!
We always get it backwards. We take a word we know, and when the Bible uses that same word to describe God, we think we know what it means. But what if that isn't how it works at all? What if that approach sends you on a wild goose chase straight in to idolatry?
Forgiving someone is hard. It's even harder when that person refuses to repent of their sin against you…or to even admit that they sinned at all! What is a Christian do do when this happens? Peter and Kevin talk through where the rubber hits the road in applying Law and Gospel to this situation.
The eternal Word in human flesh. God and man. Divinity sanctifying human flesh. In Jesus, God comes to forgive our sins and to grant us eternal life with Him in the flesh. The glory and exaltation of God is tied to the cross of Jesus Christ. All for you.
