God Is Love

Dr. J. I. Packer in Knowing God makes an interesting contrast in two statements he makes about “God is love”. First of all he says that “God is love” is not the complete truth about God so far as the bible is concerned. Secondly he says that “God is love” is the complete truth about God so far as the Christian is concerned. “God is love means that His love finds expression in everything that he says and does. For instance in Romans 8:28: AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. Paul is declaring that every single thing that happens to him expresses God’s love to him and comes to him for the furthering of God’s purpose for him”.

The Nature Of Sin

Oswald Chambers wrote, "The nature of sin is not immorality and wrongdoing, but the nature of self-realization which leads us to say, "I am my own God." This nature may exhibit itself in proper morality or in improper immorality, but it always has a common basis--my claim to my right to myself." This is our problem we all claim to have a right to our-self. No one can tell us anything because we know what is best for us and God help the person who gets in our way! C.S. Lewis put it this way, "Pride is the ruthless, sleepless, unsmiling concentration on self"

Lord deliver me from myself, and help me to see how much I get in the way of making any spiritual progress.

Pat Metheny Group - Have you heard

Saved by grace alone or not saved at all!

“I AM PRAYING FOR. . . THOSE WHOM YOU HAVE GIVEN ME FOR THEY ARE YOURS” John 17:9 Jesus values them simply because they belong to God. Jesus is saying I am praying for these people because they are yours and I am concerned for what is yours. We are God’s personal possession, Jesus is praying for us because we belong to him. How ridiculous for Christians to worry and fear when the shepherd and caretaker of their souls is caring for them. “You are not your own, for you were bought with a price’ (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
Believers are the Father’s love gift to the Son. It is unthinkable that the Father would permit this gift of love to fail by one believer being lost. Salvation is totally of God’s grace. If we could not be saved by our good works why should we be condemned after we are saved by some sin or act of disobedience? If God who knows all things knew that we would fail, why would he have given his son in the first place? Either we are saved by grace alone or we are not saved at all!
