»Faith That Works
01/14/19 from Grace to You Blog
Saving faith is a divine gift, not a human work. But that doesn’t mean true faith is passive or unaccompanied by good works. The faith God graciously supplies produces both the volition and the ability to comply with His will (cf. ...

Just as I am, without one plea But that Thy blood was shed for me, And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come! I come! That stanza, penned by Charlotte Elliot in the nineteenth century, has probably been used as b...

»Friday’s Featured Sermon: “Rekindling Your Love for Christ”
01/04/19 from Grace to You Blog
Imagine the ideal church. Imagine a congregation so firmly rooted in the truth that they were commended by the Lord Himself—specifically for their discernment, doctrinal fidelity, intolerance for false teaching, and willingness to ...

»Friday’s Featured Sermon: “We Beheld His Glory”
12/21/18 from Grace to You Blog
The story of Christ’s birth doesn’t signify His beginning. While the birth narratives in Matthew and Luke tell us about His incarnation, John’s gospel draws our attention to His work in eternity past. In the beginning w...

»The Gospel Distilled
12/19/18 from Grace to You Blog
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life . John 3:16 is likely the Bible’s most well-known verse. Most Sunday school children can quote it ...

12/14/18 from Grace to You Blog
There’s nothing we can do to earn our way into God’s kingdom. We need God to do something to us. That truth demolishes every religious system outside of Christianity. And that is the sobering reality Jesus used to initiate Hi...

The gospel of John doesn’t attract much attention during the Christmas season. Instead, we are usually drawn to the birth narratives found in the accounts of Luke and Matthew. However, John captures the essence of Christmas beautif...

»For the Earth Shall Be Full of the Knowledge of the Lord as the Waters Cover the Sea

Where in the Bible is the Christmas story to be found? Understandably, the instinct of most Christians is to turn to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, where the historical accounts of the birth of Jesus, the coming of the Messiah, are to ...

What about application? That’s a common question from people who want more what now? and how to at the end of a sermon. Those pointers can certainly help us in our day-to-day lives. But they can also narrow our understanding of the...

»The Purpose of the Parable of the Vineyard
12/05/18 from Grace to You Blog
Christ’s parables were never delivered in a vacuum. They were always provoked by the circumstances, discussions, and debates that surrounded Him. That kind of contextual background information is especially critical concerning the ...

»The Point of the Parable of the Vineyard
