The Mind & Mission of God
The transparency of God can be overwhelming. He holds nothing back in telling us the clear truth. Isaiah 65 is a revelation of the mind and mission of God. What He thinks about sin, sinners, and what He plans to do about it.
The Discipline of God
God is always seeking to guide us, shape up, and make us in to the people He wants us to be. Sometimes He uses blessings, and sometimes it takes challenges. He is always calling us to follow Him and He’ll never leave us, even in our most difficult moments.
Being Fit for the Kingdom
Christians are called to live distinct lives. To be a light to the world and a city on a hill. We all must check to see how our lives are being lived and ask ourselves: “are we fit for the kingdom of God?”
A New Way of Life
Sacrifice, grace, open invitation are all the foundation of Christianity. But what happens after that? What does God call us to be after we believe and obey His perfect plan for our salvation? His grace paves the way for us to live a whole new life.
The Lord’s Invitation
In response to God’s savior and His marvelous grace God openly invites all to come. This invitation is for the thirsty, the broke, and even the misguided. This invitation is for everything you need or ever wanted. But you must come with humility and respond with hope to receive his offer.
God has made a remarkable provision for all wandering sheep to return to Him through His servant, Jesus Christ. This incredible act of grace, once understood, has major impact on a person’s life. Isaiah 54 is the exposition of the power of that grace.
The Suffering Savior
The fundamental problem that stands between God and man is the sinfulness of mankind. We have gone our own way, done our own thing, and sought to live without God. This sin causes separation and the only pathway back is for God to justly punish sin. To ensure sin can be punished and sinners be saved God provided a servant to stand in our place – Jesus Christ.
The Servant Savior
God is a saving God. He solves the problems that we cannot solve. Isaiah 42 gives us a glimpse into the servant God will provide to be the Savior we need.
The Gospel or Law
There is a stark difference between the gospel and legalism, yet it can easily be confused. We must be serious about protecting the gospel in our lives. Paul leads us in to how we do this.
Comfort My People
In the midst of suffering, turmoil, and crisis we find ourselves in desperate need for comfort. Whether our crisis is collective or individual, external or internal – our soul is in need of comfort. God offers us comfort that is based on reality and has life changing effect.
