Growing in the Grace of God

As Christians, God has designed a beautiful new arrangement for us to have relationship with Him. Jesus, through His death on the cross for us, fulfilled the old covenant of law and ushered in a new covenant. Now, through Jesus, we are not under law, but under grace. You see, man couldn’t keep the law…

Resurrected Living

We last looked at the lives of men in the Old Testament (Abraham, Moses, David, Joshua, and Caleb) and how they found that God was sufficient, as they chose to put their faith in Him.  It is always very encouraging to look at their examples. But as we look at these Old Testament saints, it…

God was Sufficient for Joshua and Caleb

I love looking at Old Testament examples of believers who trusted in God!  So often God calls us to believe the impossible. So often He calls us to trust in what is beyond our own strength.  We see this over and over in Old Testament saints.  These are men and women who accessed the resources…

Jesus is your treasure. A discussion of biblical stewardship and money.

How is stewardship actually worship? Jesus devoted roughly 25 percent of his words in the Gospels to the resources God has entrusted to our stewardship. This includes some 28 passages in the Gospels. In the Old and New Testaments combined there are over 800 verses on the subject, addressing topics ranging from planning and budgeting, to saving and investing, to debt and tithing. Furthermore,…

God’s Sufficiency for Old Testament Saints

We’ve been studying God’s Sufficiency for godly living. Last time we looked at New Covenant promises in the Old Testament, and how Old Testament saints were able to tap into God’s sufficient resources through faith. Man was as helpless without God back then as we are today. We saw how Moses knew the Israelites were…

Our God is a Trustworthy God

Continuing on with our conversation about the New Covenant and God’s Sufficiency for Godly Living, we are now going to look at some examples in the Old Testament of men who trusted in God’s Sufficiency for their lives. The idea that in order to serve God we need His empowering, and that in order for…

The Prequel to Christmas

When Christ came into the world, Israel was in a very dark place spiritually and politically. They had not heard from God for four hundred years. They were subjects to the Roman Empire and forced to submit to a “puppet king” known for his paranoia and jealousy. Herod was a wicked man. But the Jews…

Heavenly Treasure in an Earthen Vessel

There is a depth and beauty that flows out of time invested with the Lord. When His Word has been studied, meditated on, and prayed through, the Lord reveals Himself and transforms the person’s heart. If you would like to know my heart, two of my greatest passions are the messages of God’s sufficiency for the Christian…

Christ in the Old Testament

Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given”. When we think of Christmas, we often think of the arrival of Jesus as a baby in the manger.  In reality, it was also a departure. For us, a Child was born. But for God the Father, a Son was…

God’s Workmanship, Not Mine

In this post we will continue to talk about the New Covenant verses the Old Covenant. In Christ we have been given so much! The verses we will be looking at are in 2 Corinthians 3:7-18.  Please take a few minutes to read these verses, they are life changing! They talk about how for the Jews…
