We Can’t Exclude God and Still Have Him (May 19)

We Can’t Exclude God and Still Have Him (May 19)

If, as rationalists, we rule out the possibility of God revealing Himself, then we should get used to the idea of having no God at all. The only God that unaided human reason can believe in is a God who is little more than a question mark.

Obtained with Christ’s Blood (May 18)

Obtained with Christ’s Blood (May 18)

If Christ bought the church with His blood, it is not our church to do with as we wish; it is His church. May we never quit calling it what it is. The church of God. The church which He bought with His Son’s blood. The church that belongs to Christ.

Yielding to God (May 18)

Yielding to God (May 18)

We do not know how to pray as we ought, even to know what to ask for. Here, then, is an opportunity for us to learn humility. We can defer to the Lord and pray for help in our praying. We can pray for Him to do whatever, in His wisdom, He sees best.

Inquiry (May 18)

Inquiry (May 18)

A measure of old-fashioned inquisitiveness can add immense value to our lives. We ought to recognize the good that can come from good inquiries. There are vast treasuries of knowledge waiting to open up to us. We need to ask, ask, and ask again!

DFBS 320 – Saving faith is faith in Jesus Christ

DFBS 320 – Saving faith is faith in Jesus Christ

We must believe that Jesus is who He claimed to be: the Son of God and Savior of the world. If we are to be saved by Him, we must turn to God in real trust and believe in His Son, committing ourselves to the truth that He can save us from our sins.

In addition to a selection of things that have been particularly helpful to me along life’s way, in “Walking in Christ” I will also be emphasizing some fundamental matters in the New Testament that are not receiving much attention these days.

April 2022

My rationale for writing first the beginning, the end, and the hardest pages in between, is that I want to write these while my mind is fresh, before the time arrives when I’m having to push through extreme weariness at the end of the project.
