God’s Gracious Choosing

John 1:17, For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came into being through Jesus Christ (own Greek translation). Does this mean the law is evil? Not at all! It is holy, good, and righteous because it reveals what is unholy, evil, and unrighteous, namely, sin (Romans 7:7-13). But the law is not grace. What […]

Joy Results from Faith

Philippians 4:4, Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say: Rejoice! I have heard pastors and priests proclaim this to crowds of unbelievers. What is wrong with them? Such terrible exegetes!

Wrath Laid Aside

Matthew 21:5, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you.’” What sort of king comes to his people? What sort of king humbles himself and makes the effort to walk amongst his people? None other than Jesus Christ, King of the Jews! Christ is not a king who demands His people […]
