We Have The Mind of Christ

God is infinite in knowledge and wisdom. This is what makes God, God. The Apostle writes:

Romans 11:33-36 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! (34) For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counselor? (35) Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? (36) For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

God, by definition, is unknowable. We know portions of Him as He has revealed in His Word. But if God were knowable, then God would cease being God. We can learn humans.

What did the disciples do? They departed from the council, and preached Christ all the more in the Temple and in every place. “They ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ” (Acts 5:42). We preach Christ crucified for this is the only thing that will change
a life, the only thing that will save a soul. Continue reading

Three Pillars Of Christianity

We defined “faith” as a surrendered trust in the character and promise of God. So what is “hope”? Hope is the cousin of faith. If you have a present faith in the Biblical God then you are not frightened by the future. The God Who saved and continues saving me today will save me days, months, years from now. Continue reading

On Spiritual Gifts

We all like to receive gifts – but if you’re like me, there are gifts you have received that you didn’t really like. You might have received something that you couldn’t use – like Santa Claus underwear. But if you’re a Christian, saved by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, God has given you a gift beyond grace. He has not only given you Himself, but God gives us all spiritual gifts…. Continue reading

I Die Daily

Many people ignore the fact that every day we live is also a day we die. We are born into this world growing but also dying. Death was pronounced on mankind from the time of Adam. God told Adam that he was to tend the Garden of Paradise. Continue reading
