The Same Power

“Christians have the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead living inside them. One day that power will complete the work of saving us, but in the meantime the normal Christian life can be one in which we are very aware of the change that the resurrection brings. We are citizens of the age to come, living in a world that is dead to God. But we are not dead to him. We live to him. May God help us live in the light of that fact more each day. One day we will all see that, thanks to the d … [Read more...]

MLJ Monday-The Christian Life Is Not Automatic

Lloyd-Jones makes a great point in the quote below. The only thing I would add is that many people today think that simple preaching of doctrine will automatically lead to a transformed life. Lloyd-Jones is right when he says we must be taught to think. We need practical guidance to help us apply the wondrous truths of the gospel, or we will remain stunted and immature Christians. Where is the preaching that will help us live as Christians? Nothing happens automatically in the Christian … [Read more...]

Love That Never Ends

On Valentine's Day we think of romantic love.  But the kind of love that the world pushes on us shares little in common with the Bible's view of love. Love is a doing word, not a feeling.  Love is a commitment, not a moment of passion. Love is a decision, not a fleeting fancy. Love is forever, not a one-night stand.  Real love is the kind of love Jesus has for us.  If you are alone this Valentine's, you can be glad that you are not alone as there is one who has given himself for you and will alw … [Read more...]

Who Will Go To The Native Americans?

This is the burning question on my mind following a conversation with a woman who sat next to me on one of my flights here in the USA. I know it won't be me. My place in the body of Christ is firmly marked out for me back at home in Jubilee London. But I know that our local body has a role in sending people, and this blog can also encourage other people to think beyond their local situation. Perhaps today I can play a part in helping you consider reaching out to Native Americans living near … [Read more...]

“The New Calvinists Are All Arminians”

A blog entitled For the Elect Alone has reviewed Raised With Christ and come up with the slightly confusing notion that it is promoting an Arminian perspective. But, he also lists a number of  modern reformed teachers and says they are Arminians too. … [Read more...]

INTERVIEW – Sam Storms Turns The Tables On Me

Today I continue my interview with Sam Storms. I allowed him to turn the tables on me and interview me about the resurrection. He makes a great interviewer, I think: … [Read more...]

Deep Creek Anglican Begins His Review

Our author rightly places such importance on the resurrection that he defines a Christian as:“…someone who believes in the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ and lives in light of the implications of that event.” The issue of course, as Adrian concedes, is what precisely are those ‘implications’? And this drives the theme of Raised with Christ – why the resurrection is so important; the ways in which we can be changed by it; the consequences of the resurrection for our thinking and behaviour. … [Read more...]
