Just Clay

Just Clay Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?—Romans 9: 21 Clay must be pliable. The only way it can discover what is to become of it is if it yields to the touch of the potter. That lump on the potter’s wheel might become a beautiful vase to be set in a prominent place. Or it might become a pot to hold garbage. The clay has no idea what is in the mind of the potter and no business telling the potter what…

Who Shall Condemn Us?

Who Shall Condemn Us? Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.—Romans 8: 34 “Who is he who condemns?” Answering his own question, Paul said, “It isn’t Jesus Christ; He died for you. In fact, He is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for you.” Jesus is doing the opposite of condemning you—He is interceding for you! When Jesus spoke with Nicodemus, He said, “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn…

Who Shall Deliver Me?

Who Shall Deliver Me? For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?—Romans 7: 19, 24 We have all experienced the struggle Paul describes in this passage. In our hearts we know what’s right. We know exactly what we are supposed to do, and exactly what we are not supposed to do. And most of the time we try hard to do what is right, but it is then we find…

Grace

Conscious of Grace Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more…—Romans 5: 20 At times when I have failed miserably, I have thought, “When will I ever learn? I have blown it again.” But it is often in that place of misery and self-condemnation that God chooses to do something outstandingly glorious for me. Conscious of His merciful grace, I can’t help but respond with, “Oh Lord, I love You!” **True praise rises spontaneously from the heart, recognizing God’s goodness and grace. Take in the amazing fact that God loves you…

Keys To Faith

Keys to Faith And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead.… He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.—Romans 4: 19-21 Whenever the writers of the Bible wanted to give a classic example of a person with faith, they pointed to Abraham. In fact, Abraham is called “the father of the faith.” The first key to Abraham’s faith is that he did not consider his or…

A Matter of the Heart

A Matter of the Heart For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.—Romans 2: 28-29 You can say all the right things and still be far from God. That is because God is interested in the heart. Outwardly, the Jews kept the law. But inwardly, they violated it. God addressed this inconsistency through Isaiah the prophet,…

God’s Good News

God’s Good News For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.—Romans 1: 16 In Paul’s early years, he was caught up in a religious system where man sought to be justified before God by keeping the law. But the law was never intended to make man righteous before God. The law was intended to show man what a sinner he was, and to make the whole world guilty before God. So when Paul came to know…

In The Storm – must read!

In the Storm But not long after, a tempestuous head wind arose, called Euroclydon.—Acts 27: 14 Through no cause of his own, Paul landed right in the midst of a vicious storm. He had warned the captain of the ship not to sail. But the captain didn’t listen. We sometimes wrongly think that because we serve the Lord, we should enjoy smooth sailing all the way. Surely the Lord will calm the seas for us, and send a soft wind to fill our sails. Not so! Jesus does not promise to spare you from the storms, but He has promised…

Knowing God’s Will

Knowing God’s Will Then he said, “The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will…”—Acts 22: 14 In Jerusalem, Paul told the Jews of his conversion on the Damascus Road, how he was temporarily blinded as the result of the brilliant light, and how he received his sight when Ananias came and laid hands on him. Ananias then told Paul that God had chosen him that he should know the will of God. This applies to you and me as well. Because He loves you, God has chosen you that you should know His will….
