  • “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

  • “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5.6-8;…

  • Some figures of speech are more picturesque that others; some cause mental images to race into our minds and remain there due to their uniqueness or their beauty.

  •   Justification! Everyone needs it, but no one can effect it! God alone justifies. “Now it was not written for his [Abraham’s] sake alone that it was imputed to him, but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed if we believe in Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered for our…

  • Life without hope is like a sunrise with no sun; something is desperately wrong with the picture. In humanity’s darkest hour, God’s voice broke the silence and hope sprang from the silence. Here’s what the first glimpse of hope looked like: “So the LORD God said to the serpent: ‘Because you…

  • Justification is a word we need to understand! Now let’s tone that down a bit; justification is a word that we would do well to try to understand.
