Are You Assuming Christ’s Absence From Your Life?

Your vocabulary matters. The words and phrases you use shape your understanding of what it means to live a normal Christian life. There are many ways that our Christian vocabulary—our Christianese—can obscure the saving message. But it can just as quickly obscure essential sanctification truths. For example, at the beginning of a church service, have […]

What’s the Difference Between a True and False Believer? (Free Grace FAQ)

People who believe in salvation by works often wonder about the difference between true believers and false believers. In part, I think they ask that question because they lack assurance. They wonder, “Am I really a believer? How can I know?” Since they think salvation depends partly on how you act, they often think the […]

The one who says he remains in him should walk just as he walked (1 John 2:6). Quick question: How did Abraham get from Ur to Canaan? Step by step. How did the Israelites go from Egypt to the Promised Land? Step by step. And how do you live the Christian life? The same way. […]

Here Are Five Reasons Why Adam and Eve Didn’t Lose Their Salvation (Free Grace FAQ)

I often hear this objection to eternal security: “If you can’t lose your salvation, how do you explain Satan falling away? And what happened to Adam and Eve?” What happened to Satan, Adam, and Eve was tragic, but here are five reasons they didn’t lose their salvation. First, salvation didn’t exist before the fall.

A Major Reason People Neglect Their Spiritual Gifts (1 Timothy 4:14)

Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you through prophecy with the laying on of hands by the council of elders (1 Timothy 4:14, emphasis added). The Holy Spirit gives every believer a spiritual gift, and as Paul implied to Timothy, you can neglect it. Why would you do […]

Are Children Blank Slates When It Comes to the Gospel?

Every generation needs to be evangelized—and that starts at home. Parents and grandparents are responsible for telling their kids that Jesus died for them on the cross, rose again from the dead, and now offers them everlasting life simply by believing in Him for it. You’ll have to tell them more than once before those […]

Do Atheists Have Less Purpose Than a Light Switch?

Have you heard that one in four “practicing Christian millennials” believe the church is irrelevant? A quarter! And those are kids in the church. Proverbs says: Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds (Proverbs 27:23). Parents, teachers, and pastors need to know the “condition of their flocks.” If young […]

Why Are You Spiritually Burnt Out?

“The more I did, the less happened,” Major Ian Thomas reflected. “Thus by the age of nineteen, I had been reduced to a state of complete exhaustion spiritually, until I felt there was no point in going on” (Edman, They Found the Secret, p. 169). Major Thomas remembered his early years as a Christian when […]

Out of Four Areas of Growth Only One Really Matters

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and with people (Luke 2:52). You will notice that Jesus grew on four different levels.

God Has Four Responses to Sin

God is holy, righteous, and just. Each of those terms spells out a different response to sin. Because God is holy, He hates sin. For example: “Do not plot evil in your hearts against your neighbor, and do not love perjury, for I hate all this”—this is the LORD’s declaration (Zech 8:17). Because God is […]

What Every Prodigal Child Needs to Realize

God has plenty of prodigal children. How can they get back on the right path? Prodigals need to realize that you can't live without your Father. In the parable, the prodigal son tried to live his life on his own terms, based on his own resources, dreams, and desires (Luke 15:11-32). And what happened? Everything […]

God’s Not-So-Secret Plan for You

Do you want to know God’s plan for you? It’s simple. God’s plan for you is Jesus. In fact, God has no plans for you outside of Jesus. The Father’s plans for you are entirely Christo-centric, that is, centered on Christ. For example, God determined that the only way to Him is through Jesus: Jesus […]

Here’s Why Moses Was Completely Useless

Have you ever felt completely useless? That can be good for your spiritual growth. Consider what happened to Moses. According to Luke: Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in his speech and actions. When he was forty years old, he decided to visit his own people, the Israelites.

Does the Bible Ever Say We’re Saved by Faith “Alone”?

Have you ever heard someone say: “The Bible never says we’re saved by faith alone!” Let’s admit, they’re right. That phrase doesn’t appear in the NT. Martin Luther, the great Reformer, added the word “alone” to his translation of Rom 3:28. Here is what Paul said: For we conclude that a person is justified by […]

God Loves the Unlovable

The Greek poet Ovid said, “If you want to be loved, be loveable.” That sums up society’s conditional love. Think of how we treat celebrities. The public’s love of celebrities is very fickle, depending entirely on what they do: “To be considered famous or have celebrity status doesn’t just involve being in a bunch of […]

Without Church, You’ll Grow Cold

As fall settles in and the nights come quicker and cooler, I enjoy sitting outside by a fire. Who isn’t mesmerized by the flicking flames and the glowing red embers of a roaring fire pit? Those embers remind me that Christianity is a relationship with Jesus and His people. After all, a Christian is someone […]

Jesus Is Bigger Than Your Biggest Problems (Colossians 1:15-17)

Two Kinds of Justification—Invisible and Visible?

People often struggle with the apparent disagreement between Paul and James over justification. But there isn’t a disagreement between them because the Bible teaches two kinds of justification. As Paul said, For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God (Rom 4:2). Paul, who repeatedly taught justification […]

What’s Driving Your Train?

Here’s a simple illustration of how Bible truth should take precedence over emotions in your life. Think of your life like a train. A train consists of a locomotive and all the railway cars that it pulls. Locomotives can be powered by different kinds of engines, such as steam, diesel, or electricity. Likewise, the locomotive […]

Whose Obedience Makes You Righteous (Romans 5:19)?

Obedience matters to salvation, but maybe not in the way you think. Do you want to be righteous before God? Do you want Him to see you as good—as really good?
