I’ ve Sinned… Once again. Will God Forgive Me?
“ If you’re struggling with that one sin that never seems to disappear, the one that has a ideal record when dealing with off against you in the ring, that’s when you need the good news of the inexhaustible grace plus love of Christ more than ever. Why? Because when we’re lower we’re more likely to think that devilish lie that will God’s love can be contingent on our performance. ”
In a World associated with Narratives, Be Radically Committed to Reality
There is some thing here to make everybody content and (almost) everyone mad. But it’ s all well worth considering. “ Too many of us are very committed to partisan narratives, and not committed sufficient to reality. It’s tragic that this holds true even within the church—where Christians’ politics frequently shapes how they interpret and apply the particular Bible.

Is Jesus Knocking at the Heart associated with the Unbeliever?
Here’ s a brief, simple, and completely Reformed answer through R. C. Sproul.
“ Grieving is not really passive. Suffering is not something that just occurs you and then you ride a wave associated with emotions until the circumstances quell. Suffering is much like school, and grieving is how we accomplish the coursework. It isn’t really the kind of education anyone willingly signs up for. But , when damage enters our lives, we are automatically enrolled to the seminar on struggling. And, just as we might prepare for any course, we must download the syllabus and begin in order to faithfully complete the particular assignments. ”
