Knowing God 4

We were created for the primary purpose of knowing God. By the knowledge of God so many of life's problems fall into place, even if they are not taken away. Knowing God, however, is a complex matter.

Knowing God- Part 2

Can you say that you know God, or is it more true to say that you know about God? Meditation plays a big part in the knowledge of God. Do our lives display the gaiety, goodness, and unfetteredness of spirit that belongs to those who truly know God?

Knowing God- Part 1

J.I. Packer opens his book by identifying two damaging trends in today's Church- being conformed to the modern spirit and modern skepticism. Very few people today really know God. We tend to view good Christianity as being educational and informational rather than healthy spiritual development.

Sermon on the Mount 107

The last two verses of Matthew 7 are not throw-away verses. By recording the reaction of the people who heard the sermon on the mount we discover one final truth of great importance. When the sermon was over it was not Jesus' teachings that made the greatest impact, but Jesus Himself, and His authority.

Sermon on the Mount 106

Ultimately, the point of Jesus' story about the two houses is that our lives will be tested and must stand on the day of judgment. We hear very little about the judgment seat of Christ today. The teaching of the New Testament is that on that day all believers will give an account of the lives they lived on earth.

Sermon on the Mount 105

"Into every life a little rain must fall." And floods. And wind. Our faith is tested by the circumstances of life, by this world, and by the powers of darkness. These tests take different forms in different places, but we all are tested.

Sermon on the Mount 104

The story of the two houses in Mat. 7:24-27 tells us that the rain, flood, and wind beat against the two houses. One fell, while one stood. How do we view these storms of life? Even a house that stands may shake and may even sustain some injury.

Sermon on the Mount 103

What does it mean to be a true believer and faithful follower of Jesus Christ? What does it not mean? Using as a backdrop the story Jesus told in Matthew 7:24-27 we explore these questions.

Sermon on the Mount 102

The characteristics of a false believer and a carnal believer may be very much the same. It can be very different to tell them apart by looking at them. They may both be marked by self and by an unwillingness to face self in the light of Scripture. They may both admit to sins, but sin is another matter entirely.
