After yet another exchange about some harm & offense brought on by my fellow reformed brethren, I wanted to share my heart with them. This is not a bash post. This is a heart plea from one reformed brethren to another.
Romans 5:12-21 is a pivotal passage in Romans. Paul stacks up Adam & Jesus and reveals why both are significant to who we are and where we are. The truth, hope, and encouragement in this passage is astounding and often overlooked.
Come explore it with me, and be pushed to something so much more.
What started in Amos the Spirit led me to the Gospel of John to teach a much greater lesson. Something that is often overlooked in the reasons for why Jesus came but is oh so pivotal for the shaping of our life in Christ. Hear what Jesus said and its implications.
For about a little more than a week now I’ve been reading through Amos for my morning devo with Jesus. Today I was reading through chapter 5 and I got hit with how some of the points in vv10-24 are similar of the Church’s past and applicable for the Church today.
As I was reflecting on the power of God’s Word, a flood of thoughts hit me. I think our actions in our preaching, teaching, and discipling reveal we don’t actually believe God’s Word is as powerful as it is and we need to help in making it impactful. We could not be any more wrong.
"A God-centered worldview brings every issue, question, and cultural concern into submission to all that the Bible reveals, and frames all understanding within the ultimate purpose of bringing greater glory to God." -Albert Mohler
