This week, from Passover until Resurrection Day, I’m posting video clips answering “What is the Gospel?” from several different Christian leaders with great understanding of the answer to this question. Praying that if you don’t have the answer to that question, you find it this week, and that God grants you faith and repentance and a new life in Him.
Christianity demands of us both love and truth. Listen to this expounded from Romans 9.
Are you ready for Romans 9? Some portions of the Bible are more difficult to understand or accept than others. The Apostle Peter acknowledged that Paul’s letters “contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction” (2 Peter 3:16). Which of Paul’s letters did Peter have in mind? Probably Romans, and possibly Romans 9-11.
“Life has great anguish, great grief, deep heartache, for Christians and non-Christians alike. … There are times when even committed believers feel like they can’t go on. They want to give up, to throw in the towel. … David was experiencing some of these feelings when he wrote the contemplative psalm we call Psalm 55.”
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 1 Peter 4:12-13
“The source of a lot of unhappiness in the home is connected to the kind of entertainment “enjoyed,” by the occupants thereof. Yet, the form and types of emotive experiences enjoyed can also lead to a great deal of contentedness and lasting joy.”
