The Life of God in the Soul of Man

27 11 2007

Grace Church has been praying through “The Great Eight” (Romans 8 ) in our church prayer meetings this Fall. The entire chapter is remarkable in its scope beginning with “no condemnation” and ending with “no separation.” Not to be overlooked, tucked away in the middle of the eighth of Romans, are these amazing statements:

(9) However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. (10) If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. (11) But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

How do we know we (or another) is a Christian? God lives inside of him!

Yes, the Grace Church blog has moved yet again. Perhaps this new wordpress home will be more perdurable? Thank you for continuing to keep up with us.

The Self-Exaltation of God

25 11 2007

I should say first that every Christian should think seriously about the implications of this discussion. One view is biblical and one is not. This is not an issue of secondary truth, but of Theology Proper.

Some of you have already been keeping up with the online discussion related to God’s Self-exaltation. Timmy Brister provides a one-stop shop in order to keep track all of the discussion

Happy worshipful thinking!

The Centrality of Jesus

23 11 2007

There are at least seven obvious ways that Jesus Christ should be demonstrated as the central Figure in the life of His church. Col. 1:18.

  1. Prayer—That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in dependence upon God
  2. Preaching—That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in expository exultation
  3. Worship—That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in our affections
  4. Teaching—That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in biblical maturity
  5. Fellowship—That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in biblical community
  6. Evangelism—That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in gospel witness
  7. Missions–That demonstrates the centrality of Jesus in church reproduction
