Agree With Your Enemy

BY MARTIN LUTHER

Paul describes this faith in most significant words, namely, when we cry Abba! Father! For in the spirit of fear it is not possible to cry, for we can scarcely open our mouth or mumble. But faith expands the heart, the emotions, and the voice, but fear tightens up all these things and restricts them, as our own experience amply testifies.

Seeing All Sin On The Cross

BY DONAVON RILEY

The power and pressure of sin on us, from conception to the grave, is immense. That's why we struggle to differentiate sin from sin. "Maybe," we imagine, "if I can just stop lying to my spouse about going out for drinks after work, and dedicate myself to being a better parent, and..." We wrongly believe that we're sinners because we sin, but that's not the case.

No Approaching God Without Christ

BY RJ GRUNEWALD

The Law is a powerful word. The Law has the power to kill. The Law has the power to condemn and break down. The Law has the power to crush. And all of those powers are necessary—without the power of the Law, we’d never bear witness to the power of the Gospel.

I Am Not Ashamed Of The Law

BY DANIEL EMERY PRICE

Paul’s letter to the Romans is arguably the most masterful piece of writing in the New Testament. Martin Luther even declared that this letter was more important to the Church than the four Gospels.

Grace In The Shadows

BY RJ GRUNEWALD

We filter our lives and crop out the sadness so that everybody sees a version of us that has everything together. We don’t tell people we have a problem, we aren’t honest about our struggles, and we do whatever it takes to cover our muddy tracks.

Wait…What? So, Nobody is Going to Be Saved?!

BY BONNIE PETROSCHUK

“That can’t be right”, I thought to myself as I flipped back and forth between two verses in my Bible. I was locked in a life-or-death study of the book of Romans...

On Getting Rid Of Sad People

BY PAUL DUNK

Last night our family watched Pixar's Inside Out and yes, I'm very late to that Pixar party. I enjoyed the film. The personification of Joy and Sadness was extraordinary. Joy was constantly on damage control, constantly refusing to allow Sadness to have a place in Riley's life.
