God Centered Life - Divine Matchmaking

A high view of God's sovereignty must drive us to our knees in prayer. Often when people emphasize that God is sovereign, the thought is that they don't need to do anything themselves. But the Bible says the opposite and that we need to pray.

God Centered Life - Fear God, Part 2

On the one hand, God said that the blessing for all nations would come through Isaac, but on the other hand, God told Abraham to kill Isaac. In the hall of faith chapter in Hebrews, it says that Abraham reasoned that God would raise Isaac from the dead, so he trusted Him enough to obey.

Why does stuff happen even to people who who follow God zealously? Even Abraham was given a very difficult test in being asked to trust God and sacrifice his promised child. In our difficulty and suffering, we need to trust God too.

God Centered Life - Beyond Redemption, Part 2

There's a bit of Sodom and Gomorrah in all our hearts. The point of this story in the Bible is to show the depth of depravity of the human condition. Unless we have a deep understanding of our sin, we will not have a deep experience of grace.

God Centered Life - Beyond Redemption, Part 1

Many of our problems come about through not bravely saying what we think to God. Our fallen natures make us hesitate to be honest with God because we're afraid of judgment. Only grace and the love of Jesus can persuade us that we can have a relationship with God.

God Centered Life - The Tower of Babel, Part 2

We often think that God confusing the languages at the tower of Babel was only a judgment, but He also had a plan to spread the people throughout the earth. God stops their doomed approach to reach heaven and achieve salvation so that they might find the right approach.

Could any text in the Bible be any more relevant to our contemporary Western society and the church? Just as in the time of the tower of Babel, we long for unity and peace and community, but we're still rebels so we try to achieve it without God, and the result is disaster.

God Centered Life - God Gives Favor, Part 2

Grace triumphing over wrath is a Biblical theme that begins in Genesis and sets the trajectory for the message of the whole Bible. The theme of grace and the gospel goes right across Scripture, and it's a wonderful thrill to begin to see that in Genesis.
