Because of the glorious Lord Jesus Christ, true life now—and eternal life forever—is yours to know and enjoy. What the Scripture reveals about Him is worth more than all knowledge, all riches, and all happiness in this world.
Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
The idea that sin defiles the sinner (and sometimes, those with whom he or she interacts) is a fundamental tenet of hamartiology (the study of sin). Indeed, this is the root reason for the imagery and theology of defilement and uncleanness in the OT Law, and that the Law commanded and provided a means to cleansing speaks to the innate need for just that in our relationship to God, other people, and His world.

God has designed all of us to have multifaceted responsibilities—family, work, church ministries, and so on. In an unfallen world, these things would not be opposed to one another, and indeed in the resurrection they will not be. They need not be opposed to each other by necessity in this world, either, but sadly our flesh and our simple human frailty can make it difficult to place them in proper relationship to one another.

It is arguable that the doctrine of God’s meticulous providence may be the most precious doctrine to the believer (second only to the inerrant verbal inspiration of Holy Scripture). That God reigns as comprehensively sovereign over all things breathes new life into how we approach trial, prayer, impossibility, obstacles, national and international problems, the spiritual barrenness of the church, and every other issues large or small.

Who Jesus is, what He taught, and what He did is the gospel. In other words, the gospel is Christ Himself. Our saving response to that, enabled by His sovereign grace, is repentant faith. But the gospel itself is not merely a message (though it is that!), but the identity, teaching, and work of a unique and individual person. Read more
It is an unavoidable precept of Holy Scripture that the Lord uses men to accomplish His work. That God is the ineffable Sovereign of the universe who appoints and disposes all things for His glory should not be taken to mean He is above the use of means. Indeed, the accomplishing of the divine purposes will not happen apart from significant and decisive engagement of things other than God. Of course, perhaps chief among these is the human race. Because God’s plan is now and always has been to have an earthly kingdom over which He is sovereign, filled with human image-bearers who rule for and rightly love Him, it is not surprising that real human responsibility and influence is of the utmost importance for the completion of His program.
