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.
The four gospels are likely the best-known and least understood portions of the New Testament canon. Written to communicate the foundations of the gospel in the person and work of Christ (while Acts shows what we do with the gospel message in communicating it to all, the Epistles give the inspired interpretation, unfolding, and application of the gospel, and Revelation tells us where the gospel is consummated with the Lord’s return and earthly kingdom), they clearly reveal to us the personal glory and power of our Lord Jesus. They are the best-known because they have likely been more visible than the epistles or even Revelation; they are the least understood because the Enemy has energized men’s fallen thinking to distinguish the Lord’s teaching from Paul’s, or to find in Jesus any number of fashionable leftist and social justice concerns that stem from a brash misunderstanding of His words. And of course, many are the cults and half-converted professed Christians who have used statements in the gospels to deny everything from the absolute deity and eternality of our Lord to His bodily resurrection.

God has always been a saving God. And He has always expected the people He has saved to live in accordance with that grand reality. In the Exodus, when He rescued Israel for His purposes to become His covenant people, the Mosaic Covenant became the rule of life for them—it was to teach them how to live now that they were God’s people. Similarly, in the New Testament era, as God is calling out from the nations a people to bear His name, He gives them words that govern, define, explain, and clarify the life they are to live now that they belong to Him. He tells them what He wishes them to know, believe, love, and do—and as His people, they are required to do so in submission to His Lordship. Read more
We ought not be surprised that marriage is under attack in our day. Divinely instituted at creation to communicate truth about both God and humanity, Satan will work overtime to undermine, distort, and redefine marriage. While it is easy for evangelicals to look to the legalization of same-sex “marriage” as a direct attack on God’s design (and it is), to limit our criticism to that is both short-sighted and arrogant. For decades, evangelicals have adopted the spirit of the age on marriage. When no-fault divorce became the law of the land, there were few if any cries of opposition from God’s people. Read more
The fact that every word of Holy Scripture is breathed out by our sovereign God is undoubtedly one of the most precious realities in the world. Besides guaranteeing the total inerrancy, perfect infallibility, comprehensive and binding authority, and complete (every word) preservation of the Scriptures until today, it also ensures the sufficiency of every passage of Scripture to teach transforming truth and instruct the mind, will, and affections.

If giving—of ourselves, our time, and our resources, especially financial ones—is a key impetus fort the success of God’s work in the world, then it would make complete sense for God to appeal to naturally selfish, self-protective people to part with their money to support and enable that work. And He uses the providentially-enabled ministry of the Philippians to Paul to do so. Read more
