Conversion, Part 3.

December 6, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

What is the evidence that a person has been truly converted? 2 Corinthians 5 tells us that a person who is genuinely converted is spiritually transformed. This person is a new creation, the old has passed -and is continuing to pass- away. One way that we see that is in the new heart: the person begins to have a completely different set of d...

Conversion, Part 2.

November 21, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

Last time, we established that conversion is our willing response to the gospel. In conversion, we sincerely repent of our sin and place our trust in Christ for salvation. Today, we'll look at repentance and faith in a little more detail.  Throughout the New Testament, sinners are urged to respond to the gospel- they are urged to repen... Keep Reading

Regeneration

October 24, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

Regeneration is a secret act of God in which He imparts new spiritual life to us. It is not merited or deserved in any way by those who receive it, and it is completely monergistic- that is, brought about completely by God. In other words, you don’t have any part in your regeneration.  In sanctification, for example, you do ... Keep Reading

Election, Part 3.

October 10, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

There is one final thing I would like to consider about election, and our Ephesians passage in particular. Why would God choose to make salvation work in this way?   Certainly, there is some mystery in God's design. John Piper has said, helpfully, “Not all things are good for us to know, and so God has not revealed them to u... Keep Reading

Election, Part 2

September 27, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

No one is saved apart from Christ, and no one is saved apart from hearing the gospel and placing their faith in Christ alone. There is no calm, dispassionate entry into heaven for the elect. Rather, the elect are spared from the clutches of death and hell because of Christ who gave His life and shed His blood to win them. This is not a cold, systematic arrangement. This is God’s love, mercy, grace, and goodness on display to all creation. All could have been left to suffer punishment for sin, but in God's wisdom and love, He showed His goodness by saving some.... Keep Reading

Election, Part 1

September 12, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

If you are a Christian, you did not become one simply because you chose God. Rather, He chose you to be an instrument of His glory and grace. What a mystery! Election raises a lot of questions, but the answers offered by the scripture are remarkably beautiful.... Keep Reading

August 29, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

This week, we begin a series which will take a good look at what it means to be saved. Along the way, we'll examine the various parts of salvation and the Ordo Salutis (the logical order of salvation). Today, we’re going to ask some important questions about salvation: What are we saved from? Who does the saving? How does salvation actually take place? For what purpose are we saved?...

Every. Single. Sermon. - Part 3.

July 31, 2018 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

Paul warns Timothy that people have a natural tendency to listen to what they like. That's pretty harmless if we're only thinking about what kind of music we enjoy, or what kind of topics we talk about with friends. But what about issues of great importance? Would we stop listening to a doctor because we don't like the test result he reported? That would be incredibly foolish.... Keep Reading
