Perseverance, Part 3.

July 18, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In the previous posts on perseverance, we learned that God guarantees our completion in Christ (Philippians 1:6), and that He, Himself, is the source of our eternal life (John 10:27-30). Now, we turn to Paul, in Romans, to see that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribula... Keep Reading

Perseverance, Part Two.

May 2, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In our first installment on perseverance, we learned that our confidence is based not on our own faithfulness, but God's. Paul assures his readers, in Philippians 1:6, that God is the one who guarantees the completion of the work begun in us: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at...

Perseverance, Part 1.

March 14, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

From the time I was a boy, and all the way up through my early teen years, my dad and I loved to go fishing together. We have a lot of great memories that weave through the south Louisiana waterways: Belle River and Lake Verret and Bayou Sorrel. One such trip was very "special," in the sense that we had a few boat problems, got turned a... Keep Reading

Sanctification, Part 3.

February 28, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In this final, brief look at sanctification, I want to consider the phrase “slaves to God” (Romans 6:22). We've already seen that when we were lost, we were slaves to sin. We also saw that conversion leads to a change of heart that makes us slaves to righteousness. This next phrase, "slaves to God," doesn't indicate a third, diff... Keep Reading

Sanctification, Part 2.

February 7, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In this second part of our look at sanctification, we continue on through Romans 6. Previously, Paul established that we were slaves to sin. But now, he reveals an astounding truth: we have been made slaves to righteousness. Once, we committed sins because we were under the power of sin… we did the things we wanted to do, and we reck...

Sanctification, Part 1.

January 23, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

Sanctification sometimes feels as though God is bringing about circumstances in life which will make us both very holy and very unhappy. But that isn’t how it really is. Sanctification is an ongoing struggle, a battle waged against sin and the flesh. But while the battle sometimes seems to be trench warfare, there also great joys that ... Keep Reading

Adoption

January 2, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

That is one reason why adoption is such a beautiful thing: it is not the merit or worth or greatness of the orphan… it is the other way around! The orphan is helpless! The child’s situation is hopeless! The grace and generosity on display is that of the adopter! So it is with our adoption by God: all the countless merits of His character are on display in this act of adoption.... Keep Reading

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

Conversion can be defined as our willing response to the gospel call, in which we sincerely repent of sins and place our trust in Christ for salvation. To think about conversion carefully, we’ll look at the necessity, nature, and evidence of conversion over the next few posts. The Necessity of Conversion Previously, we observed that ...
