September 3 HC 87 – Luke 16:19-31 Can people be saved if they still live unrepentantly in their sin?  This seems like a pretty basic question, but it is one that people are getting wrong more and more often even in the church. Take for example Rob Bell and his book “Love Wins”.  In this […]

September 1 HC #86 – I Peter 2:11-12 Good works are done by the Christian and one of the reasons is because through those works God is glorified.  And as believers we delight in seeing our God high and lifted up.  We want others to praise His name and use it rightly.  Good works can […]

August 31 HC #86 – Romans 6:1-2 So good works do not help us at all in salvation.  We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and that alone.  His righteousness is what saves and redeems, not our own.  So why bother doing any good works at all?  Shouldn’t I just sit back […]

August 30 HC #85 – Joshua 7:1-26 Church discipline is necessary. This really ought to go without saying, but in today’s “live and let live” world, it has to be spelled out. Church discipline is not an optional thing. It has to be done. We saw some of the reasons earlier in that a little […]

August 29 HC #85 – 2 Corinthians 2:5-11 The kingdom of heaven is shut, but also opened by church discipline.  How does discipline open the door to the kingdom of heaven?  Paul illustrates this very well in 2 Corinthians 2:5-11. This section of 2 Corinthians very likely continues the saga of the man who was […]

August 28 HC #85 – I Corinthians 5:1-8 How do we shut the kingdom of heaven through Christian Discipline?  It seems kind of self-explanatory, but with how seldom it is done in today’s churches, an explanation must be made. Paul gives a great example in I Corinthians 5 where a man within the church has […]

August 27 HC #84 – Isaiah 52:6-8 How beautiful are the feet of those who publish peace and bring good news.  Yes, this is the verse that Romans 10 quotes.  It is a proclamation about the wonderful reaction we ought to have when we hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the best news ever published.  […]

August 26 HC #84 – 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 The Word of God, when taught rightly, shows men that forgiveness of their sins can be found in Christ Jesus and Christ Jesus alone, as well as showing them that outside of Christ is only condemnation. Paul reminds us of this in 2 Corinthians 2 when he […]

August 25 HC #84 – Ezekiel 37:1-14 How does preaching open the door to the kingdom of heaven?  It instructs people on the truth of the gospel.  It points to the Lord Jesus Christ, and it is the Spirit’s chosen instrument to bring regeneration or being born again, without which no man can see or […]

August 24 HC #83 – I Timothy 3:15 The keys of the kingdom are given to the church.  Why?  What makes the church so special?  Sadly, that is a question that is asked a lot these days.  You find more and more people who claim to be Christian or spiritual, but want nothing to do […]
