We can more clearly grasp His providence when we look at the storyline of the Bible from a panoramic perspective. It is only then that we can begin to see how seemingly insignificant events are woven together and form the far greater picture of God's master plan for our salvation...

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble (Ps 138:6; Prov 3:34 [cf. the Septuagint version]; Mt 18:1-4; Jas 4:6; 1 Pet 5:5). What is it about arrogance that God so abhors, and why does he regard humility so favorably?....

One of the great dangers in theology is making our faith something we discuss rather than something that moves us. We lapse into this problem when we treat God as the mere object of our study rather than as the Lord we worship...

WE ARE NOT GOD. This may seem ridiculously obvious, but much of our practice ignores this simple truth. Not only can we not control the events around us, but our understanding is inescapably incomplete. Human reflections about God are always limited by at least two key realities: our finitude and our sin. Although few Christians explicitly deny these realities, sometimes we act as though our theological reflections are free from these factors...

We enjoy God to the degree that we worship him faithfully. Faithful worship-including praise, prayer, obedience and faith-matters because idolatry, in whatever form, satisfies neither God nor us. Worship does not require that we perfectly understand everything about God but that we respond genuinely to the true God who makes himself known to us...

Dear Friend,
What an extraordinary reality we as Christians have in this assurance from the Apostle Paul! Despite our best efforts, every day we come face-to-face with our sinful nature. Nonetheless, we can find peace in the certainty that our sin has been dealt with once and for all on the cross...

For some people the question of whether or not God exists is a painful and haunting uncertainty not easily dismissed. But for most people the question is not whether God exists, but what is God like. Not whether there is a deity, but how many, and which one(s). How do we know God? Can God be trusted? Does God care? Is God good?

Many Christians have been familiar with the expression "Son of man" since they were children in Sunday school. Perhaps you were taught there that since Jesus is both God and man, the Bible calls him both "Son of God" and "Son of Man."...

Yesterday I enjoyed the privilege of addressing the student body of a local university, and tomorrow I’ll be in Michigan speaking at a student conference. Today I received a letter from a young pastor in Florida who wrote to encourage me with his news and also to ask me a question. Having spent the greater part of my life as the “young chap” seeking advice from mentors, it is quite a shift for me to realize that I am now being looked to for guidance. It is both a terrific privilege and a sobering responsibility...

John Calvin defended the doctrine of God’s exhaustive sovereignty over all things, especially over the salvation and damnation of individual human beings. For some, this makes him an ogre—teaching terrible doctrines which should never be uttered...
