Christ's Glory as a Humbled Mediator

The fact that Jesus took on the form of a man so that he could effectively mediate between man and God is one of the greatest truths we can think about....

Faith in the Face of Every Parent's Worst Nightmare

Confessing Christ at Christmas

I haven’t heard any Calvary Grace people complaining about the culture war at Christmas. I do see complaints on various media sources from professing Christians that municipalities are banning Nativity displays and cashiers don’t say “Merry Christmas.” I think this is because we emphasize good, biblical theology at Calvary Grace and we know that the Gospel will be ...

"It Was Fitting": Why the Gospel Isn't Arbitrary

When some people compare religions with each other, they can come away thinking that they are all arbitrary. Not so with biblical Christianity. The Christian gospel is not merely another clever scheme to provide what Karl Marx called, “the opiate of the people”. The Christian message of salvation has an internal consistency. It fits....

Who Has The Say-So?

Have you ever wondered who "has the say-so"? In any family, business or organization there are many decisions that must be made. And if the decisions are to be made it has to be clear who has decision-making authority. That’s what some old-timers that I’ve known used to call, "having the say-so."...

The Agonizing Duty of Faith: Christ?s Call to Believe In The Gospel

It’s been a few weeks since we looked at Mark last, and we left off with Jesus’s command to “repent” in chapter 1 verse 15. To repent is one side of the coin, and Jesus’ next command is the flip side, a call to faith. “Believe in the Gospel.” ...

About Turn: An Anatomy of Gospel Repentance

A couple weeks ago, we were breaking down Mark’s description of the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in Mark 1:14 and 15. Jesus began his preaching with an inidicative, a statement of fact, declaring what is. He said, “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom is at hand.” After the indicative, though, he follows it up with an imperative, a command, declaring what his hea...

The God Who Dares Be King: The Uncomfortable Implication of Jesus?

The Kingdom of God is a central theme of Jesus’ preaching. In Christian circles, we can become a little deadened to the true weight of this idea. We need to ask, and really consider, this question: what is a kingdom? It’s a place or a realm that is ruled by a king. Canada is, legally, a kingdom, because we are ruled by a king or queen. The United States is not ...

Called To The Wilderness: Finding The Only Thing We Need in a Place That Has Nothing

The wilderness is a dangerous place, because it defies our efforts to master it. Even when you've done everything humanly possible to keep it under control, it can still kill you....

He Put Them To Open Shame: The King Who Humiliates His Enemies

One of the most interesting parts of the Gospel of Mark is the way Jesus deals with Satan’s forces. In the very first chapter, in verses 21 to 28, we see Jesus encounter a demon. We see an exorcism, as Jesus sends the demon away. What’s remarkable about this incident is not the fact of the exorcism, but the manner in which it is done...

How The Gospel Delivers From Hyper-Calvinism: Ted's Testimony

Ted Verhey recently posted this note as a response to a discussion on legalism in our church community forum. With his permission, we’re re-posting it as a public testimony, both of the danger of hyper-Calvinism and legalism, and as a demonstration of the power of Christ to save through the Gospel....

If Christ Had Not Been Raised

"Even if Christ had not been raised, our sins would still be forgiven when Christ died on the cross." I have now heard this statement numerous times and once again at a church I visited this past Easter Sunday. 1 Corinthians 15:17 says, "And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins." Obviously both statements cannot be true. On...

Christmas Isn't an End in Itself

At Christmas, we celebrate the miracle of the Incarnation: the God of heaven and earth, the Lord of Hosts, Creator of all things, took on flesh. The Son of the Most High left behind the glories of heaven, leaving behind his exalted place with the Father, and descended to the earth to live among us....

Legalism Misidentifies the Enemy

Clint’s excellent sermon last week unpacked the question of Christian liberty versus the two “ditches” of legalism and license. In light of that theme, I can’t help looking at the column I read as something of a parable for sanctification. ...

Why Christ Cannot Fail to Save

In this final installment in our series examining the Trinity and Oneness Pentecostalism, we look at how the mediatorial ministry of Christ in heaven is crucial for salvation, according to the book of Hebrews. By his eternal life, permitting him to intercede forever on our behalf, Jesus Christ can “save us to the uttermost.”...

How the Trinity Makes Salvation Possible

Psalm 110 has tremendous implications for the doctrine of the Trinity, and especially for the doctrine of Christ as our Mediator with God. As it is quoted in Hebrews twice in establishing the superiority of Christ, it is a natural place to begin when looking at Christ’s role as our Mediator....
