What Child Is This?

  • December 19, 2010 | Brad Baugham | Matthew 1:1-21

We’re commanded to dramatize neither his birth nor his life, but only his death. It’s by his death he wishes to be remembered above all else. —John Stott


Jesus Became Our Curse

Rejoice, the Lord is King!

  • November 14, 2010 | Brad Baugham | Psalm 97

Sam lay back, and stared with open mouth, and for a moment, between bewilderment and great joy, he could not answer. At last he gasped: “Gandalf! I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue? What’s happened to the world?”
J. R. R. Tolkien, Return of the King


An Appropriate Response to Grace

  • November 7, 2010 | Brad Baugham | Psalm 100

I had never noticed that all enjoyment spontaneously overflows into praise. The world rings with praise — lovers praising their mistresses, readers praising their favorite poet, walkers praising the countryside, players praising their favorite game — praise of weather, wines, dishes, actors, motors, horses, colleges, countries, historical personages, children, flowers, mountains, rare stamps, rare beetles, even sometimes politicians or scholars. I had not noticed how the humblest, and at the same time most balanced and capacious minds, praised most, while the cranks, misfits, and malcontents praised least. – C. S. Lewis


What Is Justification?

  • October 31, 2010 | Michael Barrett | Romans 3:21-26, 5:12-21

Christ, having been made ours, makes us sharers with him in the gifts with which he has been endowed. We do not, therefore, contemplate him outside ourselves from afar in order that his righteousness may be imputed to us but because we put on Christ and are engrafted into his body—in short, because he deigns to make us one with him. For this reason, we glory that we have fellowship of righteousness with him. – John Calvin


God’s Priority: The Progress of the Gospel

  • October 24, 2010 | Doug Payne | Philippians 1:12-18

The gospel is boldly advancing under the contested reign and inevitable victory of Jesus the king. This side of Jesus’ death and resurrection, all of God’s sovereignty is mediated exclusively through King Jesus… . Christ “must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet” (1Co 15:25). That presupposes the reign is still contested, and still advances. This is of a piece with Jesus’ claim, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Mt 16:18). But one day, the final enemy, death itself, will die, and Jesus’ mediatorial kingship will end. God will be all in all. – D. A. Carson
