Palm Sunday

Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 15 April 2019

This weekend, believers around the world commemorated what is known as Palm Sunday. Those of us who still use old fashioned, paper calendars to keep track of life events recognize the phrase as an annual occurrence. While most people are aware of the title, it would be reasonable to speculate that far fewer knew why the day was named as such. And yet even fewer likely understand the Biblical significance of its origin. Join us for this episode of Words of Grace, in which we consider the Triumphal Entry of Christ into Jerusalem, from which the name "Palm Sunday" is derived.

The hope of every follower of Christ is Jesus' return. We yearn for the day when all sorrows and sufferings shall cease. This brings up an interesting question: What does the Bible actually say about Jesus' second coming? In today's broadcast, we search the scriptures for explicit statements concerning the return of Christ.

The Lord is Not Slack

Peter wrote in 2 Peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 

For believers in Sovereign Grace, this verse is usually one of the first prooftexts raised in opposition to concepts such as election or predestination. But does this verse really contradict the sovereignty of God in salvation? We insist, no it doesn't. In fact, as we explore the context of Peter's statement in this episode of Words of Grace, we see that rather than contradicting election, this text demands it!

Fruits of Life

Created on 27 March 2019

In our last broadcast, we considered the great assurances which the Bible promises to the believer; namely, that believers have passed from death to life (as attested by their faith), and have the promise of deliverance with Christ in the world to come. But this concept brings up an interesting thought: True righteous works are the fruits of eternal life. As preachers of old would say, good works and faith are evidences of a gracious state. Join us for this message on such fruits of salvation.

In our last broadcast, we shared the many promises given to believers found in John's gospel; declarative statements assuring deliverance for those who know God in the world to come. In this episode of Words of Grace, we revisit that theme of belief, answering the question from the scriptures, "what is faith?" If you've never considered the root of faith in the heart of a believer, you definitely want to listen.

Limited Atonement

Created on 04 March 2019

Last week on Words of Grace, we shared thoughts on the biblical reality of eternal security. Today, we consider the doctrine which "undergirds" this comforting concept, the doctrine of Limited Atonement. That is, because Jesus Christ came to save a people given to Him by His Father, and because His work for them is efficacious, there is eternal security for all ordained to eternal life.

Christ, From the Psalms

Most every Christian is familiar with the Book of Psalms, the hymn book of Ancient Israel. While they contain many devotional and experiential thoughts, we often fail to realize the doctrinal and especially Christological nature of the Psalms. In this episode of Words of Grace, we conduct a brief survey, merely scratching the surface of such Messianic Psalms.

How is a Disciple to endure persecution or unfair criticism? James' exhortation and encouragement to those in such a predicament can be summed up in a word: Patience! While many of us think of the concept of patience as having it's setting in annoyance or inconvenience, it's Biblical usage is often centered in the context of sufferings. James instructs us to be patient, as we await the return of our Lord Jesus, who even judge our persecutors!

None of us know the future. And yet, sometimes men will brag about their future exploits with such certainty as if they were already accomplished. Truly, the tongue, though small, boasts of many great things. In this episode of Words of Grace, we consider James' exhortation against presumptuous boasting, from two perspectives; 1) We know not what a day will bring, and 2) Even in our speech, we should bow the knee to God's sovereignty.

Amidst all the rebukes of the Apostle James we've read (and will read), a bright ray of hope appears in James chapter 4: Our solution, God's grace. Our source of strength, enabling us to mortify temptations, the tongue, judgmentalism, etc., is the unlimited grace of God.

The Bible is a book to be taken in context! That is to say, when God gave each portion of scripture, He did so with an intended meaning. As a consequence, a single passage cannot say one thing to one person, and something contradictory to another person.

When God created the Universe, he required no engineers, construction crews, or tools; He merely spoke it into existence.

The writer of Hebrews wrote that God is a "rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).
