If God merely permits us to do something, then one would also demand a metaphysical explanation on how it is possible for a creature to direct and control its own mind.

"We must never separate the Spirit and the Word. The Spirit speaks to us through the Word; so we should always doubt and query any supposed revelation that is not entirely consistent with the Word of God. Indeed the essence of wisdom is to reject altogether the term “revelation” as far as we are concerned, and speak only of “illumination.” The revelation has been given once and for all, and what we need and what by the grace of God we can have, and do have, is illumination by the Spirit to understand the Word."

~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“There is a tendency in a lot of theology today and probably in a lot of our own hearts to think that to the extent that we are active, God isn’t and to the extent that God is active, we’re not. And here is where a really broad historic tradition in the Christian faith says, no, to the extent that God is active, you are active. It’s exactly the opposite. He is at work in you, both to will and to do for his own good pleasure. So, yes, we are believing. That is our act. It is our act of faith, but it is not an autonomous act of faith. It is the gift of God. It’s something that God is giving us and that the Holy Spirit is working in us through the gospel.” - Michael Horton

Term to Learn

 

“True Saving Faith”

 

True saving faith is a faith that has its seat in the heart and is roots in the regenerate life. The seed of the faith is implanted by God in the heart in regeneration, and it is only after God has implanted this seed in the heart that man can actively exercise faith. The conscious exercise of it gradually forms a habit, and this becomes a powerful aid in the further exercise of faith. When the Bible speaks of this faith it generally, though not always, refers to it as an activity of man. It may be defined as a certain conviction, wrought in the heart by the Holy Spirit, as to the truth of the gospel, and a hearty reliance on the promises of God in Christ.

 

(Louis Berkhof, Manual of Christian Doctrine, p. 250)

"It is a true saying that believers should not act for life, but from life.

They must act as those that are not procuring life by their works,

but as such who have already received and derived life from Christ,

and act from the power and virtue received from Him."

 

--Walter Marshall, The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification

Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care. I heard it once a long time ago.

What life does to us, depends on what life finds in us!

If you are interested in maintaining a certain reputation, a certain social standing, a certain respect, or a certain popularity, do not follow Jesus. It's not hard to get along in the world .. as long as we keep the Gospel to ourselves!

Authentic Christian living is difficult and demanding. Expect that! Knowing that God has so much for you to enjoy for all eternity.

 As D.L. Moody observed, “The problem with a living sacrifice is that it keeps crawling off the altar.”

My favorite quote, just short of my love of Psalm 23:1 is from my hero stepfather, dad, is; If a young man is not a Bleeding Heart Liberal by the time he is twenty, he has no heart.  If he is not a Conservative by the time he is thirty-five, he has no brains.

1.

Q.

What is your only comfort in life and death?

A.
That I am not my own, 1
but belong with body and soul,
both in life and in death, 2
to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ. 3
He has fully paid for all my sins
with his precious blood, 4
and has set me free
from all the power of the devil. 5
He also preserves me in such a way 6
that without the will of my heavenly Father
not a hair can fall from my head; 7
indeed, all things must work together
for my salvation. 8
Therefore, by his Holy Spirit
he also assures me
of eternal life 9
and makes me heartily willing and ready
from now on to live for him. 10
