taken from march 16, 2006 i know i’ve blogged of this often, but this quote rightly says it so:J. C. RyleGod has married together justification and sanctification. They are distinct and different things beyond question, but one is never found without the other. All justified people are sanctified, and all sanctified are justified. What God has joined together let no man dare put asunder. Tell me not of your justification, unless you have also some marks of sanctification. Boast not of Christ’s work for you, unless you can show us the Spirit’s work in you. Think not that Christ and the Spirit can ever be divided.how powerful… with so much emphasis on God the Father and God the Son, it’s no wonder we lose wonder on God the Spirit. what is this role? triune deity means three equal faces of God, not one with more power over another. one cannot function in isolation, but everything that the father, son and spirit does is always intertwined, always with the intention and consideration of the other. it is not exercise, but it is the nature of God. and all that the Father does, the Son and the Spirit works to glorify […]

(taken from 2006) i continued further in hebrews since 2 sundays ago, i taught on hebrews 5, spiritual maturity. i wanted to finish hebrews since i only know it for that topic as well as its chapter on faith (ch.11). those are the only two chapters i’m familiar with so i read ahead to chapters 6-10. although the crux of the chapters led to Jesus being the ultimate High Priest and sacrifice, it alluded to a character in the old testament- Melchizedek, a king and priest of God who had blessed Abraham during his wars described in Genesis 14. This was still before the tribe of Levi was called by God as the ordinated priesthood to be set apart as the holy bearers of the Arc of the Covenant, and who performed strict sacrificial duties in the Tabernacle. Although i’ve heard of Melchizedek, this was the first time i researched who he was in the old testament and to what purpose he served as a mention and function to the New Testament. Who knew that a minor character of the old testament would resurface as a type for Jesus? i know there’s still debate going on as to whether he was a representation of […]
