Greetings and welcome! This is our daily devotional for November 8th, 2023. Today we continue our study in the Book of Acts in chapter 16 with Paul and Silas exercising their rights as Roman citizens and also the principle of obeying God, rather than men. Thanks for joining us!
A look at "Christian Nationalism" and how it relates to biblical christianity and our roles as believers. How we are to interact with government, society, and authorities as biblical pilgrims on this earth? What does history teach us?
Pastor prepares his family for the morning sermon at Covenant PCA in Panama City in Galatians 3:15–25. The revelation of the law has always been within the context of the promise made to Christ, into which we come by a faith that unites us to Him.
How are we to interact with wicked rulers and neighbors? Titus 3:1–2 looks forward to the second serial reading of in morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these three verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that Christians should adorn the gospel by being godly citizens and neighbors.
In the Light of Civil Law, we are to render obedience, but in relation to men under that law, we are to owe to them love. Love of mankind is the root and cause of civil obedience and a deterrent to the wicked as well as a testimony of Christ's work in the believer.
Christians have a complicated relationship with obedience. Those who strive to obey Jesus in everything at all times are often labeled "legalists." Others acts as if obedience is completely optional, since salvation is by grace through faith. Many are neither legalists nor antinomians, but simply pick and choose which commands of Scripture to obey. Who's right? What are we supposed to obey? And how can we do that?
Pastor teaches his family a selection from "the Proverb of the day." In this verse of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us to rest in and imitate Christ for the sake of those under our own authority, and to rejoice as those who are under His own authority.
As we begin to study the doctrine of justification, we take a detour in order to study the law of God. Justification has much to do with the law, and it's critical to understand what the law can and cannot do. In this study, we look at the three divisions of the law of God as revealed by God to Moses.
In this episode, Dr. Strange continues his assessment of Christian Nationalism, exploring definitions of essential terms, such as (obviously) "nationalism," "Christian," and others, and addressing whether Stephen Wolfe, author of The Case for Christian Nationalism, uses Scripture to make his case.
Why must manmade hopes for deliverance fail? Isaiah 21 looks forward to the first serial reading in morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these seventeen verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that manmade hope for deliverance must fail, because even the troubles of this world are part of God's design to bring forth the lasting fruit of His chosen people.
