The Holy Spirit Governs Us

In various places in the Scriptures we read about the works of the Holy Spirit. He encourages, convicts and guides. We read that we can sin against Him, that He works in unseen ways, mysterious ways, yes, but in material ways as well.

The Spirit of God is the Person of the Trinity who extends God’s presence into creation in such a way to order and complete what has been planned in the mind of God. The Father sends, the Son comes, the Spirit vindicates and testifies. The Father plans, the Son sacrifices and rises, and the Spirit applies. Read more

The Spirit Unites us to Jesus

In Baptism the Holy Spirit gives to us the gift and promise of new life. We have all read Jesus’ conversation with Nicodemus many many times and we remember how Jesus explains to this righteous, God-fearing Jew that there is something more required of him than simply submitting to Christ as a teacher. Jesus says, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” This does not make sense to Nicodemus, he asks “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” And Jesus replies, “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God”

To be born again, Jesus explains, is to be born of water and of Spirit. Jesus joins together two things that are necessary, then, for new life. Water and Spirit. To separate the two, to say that there is something to do with water that is essentially unrelated to something that the Spirit does, is to question Christ’s wisdom in putting the two together. If it was Jesus’ intent that we not mix our understanding of the application of water and the work of the Spirit, that we don’t see them as ordinarily one and the same work, he could have easily left out the water.

Test Sermon Post

This is a test of a sermon post.

Faith Works – Duane Garner

James 2:14-26

James does not pull any punches when he says that a merely intellectual faith apart from works is dead. He calls this sort of faith barren. It does not have the power to save or justify. James does not say that faith does not matter. In fact, he says faith is necessary, and vital. But the faith Read more

Perspectives on the Poor – Duane Garner

James 2:1-13
Who are the poor and what is our Christian responsibility toward them? How we answer the first question is going to determine how we respond to the second. We may be apt to think that the poor are anyone who has less stuff than we do. Or we may think that the poor are those people that Read more
