doctrines of grace sanctification

The triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem (Matthew 21 and Luke 19) always seemed strange to me. On the surface, it looks like just another party. There are the same smiles, excitement and celebration. But there is more going on here. In the midst of celebration, Jesus is preparing to die. He is going to be mocked, scourged and crucified.

Easter is almost here, again! It’s a bit earlier this year than usual and I’m really not ready for it. Which raises the question: how does a Christian get ready for Easter?

Jesus said it was better for him to leave and send the Spirit instead. For many Christians, that’s hard to believe. Who wouldn’t prefer walking with God in the flesh? Still, Jesus said it, so what’s missing in our experience of the indwelling power of God? If you’re feeling distant from God and you long for a more intimate and dynamic walk with him, don’t miss J.D. Greear on SBE.

I’ve been doing this for a lot of years. I’ve cleaned up after more suicides, buried more babies, stood by more deathbeds and watched the pain of more people than I can even remember. And each time it’s fresh and horrible.

God has done for us everything he required from us. We can rest in his finished work.
