The Spirit Inside You is Better than Jesus Beside You

Luke begins the book of Acts with a surprising statement. He says that in his former book—the Gospel of Luke—he “wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach” (Acts 1:1 ESV). The implication is that Acts records what Jesus is continuing to do. It’s not that in the Gospels Jesus worked, and now we, in his absence, work for him; during his incarnation Jesus worked through his earthly body and now he works through us.

doctrines of grace sanctification

I was at a get-together the other night and someone asked if anyone else had the experience of feeling guilty and not being able to tell if it was true guilt or if it came from the years of the superficial guilt over everything we were indoctrinated with by the weak religion of our youths. It was one of those moments where my chest tightened with excitement and my eyes widened. It’s a struggle I’ve had for years.

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. He knew it. His disciples knew it. When you realize what is really happening here, it just about takes the fun out of the party.

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?

The Path of the Cross

By: Steve Brown on Monday March 23, 2015

The source of almost all spiritual problems is an inappropriate effort to avoid the cross. When we, as the church, turn away from the cross, we miss the path that God gave us—the path to freedom, joy, faithfulness and forgiveness. It’s the only way there.

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.
