The world around us is anxiously seeking for justice as if that is something that could be found apart from God. But as Christians, we must realize the truth. God's justice is not something we fight for but something we rest in and wait on. Christians do not rise up, we rest. We do not chant mantras, we cry out in prayer. We do not tote picket signs and riots we wait for the righteous hand of God. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #Justice #2020vision #quotestagram #quotestoliveby #quotesoftheday #quotes #sermon #Sermonquotes #theology #doctrine #christianmemes #theologymatters #heaven #sanctification #refomedbaptist #Reformed #reformedtheology #reformedquotes #reformedmemes #doctrinal #Christian #calvinist #Gospel #Gospeltruth #Christianquotes #Christianposts #Christianliving #truthbetold #Jesus #JesusChrist

"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths." ~ 2 Timothy 4:3‭-‬4 NIV . #paulwasher #paulwasherquotes #paulwashersermons #bibletruth #bible #biblequotes #biblestudy #dailybible #dailybiblereading #dailyquote #christianquotes #christian #christianposts #truth #mysavior #jesuschrist #_live_forchrist_ #doctrine #salvation #faith #amen #instagram

Christian, has your joy been increasing or decreasing? - Due to current political and sociological events, you might be consuming hundreds of bits of news and information that the human mind was never meant to absorb at such capacities thanks to the interwebs. You might believe you’re doing the right thing because one should stay up to date, no? - But before you know it, that pesky anxiety bug creeps into your heart and after many days of your screen time and bible reading time ratio being 100:1, you are a walking mess of anger and fear and you just can’t seem to figure out why you’re in a funk. 🤔 - Paul writes in Romans that by the power of the Holy Spirit we should be ABOUNDING in hope. Not sprinkled with hope. Not dusted with hope. Not sitting next to hope all shy waiting for hope to speak to us first. Abounding in it. - How does one abound in hope? “in believing” Paul says. - Believe the Gospel. More seasoned Christians can often times take the Gospel for granted without realizing it. Yet, it is the foundation for our hope. Biblical hope is not “mere wish projection” as the RSB puts it, but an ASSURANCE of what is to come. Rest assured in the finished work of Christ. Christ did the work of defeating sin once and for all. Look to your Conqueror in hope. Rejoice in His resurrection and be excited in waiting for His coming kingdom where “death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” - The Holy Spirit that dwells in the believer is the assurance of the Kingdom to come. Not only is the Spirit a sign of hope, but the sustainer of hope. And hope in the sovereign Creator who loved us enough to send His Son to die breeds pure joy. - Stop giving the devil a foothold in your mind. Don’t get distracted by the latest article. Be faithful where God has planted you and serve, serve, serve. Pray without ceasing, confess your sins, BE IN THE WORD, sit under the weekly preaching of God’s Word, be in fellowship and serve your brother and sisters in Christ and praise Jesus. All will be well.

Somebody tell @bethelmusic and @elevationworship ! . I’m sure you’ve heard it before: someone’ll say “I didn’t really enjoy worship today” or “I wasn’t really feeling that worship service.” ....I just want to remind them: We weren’t worshipping you! . Worship and praise music today has become all about us! Our emotions, our experiences, our feelings, and our desires. . In reality we should be asking, “Was God really glorified in our worship today?” Because worship is fundamentally about Him, not us! . God’s glory and honor > our emotions and experiences🙏 . . #doctrine #elevationworship #theologymatters #biblicaltruth #reformeddoctrine #worship #worshipmusic #worshipleader #solascriptura #churchcamp #experiences #experientialism #christiantheology #christianity #biblicaltheology #scripturealone #elevation #worshipteam #liveforjesus #praisegod #jesus #biblical #jesuschrist #scripture #bethel #bethelmusic #churchretreat #reformed #theology #reformedtheology

The Constitution of a country represents the underside norm comprising of fundamental principles, laying down the inspiration of civil society. While on the face of it, it appears that the Constitution of India 1950 is neither too flexible nor too rigid in practice; it has been amended almost 100 times in 62 years. However, the extent of flexibility embraced by a constitution must be balanced by a necessity to preserve the sanctity of the Constitution as a far better law. The phrase ‘basic structure’ itself cannot be found within the Constitution.....

For every one look at your sin, take 10 looks at Christ. He deals gently with us even when we find ourselves sinful. His heart is beating for us. He so deeply desires our repentance that he deals gently with us, not harshly. . Do you feel trapped in your sin this morning? Nervous that if you return you will only be met with harshness? Then take another look at how Christ has shown himself. He hates sin. But he loves you. And will deal gently with you in the journey of growth. . . #christ #jesus #dailybible #dailymotivation #dailybibleverse #cslewisquotes #reformedtheology #doctrinesofgrace #doctrine #mercy #jesussaves #helpforchristians #prayer

Latest article out 🚨🚨 link in bio.... . From the moment we open the Bible we can’t ignore God calling man to obey. We see Adam & Eve being told not to eat from “that” tree, we see Abraham being told to leave his father’s house to a place he did not know, Moses was called out of a burning bush and told to free a people and lead them through the wilderness to a land he did not know. And as we read on we see many more instances in which God calls man/woman to obey.

“I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. - Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. - I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. - O Lord, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.

🔥 God saved us, not by our own goodness (we have none! ), but by HIS goodness. This separates biblical Christianity from every other religion under the sun: we do not earn God's favor, he gives it freely on his Son's behalf.⠀ ⠀ Christ lived the life we couldn't live, died the death we deserved to die, rose victoriously over sin and death, ascended to the Father's right hand, and rules over the entire planet!⠀ We joyfully trust him as Savior. We joyfully submit to him as King.⠀ ⠀ Romans 4:4–5 (CSB ), "Now to the one who works, pay is not credited as a gift, but as something owed. But to the one who does not work, but believes on him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited for righteousness."⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #reformed #reformedtheology #chspurgeon #spurgeon #calvinism #calvinist #solideogloria #theology #faithalone #johncalvin #teologiareformada #gospelcentered #sounddoctrine #doctrine #charlesspurgeon

✝️ Our preaching must avoid man-centered behavior-modification, and should always focus on God-centered gospel transformation.⠀ ⠀ Our universe and our lives are made to center on God. When we live for ourselves, we are upending the order of the universe. When we fail to encourage others to live for Christ instead of themselves, we are upending the order of the universe.⠀ ⠀ In our pulpits and in our conversations, we must call people to fear, follow, trust, and obey the risen Christ.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #reformed #reformedtheology #chspurgeon #spurgeon #calvinism #calvinist #solideogloria #theology #faithalone #johncalvin #teologiareformada #gospelcentered #sounddoctrine #doctrine #charlesspurgeon

😩 The Bible is abundantly clear — complaining is a horrible sin. Our complaining offends God. Here are six biblical reasons that God hates complaining:⠀ ⠀ 𝟏. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬𝐧'𝐭 𝐯𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐝.⠀ Complaining is expressing to ourselves, to the world, and to God himself that God is not enough for us — we need more.⠀ ⠀ Paul's commentary on the complaints of the Israelites: "Now these things took place as examples for us, so that we will not desire evil things as they did. Don’t become idolaters as some of them were" (1 Corinthians 10:6–7, CSB ).⠀ ⠀ 𝟐. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬𝐧'𝐭 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐆𝐨𝐝.⠀ Complaining is rooted in a lack of trust that God will provide everything we need.⠀ ⠀ The Psalmist's commentary on the complaints of the Israelites: "They deliberately tested God, demanding the food they craved. They spoke against God, saying, 'Is God able to provide food in the wilderness?'" (Psalm 78:18–19 )⠀ ⠀ 𝟑. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬𝐧'𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐤 𝐆𝐨𝐝.⠀ "They forgot what he had done, the wondrous works he had shown them" (Psalm 78:11 ).⠀ ⠀ 𝟒. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐧 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐞𝐧𝐯𝐲, the sinful longing for what other people have.⠀ ⠀ 𝟓. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐧 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐝𝐞, believing that you deserve better than you have.⠀ ⠀ 𝟔. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐛𝐬𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐢𝐭 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐬 𝐮𝐬 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐞𝐱𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐥𝐲 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝.⠀ "Do everything without grumbling and arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world" (Philippians 2:14–15 ).⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #reformed #reformedtheology #chspurgeon #spurgeon #calvinism #calvinist #solideogloria #theology #faithalone #johncalvin #teologiareformada #gospelcentered #sounddoctrine #doctrine #charlesspurgeon

🛐 God loves to answer our prayers. Specifically, he answers praise that are fueled by faith and rooted in his word.⠀ ⠀ James 1:6 (CSB ), "...let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind."⠀ ⠀ Here's a longer Spurgeon excerpt: "He who prays without fervency does not pray at all. We cannot commune with God, who is a consuming fire, if there is no fire in our prayers. Many prayers fail of their errand because there is no faith in them. Prayers which are filled with doubt, are requests for refusal."⠀ ⠀ 📫 If you want to pray more faith-fueled, biblical prayers, the best way to learn is by listening to others pray. That's why I send the "Pray with Spurgeon" newsletter every weekday.⠀ Each morning, I send out a short prayer written by Spurgeon. Praying along with Spurgeon has helped shape my prayers in a more biblical direction — I hope these prayers are a blessing to you too!⠀ ⠀ 📮 You can subscribe at the link in my bio and start learning prayer from Spurgeon's example.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #reformed #reformedtheology #chspurgeon #spurgeon #calvinism #calvinist #solideogloria #theology #faithalone #johncalvin #teologiareformada #gospelcentered #sounddoctrine #doctrine #charlesspurgeon

🇺🇸 Today in the United States, we celebrate Independence Day. We thank God for the rich blessings that we have in our freedom and justice, but we must also mourn the grave injustices in our country.⠀ ⠀ Spurgeon was prohibited from coming to the United States in his own day, because his clear statements against slavery and for the equality of all men were received with such bitter hatred.⠀ Christians in our country gathered in large numbers to burn copies of Spurgeon's sermons. Dozens of newspapers and Christian publications lambasted Spurgeon. He was hated and accused of unfaithfulness to Christ. Why? Because he believed, and preached, that all men are created equal.⠀ ⠀ For those of you who believe that racial injustice in our country is a myth or trend over-hyped by the media: American Christians had massive blindspots in Spurgeon's day. Please be open to the possibility that you and I may have our own massive blindspots today.⠀ ⠀ So, in step with James 1:19–21, let's all commit to patiently listen to one another, learn from one another, and zealously pursue personal holiness and systemic justice.⠀ ⠀ James 1:19–21 (CSB ), "My dear brothers and sisters, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger, for human anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness. Therefore, ridding yourselves of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save your souls."⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #reformed #reformedtheology #chspurgeon #spurgeon #calvinism #calvinist #solideogloria #theology #faithalone #johncalvin #teologiareformada #gospelcentered #sounddoctrine #doctrine #charlesspurgeon

But by Faith alone, through Grace alone, by Jesus Christ who is God alone. Titus 3:5 / Ephesians 2:8-9 / Galatians 2:16 / 2Corinthians 5:7 / 1 John 5:20 - 1 John 5:20 ) "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life."
