It’s Not That We Love God But He Loved Us First
~ “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1 John 4:10 “We love him, because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
So many times we get in the mode of thinking, “why can’t I love others as God loves me?” And the reason we get into that mode of thinking is because of the flesh. And Satan stirs up the flesh in all of us. But here is the thing to remember if you are truly in Christ Jesus, is that Jesus lives in you, and through the Holy Spirit He does love that other person as Christ Jesus loves. We need to step back and realize that this flesh will always rear its ugly head, but then point out to ourselves that the Holy Spirit lives in us, and the Spirit does indeed love the other person as God loves us.

Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P20 (11-01-22)
If You Have the Son, You Have Eternal Life
~ “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:12
~ Eternal life begins the very moment you accept Jesus for what he did for you personally. When you realize that Jesus forgave you of all of your sins on the cross, and he is no longer counting your sins against you jump for joy. Now there is no more 1 John 1:9 for forgiveness. You solidify that in your own mind, instead of being tossed to and fro by every wave of doctrine. And you are either in the fellowship saved, or out of the fellowship lost. Don’t let someone convince you, you are bouncing in and out of fellowship. It’s a lie to teach that.
~ “Quite frankly, Bob, I hate to say that, but when I looked back on it, it was a stupid doctrine that I held on to have this thing of bouncing in and out of fellowship and constantly asking God to forgive me. And the reason it is is because … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P01 (09-19-22)
Law Was Given by Moses ~ Grace Was Given by Jesus Christ
~ The Contrast Between Law and Grace The Word of God makes abundant use of a very helpful teaching tool—contrasts: light and darkness, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan, life and death, lost and saved, just to name a few. And one very beautiful and educational contrast found throughout the Bible is law and grace.
Far from being a dull theological subject, law and grace is the very backbone of the gospel. The difference between the two is at the heart of how a person is saved and, equally important, how a person will live the Christian life. Law and grace is not a side issue, it winds its way into every nook and cranny of the Christian life.
Without a proper understanding of law and grace, a person will be “double minded, and unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8). The Bible will be hopelessly contradictory for such a person and he will be unable to relate to God with confidence and thanksgiving.

Be Controlled by the Love of God ~ Jesus is Love
~ “And when I talk about love, love is the only thing in the world, it’s ever going to change a heart for the good. We see that we’ve we’ve messed around with that, even in psychological studies to realize the effects of, of love on a person. And God knows that he’s the one who made us and He knows what it is, and what it does for you to know that you’re loved. And so folks, when Christ is talking about, and Paul is talking about the fact of coming to know the love of God, it’s because that is the emphasis of the Christian life, not what you’re doing. But not that we loved him, but he loved us first coming to grips with that. And then letting everything be a byproduct of that. In other words, you’re controlled by the love of God. That’s what it means to be filled to the measure with the fullness of God, it means to be controlled, by the love of God. It’s not mystical, it’s … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
