God’s Sovereignty Offers Me Peace from My Past—My Responsibility Offers Me Hope for My Future

January 20, 2017

When we talk about God’s sovereignty or our responsibility, too often we focus on the negative aspects of those truths. We say, “God’s sovereignty means I’m only a puppet, and my responsibility means I’m a prisoner to the mistakes I’ve made.” Not at all. These twin truths of God’s sovereignty and our responsibility offer great hope for those of us who have failed.

God’s Power Does Not Exempt You from Responsibility

January 19, 2017

God’s detailed plan for your life--a plan that includes even your failures--doesn’t mean that you are not responsible for your actions. How can we possibly reconcile God’s absolute power over our choices with our responsibility for those choices? God’s power does not exempt you from responsibility. We are ultimately responsible for the actions and the choices we make. Two statements cast further light on that.

God Has the Power to Accomplish His Plan for Your Life

January 18, 2017

God not only has a plan for your life, but He also has the power to accomplish His plan. Perhaps you believe in an all-powerful God who rules over the universe. You accept that God has a detailed plan encompassing every part of your life. But you wonder, “Don’t we, other people, or Satan occasionally do things that alter God’s preferred plan for our lives?” That question has led some people to believe that God actually has two wills.

God Has a Plan for Your Life

January 17, 2017

I’m amazed at the number of Christians who want to argue with the idea that God has a master plan for every person. They rebel at the thought that God has a detailed plan that includes every part of our lives. They want to think God is a passive spectator, watching what we do, hoping we make the right choices, and then altering His plan according to what we do or do not do.

Implications of Our Forgiveness

January 12, 2017

What does it mean for us that God is willing to forgive us of our sins? Because we have been forgiven by the Divine Director of our lives, we are free from God’s condemnation. Jesus paid the penalty for our sin, so we never have to worry that sometime in the future God is going to make us pay up. Our sin penalty has already been paid.

The Basis of Our Forgiveness

January 11, 2017

How can a holy God, who cannot allow sin to go unpunished, forgive sinners like you and me? Only God could have come up with the solution, and it is found in 2 Corinthians 5:21: “He [God] made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
