Maybe you’ve heard the idea that God has pre-selected some to believe and be saved, while others have no chance, because they were not “chosen” by God.
If true, this confusing belief system would lead to all kinds of concerning questions:
- How could one ever really know for sure if they are “picked”?
- How could evangelism be essential if the saved are already chosen?
- Should believers be resigned to engage in a Plato-Socrates style debate over “fate” versus “free will” like so many do today?
Rest assured that there are solid solutions to the predestination puzzle. And in this full-length message, I share the simple truth that may bring you the clarity you’ve been looking for!
If Christians are not under the Law, then how does God lead us?
Does our freedom from the Law include the Ten Commandments?
How does God’s grace keep us from a life of chaos and lawlessness?
These questions and more are addressed in this new message, “The Truth About Law and Grace.”
Ever wondered how we could be the righteousness of God and yet still be learning and growing and experiencing renewal of the mind along the way?
In this video message, I discuss what has already happened and what is still happening. It’s an important look at both the finished work of Christ and the progressive adventure of the Christian life.

Baptized for the dead? Die daily? What do these expressions really mean and what is our personal takeaway from this controversial passage in 1 Corinthians 15?
Find out in this video message!
Often in the Christian life we go through periods of time in which we don’t feel much. We might feel numb. We might even feel negative about spiritual matters.
Some have stories of how they once felt so close to God and then slowly those feelings began to fade. Others never felt much to begin with compared to the experiences of those around them.
In this message titled “I Don’t Feel Anything!” I talk about the healthy way forward when we don’t feel the way that we think we should.
I hope this message is an encouragement to you!
Fear of death. Fear of judgment. Fear of loss of salvation.
There are so many flavors of fear that can take hold in our lives.
In this message, I address fear and show how the message of God’s grace can put to rest all our fears.
Recently, I taught on a powerful Bible passage that addresses some fascinating questions:
- Why is Creation groaning and waiting on us?

You are always in the Spirit, even when you walk by the flesh. Find out more in this liberating look at Romans 8!
“I’m doing the very thing that I don’t want to do”- this was a struggle documented in Romans 7. But is this struggle the destiny of every Christian? Is it all that we can expect?
Here I present six truths and three questions that together highlight the true context of Paul’s Romans 7 struggle.
Find out what this means for you!
Some say there’s no real victory over sin on this side of heaven. And they cite Paul’s struggle in Romans 7 as evidence. If the Apostle Paul couldn’t say “no” to coveting, then how is there any real hope for us?
But the truth is that Romans 7 is not the normal Christian life by any stretch. No, it’s actually just the inevitable outcome for anyone – saved or lost – who puts themselves under the Law.
On top of that, here I present some compelling evidence that Paul’s Romans 7 story is actually his experience before he met Jesus Christ. This, all the more, bolsters the liberating truth that we indeed have genuine hope on this side of heaven.

10 Rarely do believers hear messages on their righteousness. When they do, these messages are often couched in “that’s just how God sees us.”
But does God see reality? Are you really righteous? And how does this relate to you being born of the Spirit?
In this full-length message, I address 10 myths that hinder us from realizing our righteousness.
Some say that God is hurling disaster at us to test our faith. Others say that any difficulty in our experience may be a result of our lack of faith.
In this full-length message, I address both of these errors and discuss the truth about trouble.

Many of the questions we receive on our radio broadcast relate to whether or not there is a limit to God’s love and grace. Many Christians are just plain unsure. Even though we use the word “agape” to describe God’s love, we still have our doubts about whether or not we might be able to ruin the “deal” we have with God by our performance.
