In this holiday series, Andrew presents some of the most powerful passages from the Gospel of John to highlight the person and work of Jesus Christ.
The year was 1988, and my youth pastor had said that Christ would be returning the next morning. The entire youth group was freaking out!
In this short video, I share this funny (and true!) story, because it says a lot about what many of us imagine will happen at the final judgment.
I hope it is an encouragement to you today!
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.”
This is the first message in Andrew’s series on Romans titled “The Gift Of Righteousness” (Romans 1:1-17).
This is the first message in Andrew’s series on 1 Peter titled “Safe Within His Love” (1 Peter 1:1-16).
Here I defend the gospel of grace and explain why I won’t add these disturbing doctrines to my teaching!
In this short video, I share a simple and straightforward way to go about forgiving other people. I have seen God use this easy-to-implement truth to repair broken families and to heal marriages and friendships.
Stop trying to “do” and start living in response to all that God has done.
We Christians often talk about getting close and staying close to God. But could it be that the very closeness we seek is something that we already possess?
In this full-length message, I invite you to dive deeply into one of the core truths of the Gospel- your spiritual union with Jesus Christ.
Is Peter saying that we can lose our salvation or lose our contentment if we willfully choose a pattern of sin?
This is the question at hand as I address this very challenging passage in second Peter.
Peter asked Jesus how many times he should forgive those who sin against him. Jesus replied with a grand total of 490 times (per person, per issue).
Then Jesus launched into a story about a king who punished a servant for not forgiving others the way that he had been forgiven (where’s the king’s forgiveness in that ending?).
In this full-length message, I address this controversial story and two other word pictures presented by Jesus.
Here, you’ll learn why it’s so important to maintain the proper tension and contrast between the stringency of the Law and the beauty of God’s grace.
Enjoy these intriguing snapshots from Jesus’ teaching!
In this final installment of the series, we see how God’s power is displayed in the midst of our weakness. I also discuss the one and only spiritual test that really matters.
This is the ninth message in Andrew’s series on Romans titled “The Gift Of Righteousness” (Romans 8:1-17).
What evidence is there that the New Covenant began at Jesus’s birth? Where can I find a good summary of the New Covenant in Scripture? What would lead you to say that the Old Covenant is totally set aside? These questions and more are addressed in the first message in Andrew’s series titled “Is That Really In the Bible?”
When we don’t have the words to express the pain we are feeling and we aren’t even aware of our deepest needs, God’s Spirit knows just how to pray for us!
When did the New Testament era really begin? How does this radical shift in our perspective impact our reading of the Bible? And how do we avoid distraction and stay focused on God’s grace?
These questions and more are addressed in this full-length teaching on “The Importance of Grace.” Enjoy!
Does God have an apology-based economy or a blood-based economy for sins?
In this short video, I talk about it.
With limitless grace and forgiveness, what will prevent us from setting world records for sin?
Find out in this in-depth look at your new identity in Christ!
1 John 4 is such a powerful passage about deceivers and believers, and truth versus error.
In this full-length message on 1 John 4, I address issues such as:
spiritual warfare from a grace perspective
how to recognize false teaching
once saved, always saved – is it truth or error?
the real identity of the antichrist(s)
I hope this message is an encouragement to you this weekend as you think about these matters, all the while remembering that “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.“
