“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” —Psalm 118:8
Redemption, salvation, and restoration are not God’s ultimate goal.
These he performs for the sake of something greater:
namely, the enjoyment he has in glorifying himself.
- John Piper
“Mr President, some of us wept for joy at your inauguatrion” J. Piper.
I hope the joyful weeping has turned to mournful weeping now John!!
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me, therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20.
We who have heard the good news and experienced freedom through Christ are responsible to proclaim it to others still enslaved by sin. Are we doing all we can to make sure that people get the message?
“THE GOSPEL IS ONLY GOOD NEWS IF IT GETS THERE IN TIME”
Heretics still abound.
‘But there were false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.
By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.’ 2 Peter 2:1-3
“Satan is the arch-counterfeiter. The Devil is now busy at work in the same field in which the Lord sowed the good seed. He is seeking to prevent the growth of the wheat by another plant, the tares, which closely resembles the wheat in appearance. In a word, by a process of imitation he is aiming to neutralize the Work of Christ. Therefore, as Christ has a Gospel, Satan has a gospel too; the latter being a clever counterfeit of the former. So closely does the gospel of Satan resemble that which it parodies, multitudes of the unsaved are deceived by it”.
