Every seventh year, the Lord commanded debts to be forgiven. Since it was a “seventh” year, it was sort of a “Sabbath” year, a year of rest and not having to make payments and worry about what you owed. Since Jesus is the fulfillment and completion and the true Sabbath rest, then in Him, our debts are forgiven once and for all.

Host: George Borghardt Four times in the epistles the worry that using your freedom as baptized children to sin is mentioned and cautioned against. That isn’t the Gospel’s fault however, that is your fault. When we are tempted to use the Gospel for sinful means that’s not the Gospel’s fault! Understand that only Christ alone for me on the cross saves me from my sins. The Law is there to teach us h...

Host: George Borghardt Christ came to this world not to abolish the Law and the Prophets, but instead to fulfill them. The Law and its condemnation of you dies with Calvary! The Law and the Prophets are fulfilled when Christ lays down His life for you. His death and resurrection is your death and resurrection, so that you might use the Law to love and serve your neighbor. Your Old Adam has been dr...

Host: George Borghardt Paul has the authority to command Philemon to do the right thing, but he doesn't deal with him that way. Paul wants his relationship with Philemon to be based on love rather than power. He would prefer to simply ASK Philemon to do the right thing, for the sake of Christ. Likewise, God wants to deal with you by means of the Gospel rather than by the Law. Additional Links: Las...

Foundations: You Are What Jesus Says You Are
by Katie Hill on June 8th, 2020
Christianity is not about you. It’s about Jesus for you. Christianity is not a challenge, it’s an identity. The light of the world is Jesus. He is the light that dwells in darkness, which the darkness cannot overcome. The light became the light of men. Now the light is you. .
