Why does sin continue to exist today?

Posted by on Dec 26, 2009 in John Piper, Sermons | 0 comments

For some reason I’ve been hearing and reading things related to this question lately.  “Why does God allow sin to continue to exist today?”  This year at Resolved 2009, John Piper preached two amazing sermons that beautifully answers this question.  Combined it’s almost 2 hours long, but it is definitely well spent.

God’s Sovereignty Over Satan’s Fall and How Sin Serves the Glory of Christ.

“A true faith in Jesus Christ will not suffer us to be idle. No, it is an active, lively, restless principle; it fills the heart, so that it cannot be easy till it is doing something for Jesus Christ.” – George Whitefield

“Philippians 1:29 Two gifts of God most don’t want. Faith: Because we want to cause it ourselves. Suffering: Because it hurts.” – John Piper

“Fear, lest, by forgetting what you are by nature, you also forget the need that you have of continual pardon, support, and supplies from the Spirit of grace, and so grow proud of your own abilities, or of what you have received from God.” – John Bunyan

“No matter where we are in our individual Christian lives, none of us has arrived. There is much spiritual maturity yet to be realized. There is much more that God can do in and through us . . . May you resolve to live your life not for self but for God.” – Steven J. Lawson

“Unless I am convicted by scripture and plain reason, I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other — my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.” – Martin Luther

“Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God.” – Martin Luther

“True religion is heart-work. We may wash the outside of the cup and the platter as long as we please, but if the inward parts be filthy, we are filthy altogether in the sight of God, for our hearts are more truly ourselves than our hands are; the very life of our being lies in the inner nature, and hence the imperative need of purity within.” – C.H. Spurgeon

“A man’s conversion is nothing, his believing is nothing, his profession is nothing unless he is made to be a new creature in Christ Jesus… If our faith has not brought with it the Holy Spirit, if, indeed, it is not the fruit of the Spirit, and we are not changed in nature and in life, then our faith is presumption, and our profession is a lie.” – C.H. Spurgeon

“If the concept of the modern self was that of a master of all it surveyed, the postmodern self is best described as a tourist. There is no destination; just personal journeys from nowhere to nowhere in particular.” – Michael Horton

“Pelagians and atheists are unwitting partners in a common belief: the inherent goodness of man. Both groups… are lost.” – Tony Miano

“Faith is the acknowledgment of the entire absence of all goodness in us, and the recognition of the cross as the substitute for all the want on our part. Faith saves, because it owns the complete salvation of another, and not because it contributes anything to that salvation …The whole work is His, not ours, from the first to last.” – Horatious Bonar

He made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men

Posted by on Dec 24, 2009 in Bible | 0 comments

Merry Christmas everyone!

4. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
6. who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7. but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
8. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
9. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
10. so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11. and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:4-11
