A Little Story about Jack and Diane, Grace for the Moment with Joe

How great and deplorable is our sin? We are dogs! How unfathomable and undeserved is the love of Christ? It is beyond description. It is radical. It is crazy. It is too great for words. However, perhaps the following stories will help convey the unconditional, undying, undeserved, covenantal love of God for sinners.

I Won The Lottery And Didn’t Even Play, Grace for the Moment with Joe

Why are some interested in the Bible while others belittle it? Why are some moved by the Gospel while others mock it? In response to Jesus, why did many give up their lives while many more sought to take the life of Jesus? Why has God chosen to show sovereign grace to some while leaving others under the influence of their depraved free will? I do not know. I have no answer. But I cannot help giving thanks.

Repenting And I Love It, Grace for the Moment with Joe

Some ask why repent and say, “has not Jesus forgiven us even before we ask?” In repenting, we are continually reminded that we are nothing unto ourselves and as such, when we are quicker to repent we are also quicker to forgive others, just as God forgives us. In repenting, God blesses us with increased thanksgiving and joy. Listen in as Joe explains more.

Enjoying the First Coming but Longing for the Second, Grace for the Moment with Joe

Each Christmas for a brief time, all is right. Fellowship is going fine, Christ is being recognized more than at any other time of year. At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow.

Is Santa just?, Grace for the Moment with Joe

Santa can seem somewhat divine at least according to what some legends would lead us to believe, omniscient, everywhere, promises gifts for those being nice and coal for those being naughty. As Christians we receive the greatest gift of all, not because we deserve it, but because we are redeemed through Christ’s eternal sacrifice.

Listen Well and Hurt Less, Grace for the Moment with Joe

Through the prophet Jeremiah, God speaks to his people, “I spoke to you in your prosperity, but you said, ‘I will not listen.’ This has been your way from your youth, that you have not obeyed my voice.” (Jeremiah 22:21) Will we seek God, listen to God, and obey his voice in our days of prosperity, or will we be fools who only listen to God when he lovingly disciplines and hurts us? God will not leave us alone. He will not allow his children to walk through this life without getting their attention, allegiance, and affection. Let us learn to pant for God in the good days, as we are forced to pant for God in the days of tribulation.

The Bigger the God the Smaller the Problem, Grace for the Moment with Joe

Quite often, when encountering serious trials in this life, our minds begin to whirl, our problems appear to be gigantic, and our God appears to be so small. While it is true that we often think such thoughts, these thoughts which we think are not true. In the words of one theologian, “Such conclusions come from the pit of hell, and they smell like smoke.” So, what ought we to do when our problems seem large and our God seems small? David will help us in Psalm 63.
