  • The Proper Perspective
    Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ . . . —2 Corinthians 2:14The proper perspective of a servant of God must not simply be as near to the highest as he can get, but it must be the highest. Be careful that you vigorously maintain God’s perspective, and remember that […]
  • Be Generous with Your Master’s Money
    Jesus once told his disciples an odd parable where he used a dishonest manager as an example of how we should be shrewd with our money. What did he mean? Imagine his disciples Simon (the Zealot) and Matthew (the tax collector) discussing this parable. “Matthew, you know more about these things than I do. Why […]
  • Asking God For Wisdom
    Every single day delivers a fresh batch of tough issues and mysteries we cannot solve. We often struggle to find answers. But there’s a reliable Source we can turn to 24 / 7. We’re talking about Asking God for Wisdom on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!

God's way is best...

From the desk of the pastor:

Romans 11:33-“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” ESV

In our day and age there are many programs that promote an answer to your problem or the things that you struggle with by following these “three easy steps”. It appears that given enough time there could be a formula for everything and maybe these formulas would work if everyone were the same.

This same ideology has crept into the church as well. What areas in the church can we simplify into a neat little program or formula? In light of this I want you to seriously contemplate the words of Paul in Romans 11. God is infinitely deep in His knowledge and wisdom while man is shallow and clouded by his own pride.

God cannot be placed into a box or a lamp like a genie. God knows each one of us better then we know ourselves and has the exact thing that we need to live the Christian life to its fullness, yet we fight Him at every turn. We need to quit fighting God and trust Him because His ways are unsearchable and inscrutable. May we this day surrender some area in our lives to God because then we will gain the real victory, a custom fit way!
