Psalms #3b – Psalm 78 (Bob Hartman)

A few months ago we did a post about change and that was received very well. This post is going to be different as I am going to raise different points and solutions if you worry about or fear change. You can find our other post on change here.

We all go through change, if nothing changed life would be boring and we’d never get anywhere in life. Sometimes we go through huge changes in our lives and sometimes they’re fairly small. Here is the second part of the post. Find the first part here.

The Psalms #1 – Introduction

The Book of Psalms is one of the most popular books in the Bible for Christians. This is mainly because it covers so many different topics of a Christian’s life. Now you might think that the Psalms are a very old and out of date book, but as you will find out in this series, it still applies to our lives today. This is most visible in worship. Many traditional hymns and also contemporary Christian worship songs use the Psalms to formulate their lyrics. You can listen to many of these songs on our Worship Songs page. We will find out how the Psalms tell prophesies of later events in the Bible. We will uncover the truth behind some of the most well-known Psalms, who wrote them and when. Not only that, but we will be looking at well-known Christian writers and preachers favourite and helpful Psalms. Look forward to all of that and more in this series.

Free Will vs Sin

sin

I’m sure many of you reading this post probably think this quite often, even us here at RCG do. God gave us humans something very precious that if we didn’t have, we would effectively be robots. Free Will. However, with Free Will come the consequences of sin. Today, nobody walking planet earth is perfect. Not one person. The only person who has ever been perfect was the Lord Jesus. The Bible verse below tells us that for for Jesus to die on the cross to forgive us of the sin in our lives, he had to be free of all sin. To do this, he resisted temptation many times, but most famously in the desert.

He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

1 John 3;5

Watch the video below and I hope it makes you realize that God made a beautifully perfect earth and put his perfect species on it and all we do give in to sin.

However,

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Two words

John 11:35 “Jesus wept”

As most of you probably know John 11:35 is the shortest verse in the bible however it is far from being unimportant.
Lazarus was dead he had been in the tomb for four days when, Jesus arrived Mary and Martha came to greet him as they walked to the tomb Jesus wept.
He cried because a man he loved was dead. People cry when loved ones die maybe you’ve experienced that feeling when someone you know and love has died. From this we know Jesus is human however when he raises Lazarus from the dead we know he is also fully god. When Jesus came down to earth he became a man by doing this he humbled himself. Later on he would do this again by dying for us on the cross.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NIV)
