THE TRAINING OF GRACE

I fear many Christians have the notion that we are saved by grace, but we are trained for righteousness by legalism. This is a serious mistake for Christians and it misses one of the most wonderful truths of scripture. In Titus Chapter 2 Paul tells us the grace of God trains us for Godly living. Look with me at these verses.“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and…See More

CALLING MYSELF A FUNDAMENTALIST

Years ago I wrote an article for a state denominational paper beginning with the statement, “I was going to title this article, 'I Call Myself A Fundamentalist.’ But I didn't want to spend the next six months explaining to my friends that I don't own an assault rifle or any plastic explosives.” Even then few pastors in my denomination would call themselves Fundamentalists, although I didn't know one who would reject the basic tenets of the faith. I tried to be careful not to call myself a…See More

Andrew R. Wheeler commented on David Young's blog post PRAYER AND FORGIVENESS
"David, I quite agree that forgiveness is necessary for healing.  What I fear is that many believers get the order reversed.  We believe we need to experience healing before we can forgive.  Whether that healing is physical, emotional,…"

BRIGHT SPARKS OF HOPE

When our daughter was barely a teenager she came down with a rare life-threatening disease. That was a terrible time for us. We spent many months in and out of Children's Hospital in Seattle. We longed for a word from God that her life would be spared. But God was silent. That is not quite true. That was a very hot time of God speaking to us, showing us things in Scripture, and ministering to our lives. But we were desperate for a word of assurance about our daughter's condition. And about…See More

Malva Birch commented on David Young's blog post PRAYER AND FORGIVENESS
"Andrew, this clarifies something I've been thinking about for years. As hard as it can be sometimes, we have to forgive in order to obey God - and He always knows best. The result is being set free, but that is not the main purpose, as Dave…"

David Young commented on David Young's blog post PRAYER AND FORGIVENESS
"Well said, Andrew. I think that is at the heart of forgiveness. Of course, this does not eleminate the struggle to forgive, but we need to start the struggle immediately. Actually, I do think forgiveness is necessary for healing, but healing is…"

Andrew R. Wheeler commented on David Young's blog post PRAYER AND FORGIVENESS

PRAYER AND FORGIVENESS

I fear that the church in these days, especially in the West, has become shallow in our understanding and practice of forgiveness. We sometimes confuse forgiveness with overlooking sins. And agape* love in the church family certainly covers over a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8) But the depth of forgiveness in the church family must be more than putting up with one another's faults and weaknesses. Nor is forgiveness the same as understanding. I have heard someone say, “Well, I can forgive him…See More

WHEN DID THESE THINGS TAKE PLACE?

Recently I have been memorizing and reveling in some wonderful verses from the book of Revelation. Actually, one of them, Revelation 13:8, has been a favorite of mine for many years. But it is a verse that can confuse and disturb. My dealing with it today may disturb you. There are, in fact, two fairly different ways this verse can be translated into English. I want you to see the emphasis of these two translations as a foundation for what I have to say. We can see one in the English Standard…See More

THY WORD

THY WORDWhat comes to your mind when you hear the phrase, “Thy Word?” Many of you think of the scripture him, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet.” others of you have memorized from childhood Psalm 119:11 that begins, “Thy word have I hid in my heart.”This is what to talk to you about today. I am doing something right now that I would really like to encourage other people to do, starting with you. I am trying to memorize the entire New Testament, verse by verse and chapter by chapter. Here is how…See More

MY WORDS INSCRIBED IN ROCK

Have you ever expressed this cry from the book of Job in the Old Testament?“Oh that my words were written!Oh that they were inscribed in a book!Oh that with an iron pen and lead    they were engraved in the rock forever!For I know that my Redeemer lives,    and at the last he will stand upon the earth.And after my skin has been thus destroyed,    yet in my flesh I shall see God,whom I shall see for myself,    and my eyes shall behold, and not another.    My heart faints within me!JOB…See More

David, I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you - have been sick for a couple of weeks and not on PN.  Try this link for the China prayer cast - I got it directly from YouTube.

David, apologies for taking so long to get back to you - my recent out-of-state move has pretty much dominated my time and I'm only now getting back to being on PN consistently.  I appreciate what you shared and the heart of integrity behind it.  You are a great example to me! 

I would also say that praying for the SC justices by name and simply leaving in God's hands how he wants to work in their lives and through their rulings is a very valid way to pray.  The strength of our prayers is not in the words, but in the One to whom we pray - not that you need to hear that from me!!
