To my boys Abe and Caleb, both of whom are far greater gifts than I could ever deserve. I hope this to be the first of many letters in which I intend to deliver to you the most important matters of truth, which in Godâ€™s sovereign providence have also been given to me.
All of the deepest matters of truth are found in the person and work of Christ. Christ, the eternal Son humbled himself to a cross to be killed by his own creatures. God demonstrated awesome humility in this action of grace. The Creator crucified! Remember he said that no one takes his life from him but he lays it down if his own accord? His resurrection and exaltation to the right hand of His Father came after the humiliation of the cross.
So we should take his example to heart. Consider these true biblical statements: I am a sinner yet I am a child of God; I am weak and needy yet I am a mighty warrior; I am a slave yet I am more than a conqueror. You see, Godâ€™s revelation demands his creatures glory in humility. To rule is to serve. The greatest in His kingdom make themselves to be the least.
Grace is what you need and grace is given to the humble. Pride will lead to a fall; the prideful are enemies of God. Resist the desire to make much of yourself to others. Make much of Christ and let Him exalt you in His good timing. Speak less than others and listen. Always stay teachable. When you fail and when you return to Christ, comfort others with the same mercy and grace youâ€™ve been shown.
May the peace of Christ rule in your hearts
I’m an adopted son of the Maker of all things via the finished work of Christ, a husband to my beautiful wife Rachel, and a father to my two awesome children Abram & Caleb. I’m also in the process of building this project called Second Adam and the New Creations which has a dual function, to bring theological songs as well a sound doctrinal literature. I seek to glorify God in expounding His Word in all truth and Holy wisdom by writing songs of weighty, theological themes in both simple and complex moods. I have a growing desire to write and teach and this blog serves as a good place to do just that. All truth meets at the top in Christ, what a joy it is to grow and learn in the Lord!
