Colossians, though not Paul’s longest work by far, is extremely rich in Christology, to say the least. From chapter 1, we learn that Jesus was God incarnate, the creator of all things, the ruler of the universe, and the head of the church. In this edition of Words of Grace, we share a recent message from Flint River on these powerful statements of Christology.

Concluding our series on the life of King David, we consider a passage of scripture which refers to itself as his last words. Though the meaning of that label is debated, its message is not. Despite having a life of ups and downs, triumphs and failures, God had made an everlasting covenant with David and that was all his salvation and all his hope.

A continuation of last week’s message, we consider the “flip side of the coin” in the conclusion of Jesus’ interaction with the Rich Young Ruler. While salvation is impossible with men, all things are possible with God! Indeed, He saves us by His grace. Continue reading “All Things Are Possible With God!”

The young man mistakenly believed in salvation by good works, and Jesus absolutely tears down that false premise in a very powerful way. How then are sinners saved? Well, with men this is impossible. But not with God; for with God, all things are possible. Continue reading “Impossible”
Psalm 69 highlights one event of suffering in David’s life, as he faced persecution for his faith. But much of this special Psalm has a Greater David in mind, who suffered in a greater way for the salvation of Zion, the Lord Jesus Christ. Continue reading “A Psalm of Suffering”
Don’t we yearn to hear the sweet words from our Saviour, “thy sins be forgiven thee”? In this broadcast our message primarily focuses on the interaction between a woman of the city and the Lord Jesus, a story full of grace and forgiveness.

After such a climactic end to the gospel accounts, you might wonder “what could possibly be next?” In other words, to the early disciples, how could life be anything but mundane after such a phenomenal experience? But that was hardly the case! Invigorated by Jesus’ defeat of death itself, the disciples spent their lives obeying Jesus’ commission to go and make disciples. Continue reading “What Next?!”

“For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.” Isaiah 50:7
On Palm Sunday 2020, we considered the mindset of Christ as He went into Jerusalem, knowing all He would suffer for the sins of His people. And yet He went, He drank of the bitter cup, He finished the work. Continue reading “Face Set Like A Flint”
