1. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus! We live in a world full of guilt and accusations. If you are covered with Christ's righteousness, then you have His righteousness in and for you and you cannot be condemned. Join Craig and Troy as they talk about all of these topics and more in Romans 8. Live by grace and not by the law.
  2. In truth, forgetting transgressions has little to do with forgiving others who wrong us.
  3. The absence of a feeling is not the absence of Christ, but as emotional, rational, and spiritual beings, we cannot say that the presence of Christ necessitates the absence of emotion.
  4. We all desperately need God’s only Son to take our place, to cleanse us by His blood, to wipe away our evil deeds.
  5. When we explain away God’s Word, we jettison the reality of our ominous diagnosis in the “Thou shall/shall nots” of the law, and with it the sweet cure in the, “This is My body/blood” of the Gospel.
  6. I don’t mean simply that I “loved the darkness rather than the light because my deeds were evil,” as Jesus says (John 3:19). While that is true, there was deeper magic at work. I loved the darkness because I feared all the good things in the light.
  7. As with so many things, regret can begin as something natural, even beneficial, as you struggle to recover from a wound in your past. But over time, regret can devolve from a sadness to a sickness.
  8. Every year, when this day rolls around, I turn over the stones of remembrance that litter my mind, to see what lurks beneath.
  9. For it is His law I have broken, His office in which I have failed, His people against whom I have sinned. All is from Him, so all I have taken, I have taken from Him. All others against whom I have sinned, I have sinned because they are of Him.
  10. I sin more in thirty minutes than those of the “victorious Christian life” supposedly sin in thirty years.
  11. Why, given all the things we wish God had told us, but didn’t, does he “waste our time” by stating the patently obvious? Was there, in Moses’ day, an outbreak of violence against the disabled?
  12. One day I walked about that place I had tried to make home. I realized it was a prison cell of my own devising.
