TOPIC INDEXPractical Theology (24)
Brad Gray
  1. Both now and forever, the bruised and crucified Lord nailed to a cross is our assurance of deliverance.
  2. One of the primary reasons we do not have to fear the future is because the future is certain in Christ.
  3. A group of unassuming apostles was given a graphic illustration of how the Lord would use them to turn the world right-side-up through the upside-down logic of grace.
  4. There is only one antidote to the venom of sin and death: the Savior who becomes the serpent so that every snake-bitten-sinner might live.
  5. Our comfort in this seemingly endless age of crisis after crisis is the inexhaustible hope of Jesus’s reversal.
  6. History is the painful realization that we aren’t the ones who can save the world but, rather, we’re the ones who get saved.
  7. God is not a preoccupied parent, he’s an invested and interested tender loving Father. He values what perplexes us.
  8. This world of unbearable grief and accidental calamity is being renewed and, soon, will be completely bereft of every pernicious foe.
  9. Even for idolatrous sellouts like you and me, God’s position has not changed. Even though we may have forgotten him, he never forgets us.
  10. The imprecatory psalms are like release valves for hurting souls. Their stanzas are God-given spaces in which we can bear our soul’s torment.
  11. The Psalms aren’t the clandestine successes of a faithful soul, but are the journaled hopes of a desperate soul — of one teetering on the edge of oblivion.
  12. Everyone is living as a naked sufferer who’s been duped into believing that the nakedness of suffering has to be covered up.
