DOING IN FAITH

Kevin DeYoung: Unless you are doing what you’re doing in faith, it cannot be pleasing to God. Unless your aim is for the glory of God, it is not ultimately a good work.

The Last Adam

The first Adam
• Born of dirt
• Tempted and failed
• Brought a curse
• Blamed his bride
• Died and buried

The last Adam
• Eternal Son of God
• Tempted and victorious
• Became a curse
• Took the blame for His bride
• Died and risen

God's Unfailing Love

God’s unfailing love for us is an objective fact affirmed over and over in the Scriptures. It is true whether we believe it or not. Our doubts do not destroy God’s love, nor does our faith create it. It originates in the very nature of God, who is love.

LEARN TO CALL

“You must learn to call on the Lord. Don’t sit all alone or lie on the couch, shaking your head and letting your thoughts torture you. Don’t worry about how to get out of your situation or brood about your terrible life, how miserable you feel, and what a bad person you are. Instead, say, “Get a grip on yourself, you lazy bum! Fall on your knees, and raise your hands and eyes toward heaven. Read a psalm. Say the Lord’s Prayer, and tearfully tell God what you need.” Martin Luther, Faith Alone: A Daily Devotional
