"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." (2nd Corinthians 5:17 ESV)
It's a new year! So what could be timelier than to begin 2016 listening to John MacArthur describe The Portrait of a New Life!
But what exactly does a new life in Christ look like? Your listeners will find out this month on "Grace to You®," when John takes us to Ephesians and paints a picture of what it means to be a Christian. This study airs January 4-19.
Then, later this ...Read Full Post »

John MacArthur says "walk" is a New Testament term meaning a step at a time, a day at a time. It describes life, the progress, and the direction of life. Throughout the NT we read about a "worthy walk," "walking in love," "walking in truth"--all of that, John says, means "walking in Christ."
So how does one take that first step? And what does it mean to walk with Jesus Christ? It's a question many new believers have asked, even those who have been a Christian for decades. Likely many of your listeners are seeking answers to those ...Read Full Post »

"You are to be content because you understand that an utterly, and totally, and infinitely, supernaturally resourceful God will never leave you or forsake you." -John MacArthur
Shortly after I became a Christian, a fellow new believer asked me during a moment of despair, "How am I supposed to count it all joy when there's nothing to be joyful about!?" In my naiveté, the only response I could give her was the promise of Proverbs 3:5-6. I wasn't prepared to give her any other response as I was still discovering those answers for myself.
Today, however, I ...Read Full Post »

"Then the disciples came and asked him, 'Why do you speak to them in parables?' He answered, To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. The reason I speak to them in parables is that 'seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand." - Matthew 13:10-13

Shortly after the Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states, John MacArthur addressed his congregation and gave a powerful message in response to this ruling.
When I heard the news that Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses, was ordered to jail I recalled something John addressed in his message earlier this summer:
I received a letter from a judge this week-a very significant judge in a very significant court. And he said in his letter, "One of the duties of a judge is to marry people. I am now ...Read Full Post »

Whenever I head off on a road trip, I always set the destination into my GPS and keep a paper atlas in the trunk, just in case.
But recently, I started to going to Google Earth a few days before my trip to get a bird's-eye view of the entire journey. I check out the terrain, look for areas of congestion and even select "Street View" if I want to see exactly what specific turnoffs are going to look like when I arrive. Having a good overview helps me navigate the journey and, Lord willing, make it safely to ...
