If we don’t understand the covenants, we will not and cannot understand the Bible because we won’t understand how the story fits together.

Jesus teaches us that if we have the smallest amount of faith, God works on our behalf.
The Lord wants us to see how great our sin is, so we understand how great our salvation is.
When we read the whole Bible, we see that the Old Covenant has passed away.
We have good reasons for confidence in Paul’s letters. Praise the Lord!
We aren’t as concerned with the word “Calvinism” as we are with being faithful to Scripture.
God calls upon each one of us to be generous, sacrificial givers. He tells us that will increase your joy.
Anyone who wants to turn to Christ in repentance and faith, anyone who comes to him and says, “I’m sorry for my sins,” is forgiven.
In the beauty and completeness of God’s Word, Paul and James teach complementary, not contradictory, truths.
The whole Old Testament is realized in Christ. He is the second Adam, the true Israel, the prophet of the Lord, the Messiah, the Son of God and the Son of Man, and the Servant of the Lord.
The danger is that we will become man-centered instead of Word-centered, so that we prize the preacher more than what is preached.
