"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

Two Completed Projects

I was involved with two projects this week. First of all, something that I believe, over time, will prove to be one of the most important resources I have made, explaining the order of worship in our service (or liturgy). It answers the vital question “why do we do what we do when we gather as the people of God?” It took a lot of work to put together but it is a recording that I hope will be a blessing to many. You will find it at this link.

Then just yesterday, I joined with BRIDGE Radio to answer common objections to the Reformed doctrine of election. Does John 3:16 teach everyone has the ability to come to saving faith within themselves? Is 2 Peter 3:9 the death blow to God's Sovereignty? You can tune in here to find out.

God bless,
John Samson
