Join our mailing listSo how was Paul living? Verse 20: 'I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me'. He was not living, trying to obey the commands of God as such - though we must, if we love Him, we keep His Commandments - but that is the key: it all begins with the love of God shed abroad in our hearts by faith, through the grace of God. It comes through renewal and redemption, it comes through rebirth, it comes through that wonderful conversion whereby we repent of our sins and our old self is nailed to the cross where Jesus died, and the resurrection life of Jesus Christ comes to live and reside in us. The more we release ourselves to that life, the more we will know victory over sin. Grace is not disgrace, it's not turning the grace into lasciviousness or lawlessness. You cannot claim God's grace and then carry on in sin and make grace an excuse! God's grace sets free from sin, but it's not law and don't ever make it be - it's grace. So, how are you living? How are you living your Christian life? Are you building again those things which have been destroyed at the cross? Are you trying to obey commands just in the flesh? [Listen or read more...]

Sailing With Paul: Charting The Christian Voyage
by Harry A. Ironside
Sailing With Paul: Charting The Christian Voyage
Take a trip with the Apostle Paul through the fundamentals of the Christian life. Moving through eighteen points of interest, Dr. Ironside leads us on a journey through Paul's teachings on subjects such as Conversion, Forgiveness, Redemption, Justification and Sanctification - concluding with 'The Voyage Ended: The Judgment Seat of Christ'. Each section is brief enough to be easily read, simple enough to be clearly understood, and pointed enough to encourage the spiritual traveller to press on in their journey with Christ.

This book makes an excellent 'handbook' for new believers, but will also refresh those who have been long on the journey, and is perfect for group or individual study.

From the introduction: "Do you sail with Paul? It is not now a question of temporal, but of eternal salvation. The voyage I have in mind is not from one earthly port to another, but that vastly more important voyage from earth to Heaven, from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. One thing is certain: You are on a voyage, sailing over the sea of time, bound for eternity. What is it to sail with Paul? It is to know Paul's Saviour and to share Paul's blessings".
