Jottings – Evidences of Genuine Conversion


Commenting on Isaiah 1:26


It will be all God’s doing. God’s justifying grace in Christ leads to righteousness and steadfastness in the lives of the justified. These are the evidences of genuine conversion.

Jottings – There Is a Great Difference Between Being Occupied With What You Are Saved From And What You Are Saved To



There is a great difference between being occupied with what you are saved from, and what you are saved to. If you are occupied with the first, it is only relief that is before you; if with the second, you are occupied with the hope of the gospel. Our blessed Lord was not satisfied with getting us out of misery, but He obtained the Father’s house for us.

vlog: 1 Corinthians 1:8 – Blameless!



Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:8 KJV

Blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.” The preserving and protecting work of Christ in the believer is an amazing truth. Yet, what does it mean to be blameless before God? What exactly IS the day of our Lord Jesus and when will that day be?

Trust you are blessed as you consider these truths.

Jottings – Conversion or Turning Over A New Leaf?


“Conversion is not simply ‘turning over a new leaf,’ nor is it reforming one’s life, nor is it practicing religious rites, even the sacraments, but it is a turning to God Himself as we meet Him in Christ, to identify with Him as Savior/Lord, as our Redeemer and Master. To be converted is to take our place in humble relationship with the Master. He thereby changes us from being self-centered to being Christ-centered (Galatians 2:20).”

Myron S. Augsburger, Matthew, The Preacher’s Commentary Series, Vol. 24, ed. Lloyd J. Ogilvie (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Inc, 1982), p. 18.

Jottings – He Saw A Little Baby

Christmas Jottings

On Luke 2:26 – “God had promised Simeon that he would see the salvation of God. What did he see? He saw a little Baby. Salvation is a Person, and not something that you do. Salvation is a Person, and that Person is the Lord Jesus Christ. You either have Him, or you don’t have Him. You either trust Him, or you don’t trust Him.”

J. Vernon McGee, Thru the Bible Commentary, Vol. 4: Luke. electronic ed. Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1997, p. 254. [Italics original.]
