In Christ Alone

When a man loves a woman, when a woman loves a man, it can be such a sweet, sweet thing… unless it goes all bitter. Romance & marriage is definitely not an exact science, there are many struggles involved. It’s a universal theme yet goes to another dimension in the spiritual struggle of holy living in a polluted world. It is God who completes us in Christ & He provides for all that we need in body & soul, single or married…God provides.

On this side of heaven in this sin cursed yet not forsaken world we see a whole host of ideas that could lead us astray regarding sexuality, much of it celebrated & praised as it is transmitted across cables & clouds. Make way for adultery, sex before marriage, homosexuality…there is no harm in it, get off on it if you like, seems to be the liberated message as people are encouraged to lock into desires that fill their hearts & minds. In fact society should offer comfort & acceptance as if these things are normal & good. 1 Peter 4:1

In Christ Alone

Heidelburg Catechism Lord’s Day 9
26. Q. What do you believe when you say: I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth?

A. That the eternal Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who of nothing made heaven and earth with all that is in them, who likewise upholds and governs the same by his eternal counsel and providence, is for the sake of Christ his Son my God and my Father; in whom I so trust as to have no doubt that he will provide me with all things necessary for body and soul; and further, that whatever evil he sends upon me in this vale of tears, he will turn to my good; for he is able to do it, being almighty God, and willing also, being a faithful Father.
