References: John 3Pastor Alistair Begg launched this year's Basics Conference, "do the work of an evangelist...", with a clear exposition of Jesus' well known encounter with Nicodemus in John 3. As Jesus steps onto the stage of human history, he wastes no time in elucidating what his purpose is: Repent and believe the good news! Whether preaching the gospel to a crowd on a mount or sharing the message of the gospel in a one-on-one encounter, Jesus always is aiming for more than just a renovation of character. Jesus preaches the good news about a new birth!
If God has redeemed us from our sin and given us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us against sin, then why do we go on sinning? In his book, The Enemy Within, Kris Lundgaard addresses this plaguing question by drawing upon the writings of Puritan author John Owen.
The gold Lungaard mines from John Owen’s work gives us hope, renewed love for Christ, and an approach to holiness through faith in Him in spite of our sinful state.
By revisiting the profound writings of John Owen, Lungaard updates the exposition, outlines, arguments and illustrations to bring this rich understanding of the Bible to the contemporary world.
