References: 1+Corinthians 9In Volume Three of Firm Foundations, Alistair Begg examines chapters seven, eight and nine of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Paul's desire for these people is that they might be presented mature in Christ Jesus and to that end he addresses a number of very practical elements of faith: Christian contentment; what it means to have freedom in Christ; what part love plays in that freedom; God's plan for marriage; the rights and responsibilities of a Christian; how we can strive to "become all things to all men," and finally how, as Christians living at the beginning of the 21st century, we should run the race of life.
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.
