The Thrill of Seeing Christ Face-to-Face

SunOne day in Heaven, we will see Christ in His glory. The most exhilarating experiences on Earth, such as white-water rafting, skydiving, or extreme sports, will seem tame compared to the thrill of seeing Jesus. 

How Did Jesus Save Us?

CrossThis video is a clear, concise and engaging explanation of the Gospel in less than 3 minutes—don't miss it! You may want to pass it on to others.

Why the Cross?

CrossIn part one of this thoughtful two part video series on the atonement, EPM’s Julia Stager talks about why the cross was necessary.

Superheroes, Heresies and the God-man

Crossover with Julia Stager

One of our Eternal Perspective Ministries staff members is Julia Stager. Because of my respect for her as a person and as a biblical thinker, I asked Julia to begin what will be a regular video blog to express her personal, biblical and theological perspectives. 

The Cross Is Central

Three Crosses in a FieldOn the cross Jesus suffered the worst pain in history. Yet that event will forever remain at the center of our worship and wonder. Everything before the Cross points forward to it. Everything since the Cross points back to it. Everything that will last was purchased on it. Everything that matters hinges on it.

Entrusting Ourselves to Him Who Judges Justly

Sun starburst / photo credit: worldoflard via photopin cc (rounded corners added)Twenty years ago, I was named in an unwarranted lawsuit. My single greatest encouragement during that time was 1 Peter 2, which says of Jesus, “When he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly” (verse 23).

Did Jesus have a sin nature?

Did Jesus have a sin nature? // Jesus is “holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens” (Hebrews 7:26). First, we need to define sin nature. The “nature” of a person or object is commonly thought of as its essential qualities or attributes; that which makes it what it is. Therefore if something has a “sin nature” sin is a defining attribute of that thing.

Hebrews 4:15 tells us Jesus is “without sin.” Since He is without sin, sin cannot be one of His essential qualities or attributes. 

A Simple Sound Check and the Power of Christ

Charles Spurgeon

In We Shall See God, I share a remarkable story that Spurgeon told about an experience early in his ministry:

In 1857, a day or two before preaching at the Crystal Palace, I went to decide where the platform should be fixed; and, in order to test the acoustic properties of the building, cried in a loud voice, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Popularity vs. Pleasing God

Pleasing ChristIn Galatians 1:10 Paul says, “Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Paul makes it clear that God is the One we’re supposed to please.

Humility: Recognizing Who We Really Are

Humility: Recognizing Who We Really Are

Romans 12:3 says, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment.” This is what humility is—it’s recognizing who we really are.
