Faith is not what some people think it is. Their human dream is a delusion. Because they observe that faith is not followed by good works or a better life, they fall into error, even though they speak and hear much about faith. “Faith is not enough,” they say, “You must do good works, you must be pious to be saved.” They think that, when you hear the gospel, you start working, creating by your own strength a thankful heart which says, “I believe.” That is what they think true faith is. But, because this is a human idea, a dream, the heart never learns anything from it, so it does nothing and reform doesn’t come from this ‘faith,’ either. Continue reading

He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

“In all companies, on other days, on whatever occasions persons met together, Christ was to be heard of, and seen in the midst of them. Our young people, when they met, were wont to spend the time in talking of the excellency and dying love of JESUS CHRIST, the glory of the way of salvation, the wonderful, free, and sovereign grace of God, his glorious work in the conversion of a soul, the truth and certainty of the great things of God’s word, the sweetness of the views of his perfections, &c.”— Jonathan Edwards, A Narrative of Surprising Conversions

And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
— Mark 2:4-5
What great friends this helpless man had to have gone to such great lengths to get him before Jesus! Ostensibly, they seek his physical healing. And Jesus delivers that, but not at first. Jesus says to the man first, “Your sins are forgiven.”
Why? Is it because the man’s sin was the cause of his paralysis? I don’t think so. Jesus himself speaks against such notions elsewhere (John 9:1-3; Luke 13:4).

Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Its Cure by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones is a collection of 21 sermons that address the lack of joy in the life of a Christian. One sermon considers the parable “Laborers in the Vineyard” (Matt. 20:1-16), in which all workers are paid the same compensation despite working different amounts of time. In this excerpt, Lloyd-Jones addresses a common problem for many of us at work—the desire to track our success. He even confesses personal struggle in his work.

Do not keep a record or an account of your work. Give up being bookkeepers. In the Christian life, we must desire nothing but his glory, nothing but to please him. So do not keep your eye on the clock, but keep it on him and his work. Do not keep on recording your work and labor and the extension of his kingdom. Keep your attention on that and on nothing else.
