After a few months of quiet on the "Rob Rufus - Grace and Glory Blog" - it's back to more and more glorious business as usual! I've just finished transcribing Rob's five part series on "Established in the Gift of Righteousness" that he begun in January 2009 and I cannot recommend it enough. It certainly has finally made me "see the light" personally into the glories of the promises of the Word of God and is reaping fruit in my life that I couldn't have dreamed of. For a year that started off so badly with work and everything, I am amazed at how quickly God can turn a situation around!
Here they are;
Established in the Gift of Righteousness - Part 1
Established in the Gift of Righteousness - Part 2 - ("How to Increase in the Blessing")
Established in the Gift of Righteousness - Part 3 - ("The Law is Not Based on Faith")
Established in the Gift of Righteousness - Part 4 - ("How to Fly Your Life by the Instruments of Grace")
Established in the Gift of Righteousness - Part 5 - ("Living Free from Fear of Judgement")
I also wrote out the transcript of a glorious sermon last year while I was on holiday in Lanzarote that I was struggling to get typed out. Last night I finished it as well and it complements this teaching so well.
Here it is;
"Sonship vs Christianity".
I am running out of adjectives to describe the preaching that is coming out from City Church International in Hong Kong! But surely the proof of good preaching is in the fruit it bears. Intellectual, academic preaching is all well and good - but I sat under it for the last 30 years of my life and found myself helplessly struggling with issues. I stand as a personal testimony that far from this preaching encouraging antinominanism - this preaching on the gift of righteousness is actually increasing love and affection for the Lord as well as opening my eyes to see the utter inadequacy of law to accomplish any holiness in life.
