In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we review Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cure by Martyn Lloyd-Jones and published by William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.

Jesus said “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (Jn. 10:10 KJV) Yet many Christians do not enjoy the abundant life that Jesus promised. Rather, many struggle with spiritual depression.

In this classic work Marty...

As we continue our podcast series Going through Galatians we look at how Paul speaks to his testimony as a defense for his faith and authority. Paul shows that God authors our testimonies.

God’s authorship of our salvation is the reason for our sanctification and an explanation for our zeal.

Testimonies create captive audiences and they raise questions. Therefore, we must present our testimony to others as something that only God cou...

This episode continues our series entitled Going through Galatians. The series studies Paul’s monumental defense of the faith in the wake of those who were trying to distort the gospel.

In today’s lesson Paul once more validates his authority. He teaches that he was not taught the gospel by man, but through revelation by God.

Salvation is the greatest teacher. The supernatural revelation of the Holy Spirit in people’s lives is the on...

In this episode of our series Going through Galatians Paul continues to set the stage for his great defense of the faith against those who have added works to the doctrine of salvation.

Paul “marveled” at the Galatian congregations' quick departure from the truth of the gospel.

It is a seriously grave matter to leave the gospel. Christians must respond to those who depart from Jesus and the faith in a manner similar to Paul.

The c...

As we continue our series Going through Galatians, we turn our attention to the second part of Paul's introductory remarks.

God’s salvation delivers us from an evil world. Specifically, deliverance means being “rescued” from sin. That is, the sin of others and ultimately from ourselves and our own evil tendencies.

Jesus also delivers us from eternal separation from God and into His love forevermore through His death on the cross.

Psalm 117:1-2 (KJV)

1) O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

2) For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.

In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we learn that God's truths not only last, they endure.

Picking out individual words in Bible verses and meditating on them is a fruitful practice. It helps let God’s word open up to us and...

In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we review Christianity and Liberalism: New Edition by J. Gresham Machen (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.)

J. Gresham Machen (founder of Westminster Theological Seminary) wrote this classic work of apologetics nearly 100 years ago.

Despite being a century old, its reasoning is as relevant today (if not more so) as it was back then. At the time of its publication the traditional church was...

In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we review Devoted to God: Blueprints for Sanctification by Sinclair B. Ferguson published by Banner of Truth.

Life comes at us fast. We are busier than ever. Yet God never works slower or faster than He has to. In fact the Holy Spirit often works slowly and gradually in our lives.

We need to slow down and listen to God’s still small voice and let Him work in us through the Holy Spirit. ...
