Ships going to and fro between graceless nowheres

Every day there is convincing evidence that the faith of Christ has been shaped to imitate the Israelite experience.

The essential grace ID card

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

John 1:17

It is true that God’s people have similar experiences to the Exodus, the encampment at Sinai, and the entry into Canaan, but there is neither wilderness wandering, death in the desert, nor wholesale desertion of the covenant in the experience of the great salvation. The saints are on high with Christ.

Seedsowing realities

And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.”

Matthew 13:23
