The Gospel & Reconciliation

We continue in our Gospel Foundations series on the For The King podcast with this short episode on reconciliation. This concept is crucial when trying to understand the good news of Jesus Christ. We were once alienated from God because of our sin, but now, through Christ, we are reconciled back to God as Adam and Eve once were in the garden. Thanks for listening!

Adoption as Sons

Continuing on our Gospel Foundations series Bryce and I delve into the idea of God adopting us as his sons. The sons receive the inheritance and if we want to inherit God’s blessings then we ought to hope that he would choose us and adopt us as his sons. What a wonderful foundational gospel truth we can always remember when alone, without family, and in despair. We have a father that loves us if you are in Christ. If not, his patience will not last forever. Thanks for tuning in and listening!

Faith & Repentance

Merry Christmas! Bryce and I continue in our series on Gospel foundations. This week the foundational principle to the gospel is faith coupled with repentance. Last Sunday we talked about faith being the conduit by which we enter into Christ’s righteousness. This can be thought of as mere faith, however, this week we want to walk more fully through the nature of faith and how repentance plays an intimate role in every act of faith. Thanks for listening!

The Gospel & Faith-Based Righteousness

The prior week to this episode we walked through the great transaction known as double imputation. One may ask after hearing that Jesus has fulfilled the law and that we can receive that righteousness that comes through fulfilling that law through double imputation, how can I enter into that great transaction? The answer is through faith but as with any theological truth, we could always go deeper than the mere answer. Tune in and listen to Bryce and I flesh out yet another foundation of the gospel that we so cherish.

Law & Gospel

Many think that we are now no longer “under the law” but under Christ in the gospel. While this is partly true it reeks of antinomianism. Lets not fall into this trap of thinking that just because we are in Christ that we no longer need God’s law or want God’s law. God’s law is refreshing reviving the soul. It is to be delighted in because it is good and shows us the very nature of God himself. While it no longer condemns us in Christ it is our standard of holiness to walk in through the spirit. The law & the Gospel are intimately connected, let us not forget this!


Psalm 1: “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in he way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

Our Fall and the Gospel

The fall of mankind is the great fault in this broken world. It is a schism that runs straight through every person, family, and society on the face of this planet. We must come to grips with this terrible news before the gospel of Jesus Christ will become sweeter than honey to our lips.


1 Corinthians 15:22 : For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.


“I do think that the best preaching of the gospel is when the preacher himself enjoys it, when he himself is heartily in love with it; that is a part of the unction that God gives to go with it. When a cook is preparing a dainty dish, methinks he smiles as he sends it up to his lord’s table, and he has some enjoyment of it himself. I love to preach a gospel of which I feel the sweetness in my own soul. So, dear hearer, if you begin to feel the sweetness of hearing the gospel, you shall feel more of it. Those who are tired of preaching are those who do not often hear it. If it is the gospel of Jesus Christ, and you have often heard it, you want to hear it again.” – Charles Spurgeon

Redeemed by Christ

Jesus has has done so many things by spilling his blood for us on the cross. Among those is that of redemption. Redeeming something entails paying a ransom to restore something to yourself but also at a cost to yourself, not because the thing is inherently worth it. There is an element of worth in the transaction but to God we are by no means worthy of the death of his son. It ought to humble ourselves into subjection to him.

The Centrality of the Gospel

This Sunday Bryce and I walk through the Gospel, the doctrine of first importance to the Christian. We must get the Gospel and we must believe in that correct Gospel to be saved, for no other gospel has the power to save! Thanks for listening and tuning in to the For The King podcast!


“This is why Paul upholds the teaching of the gospel in such a forceful way … Seeing such an example and such a picture of man’s great weakness and fickleness, Paul states that the truth of the gospel must supersede anything that we may devise … he is showing us that we ought to know the substance of the doctrine which is brought to us in the name of God, so that our faith can be fully grounded upon it. Then we will not be tossed about with every wind, nor will we wander about aimlessly, changing our opinions a hundred times a day; we will persist in this doctrine until the end. This, in brief, is what we must remember.”
― John Calvin, Sermons on Galatians
