Piety – the Holy Grail For Christians
Posted by Clare

I was meeting with a passionate follower of Jesus recently, who began talking about piety. Piety isn’t a virtue we talk about much anymore. It conjures up images and icons of monks or saints from the middle ages with hallows surrounding their faces. I wasn’t even sure what piety was.

Piety – an affectionate obedience that wants whatever God commands.

Wow! As a follower of Jesus I try daily to be obedient. But to pray that I want whatever God wants, really raises the bar! I’m ashamed at how often I obey God, almost begrudgingly, like a young boy asked by his dad to mow the lawn on a hot summer day. I do it, but I’m not all that happy about it.

Piety sets it’s heart on wanting what God really wants. But how does that work in real life – today?

As we think about year-end giving, I found this blog by a respected friend, David Wills, helpful. (I’ve added a paragraph near the end regarding giving to secular colleges.)

We tend to give in areas of personal passion, or to places we care about. But is it possible we have this a bit backward? Isn’t it important to put God at the center of the equation and see what he thinks?

God cares about each of us. He allows us to steward financial resources for his glory and our good. He knows that as we glorify him out of gratitude for his gifts to us, we experience true life. And he desires that we reflect his generosity through our giving.

If we make obedience to God and reflecting his love to the world our supreme motivation, then giving comes into view as an excellent context to glorify God. So, what are the things we can support from the resources he has entrusted to our care to glorify him?

Can Christians Commit the “Unpardonable Sin?”
Posted by Clare

In last week’s blog, I described the sin Jesus said could not be pardoned or forgiven in this life or the next. The unpardonable sin is attributing to Satan, a work of the Holy Spirit like the miracle Jesus did. But if what it means to be saved is that all past and future sins are forgiven by God, because of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, is it even possible for Christians to commit an unpardonable sin?
