    Justification by Faith (Samuel Blair)

    Justification by Faith (Samuel Blair)

    Samuel Blair was a godly minister and used by the Lord in the Second Great Awakening. He was also a teacher. Blair was much heavier on the doctrine than the application.


    Blair’s sermon is entitled “The Gospel-Method of Salvation” and his text is Romans 10:4: “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”



    The nature of true faith in Christ.





    The necessity of faith in Christ for justification.





    The glory and excellency of God’s method of justification.




    Is faith a work? It’s essential, yes. But it is not meritorious. Our faith does not earn us anything. But faith unites us to a Person, to Christ. Faith is a gift from the Lord, but a gift we must exercise.

    Repentance (Samuel Davies)

    Repentance (Samuel Davies)

    “Repent, you must either in time or eternity, upon earth, or in hell. You cannot possibly avoid it. The question is not, Shall I repent? for that is beyond a doubt. But the question is, “Shall I repent now when it may reform and save me; or shall I put it off to the eternal world, when my repentance will be my punishment, and can answer no end but to torment me?” And is this a hard question? Does not common sense determine it in favour of the present time? Therefore, let the duty be as extensively observed as it is commanded: Let all men everywhere repent.”


    — SAMUEL DAVIES


    This week Chuck and John are back in the studio to discuss the sermon The Nature and Necessity of True Repentance by Samuel Davies, in which we are presented with five realities of repentance.

    Salvation in Full Color (Ep. 1 Rebroadcast)

    Salvation in Full Color (Ep. 1 Rebroadcast)

    John and Chuck are taking a much-needed week off. We thought the time would be best used to reintroduce new listeners to the book we are taking a long soak in on The Whole Counsel, titled Salvation in Full Color.


    In this inaugural episode of The Whole Counsel (previously The Behold Your God Podcast) John introduces several of the changes to the podcast. We are in a new location, we have a new cohost (welcome Chuck Baggett) and we have a new sound.

    Seeking the Lord (Devereux Jarratt)

    Seeking the Lord (Devereux Jarratt)

    John and Chuck have mentioned a few times the importance of the order of the sermons presented in Salvation in Full Color. This week bears the fruit of that importance as it is the first sermon describing the sinner's response to God's rights, our need of regeneration, and the hope of the work of the Spirit.


    In Seeking the Lord, Devereux Jarratt explains that having a right grasp of God's sovereignty and power will lead to a seeking of Him. Beat against the doors of heaven, in faith, until God answers.

    Hymn Stories (Ryan Bush)

    Hymn Stories (Ryan Bush)

    We have mentioned the beauty and importance of hymns before, but in this special episode, John is joined by Ryan Bush, host of the podcast Hymn Stories, a weekly podcast that gives a glimpse into the lives and stories behind our favorite hymns. During their conversation, John and Ryan discuss why they use hymns in their corporate, family, and private worship over praise choruses and other Christian music. They also discuss how to overcome the difficulties of archaic language and unfamiliar melodies.

Best podcast.

This is the best podcast out there. It is always rich in Biblical truth and always exalts the Lord Jesus Christ. Give a listen, you will not be disappointed.

Great resource!

I’ve been very blessed by the podcast content! Thomas Charles has become a new friend to me, through his book Spiritual Counsels. I keep going back to the podcasts on his book, as well as the episodes on Putting On Christ, and William Mason’s book, The One Thing Needful. This little book has been a great help to me and I’ve read it to my family. Finally, the 5 minute podcasts from Jeremy Walker are wonderful and great for sharing with people! Thank you so much!!
