Written on our Hearts

The 3 uses of God's law in the life of the believer.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Watch as Ray David unpacks Romans 3:1-20 and shows us the abounding grace of the Gospel.

Bad News and Good News

The good news of the Gospel is only as good as the bad news was bad. The Gospel is good because of what it rescues us from. 

It is possible to be given the law, the oracles, and the promises of God and yet have an open grave for a throat and feet swift to shed blood. It is possible to be a religious person with God’s revelation neatly bound in a leather book, and still not get the ... more

Deserving Death

Jesus died the death that was yours.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Watch as Ray David unpacks Romans 1:18-32 and points us to the abounding grace of the Gospel.

The Only Way

Romans 1:18-32 is perhaps one of the most damning, difficult pieces of scripture, because it forces us to come to terms with the fact that there is such a thing as the wrath of God. 

In this passage, Paul is addressing the question of – why is a righteousness that is revealed by faith for faith the only way for humanity to be saved? Why is God, through the Gospel, the only one able to save you from God? Why ... more

My Friend, David Mainse

Ray David's reflections on his friendship with David Mainse.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Canadian Evangelical Christians have had their social media newsfeed flooded with the news of David Mainse’s passing.  Eulogies and tributes have honoured him as Canada’s Pastor and Evangelist.  History will remember him as the founder of North America’s longest running live, daily television program.  His life and ministry extended far beyond Canadian borders bringing millions of dollars in missions and relief around the globe.  He met with Prime Ministers, Presidents, Royalty and dignitaries beyond number.  Heaven only knows the sum of his influence for the gospel. His life was a rare gift from God to an entire generation.

Yet, for ... more

No More Shame

Because of Christ, your greatest shame has become untrue.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Watch as Ray David unpacks Romans 1:8-15 and points us to the abounding grace of the Gospel.

A Powerful Unspoken Force

Think about the role shame plays in our lives. Every day we put on clothes, shower, shave, put on makeup and fancy clothes so that we can be with others and hide our shame. We all have things in our life that we have done, or things that have been done to us, that we are ashamed of. For some of us it is something more insidious like our family of origin, but we all have this latent sense ... more

New Beginnings

When your plans fail, remember God has a bigger plan in mind.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Watch as Ray David unpacks Romans 1:1-7 and points us to the abounding grace of the Gospel.

New Beginnings

New beginnings can be really exciting. They hold all kinds of potential and promise, because you don’t know what’s in store. New beginnings can also be troubling because the outcome is uncertain. You don’t know what the future holds. 

In some ways of the context of Romans is all about new beginnings. The Apostle Paul had a very clear, distinct moment of new beginning. One day the risen Christ appeared to him face to face and Paul was given a new ... more

Sons of God

Christian men and women, you are firstborn-heir sons of God.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Watch as Ray David unpacks Galatians 3:22-4:7 and shows us how the Gospel + Nothing = Freedom in Christ.


The very thing that makes the church in Galatia foolish is the same thing that makes us foolish – we are quick to forget the Gospel. We all too often drift from the Gospel, and begin to think that it is all about our works. We begin to try to earn God’s favor by working to be ‘good enough’. 

Christian Growth

One of our fundamental problems is that we passively view the Gospel as though it is just the beginning ... more

A Complete Gospel

The Gospel is personal, complete, and brings deep unity.
by Ray David Glenn Discuss

Watch as Ray David unpacks Galatians 2:1-10 and shows us how the Gospel + Nothing = Freedom in Christ.

The Stakes

As Paul describes going back to Jerusalem in Galatians 2, nothing less than Christian freedom and liberty is at stake. And in each of our lives, moment by moment, the Gospel itself is at stake, because we all have a tendency of wanting to add to the Gospel. 

But ultimately, the Gospel is never truly at stake, because it is under the sovereign care of God; the good news of Jesus Christ will continue on whether we believe it ... more

The Joy of the Gospel

Returning to the joy of our salvation.
by Ray David Glenn

Over a decade ago I was walking with Paul Barnett, the retired bishop of Sydney, Australia.  We were about to part ways, I to the subway and he to his hotel, when he paused and out of nowhere said to me, “Always remember this.  Apart from the gospel you are an under qualified social worker.” It was one of those moments that sticks with me to this day. 

The gospel is all we have. It is all we need.

What is the Gospel?

What is the gospel? While the gospel is a multi-faceted truth that can be seen from different ... more

There Is Only One King

What should our response be to the American election?
by Ray David Glenn

My Facebook feed is inundated with reactions to last night’s election results in the United States.  The reactions loosely fall into three categories; happy, angry, fearful.  What should be our response as Canadian Christian observers? The good news of Jesus invites us to look more closely at what we think about God, ourselves and this world.  How we respond to election results is shaped by who Jesus is and how He is at work in this world He loves. Christians can resolve to honour, pray and be content.


Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether

Screwtape’s Safest Road to Hell

Are you spiralling gently toward the Lord, or are you on the safest road to hell?
by Ray David Glenn

We have reached a turning point in our sermon series through the Old Testament book of the Judges. It is a moment worth pausing to reflect.

There has been what seems like a pattern.  Israel forgets the Lord their God, serves the gods of their surrounding culture, God mercifully puts them under oppressive rule and servitude (loving them too much to leave them comfortable in idolatry), Israel cries out to the Lord, He sends a judge to deliver them and there is ‘rest in the land’ for as long as the judge lives.  The judge dies and the cycle starts ... more
