  • God: Just and Justifier August 21, 2019
    In this brief clip from his teaching series Justification By Faith Alone, R.C. Sproul explains why God doesn't unilaterally forgive everyone. Transcript The biggest problem that the human race has is this: God is holy, He's righteous, He's just, and we're not. And so the question of justification boils down to this: How can I as an unjust […]
  • Why Did Jesus Institute the Lord’s Supper on the Passover? August 21, 2019
    As the book of Exodus begins, Israel has been in Egypt for more than four hundred years (cf. Ex. 12:40). They are now in bondage under an oppressive Pharaoh. The early chapters of Exodus describe the calling of Moses to be the one who will lead God’s people out of slavery in Egypt. He comes before Pharaoh demanding that Israel be allowed to go and worship th […]

  • More Than Hacks August 22, 2019
    I recently found a “hack” (a clever solution to a tricky problem) when one of my grandchildren warmed her stuffed rabbit on our fireplace glass. The resulting globs of bunny fur weren’t pretty, but a fireplace expert provided a great hack—a tip for how to make the glass look like new. It worked, and now we no longer allow stuffed animals near the fireplace! […]

C2TV ministry is designed to strengthen your spiritual walk. This ministry newsletter began in 1999, first known as the Family Tree Ministry. The goal is to be a connection builder, serving as a spiritual connection between people and matters of faith. Our mission is simple: Connecting men and women to life-changing faith in Jesus – encouraging them to impact their community with His values, ethics and love. In the age of technology the newsletter has transformed into a blog with many more features that the old paper format couldn't provide. In November 2012, The Family Tree Ministry was renamed to "Connect to the Vine - (C2TV)" based on the Book of John, Chapter 15, where we are told to remain connected to Christ. In October 2016, this blog was renamed to "Connecting Champions to the Vine - C2TV." This change came about with the adding of the ADVOCARE bar at the top of the blog site. Originally focused on a ministry outreach to family members, C2TV has expanded to reach all those whom we come into contact with. Our prayer is that this blog becomes a means of illuminating God's work in our culture and encouraging one another to stand firm in Him! At the heart of the spiritual journey is the understanding that it is a journey. None of us are perfect. Once we become believers, we are not expected to achieve instant spiritual maturity. Rather, the Christian life is a process involving both our attention (2 Corinthians 7:1) and God’s work in us (Philippians 1:6). And it has more to do with opportunity and intentionality than with age (1 Timothy 4:12).

Jesus_Paid_It_AllIn the day of adversity, consider!” Ecclesiastes 7:14

In your adversity, consider:
That you deserve it all!
That, had you nothing but adversity, it only were your due!
That every moment free from trouble, is a mercy!
That had the full curse been poured on you–your life would be nothing but sorrow and vexation!

Consider that God afflicts you for your profit–to bring your sins to mind, and lead you to the Cross. Believer, God chastens you in love, to make you a partaker of His holiness. (Hebrews 12:10.) How often have you forgotten Him! But He never forgets you–and thus He chastens you.

Consider, how much you live for the world–how little you live for the Lord!
Consider how earthly, sensual, and devilish is your nature!
Consider your thoughts–how vain!
Consider your service–how unprofitable!
Consider, then, God’s love in chastening you.

Are you in sickness–then consider your many days of former health–all undeserved by you! Consider your many helps in trouble, God’s presence, and His grace–all undeserved by you!

In sleepless nights, consider how many nights you have slept soundly and sweetly–all undeserved by you! Consider Him, who gives you songs in the night–all undeserved by you!

In poverty, consider how all your former needs have been supplied–food, clothing, lodging, and so many comforts–all undeserved by you!

Have you incurred the loss of sight or hearing; loss of limbs, or power of using them? Consider, then, your former powers; how much enjoyment you have had in seeing, hearing, moving, handling–all undeserved by you!

O tried believer, consider, then, that your afflictions are light–and they are but for a moment. They are all ordered in divine wisdom, tenderness, and love! Consider Jesus! what sufferings He endured–all for unworthy you! Then faint not, nor be weary, but consider your “eternal weight of glory”–glory “that far outweighs” all your woes–glory, all undeserved by you!

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all! So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal!” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
