3.2 For not all have faith. But without faith it is impossible to please God. This could be a good point to make against the error known as universalism.
3.10 not willing... I smile as I wonder how many profess willingness while feinting inability.
1.6 heard and knew... This reminds us of the difference between "head knowledge" or just hearing something said and taking it to heart in a experiential way.
1.16 I wonder why all the heaven, earth, visible, invisible, thrones, etc. instead of just "created everything."
1.22 in the body of His flesh... The time and space part of our redemption was important.
