Now meeting at: 8604 Commerce Park Drive, Sellersburg, Indiana, USA — "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord." 2 Corinthians 4:5

Self And Pride

Have you ever seen a generation so full of itself? Seemingly every thought is about self. It’s not about knowing self, but about serving self. If this generation was occupied with truly knowing itself, it would be ashamed of itself. Some of the smartest people that have ever lived in this world are living today — just ask them, just listen to…

Do You Well To Be Angry, Saved Soul?

Lord what is man? And what is a human heart – the heart even of thy saints – when proved and held up to view?  “O heart,  heart,” said John Berridge of himself, “what are thou?  A mass of fooleries and absurdities, the vainest, craftiest, wickedest, most foolish thing in nature.” What deep-hidden evil, what selfishness, what pride, what harsh tempers and…

Christ Is The Best Resting Place

This one true goal or resting-place where doubt and weariness, the stings of a pricking conscience, and the longings of an unsatisfied soul would all be quieted, is Christ Himself. Not the church, but Christ. Not doctrine, but Christ. Not forms, but Christ. Not ceremonies, but Christ. Christ the God-man, giving his life for ours; sealing the everlasting covenant, and making peace…

God’s Sovereign Election To Grace

The Bible reveals God to be sovereign in creation, providence, and salvation. When men object to God’s sovereignty exercised in election, we do well to point them to the apostle’s words in Romans 9:20-21, “Nay, but, O man, who are you to reply against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath…

The Perfect Leading And Care Of Our Great Shepherd

“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads  me beside the still waters.” Psalm 23:1-2 He leads me. I certainly need someone to lead me. I am so poor, so blind, so weak, so foolish that, if left to myself, I would fatally err. Lord, never leave me nor forsake me, lest I be undone. …

The Marks Of The Few True Heaven-bound Pilgrims

Fellow pilgrims, the heavenly way we travel is more or less a lonely way. We have, at most, but few companions. It is a “little flock,” and only here and there we meet a traveler, who, like ourselves, is journeying towards heaven. Because the way is narrow, difficult, and humiliating to the flesh, there are only a few, under the drawings of…

The Invaluable Treasure Of God-given Faith

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:  1 Peter 1:7 True faith is, in every case, the operation of the Spirit of God. Its nature is purifying, elevating, heavenly. Wherever true faith is found,…

Saved To The End By Jesus

Jesus, to whom I have been led to commit myself, has engaged to save me, absolutely, and from first to last. He has promised not only that He will not depart from me — never finally depart from Him! And if He does not do this for me — I have no security against my turning apostate! For I am so weak, inconsistent, and…

Kept To The Finish By God Alone!

The doctrine of the perseverance of the saints has a voice to the unconverted. I know it had to me. I had seen companions of my boyhood, somewhat more advanced than myself…soon their moral excellences were swept away. And I found that if I put my trust in Christ, I had the promise that I should hold on my way, and though I…
