A Promise To Weary Sinners

Oh, that a weary, brokenhearted world would learn these lessons of grace! Oh, that they would taste and see that God is good! Let them but come home to Him. He will not mock them with shadows, nor feed them with husks. He will satisfy their craving souls; He will turn their midnight into noon; He will give them beauty for ashes,…

Do Not Praise The Dead And Shun The Living

If I truly believe the gospel of God’s sovereign grace and glory, I will not hesitate to be fully identified with those who believe and preach that gospel in my day. Paul said to Timothy, “Do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner.” It is cowardice and compromising to brag on dead preachers like Spurgeon,…

Love God And Live As You Please

“Love God And Live As You Please.” This was the response of Augustine when he was asked what is the secret to the Christian life. This was also the response of Martin Luther when he was asked to cite his rule of life. Everyone except those who are physically confined or restrained endeavors to live the rule “Live as you please.” The…

God’s Word Like Heavenly Dew

The dew falls imperceptibly. No man can see it fall. Yet its effects are visible in the morning. So it is with the blessing of God upon His Word. It penetrates the heart without noise; it sinks deep into the consciencewithout anything visible going on. And as the dew opens the pores of the earth and refreshes the ground after the heat of a…

Consider God’s Crooked Work Of Salvation

Consider the work of God: for who can make straight which He hath made crooked? (Ecclesiastes 7:13) Behold how the work of God seems crooked in the eyes of natural human reasoning and wisdom. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Proverbs 14:12). Consider the work of God in salvation. …

What Is Contentment?

Contentment is the being satisfied with the sovereign dispensations of God’s providence. It is the opposite of murmuring, which is the spirit of rebellion — the clay saying to the Potter, “Why have you made me thus?” Instead of complaining at his lot — a contented man is thankful that his condition and circumstances are no worse than they are.  -A W…

What Believers Know About God’s Salvation

If 99% of salvation is by grace, then salvation is 100% by works.  If any aspect of salvation is dependent upon man doing his part in order for God’s part to be fulfilled, then salvation is of man, and not of the Lord. Works and grace cannot be mixed.  They are mutually exclusive.  The belief that God loves all, Christ died for…

Jesus Cares For His Own!

For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred? (Esther 8:6) Of all the sweet reflections which arise out of this chapter, I desire chiefly to have my soul directed to the contemplation of Jesus, in his love to this people which the anxiety…

God Is Ready And Willing To Aid The Sinner!

he knowledge of that gracious character, as interpreted by the cross of Christ, is the true remedy for our disquietness. Insufficient acquaintanceship with God lies at the root of our fears and gloom.  I know that flesh and blood cannot reveal God to you, and that the Holy Spirit alone can enable you to know either the Father or the Son. But…

The Precious, Cleansing Blood Of Christ

Christ’s blood is precious because of its redeeming and atoning efficacy. By it, all the sins of all Christ’s people are atoned for! Christ’s blood is also precious in its cleansing power. “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin!” “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” Through Jesus’ blood, there is not a spot left upon any…
