Faith Reviving

From whence this fear and unbelief?Hast Thou, O Father, put to griefAnd will the righteous Judge of menWhich, Lord, was laid on Thee?If Thou hast my discharge procured,And freely in my place enduredThe whole of wrath Divine;Payment God cannot twice demandFirst at my bleeding Surety’s hand,And then again at mine.Complete atonement Thou hast made,And to the utmost farthing paid,What e’er Thy people…

My Grace Is Sufficient For Thee

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:9). 1.  Oppressed with unbelief and sin, Fightings without, and fears within; While earth and hell, with force combined, Assault and terrify my…

Sovereign Protector

A sov’reign Protector I have,unseen, yet forever at hand,unchangeably faithful to save,almighty to rule and command. He smiles, and my comforts abound;His grace as the dew shall descend;and walls of salvation surroundthe soul He delights to defend. Inspirer and hearer of pray’r,Thou Shepherd and Guardian of Thine,my all to Thy covenant careI sleeping and waking resign. If Thou art my Shield and…

The Will of God

“Having made known unto us the mystery of His will…” Ephesians 1:9a The will of God in times past was hidden in many types and shadows, but now God has declared to us the “mystery of His will.” Let us see what Paul is speaking of by asking a few questions concerning the will of God: 1. What is the object of the will…

The Doctrines of Grace

TOTAL DEPRAVITYWe believe that all men since the fall of Adam are both guilty and helpless as sinners. All men are born with a sinful nature. All men are guilty of sin. All men are spiritually dead in sin. All men are helplessly lost by nature (Romans 3:9-19; 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3). UNCONDITIONAL ELECTIONGod sovereignly chose the people whom He would save before…

The Lord Will Provide

Though troubles assail, And dangers affright,Though friends should all fail, And foes all unite;Yet one thing secures us, Whatever betide,The scripture assures us, The Lord will provide. We may, like the ships, By tempest be tossedOn perilous deeps, But cannot be lost.Though Satan enrages, The wind and the tide,The promise engages, The Lord will provide. His call we obey, Like Abram of…

Trusting The Lord God

Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. (Psalms 62:8) Believer, when are you to trust the Lord? Are we to trust Him only when all is well and doubt Him when all is dark? Are we to trust Him only when we understand what He is doing but when all…

The Free, Sovereign Grace of God!

“Those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified; and those He justified, He also glorified.”    Romans 8:30 The justified sinner stands the closest to God,of any created being in the universe. Nearerto the throne of the Eternal, he cannot stand. What marvelous love! Who will dare assert that salvation is not,from first to last of free, sovereign grace! Let your eye pierce the…

The Basics of Baptism

WHAT IS BAPTISM? It is an ordinance of God (one of only two, the Lord’s supper being the other) given for a confession of faith and a symbol of salvation through the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Mark 16:16; Col. 2:12; Rom. 6:3). WHO IS TO BE BAPTIZED? Not infants and not unbelievers. Believers only should be baptized; all those who…

Out of the Ashes of Sodom

Why was Lot in Sodom in the first place? There were no fellow-believers there with whom to worship. There was no prophet there to preach the word of God. The people of Sodom were a terrible influence on his children, and his own soul was vexed by the wickedness of the place. So why did he live there? I suppose for the…
