Faith Is Not Our Savior

Faith is not our Savior. It was not faith that was born at Bethlehem and died on Golgotha for us. It was not faith that loved us, and gave itself for us; that bore our sins in its own body on the tree; that died and rose again for our sins. Faith is one thing — the Savior is another. Faith is…

Can Christ Love One Like Me?

“That you. . . . may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which surpasses knowledge.” Ephesians 3:17-19 You may wonder sometimes—and it is a wonder that will fill heaven itself with anthems of eternal praise—how such a glorious Jesus can ever look down from…

The Author and Finisher of Faith

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God”  (Hebrews 12:2). The Lord Jesus Christ is “the author and finisher of our faith.” The faith of God’s elect begins with Christ giving us faith…

Believer, What Troubles You?

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am,…

The Honor of the Father and the Son

“That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”  John 5:23-24…

Redeeming the Time — A New Year Resolution

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (Ephesians 5:16) “Redeeming the time,” could rightly be interpreted, “Buying the opportunity.” This is a metaphor that merchants and traders often use to strive to improve the way they do business. As believers, we would be wise to redeem the time that God has given us. As we enter into a new year together, may…

Why Did Jesus Come to the World?

Many are confused as to the reason for Christ’s coming into this world. False religion supposes that Christ came to die for men so that they may have a profitable and happy life in this world. That Jesus wants men to be healthy happy and successful in the things of this world. But the word of God is plain and cannot be…

What Is The Only Necessary Thing?

“Only one thing is needed!” How true that saying! The longer we live in the world, the more true it will appear. The nearer we come to the grave, the more thoroughly we shall assent to it. Health, and money, and lands, and rank, and honors, and prosperity are all well in their way. But they cannot be called needful. Without them, thousands…

The Newness of the Old Gospel

“To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe”  (Philippians 3:1). We have gathered together to hear the same things. Nothing new or novel is needed. A part of the greatness of the Gospel is that the old, old, story is always new and fresh. There is nothing like that in this world. Everything in…
