The Whole Story

  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.  That according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. I Corinthians 1: 30-31      This is the whole story of salvation in these two verses.  This first, “But of Him” – He is…

What Is The Offense of the Cross of Christ?

“And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution?  Then is the offence of the cross ceased.” Galatians 5:11 The preaching of the cross of Jesus Christ is offensive to the natural man. We that believe look at the cross and we see grace, mercy, love, forgiveness, and hope; but this world sees a “stumbling stone and a rock of…

True Faith

True faith is in a Person. “Abraham believed God. ” Paul said, “I know Whom I have believed. ” I do not trust the finished work of Christ. I trust Him who finished the work. Faith is not believing that Christ died for me. I may believe that He died for me when it may be that He did not. Faith is…

Our God Is A Very Present Help

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1). A help that is not present when we need it is of small value. The anchor which is left at home is of no use to the seaman in the hour of storm; the money which he used to have is of no worth to the debtor when a…

Only One God

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure. (Isaiah 46:9-10) Friends, there is only one God.  Though…

God’s Saints

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Matthew 7:16)  A fig tree does not produce figs so that it may become a fig tree.  It produces figs because it is a fig tree.  Even so does a believer in Christ produce good works; not to become a saint, but because Christ has…

Being In Christ Jesus

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.  (1Corinthians 1:30)  This declaration gives me four glorious things to contemplate. First:  If it is of the eternal God that I am in Christ Jesus; then there was never a time when I was not in Him.  My birth, life and preservation were all…

“Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.” Psalm 66:16 No one word can fully express all that God has done for my soul, though in general it may be described as saved. Saved! Ah, that is a grand word worthy of being written in letters of gold! A saved soul includes many things—I can only mention…

What Is A Church?

A gospel church is much more than a congregation of people assembled together for the purpose of promoting a creed and continuing the ordinances of divine worship. If we are a true Church of Christ, we have much stronger ties than the waters of baptism produce. Every true local assembly is a miniature of the church universal, as described by the apostle…

Salvation in Christ is Sure and Certain

How long a beggar will wait, and how eagerly he will plead, although he has no promise of alms, but only the bare chance of winning a penny from a passer-by!  How laboriously will fishers cast their nets again and again, though nothing has been taken as yet, and their only encouragement is the possibility that fish may come that way!  How…
