The Pastor’s Postings

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…

A Most Amazing Thought!

The Lord taketh pleasure in his people (Psalm 149:4) He who made us his Israel (vs. 2) takes pleasure in us.  He chose us in his Son, loved us with an everlasting love, gave his only begotten Son to accomplish our redemption; He quickened, called and converted us, and will keep us unto the end of our faith, the ultimate salvation of…

Saved By Another

The problem with sinners is not that we are unwilling to do something to save ourselves but that we are unwilling to do nothing that we might be saved by another (John 3:19-20).  Faith takes nothing from you, faith takes nothing done by you, faith demands you add nothing, only believe and continue to believe, not in anything you have done or not…

The Saint’s Assurance is in the Sovereign God

Dear   soul,   think   about   it:   if   there   is   one   germ somewhere out there in the universe that is not under His control, then my health, my life, is just a matter of chance or fortune – good or bad!  If there is one demon spirit out there some place that is not under God’s control, then my hope of salvation would dry…

The Importance of Hearing God’s Word

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 Faith is belief, trust and confidence in God and in His Christ. Faith in God (Christ) gives peace, hope, assurance, rest, joy, strength, courage, patience and many more things to the believer. Faith cometh by hearing. In the wisdom and purpose of God, faith cometh by hearing…

A Word About Witnessing

Return to thine own house, and show how great things God hath done unto thee. Luke 8:39  The Lord had shown great mercy to this poor sinner, setting him free from demons and from sin.  Now He tells him to go home to his family and friends and to be the Lord’s witness.  Do not go home and begin to preach.  Do…

The Judgment of the Self-Righteous

I can imagine the Day of Judgment. All are gathered before the throne of God. Those who are robed in the perfect robe of Christ’s righteousness are gathered to His right hand. The rest wait to hear His voice of condemnation, “Depart from Me!” Does anyone have anything to say? If there be one who has no sin, let him step forth…
