The Pastor’s Postings

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…

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…
