The Pastor’s Postings (Page 2)

The Life of Faith

True faith is built upon the strongest evidence possible–the Word of God! True faith is a total dependence upon the Lord Jesus Christ for all our needs; such as forgiveness, sanctification, peace, and eternal life. The true believer renounces all confidence in his flesh, rejoices only in Christ Jesus, and worships God in Spirit. He feeds upon Christ as the bread of…

Salvation Is Of The Lord!

“Salvation is of the LORD” Jonah 2:9 We who are saved know that our salvation is not of ourselves but is completely the work of God alone (Titus 3:5). We recognize that we were once by nature dead and ruined by the fall (Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:1). We were blind and could not see our need of salvation. We were lame on…

Please Grant Me A Thankful Heart!

The language of Psalm 40:5 suits my soul well, “Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders You have done. The things You planned for us no one can recount to You! Were I to speak and tell of them—they would be too many to declare!” There is no end to the inventory of my mercies! May He who has given so much to me, and done so…

Unless The Lord Open Our Eyes . . .

“the eyes of your understanding being enlightened.” Ephesians 1:18 Everything depends upon the opened eye: the scene may be fair, and the light may be bright, but if the sight be gone all is in vain. Zedekiah had his eyes put out by the king of Babylon, and then he was taken down to the imperial city, but for aught he could…

The Sovereignty Of 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) There is no attribute more comforting to…

When The Gospel Is Preached

When the Gospel is preached, there are two things always taking place (even though most are unaware of it); some are being prepared for glory, others are being hardened. Some are being brought to the light; some are left sitting in darkness. Some see Christ and His glory; others see no beauty about Him. Some who hear the Gospel have their hearts…

Saved! Glory To God Alone!

I cannot see how true humbleness of mind can be attained without a knowledge of election . . . for if we deny election, we must, partly at least, glory in ourselves; but our redemption is so ordered, that no flesh should glory in the Divine presence; and hence it is, that the pride of man opposes this doctrine, because, according to…

We Prevail Over Sin In Christ!

The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked, destitute of good, and prone to evil. This is the character of mankind universally, and those who are made partakers of grace are renewed but in part; the evil nature still cleaves to them, and the root of sin, though mortified, is far from being dead. While the cause remains, it will have effects; and while we are burdened with the…

Holy Confidence

Spurgeon rightly said that Psalm 46 has for its subject the “holy confidence” of God’s saints. He here names three things in which every believer in Jesus Christ should find confidence concerning our safety and security. God is our refuge. All who were chosen by the Father in Sovereign election were put in Christ (Ephesians 1:3-4). We were represented by Jesus Christ…

But Who Is Our Greatest Enemy?

He who you carry in your own bosom—your daily, hourly, and ever-present companion, that entwines himself in nearly every thought of your heart—that . . .  sometimes puffs up with pride, sometimes inflames with lust, sometimes inflates with presumption, and sometimes works under feigned humility and fleshly holiness. God is determined to stain the pride of human glory. He will never let…
