The Pastor’s Postings (Page 3)

Godly Sorrow Over Sin

Godly sorrow springs from a view of a suffering Savior, and manifests itself by . . . hatred of self, abhorrence of sin, groaning over our backslidings, grief of soul for being so often entangled by our lusts and passions, and is accompanied by . . . softness, meltings of heart, flowings of love to the Redeemer, indignation against ourselves, and earnest…

Safe with Christ, The Faithful Shepherd

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20) When Noah and his family were in that ark during the flood (though probably fearful), not one drop of water fell on them, for CHRIST WAS in THE MIDST OF THEM. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were in that fiery furnace,…

What Matters

“To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you . . .” 1 Peter 1:4 It will matter little when I lie in my coffin!  What does it really matter where we spend the few years of our pilgrimage here below? Life is short, vain, and transitory; and if I live in comfort and wealth, or…

Faith Is Not Our Savior

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  (Ephesians 2:8) We must not make a Saviour out of faith.  Christ is the Saviour.  Faith is not the Saviour.  Faith didn’t die for us, faith doesn’t intercede for us, faith doesn’t pardon us; we’re saved by the grace of God. It is…

Christ’s Sympathy

This is true sympathy, “weeping with those who weep,” making their sorrow our own. How really our Lord does this with His people. So completely is He our Surety—that He takes our sins and infirmities, our trials and sorrows upon Himself as if they were all and entirely His own. Our sins were so completely laid upon Him—that not one remains charged…

Oh, That I Could Honor Christ!

According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:20, 21) Paul desired to exhibit and exalt Christ! If he wrote — he wrote of Christ. If he spoke — he spoke of Christ.…

The True Christian Is God’s Holy Miracle

He can tell you that he was so blind—but now God has given him eyes to see sin to be the greatest evil, and Christ to be the choicest good. He can tell you that once he was so deaf—that though God called very often and very loudly to him—yet he could not hear! But now God has given him a hearing ear so that…

The Church Is Espoused To A Glorious Bridegroom

“I am married unto you.” Jeremiah 3:14 Christ Jesus is joined unto His people in marriage-union. In love He espoused His Church as a chaste virgin, long before she fell under the yoke of sin. Full of burning affection He toiled, like Jacob for Rachel, until the whole of her purchase-money had been paid; and now, having sought her by His Spirit,…

I Am Sure Only Of Two Things

When I was young, I was sure of many things. But now that I am old, there are only two things which I am sure of: One is that I am a miserable sinner! Secondly, that Christ is an all-sufficient Savior! He is well taught who learns these two lessons. “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came…

Necessary Dependence On Daily Grace

“He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6) The Lord works in us unto the very last.  After conversion, he continues his grace to help us do his will.  All we have is by his gracious gift.  What can we be proud of?  All of the excellencies that we might…
