Now meeting at: 8604 Commerce Park Drive, Sellersburg, Indiana, USA — "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord." 2 Corinthians 4:5

Nothing But a Huge Clod Of Dust

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2 Everything upon earth, as viewed by the eyes of the Majesty of heaven—is base and paltry. Earth is after all, nothing but a huge clod of dust, and as such, as insignificant in the eyes of its Maker as the small dust of the balance, or the drop…

Take Me As I Am

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved.” Jeremiah 17:14 Here is this sin! Save me from it!—Here is this snare! Break it to pieces!—Here is this lust! Lord, subdue it!—Here is this temptation! Deliver me out of it!—Here is my proud heart! Lord, humble it!—Here is my unbelieving heart! Take it away, and…

Sanctification

I hear men talk of becoming less and less sinful and progressively holier from day to day.  I hear men talk about their “progressive sanctification” a great deal.  But the more they boast of their progressive holiness, the more harsh, judgmental and mean-spirited they become towards their ‘lesser brethren’.  Their doctrine is this: ‘God’s children,’ they say ‘grow in righteousness and personal…

Of Him Are Ye In Christ Jesus

1 Corinthians 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 considered according to my union with Him. God did not allow me to go too far…

A Mystery To Yourself

“I find then, the law that, to me, while I desire to do good, evil is present.” Romans 7:21 Are you not often a mystery to yourself? Warm one moment— cold the next! Abasing yourself one hour—exalting yourself the following! Loving the world, full of it, steeped up to your head in it today—crying, groaning, and sighing for a sweet manifestation of…

O, What Slow Learners!

“So Jesus said, Do you also still not understand?” Matthew 15:16.  What lessons we need day by day to teach us anything aright, and how it is for the most part, “line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” O, what slow learners!—what dull, forgetful scholars!—what ignoramuses!—what stupid blockheads!—what stubborn pupils! Surely no scholar at a school,…

A Right View of God

God is the highest good of the reasonable creature. The enjoyment of Him is our proper; and is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Better than fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of any, or all earthly…

A Believer’s Desire

Wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Matthew 24:28. My soul! These are the words of Jesus, none of which should be suffered to fall to the ground. No doubt much instruction is contained in this passage. An eagle is a bird of prey: and Job saith, that the eagle hasteneth to the prey as the swift ships.…

The Offence of the Gospel

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ…” Romans 1:16 The Natural man is ashamed of the gospel because the Gospel of Jesus Christ says that all men are sinners and that offends man’s dignity.  The religious person says:  “We be not sinners.”  That’s what they said to Christ; “we be not sinners”. Christ said, “The Son of man is…

Do You Love God’s Salvation?

“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, let God be magnified” (Psalm 70:4). Every believer can truly identify and say with David that we love the salvation that God has abundantly, eternally and sovereignly given to the poor and needy sinner in and through the Lord Jesus Christ.…
