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

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…

Happiness from Obedience

“I want to be happy.”  Who has not desired this phantom?  But we must understand that the quickest route to unhappiness is to make happiness that which we seek.  What we are to seek is obedience to Christ.  We will find happiness and contentment in doing what we are commanded to do. When we obey the command of the Gospel, “Believe on…

Saved First, Then Called

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.” (2 Timothy 1:9) Notice the divine order given here by the Holy Spirit of God. See that God first saved us then he called us. Salvation comes…

That Unclean Donkey Is Yourself

“But the firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb. And if you do not redeem it, then you shall break its neck.” Exodus 34:20 Every firstborn creature must be the Lord’s, but since the donkey was unclean, it could not be presented in sacrifice to Him. What then? Should it be allowed to go free from the universal law?…

His Ways Are Right. We Should Trust In Him

“You do not realize now what I am doing—but later you will understand.” John 13:7 Peter could not apprehend the design of our Lord in washing the disciples’ feet, and impatiently expressed his surprise, “You shall never wash my feet!” Our gracious Savior in effect replied, “Wait a little, Peter—and you will see the reason for My doing so. You do not…

Coming To God Only By Christ

Every man by nature is attempting to climb up to heaven on the broken ladder of works or trying to cross over the flood of God’s wrath on the fallen bridge of the law. But as sure as God is holy, all these attempts will fail; for “by the works of the law, no flesh shall be justified in his sight.” God has…

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…
