"We preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord . . .” Meeting at 4702 Greenleaf Road, Sellersburg, IN USA 47172

What Is The Only Necessary Thing?

“Only one thing is needed!” How true that saying! The longer we live in the world, the more true it will appear. The nearer we come to the grave, the more thoroughly we shall assent to it. Health, and money, and lands, and rank, and honors, and prosperity are all well in their way. But they cannot be called needful. Without them, thousands are happy in this world and reach glory in the world to come. The “many things” which men and women are continually struggling for are not really necessities. The grace of God which brings salvation is the one thing needful.
