THE NEW BIRTH There are many old houses in our little town. At one time it became very popular for people to buy those old houses and restore them. Often people would remove walls to make bigger, nicer rooms. They would replace all of the windows and doors. They would put a fresh coat of [...]

Altogether Vanity

Altogether Vanity Psalm 39: 5 It is the assumption of most that sin is something that comes into their lives at moments of weakness. Anger, jealousy, and pride, finding an occasion, cause their feet to slip and sin enter the door. If they could somehow get rid of these things that have ruined their reputations, [...]

The True Believer

The True Believer The true believer does not love sin, he loves Christ and holiness. He would like to be perfect and without even the thought of sin, and he longs for the day when this promise in Christ will be a reality. He grieves over his sins, mourns over his infirmities, and feels that [...]

A mystery to yourself

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!

THE TRUE CHARACTER OF UNBELIEF In all unbelief there are two things — a good opinion of one’s self and a bad opinion of God. Man’s good opinion of himself makes him think it quite possible to win God’s favor by his own religious performances; and his bad opinion of God makes him unwilling and [...]

Two natures in one person.

Two natures in one person. The eternally begotten Son of God necessarily from eternity possesses the divine nature – that of His Father. When the Son of God in His incarnation became Son of Man, He received the human nature (but not its imputed sin). He did not cease to be the Son of God. [...]

A GOOD HOPE

A GOOD HOPE It is only when our Lord in grace and mercy takes away our imaginary strength that we truly look to Him and trust Him. This we do not learn in creeds and confessions of faith. This we are taught by Him in personal relationship in the experience of grace. I only find [...]

The first birth introduces us into the natural world; the second introduces us into a spiritual world. The first birth ushers us into a world of sin, and woe, and death; the second birth, into a world [...]

“You must be born again.” — John 3:7 Regeneration is a subject which lies at the very basis of salvation, and we should be very diligent to take heed that we really are “born again,” for there are many who imagine they are, who are not. Be assured that the name of a Christian—is not [...]
