“Whose heart-the Lord opened.”—Acts xvi. 14.It is always blessed to trace mercies to their source! And blessed when, through grace, we are enabled to give God his glory, and not put down to man’s merit what wholly originates in God’s grace. The opening of the heart can only be the province of Him that made it. Renewing work, […]

What we need

Posted by on June 9, 2019 at 10:28 am

What we need in this thing of salvation is not merely to be acquainted with Christ but to have His righteousness!

Here we stand

True or False Professor? There is a distinguishing difference between a true child of God and a false professor.

Kept From the Evil Acts 14: 3, 4 Not only does the Lord Jesus Christ sanctify us by giving us the word of life in our hearts at conversion, but once the Lord Jesus creates this division between the believer and the unbeliever, between our old man and the new, between the spirit and the […]

A Matter Of Revelation Todd Nibert No matter how simply and clearly the gospel of Christ is presented, no matter how intelligent the person is that is listening, the gospel cannot be understood or received apart from a revelation from God Almighty to the sinner’s heart ( Matt. 16:17). This is a humbling truth. No amount […]

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, […]
