The Gospel crucible!

The Gospel crucible! (John MacDuff, “Ripples in the Twilight” 1885) “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God!” 1 Corinthians 1:18 It will never cease to be one of the marvels of Christianity, that her antidotes are the same […]

This is the doctrine that we preach! (Charles Spurgeon) This is the doctrine that we preach:If a man is saved—all the honor is to be given to Christ.If a man is lost—all the blame is to be laid upon himself.

THE GOSPEL WE PREACHHenry Mahan The apostles and the early believers were despised by the religious Jews because of the gospel which they preached. It was not because they lived immoral lives, failed to do good works, nor because they were covetous or proud men.

WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS THIS?Henry Mahan “What kind of church is this?” During a recent Bible conference this question was asked by a visitor who had dropped in for the service.

DISCERNMENT“And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all judgment.” – Philippians 1:9The word judgment in this verse is used only here in the New Testament. It means discernment.

Whose heart-the Lord opened

“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, […]

Two Things Always Happen

Two Things Always Happen When the Gospel is preached, there are two things always taking place (even though most are unaware of it); some are being prepared for glory, others are being hardened. Some are being brought to the light; some are left sitting in darkness. Some see Christ and His glory; others see no beauty about Him. Some […]

HOW IS A SINNER SAVED? How is a sinner saved? The apostle Paul very plainly tells us how! In Ephesians 2:8 he said, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” Salvation is a work of God’s grace. It was God’s grace that chose […]

He that knoweth God heareth us Joe Terrell We are of God. He that knoweth God heareth us. (1 John 4:6) John gives us several ways by which we may prove that we are of God: matters of both faith and practice. How can we know if others are of God? The answer is simple: […]
