Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

Those who believe the doctrines of sovereign grace often act inconsistently with their own principles--when they are angry at the defects of others.

A company of travelers fall into a pit; one of them gets a passerby to draw him out. Now he should not be angry with the rest for falling in; nor because they are not yet out, as he is. He did not pull himself out. Instead, therefore, of reproaching them--he should show them pity.

In the same way, a truly saved man will no more despise others--than blind Bartimaeus, after his own eyes were opened, would take a stick and beat every blind man he met! "For who maketh thee to differ from another? And what hast thou that thou didst not receive now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as...

The Lord Jesus Christ, because of His Godhead, has always had rule over the universe.  Yet in His incarnation, God the Father bestowed, or conferred on Him, His Son, the office of King (Luke 1:32; Psalm 2:6).  His office as King, or His Lordship, is what every believer bows to first, His right to rule over them.  So His kingship commences in the hearts and lives of those who truly bow to and come by faith to the Lord Jesus Christ.  After His resurrection, the Father turned over the reigns of this universe and all that is in it, to His Son, to dispose of, to govern, to reign over till all His enemies are made His footstool and the last enemy is destroyed (I Corinthians 15:25 - 27; Matthew 28:18).

Christ ascended and we will ascend. Christ is first loved; we are loved in the Beloved. Christ is first blessed and we have all spiritual blessings in Him. He is the first and ...

I can still recall the first night Lynn and I slept in our first house. We did not realize we were so close to a railroad track. I can still remember how loud that train sounded! But within a few months, it got to where I didn’t even notice it. Could that be the way some of us are toward hearing the Gospel? There is not a more dreadful state than being “Gospel hardened.”

One generation knows the Christ, the next knows the creed.

One generation knows the Saviour, the next knows the ceremony.

One generation walks with the Lord, the next keeps the building.
