Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

By: Lantana Grace Church | October 30, 2015

The true measure of whether a person really believes the gospel of God’s sovereign, free grace in Christ, is not merely when he sees its doctrines in the Scriptures; especially those of Divine sovereignty in election, the particular and effectual redemption of Christ, and the invincible call of the Holy Spirit. Nor is it when he gives mental assent that they are true (though both are vital). The true measure is when he sees them as necessary for his own salvation! “Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean.”

When Pharaoh exalted Joseph to be ruler over Egypt, he made several decrees concerning Joseph, but his instructions to the people were only two. The first was, “Bow the knee” (Genesis 41:43). Next, when the people were in need, he instructed them to “Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do” (Genesis 41:55). Those who would preach the Gospel of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ must strictly adhere to both the content and the order of these decrees. We tell men first of the majesty of His Person, His Lordship and Sovereignty. Should anyone be in need, we direct them to Him, for He alone can save and that by the power of His Word.
