Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

Romans 5:14 "Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come."

Infants, dying in infancy, the Spirit of God tells us have not sinned “after the similitude of Adam’s transgression.” They, like all the human race, sinned in our father Adam. But God the Holy Ghost tells us plainly – “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father” (Ezekiel 18:20). It is obvious then that dying infants, having committed no offence of their own, are chosen, redeemed, and born again by the grace of God, and must be saved.

These, is equally obvious, will constitute the great bulk of Christ’s kingd...

Physical sickness is an instrument by which God makes his saints more healthy. By weakness he makes us strong. By need he teaches us to pray. By great sorrow he opens the door for great comfort.

No one has ever done anything to or against me that can even begin to compare with what I have done to and against my God, both before he saved me and since. If God in heaven has forgiven me, it should be easy for me to forgive you of anything. Spirit of God, give me such grace.

God’s love is not a passion, but both an attribute and an act of his infinite being. God’s love toward his elect is his sovereign, eternal benevolence toward us, his eternal purpose and determination to deliver, bless, and save us, arising from “the good pleasure of his will.” God’s love is his eternal complacency, delight, approval, and acceptance of his chosen in Christ.

One great difference between believers and lost religionists is this: lost religionists fit the worship of God into their lives. Believers arrange their lives around the worship of God.

Believing God, we cannot compromise! If we truly believe God, we will serve Him with confidence and peace, simply trusting His total sovereignty, power, wisdom, and grace. The fear of man shall not be a threat to us; the favor of man shall not be a motive to us. The circumstances of the hour shall not pressure us, and the desire for results shall not alter our message nor cause us to employ the devised methods of others. If we believe God, we will simply perform our responsibilities faithfully and wait on the Lord to perform His work according to His own will.

The law cannot save. It cannot give life. It cannot justify. It cannot make a sinner righteous. It cannot sanctify. It cannot bless. The law of God is holy, and just, and good; but it can never produce good in us or for us. The law is a ministration of death. It exposes sin, declares guilt, curses and condemns the guilty, and ministers death. It genders bondage, but never liberty. It condemns, but never blesses.

If we are to be saved, justified, made righteous before God, and blessed by him, we must look elsewhere. The broken law makes us lost sinners. And what the law once does, it cannot undo. It destroys, but cannot build. It imprisons, but cannot deliver from prison. The law kills, but cannot make alive. Sinai has the thunder and the te...

This gospel ordinance was established by our Lord as a clear line of separation between his church and the world. By our immersion in the watery grave, believers confess their faith in Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice (his death, burial, and resurrection in our place) as our only basis of hope before God. Rising out of the watery tomb, we confess our hope of the resurrection and our consecration to Christ, our resolve to walk with him in the newness of life. Thus confessing Christ as our Lord, we declare that all our former religion and religious works were but the uncleanness of idolatry, identifying ourselves with Christ, his people, and his Gospel.
