Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

There are many things I do not understand. However, I do understand that God’s ways are higher than my ways, and his thoughts are higher than my thoughts (Isaiah 55:9). With the mind I have now I cannot think on such a high level. But I understand that God is infinite in wisdom and knowledge. Almighty God can do no wrong for He is light and in Him is no darkness at all. I know that He does all things for His glory and the good of His children. I know how God can be a just God and a Savior through the blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ. I know that someday all God’s children shall have the mind of Christ perfectly (I Corinthians 2:16) and then shall they understand clearly.

“Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not no...

Israel kept wanting to go back to Egypt every time trouble came their way. Their greatest problem was unbelief. God went before them in a cloud to guide them, and behind them as a wall of fire to protect them, they had nothing to fear. I may not know what is coming up behind me or what is before me. However, I do know that God is behind and before. So what is a believer to do? Trust God who is already there.

Many, so called preachers, especially Baptist preachers, make much of the place called hell. To them, salvation is all about heaven and hell. The issue of salvation has nothing to do with a place. The real issue is, how can a sinful man like me stand in the presence of a Holy God and be accepted. It has to do with being made one with God, being able to have fellowship with God. God is light, and I am darkness, God is holy, and I am sin. There cannot be two more different people than God and me. How can I be in union with the Almighty? The answer is found in the gospel of Christ and him crucified. In Jesus Christ I am complete, Colossians 2:10. I have everything God requires me to have, and to be, in Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 1:30. Al...

There are many things that are important to us; our families, careers, health, etc. However, there in one thing that surpasses all others and it is my union to Christ. Nothing compares to this. It is the one thing needful above all others. Without Christ I am lost, my life on this earth is vanity, useless, but not so in Christ. In Christ I am loved, redeemed, forgiven, accepted, pardoned and righteous. Let’s never lose sight of what really is important. “But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:42)

Jesus Christ is my Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification and Redemption. He is all my Hope, my High Priest, my Sacrifice, my Mediator. His blood is the atonement for my sins. He is my Lord and my God. Jesus Christ is all I need to stand in God’s presence accepted. It does not get any better than this.

Much of today’s preaching has to do with making Christ our savior. If God is pleased to save us, it will be God the Father who made Him our Saviour. It is God who made Christ to be our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption (I Corinthians 1:30). I do not make Christ to be anything: however God the Father made Him to be everything to His people; Christ is our all in all by the power and purpose of God (Colossians 3:11).

Some years ago I was questioned by a group of men at a certain church looking for a pastor. They asked me if I preached messages against abortion. I replied, “Christ is my message.” They replied, “We know that.” Again they asked, “Do you preach messages against rock and roll.” I replied, Christ is my message, they replied, “We know that.” I then replied, “We can get women to quit having abortions, we can get our young people (and older) to quit listening to rock and roll and they will still end up in hell. Only Christ can save sinners from their sins, from the guilt of them, from the reigning power of them, from the condemning power of them. “Give me Christ or else I die.”

The sin of Lot’s wife was looking back. Her heart was still in Sodom and Gomorra. The believer’s heart is to always be looking to Christ, always pressing forward toward the mark; and Christ is that mark we press forward to (Philippians 3:14). We do not look with desire to go back as the children of Israel did so many times when trouble came. But we keep moving forward till we reach home. “And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward” (Exodus 14:15).

Prayer is not just saying some words, some prayers cannot even be uttered with words but groans. Prayer is an attitude, it is communion with God all day, every day.

John Chapman

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for 
this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (I Thessolonians 5:16-18).
