Good Advice or Good News?

In many American churches, the Good News of what Jesus Christ has accomplished for us has been replaced with Good Advice about what we can do for God. We have replaced the proclamation of Christ and Him crucified with an easy-listening legalism of “do more and try harder.” In this message, Dr. R.C. Sproul explains …

Fellowship With Christ

What the sun is to the day, what the moon is to the night, what the dew is to the flower, such is Jesus Christ to us. What bread is to the hungry, clothes to the naked, the shadow of a great rock to the traveler in a weary land, such is Jesus Christ to …

What God Thinks of Us

One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves, is what God thinks of us. One has pointed out that in every man, there are four different men: the man whom the neighbors see, the man whom one’s family sees, the man whom the person himself sees, and the man whom God sees. The …

Be Sure Your Sin Will Find You Out!

I was reading in the Old Testament, in Numbers, when I came across this verse. Numbers 32:23, But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out. In the context of this verse is a caution for the tribes of Reuben and …

Again I Say Rejoice

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Philippians 4:4 It is a good thing to rejoice in the Lord. Perhaps you found the first dose ineffectual. Keep on with your medicine, and when you cannot feel any joy, when there is no wellspring and no seeming comfort and encouragement, still rejoice, and …

Hope for Discouraged Saints

This is a very hard time for the church. The church is, at least in name, filled with false teachers, defecting pastors, immoral leaders; proud, arrogant men; power being usurped by women; division, racial hatred and animus; bad theology, worldliness. It’s a very dire time, and it is compounded by the fact that we feel …

Beloved, What Is Heaven?

What is the final glory of the saints? It is the best place, the richest inheritance provided by the Father for the people ransomed and redeemed by the precious blood of His dear Son! And when we enter there, we shall enter as children welcomed to a Father’s home! It will be the best that …
