Christians And Voting

There are Christians who say that you should not vote in parliamentary elections, and that you should not take any interest in this world’s affairs at all. But that is not true to scriptural teaching for the Christian is still a citizen of this world and belongs to the secular realm. He knows that this …

God’s Great Joy in Redemption

I said this fifteen years ago when we went through the gospel of Luke and came to this chapter. I don’t remember how many messages I preached on this chapter, but I think it was at least ten or more, and I, at the time, said I may be introducing something to you that you …

What is Divisiveness?

I think it will surprise you that Paul regards a divisive person, as one who departs from sound doctrine and the teachings of God’s Word. While we might define divisiveness as taking a strong stance on doctrine and purposely causing division in the church. Not for Paul, divisiveness was anything that went against the gospel …

My Grace Is Sufficient

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in your weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 Not your strength, not your wisdom, not your prayers, not your experience; …but “My grace”—My free, My matchless grace, independent of all works and efforts, independent of everything in the creature—flowing wholly and solely, fully and freely, …

That kind of effort at worship is a perversion. Real acts of worship must be the overflow of a worshiping life… As God warms the …

Preach The Word!

Take care, oh preacher, that you do not blunt the word, or try to cover over its edge; for that would be treason to the Lord who made it to be sharp and cutting. There is much about the true gospel which offends, and it should be our desire never to tamper with it, or …

Christian Character

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:5 Christians should excel in the manifestation of Christ’s character. The mind which was in Jesus, should be in them. They should consider His character as a model of their own; and be conspicuous for their . . . poverty of spirit, …

The Healthy Church

There should be some non-negotiables on which you must never compromise. In particular, make certain that the church is committed to: The Bible as the fully inspired, inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word of God. That God is exalted as holy, sovereign and all-wise. That salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. …

Practical Christianity

There is a common complaint these days, that there is a lack of power in Christianity, and that the church does not shake the world as it did in former years. Shall I tell you what the reason is, in plain words? It is the low tone of life which is so sadly prevalent among …
