The Consequences of Sin

So with us. Many a sin which the believer has committed God has pardoned, but the consequences come, all the same, you may have the guilt forgiven but you cannot undo the sin, there it remains, and our children and our children’s children may have to smart for sins which God has forgiven to us. …

Did You Lose Christ?

Tell me where you lost the company of Christ, and I will tell you the most likely place for you to find him again. Did you lose the company of Christ by forgetting prayer, and becoming slack in your devotion? Have you lost Christ in the closet? Then you will find him there. Did you …

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.

The members may by necessity be scattered over the surface of the earth and separated by distance and circumstances, but in …

Before Dr. MacArthur stood up to preach, he read the entire chapter 6 of Daniel (you can read here) as a foundation to what I call a historical sermon. I stand with John MacArthur, the Elders, and Grace Community Church! “We understand that the world does not understand the importance of the church, the world …

It Costs Something to be a True Christian!

“And you cannot be My disciple if you do not carry your own cross and follow Me.” Luke 14:27 It costs something to be a true Christian! Let that never be forgotten. To be a ‘mere nominal Christian’, and go to church—is cheap and easy work. But to hear Christ’s voice,…and follow Christ,…and believe in …

Faith Both Justifies and Sanctifies

“Having purified their hearts by faith.” Acts 15:9 Faith is a heart-purifying grace. Faith is a virgin grace, of a pure and heavenly nature. Faith is in the soul, as medicine in the body, which works out the disease. Faith works out pride, self-love, and hypocrisy. Faith consecrates the heart. That which was before the …
