Believers sometimes ask for more faith and stronger faith. We must pray to God as faith is His gift to us through the Lord Jesus Christ. We must, however, realize that God does not give faith mystically, magically, or without means. The means of faith in its growth and continuance is the Word of God – “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). To… Read More

Just before the death of actor W. C. Fields, a friend visited Fields’ hospital room and was surprised to find him thumbing through a Bible. Asked what he was doing with a Bible, Fields replied, “I’m looking for loopholes.” Men often look for loopholes in the law to avoid paying taxes or to side-step the penalty of a law they have broken, but when it comes to salvation and passing the test… Read More

Oh, forget every thing that seems worthy in you, or done by you; and let all your triumphing and glorying be in the free grace of God, in Christ, and look upon yourselves only in that and all things coming to you, receive as flowing from that fountain only. And if you have more ability than others in doing, let it not come into your thoughts as an inducement to think better… Read More

“But by the grace of God, I am what I am” 1 Corinthians 15:10 Brethren, that which distinguishes us from the world can be summed up in one word – GRACE! Now it is certain that most people who claim to know and love the grace of God do not know the reality of it, but that does not alter the fact that we who truly believe and rest in Christ for… Read More

“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3 So who then are the “poor in spirit”? They are those who have been brought, by the life giving power of God the Holy Spirit, to know of their spiritual poverty – to know that they have nothing to pay, nothing to merit or earn them anything before God. They have been convinced of sin by the… Read More

“Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to Him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.” (Romans 7:4) One of the great and gracious results of our union with Christ by faith is “that we should bring forth fruit unto God” (Romans 7:4). Notice, it is NOT that… Read More

“But ye have obeyed from the heart” (Romans 6:17) This obedience is the obedience of faith in Christ and repentance of dead works that comes by the sovereign power of the Holy Spirit in the new birth. The “heart” is the mind, affections, and the will. It is the very center being of a person. This obedience from the heart is more than intellectual knowledge and outward form. As the heart is… Read More

“But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: Thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.” (Psalm 40:17) One who seeks to justify doubts concerning his own salvation may reason like this – “I don’t doubt the power of the blood of Christ to cleanse me from all my sins, but I do doubt my own interest in it.” My friends, you have… Read More

An excerpt from, “The Life of Faith” by William Romaine (1714-1795) The Gospel, in the power of the Holy Spirit, uncovers unto a sinner the way of salvation contrived in the covenant of grace, and manifests to him what the ever blessed Trinity had therein purposed, and what in the fulness of time was accomplished. That all the perfections of the Godhead might be infinitely and everlastingly glorified, the Father covenanted to… Read More

“Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” (Isaiah 55:1) Many of you may have heard or read the acronym of the word “GRACE” which goes like this: G (God’s) R (Riches) A (At) C (Christ’s) E (Expense). Redemption, even salvation itself, costs us nothing. The price is… Read More

God’s grace is sufficient (more than enough) to save all His people in and by the Lord Jesus Christ. God’s grace is sufficient to redeem all His people in and by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and justify them completely based on His righteousness alone. God’s grace is sufficient to regenerate and convert all His people in and by the Lord Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit… Read More

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:1-3) We have all heard it said that some people are “so heavenly minded they are no earthly good.” Those who use religion or… Read More

Isaiah 41:8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Who is God speaking to in this chapter? To begin with God is speaking to the islands, which is a reference to the islands in the Mediterranean. But in a broader sense, God is speaking to all the nations of the then known world which were grouped around the Mediterranean Sea. What was… Read More

Job said, “Behold, I go forward, but He is not there; I go backward, but I cannot perceive Him.” (Job 23:8) “I GO FORWARD.” Frequently believers are overtaken with this fault; and in saying this, I speak for myself. We come to the conclusion that because God has given to us a sweet revelation of Himself and His word, therefore He is bound to reveal Himself, empower us, and crown our efforts… Read More

Solomon wrote God: “hath made every thing beautiful in His time: also He hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11) Setting “the world in their heart” means that God has implanted in the heart of each person an awareness of eternity, that this life is not the end.
