The Great Difference - Published on July 10, 2004
...Every religion except one puts upon you doing something in order to recommend yourself to God. It is only the religion of Christ (which runs counter to all the rest by affirming that we are saved and called with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to the Father's own purpose and grace) which was not sold out to us on certain conditions to be fulfilled by ourselves, but was given us in Christ before the world began. It was long ago remarked by a good man that "It is the busi...

Freedom in Christ's Son - Published on July 10, 2004
..."If the Son make you free, ye shall be free indeed."- John 8:36      What is this freedom? Sometimes God is pleased to grant a manifestation of pardon at once, but oftener gradually. The first token of freedom is, to feel that we are in bondage, that we are sinners; for though all men are alike sinners in the sight of God, all are not blessed with freedom to know it, and to cry out for mercy in consequence thereof. We never cry for mercy, feelingly so, till we enjoy a...

Why Did Christ Die? - Published on July 10, 2004
...    According to some people, Christ died to give all a chance of being saved! I do not know that I hate anything more in my soul than to hear that. It makes Jesus Christ so little-that He should do so much, and after all only to get us a chance of being saved. Why, if a man is set up in business, you see how often it happens that he fails in it; and if man cannot manage the paltry things of time and sense without being insolvent, what will he do with eternal realities? And if you come...

A Righteousness In Which Jehovah Himself Cannot Find A Flaw - Published on July 10, 2004
...We must have a righteousness in which Jehovah Himself cannot find a flaw, a righteousness which Jehovah cannot mend, a righteousness which neither sin nor Satan can mar; and unless we have on a righteousness of this nature, we can never enter into the blessedness of the world to come. Where, then, are we to find it? Eternal praises to the matchless mercy of a covenant God, we have it in the blessed Person, glorious work, and spotless obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ! And, therefore, as it was...

A Sinner Becomes a Saint : William Huntington's Conversion Story - Published on July 10, 2004
...One evening, Huntington was sitting by the fireside reading his Bible when he came across the words, "At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you," John 14:20. These words were at first incomprehensible to Huntington as he had not experienced being 'in Christ' and being thus a new creature. "There must be some secret between Christ and those whom He will save, that I am ignorant of," he exclaimed. As he thought on these things all his ...

Who Preaches the Gospel? : Romans 1:1 - Published on July 10, 2004
...     We cannot do better, when we look for an example of a gospel preacher, than the Apostle Paul. In Romans 1:1, we see how God the Holy Spirit inspired this remarkable man to describe himself as a preacher of the gospel. In doing so, he also describes all those men who truly preach the gospel of Christ.      "Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ" - That man who truly preaches the gospel, that man who always preaches the gospel, that man who preaches the wh...

Do Some Things Happen that are not Predestined? - Published on July 2, 2004
..."In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will (Ephesians 1:11)."      How far the opponents of the doctrine of absolute predestination will go never ceases to amaze those who love the doctrine of Christ.      For instance, there is an idea afoot that says, "God has predestinated some things, of course; but there are some other things whi...
