Pristine Grace

Be Strong in the Grace that is Christ
2 Tim 2:1
by Henry Mahan

     Be strong inwardly and outwardly in the grace of our Lord. Be rooted and grounded in His gospel, have a full persuasion of the truth of it and your interest in Him! Preach it boldly and defend it bravely. But also be strong in His providence and dealings in grace with you and yours. Don't profess sovereign grace and then complain about sovereign providence. Pity parties make poor platforms for the preaching of sovereign grace. God's servants are here to "comfort," not to be comforted and coddled.
