A True Pastor’s Greatest Joy

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth (3 John 4).

John the Apostle is an example of a man with the heart of a true pastor. John loves the Church like Christ loves the Church—the calling of every disciple of Christ (John 13.34), and an absolutely indispensable requirement of those entrusted with shepherding God’s flock.

Christ is Man (2)

Thomas Brooks

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth (John 1:14).

Christ took to Himself the whole human nature in both the essential parts of man: soul and body. The two essential and constitutive parts of man are soul and body; where these two are, there is the true man. Now Christ had both: therefore, He was true man.

True Faith and Loving Christ

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

True faith in Christ will always lead to and be accompanied by love to the Person of Christ. The Scriptures are very clear in declaring to us the unique place of faith as the sole means by which we appropriate and receive Christ and all the salvation that’s in Him. We must never, never budge from a clear understanding that faith is assigned a unique place.

Meditation

C.H. Spurgeon

“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” —Genesis 3:15.

This is the first promise to fallen man. It contains the whole gospel, and the essence of the covenant of grace.

Why Yearn for the Return of Christ? (2)

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

Belief in and expectation of the return of Christ was indeed a vital element of ordinary, New Testament, Christian experience. So much so that the little Aramaic phrase maranatha, O Lord, come, became part of the common verbal stuff of the churches, the consciousness that the faith of the Christian was a faith that looked forward to the consummation at the coming of Christ.

God Our Home

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations (Psa 90.1).

The fruit of the saving work accomplished by the Father, Son, and Spirit, is that the saved enjoy fellowship distinctly with each Person of the blessed Trinity. Our experience of that fellowship will be perfected in the consummation when Christ returns.

The incarnation of Christ is a most extraordinary and amazing affair. It is wonderful indeed that the eternal Son of God should become man; that He should be born of a pure virgin without any concern of man in it; that this should be brought about by the power of the Holy Ghost in a way unseen, imperceptible, and unknown, signified by His overshadowing; and all this in order to effect the most wonderful work that ever was done in the world: the redemption and salvation of men. —John Gill
When “the Word became flesh,” He did not cease for a moment to be God. No doubt He was pleased to veil His divinity and to hide His power, and more especially so at some seasons. He emptied Himself of external marks of glory and was called “the carpenter.” But He never laid His divinity aside. God cannot cease to be God. It was as the God-man that He lived, suffered, died, and rose again. —J. C. Ryle
Are you able to rejoice in tribulations? Are you happy in spite of the world? Do you have contentment? Are you independent of the world and all its noise and bustle, its empty show, and all that may happen in it? Do you have a place of rest and peace and quiet—a calm, undisturbed joy that the world can neither give nor take away? If you have these things, “great grace” is upon you—the grace of God in Jesus Christ.
—David Martyn Lloyd Jones
