An Eager Anticipation

Albert N. Martin

Examining Our Repentance

Thomas Watson

These are the blessed fruits and products of repentance. If we can find these in our souls, we have arrived at that repentance which is never to be repented of (2Co 7:10).

Pious Sins of the Tongue

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him? —Job 13:7.

“Pious sins of the tongue” is my attempt, I trust, to capture the incongruity of talk about God that is unworthy of Him and of His truth, and therefore, that has spiritually deadly effect toward others, especially when they lack discernment, but even then the hearers do not wholly escape injury.

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

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
