On the Right Use of the Law

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Do not seek to be justified by the law, nor to ignore it completely. Let it convict you of your sins, show you God’s glory, instruct you in righteousness, and make you depend on God’s grace through our Lord Jesus Christ.

He Shall Come II

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

It is the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Against Hastening to Remove from our Post of Duty

Charles H. Spurgeon

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
