Let the Lion Out

071320151439-SpurgeonCharles H. Spurgeon

A great many learned men are defending the gospel; no doubt it is a very proper and right thing to do, yet I always notice that, when there are most books of that kind, it is because the gospel itself is not being preached.

Matthew 26 offers a series of short but brilliantly lit scenes surrounding the betrayal of Jesus. The chapter opens with Christ announcing the end of His public preaching ministry. After this, He says to His disciples, “After two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified” (v. 2).

The Prodigal Son I

prodigal-son-smallDr. Gerald Bilkes

The Parable of the Prodigal Son is probably the best known of all Christ’s parables. Indeed, it offers not only a gripping story, but a summary of the gospel of free grace and forgiveness. Yet this parable does more than illustrate and apply the doctrine of repentance. Though it does that stunningly and memorably, this parable gives us a way to view all of life from the perspective of the heart of the Father, as Christ opens it up.

The Deep Things of God

dr-peter-mastersDr. Peter Masters

Wonderful things had happened at Corinth, six years prior to Paul writing these words. As their founding pastor, his preaching had resulted in many remarkable conversions; trophies of grace. This enormously wealthy Greek city, proud of its beautiful buildings, its philosophy and teachers, had yielded up a people humbled by the power of the Spirit and brought to see their need of salvation.

The Hiding Place

hiding-place Hail, sovereign Love, that first began the scheme to rescue fallen man!
Hail, matchless, free, eternal Grace, that gave my soul a hiding place!

Against the God Who rules the sky, I fought, with hand uplifted high
—despised the mention of His grace, too proud to seek a hiding place.

What It Costs to Be a Christian

bible021620151314J.C. Ryle

We are living in strange times. Events are hurrying on with singular rapidity. We never know “what a day may bring forth” (Prov. 27:1). How much less do we know what may happen in a year! We live in a day of great religious profession. Scores of professing Christians in every part of the land are expressing a desire for more holiness and a higher degree of spiritual life. Yet nothing is more common than to see people receiving the Word with joy, and then after two or three years falling away and going back to their sins.

What is the Gospel? (2)

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

Some of you will know that in recent months I have been engaged in a series of expositions of individual texts of the Word of God; texts that in a very focused and concentrated way set forth some of the central truths of the gospel, of the grace of God. I have brought these texts under a heading of a series entitled “Simple Signposts to the Celestial City.”

What is the Gospel? (1)

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

All of the major categories of concern in the biblical gospel are predicated upon some fundamental realities pertaining to God Himself. Where those realities are unknown or disbelieved, the gospel cannot be understood or savingly embraced.

The Crucified Christ

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Cor 2.2).

Preachers should get right to the most important things and not beat around the bush. The apostle Paul illustrated that in his ministry. He spoke about one thing first, last, and in-between—the crucified Christ.

Life or Death (2)

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

The words of Romans 6:23 say, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Using the imagery of the signpost that we have used throughout this entire series, having seen from this signpost the contrasting destinations to which it points, notice with me secondly: the contrasting basis for arriving at these destinations.
