The Grace of God Has Appeared Saving to All Men

Albert N. Martin

Grace brings salvation to hell-deserving sinners. Grace in the Person and work of Jesus and in the outpoured Spirit, that grace has not only appeared saving to all men, but it comes instructing. What is its instruction? Instructing us to the intent that we deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, turning away from everything that is unlike God.

As You Grieve, Consider What Jesus Gained

Albert N. Martin

If truth will disciple us even in our grieving (Phil. 4:8), we must think more of what Jesus has gained by this death than upon what we have lost. At the moment the soul of a Christian is separated from the body, the divine purpose of His own sacrifice is fulfilled, the desire of God’s heart is satisfied, and holy joy is accomplished.

Christ Commanded Repentance

Charles H. Spurgeon

Repent ye, and believe the gospel —Mark 1:15.

What is your repentance? Have you a repentance that leads you to look out of self to Christ and to Christ only? On the other hand, have you that faith which leads you to true repentance? To hate the very thought of sin?

Redemption’s Three Parties

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he (Jer 31.11).

Jeremiah foretold days of restoration for Israel after she had been decimated by well-deserved discipline for her apostasy. Through Jeremiah, the LORD promised to bring the exiles home and bless them again beyond anything they had ever known. Both the exile of Judah (586 B.C.) and the several waves of returning exiles were yet future; Jeremiah lived to see the first but not the second.
