Studying “The Holiness of God” by R.C. Sproul

In order to cultivate a vision of God's holiness and a passion for Christ in our people in our local congregation, we have directed our Bible Study groups to discuss, meditate and learn from R.C. Sproul's book "The Holiness of God", an exposition on Isaiah chapter 6. We begun this study on the second week of December and has continued through other groups through today. The book consists of 11 chapters and I'll be posting ...

Christ Knows and Keeps his Sheep

"...My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.” —John 10:27-30 My soul, with joy attend, While Jesus silence breaks; No angel’s harp such ...

The Importance of Learning for the Christian

Convince them how impossible it is to go the way to heaven without knowing it, when there are so many difficulties and enemies in the way; and when men cannot do their worldly business without knowledge, nor learn a trade without an apprenticeship. Convince them what a contradiction it is to be a Christian, and yet to refuse to learn; for what is a Christian but a disciple of Christ? And how can he be a ...

Avoiding Spiritual Dry Rot

There is an evil under the sun which is as terrible as an open catastrophe,—indeed, it works greater ill to the church in the long run,—and that is, when a man's ministry is eaten through and through with spiritual dry rot. I heard an old Indian describe the way in which furniture may be devoured by the white ants. The ants will come into the house, and eat up everything; and yet, to all appearance, nothing ...

Motto For the New Year: “Look Up!”

"Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near!" Luke 21:28 We are entering upon a new year, we shall have new toils, new trials, new temptations, and new troubles. In whatever state, in whatever place, into whatever condition we may be brought this year--let us seek grace to follow our Lord's loving advice, and "look up!" Do not look back--as Lot's wife did. Do not look within—as too many do. Do not look around—as David did. But "look up!" Look up to ...

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven to earth come down; Fix in us thy humble dwelling; All thy faithful mercies crown!

Come, Almighty to deliver, Let us all ...

Thy Presence Alone Can Make Me Holy

O God, Most high, most glorious, the thought of Thine infinite serenity cheers me, for I am toiling and moiling, troubled and distressed, but Thou art for ever at perfect peace.
