    Psalm 14:3b — ‘There is none that doeth good, no, not one.’     “Origen maketh a question, how it could be said that there was none, neither among the Jews nor Gentiles, that did any good; seeing there were many among them which did clothe the naked, feed the hungry, and did […]

    “The pursuing love of God is the greatest wonder of the spiritual universe. We leave God in the heat of our own self-desire and run from His will because we want so much to have our own way. We get to a crossroads and look back in pride, thinking that we have put […]

“If you are Christ’s servant, take a sheet of paper, and write down, ‘Lord, I bring my loaves and fishes to Thee’; and if you are not Christ’s, confess the awful truth to yourself, and face it. I wish that you would make a record of it in black and white, putting down both name […]

Paul the Apostle

Romans 1:16-17

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.””

 

Martin Luther

‘A Meditation on Christ’s Passion’

“The real and true work of Christ’s passion is to make man conformable to Christ, so that man’s conscience is tormented by his sins in like measure as Christ was pitiably tormented in body and soul by our sins.”

 

George Whitefield

‘The Extent & Reasonableness of Self-Denial’

“Whoever reads the gospel with a single eye, and sincere intentions, will find, that our blessed Lord took all opportunities of reminding his disciples that His Kingdom was not of this world; that His doctrine was a doctrine of the Cross; and that their professing themselves to be His followers, would call them to a constant state of voluntary suffering and self-denial.”

 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

‘Christ is All’

“If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Saviour of men. If He be something He must be everything, and if He be not everything He is nothing to you.”

 

 

Why do we need Saving?

In our natural, fallen state, we are unable to live righteously and obediently to God. Sin, being heinous and contradictory to God, is justly deserving of curse and wrath. We cannot redeem ourselves from this predicament.

God, in His supreme goodness, came to dwell among us and bear the Cross of condemnation for the sins of His people. Through Christ Jesus, justified by faith alone in His work of atonement and His Truth, we receive His righteousness and become heirs to the Kingdom of God.
