An aged Christian, lying, on his death-bed in a state of such extreme weakness that he was often entirely unconscious of all around him, was asked the cause of his perfect peace. He replied, "When I am able to think, I think of Jesus; and when I am unable to think of him, I know he is thinking of me." 


The Scriptures plainly say,  "He that believeth on the Son of God hath eternal life."  I plan to leave it right there--adding nothing and taking nothing away.  Jesus Christ is the all-sufficient Saviour, and he that believes on Him is not condemned.  I also add that this matter of justification by faith is the article by which a church, a minister, or a professor of Christianity stands or falls.  There is no bridge between MERIT and MERCY.   They are as far apart as the poles and never the twain shall meet.    Pastor Henry Mahan 




without human responsibility leads men to fatalism and indifference. "Who can resist His will? Then why blame me for sinning?" Romans 9:18-19

without Divine intervention leads men to despair and helplessness. "How then can a man be just with God? How can He be clean that is born of a woman." Job 25:4


SOVEREIGN ELECTION without means and response leads men to idleness and an unjust view of God. "I knew that thou art a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, so I did nothing." Matthew 25:4


HUMAN EFFORT and means without Divine purpose leads men to pride and self-righteousness. "Being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness..." Romans 10:3


THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST, or the reign of Christ on earth without the reign of Christ in the heart leads men to seek rewards, position, and self glory. "Grant that my sons may sit one on thy right hand and one on thy left in thy kingdom." Matthew 20:21


RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES and even outstanding gifts and service without love for Christ and others lead men to empty service and worthless sacrifice. "Though I bestow my goods to feed the poor and my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing." 1 Corinthians 13:3


SPIRIT WITHOUT TRUTH is wildfire; truth without spirit is dead orthodoxy. Grace without obedience is disgrace; obedience without grace is disobedience. 


William Cowper  1774

God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
And rides upon the storm.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind the frowning providence,
He hides a smiling face.
He hides a smiling face.

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds you so much dread
Are big with mercy and will break
With blessings on your head.
With blessings on your head.

His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
But sweet will be the flower.

(Tune: "Majestic Sweetness") 

(Exodus 33:19)  "And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy."
