CALL TO WORSHIP

(Tune: Brethren, We Have Met)

Lord, we've met to see Thy beauty

And to worship at Thy feet;

May we ask to see more clearly

Grace and glory, rich and sweet.

Tell us more of Christ our Savior,

In Him all Thy people bless;

Let us dwell with Thee forever

In the LORD OUR RIGHT­EOUSNESS.

Christ our Light and our Salvation,

God is just to justify;

By His merits we're forgiven,

"God is gracious," is our cry.

Confidence in God our Savior,

Free to serve and worship now;

We shall reign with Christ in glory;

At the throne of grace we bow.

FREE-WILL - THE FREEDOM OF SLAVERY

Our Lord said to the Jewish leaders of His day, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me. And ye will not come to Me that ye might have life” (John 5:39-40). While many are quick to defend the freedom of man’s will, our Lord essentially dashed that heresy to pieces with these words. No man has ever or will ever, by his own defiled volition, come to Christ to be saved by His blood and righteousness. Man’s natural will is free only in the sense that it is at liberty to do whatever his evil heart desires, subject of course, to the sovereign purpose of God. It would be far more accurate to say that man’s supposed freedom is merely the freedom of slavery. He is in bondage to sin; Satan holds him captive at his will (2 Timothy 2:26). Man, uninfluenced by free grace, has neither the desire nor the ability to draw near to Christ by faith. “No man can come to Me except the Father which hath sent Me draw Him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44). Man is free in the same sense a prisoner in a jail cell is free. He has the liberty to do within that cell whatever he may desire, but he has no ability to release himself. Furthermore, the unregenerated sinner does not even realize he is in bondage, so he has no awareness of his spiritual captivity. How could anyone, therefore, ever conclude that man’s will is free? Rather than speak of man’s free-will, it would be more accurate and appropriate to ascribe to every man self-will. The will of man is controlled by sinful and wicked self, that is, a depraved heart which is said to be stony, (Ezekiel 11:19), foolish (Ephesians 4:18) and desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9). The only way any sinner desires Christ and comes to Him for a full pardon and free justification is because of the free grace of God that makes him willing to be saved by the merits of another. “Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power...” (Psalm 110:3).

--- Pastor Jim Byrd

It is not enough to hear sound gospel preaching. Judas heard all of Christ’s sermons. We need the illuminating power of the Spirit of grace to drive the gospel home to our hearts.

(copied)

THE SOVEREIGN PROTECTOR

A sovereign Protector I have, unseen, yet forever at hand,
Unchangeably faithful to save, almighty to rule and command.
He smiles, and my comforts abound; His grace as the dew shall descend;
And walls of salvation surround, the soul He delights to defend.

--- Augustus Toplady

Faith & Believing

Many, despising disputes about faith, take a pleasure in saying, “if we do as we would be done by, we hope God will not condemn us, or make any inquiry about what was our faith.” Agreed; do this, and you shall live. If you hope then to live by doing your duty, take care henceforth to do it perfectly. If you have already sinned, hope to live by your repentance, take care that your repentance be sincere, uniform, effectual, and permanent. Let your repentance be such an effectual turning away from all sin, as to admit of no return in any one instance. Let it be such a turning to righteousness as to admit of no failure. For the moment you fail in any one instance, all your former righteousness goes for nothing. Hearken not to the teachers, who would persuade you to compromise or abridge your duty into one or more acts of faith, contrition, or repentance. This would be making void; yea, mocking both the Law and the Gospel, for neither of these acknowledge that for righteousness which comes short of perfection. Do not then imagine that God will accept of any righteousness short of perfection, be it called sincerity or by any other name. If you pretend then to do anything less or more in order to acceptance with God, you must do everything. God is not mocked. Go not about to impose on yourselves, by substituting, instead of the perfect obedience that God’s Law requires, any ambiguous, equivocal acts or motions of the heart. For you cannot do your duty to purpose, unless in plain terms, and in good earnest, you obey every Divine precept, performing everything required, and avoiding everything forbidden by the Divine Law. On the other hand, if there be any of you who, after many repeated trials, have found all your most serious endeavors to do your duty to prove in the issue both unsuccessful and deceitful, and have accordingly been brought to despair of so much as thinking one good thought, if it could save your souls forever, then certainly you have great reason to bless God for that Gospel, which evinces, with the highest kind of demonstration, that all is already done; {accomplished by Christ, for that which Christ did long before we were born is alone sufficient to justify us as we presently stand;} for - the Gospel is called the ministration of righteousness, as it brings the glad tidings that a perfect righteousness is already wrought for the ungodly. The Law came demanding righteousness; the Gospel brings you the good news, that its demand is fully answered. Are you persuaded of this; or does this stand true in your consciences? Then you have found an answer to that most pinching of all questions, “wherewith shall I come before the Lord?” And now you can understand the nature of the command to believe, that it is not a command calling you to do anything, or any new law of works, but the gracious voice of God willing you to know, that everything required is already done, even a gracious proclamation, stamped with the highest proofs of Divine Authority, approaching you with all the force of a Divine Law, and carrying in itself evidence all sufficient to command the belief or persuasion of your hearts. For how vain, how absurd is it to talk of a command to believe, that carries not along with it evidence sufficient to command persuasion, or to produce belief in the heart.

--- Robert Sandeman {Essay on Preaching, 1763}
