Our Afflictions are Light! Our afflictions are light, when compared with what we really deserve. They are light, when compared with the sufferings of the Lord Jesus. But perhaps their real lightness is best seen, by comparing them with the weight of glory which is awaiting us!
â€śFor our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 --Arthur Pink *****
Tried, Tested and True People like to say to grace preachers that you preach an old fashioned gospel, all you do is focus upon Christ. To that we say a hearty AMEN.
Yes we do preach an old fashioned gospel, one that's tried, tested and true and one that speaks only of the Lord Jesus Christ! It is the same Gospel that Peter, Paul, and many others preached! Praise His mighty name!
â€śFor I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greekâ€ť (Romans 1:16).
â€śFor therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faithâ€ť (Romans 1:17). --Pastor Wayne
***** Christ Must Be All! "Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is All, and in all." Colossians 3:11
"Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2
We cannot keep our eye too exclusively or too intently fixed on Jesus. All salvation is in Him. All salvation proceeds from Him. All salvation leads to Him. And for the assurance and comfort of our salvation, we are to repose believingly and entirely on Him. Christ the beginning â€” Christ the center â€” and Christ the end.
Oh sweet truth â€” to you who are sensible of your spiritual poverty, vileness, and insufficiency, and of the ten thousand flaws and failures of which, perhaps, no one is cognizant but God and your own soul! Oh, to turn and rest in Christ â€” a full Christ â€” a loving Christ â€” a tender Christ, whose heart's love never chills, from whose eye darts no reproof, from whose lips breathes no sentence of condemnation! Christ must be all! --Octavius Winslow *****
Psalm 37:7 â€śRest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.â€ť *****
