The Divine View of Discipleship

Luke 14:25-33 is a most instructive text that provides us with our Lord’s standard of what constitues true discipleship. We will be primarily referring to this text in considering this vital theme. Many Christians today claim to be followers or disciples of Jesus Christ, yet their thoughts, beliefs and actions could not be further from the mind and will of God. Sadly, to be a Christian today often means very little as far as one’s lifestyle and priorities are concerned.

Holy Men and a Holy Mount

by Charles J. Woodbridge

Evangelism is the heartthrob of the Christian enterprise, the proclamation of the changeless Gospel of Christ to the ends of the earth. To this task the Church of the Son of God needs constantly and prayerfully to dedicate herself. She must "evangelize or fossilize." She must press onward with the good news of salvation, or slip backward into powerlessness and frustration. War or no war, the glad tidings of the grace of God must be sounded forth with clarion voice to a lost and dying world.

Salvation and Safety

by Charles H. Spurgeon

God’s people are always safe. But God’s people are only safe through the blood because He sees the blood mark on their brow. They are bought with the precious blood of Christ. Nothing can hurt them because “the blood” is upon them.

Christ Jesus, like the lamb, was not only a divinely-appointed victim, but He was spotless. Had there been one sin in Christ, He had not been capable of being our Saviour; but He was without sin. Turn, then, your eye to the cross and see Jesus bleeding and dying for you.

Deliverance!

[The following article, written by Pastor M. H. Reynolds, Jr., discusses five areas of life in which we as Christians are "delivered" or "made free" due to the person and work of Jesus Christ. In an age in which so many people find themselves in bondage to sin, fear and uncertainty, it is a blessing to know that we are free!]

 We Are Delivered from the Power of Darkness (Col. 1:9-14)

"Why Do the Heathen Rage?"

The terrorist attack against the United States on September 11, 2001, shook our nation to its very core. It was indeed a “wake-up call” for America, for we now realize that we must be strong, alert and aware of the fact that liberty requires vigilance and that enemies, who are willing to go to inexplicably terrible ends to see America destroyed, abound without and within our country. Clearly, national security and the administration of justice are required as never before.
