“God’s Glory”

     Back in old eternity our Great, Majestic, Triune God predetermined that Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, would become a man (Mt. 1:18 - 23) and be crucified by wicked hands.  But it was by the determinant counsel and foreknowledge of God (Acts 2:23).  Jesus Christ the God-man has risen from the grave, and is now seated  in heaven as Lord of all (Acts 10:36), working all things after the counsel of His own will (Eph. 1:11).

     Moreover, God has chosen a particular people to be recipients of His amazing grace.  Those who are given faith to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as He is set forth on the pages of Holy Scripture, will see God’s Glory in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 4:5 - 6).  Having mercy on whom He will have mercy is God’s Glory.  He told Moses that very truth, and Paul repeated those very words in Romans 9:15 - 16.

     In addition, everything that happens in time was purposed by God before time began, and executed by the sovereign power of Jesus Christ at God’s appointed time.  This is what every enlightened child of God is pleased to confess for the glory of Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:28; Phil. 2:5 - 15).  Brethren, all things are of God (2 Cor. 5:17 - 18).  How important is it to give God all the glory?  Read Acts 12:21 - 23).          Pastor Gene Harmon

FAITH IS GOD’S GIFT

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9).

   “Wherever faith exists, it is the gift of God. Faith is not a plant that grows spontaneously in the soil of corrupt human nature. It matters not whether we are talking about little faith or great faith, it is the gift of God.  If we find faith in one who was raised under the sound of the gospel by godly parents, with loving care and discipline, it is the gift of God.  If faith is found in one who was raised in infidelity as an educated barbarian and has lived all the former part of his life in the most vile profligacy, his faith, too, is the gift of God.  Faith is the gift of grace, the operation of God, the work of the Holy Spirit, in no way dependent upon man (Ephesians 1:19-20; 2:8-9; Philippians 1:29; Colossians 12:12).”

                                                                                   Pastor Don Fortner


“And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:  To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
