Let us hear Thy Voice, O LORD

"The Master is come, and calleth for thee , " -John 11:28 [KJV]     My soul, mark how gracious the Lord is to His people in the special and distinguishing tokens of His grace. Jesus doth not barely send His gospel to the church, or house, or family; but He speaketh by the soft, but powerful whispers of His love, to the individual soul. "To thee is the word of His salvation sent." Hence the soul who feels the sovereignty of His word in the constraining influences with which it is accompanied, cries out, I shall never forget Thy word, for by it Thou hast quickened me.     But besides the calls of His grace in His house of prayer, in how many ways, and by what a variety of methods, is the Lord Jesus calling upon His people. My soul, I hope that thou art always upon the look out, and art getting to thy watch-tower to hear what the Lord thy God hath to say to thee, by His word, by His providences, His chastisements in love, and in all the gracious manifestat

A Free, Full and Eternal Salvation

“IT IS GOD WHO JUSTIFIES" -Romans 8:33 [KJV] Behold the eternal security of the weakest believer in Jesus. The act of justification, once passed under the great seal of the resurrection of Christ, God can never revoke without denying Himself. Here is our safety. Here is the ground of our dauntless challenge, “Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God who justifies.” What can I need more? What more can I ask? If God, the God of spotless purity, the God of inflexible righteousness, justifies me, “who is he that condemns?” Sin may condemn, but it is God that justifies! The law may alarm, but it is God that justifies! Satan may accuse, but it is God that justifies! Death may terrify, but it is God that justifies! “If GOD is for us, who can be against us?” Who will dare condemn the soul whom He justifies? How gloriously will this truth shine forth in the great day of judgment! Every accuser will then be dumb. Every tongue will then be silent. Nothing shall be

GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST!

Unto the Lord my God I trace, That I am saved by sovereign grace; ‘Tis with a sense of sin I see, Naught else but grace could set me free. ‘Twas grace which e’er the world was made, Ordained my debt of sin be paid; What lovingkindness then was shown, God chose me out to be His own. Behold amazing, wondrous grace, Christ Jesus came and took my place; With Him the Father was well-pleased, His bloody death God’s wrath appeased. Grace reigns through righteousness alone, For Jesus suffered grief unknown; The law was fully satisfied, When for our sins He bled and died. Ascended high upon His throne, Christ reigns in glory all His own; By His resistless quick’ning grace, By faith I now the Son embrace. So this my song of songs shall be, I’m saved by grace so rich and free; Soon I shall see my Savior’s face, And praise Him for His sovereign grace. -TUNE TO "SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER" LM/DOUBLE WORDS BY JIM BYRD

Holy, Merciful & Gracious Mighty God!

"For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto them that call upon Thee." -Psalm 86:5 [KJV]   The sinner who has saving faith believes that there is a fullness of salvation in Christ for poor sinners "Wherefore HE is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by HIM..." (Hebrews 7:25). In the word of the Gospel Christ is held forth as an able Saviour - able to save men from their sins and from the wrath of God. His merit is a sufficient shield against the tempest of wrath which incensed justice is ready to exact against transgressors. The sinner who has saving faith knows that the righteousness Christ fulfilled as the condition of the Covenant of Grace is so valuable in itself, and in the eyes of the Father, that it is sufficient to procure justification, sanctification, and all other saving benefits to sinners who in themselves deserve death and damnation. So they are happy who are in Him. They shall never perish but h

Amazing Grace

  " Unto the Lord this sinner owed A debt I could not pay; My sins were such an awful load, But Christ put them away. His blood has washed away my shame, And satisfaction made; O bless the dear Redeemer’s name, My ransom price is paid. Salvation unto Christ I owe, O what a gracious Friend; He washed and made me white as snow, On Him my hopes depend. Someday in heav’n I’ll sing His praise, With all the ransomed throng; And joyfully my voice I’ll raise, To sing redemption’s song." -Tune: "Amazing Grace"

LET US PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS

"Let us praise the name of Jesus, Prophet, Priest and sovereign King; To Him render adoration, Laud and homage to Him bring. Let us praise the name of Jesus, God Incarnate from above; Came to save His chosen people, Sent by God in cov’nant love.   Let us praise the name of Jesus, Who upon Mount Calvary; Shed His blood and sealed our pardon, Died from sin to set us free. Let us praise the name of Jesus, Risen, conquering, gracious Friend; Advocate and Mediator, All our hopes on Him depend.   Let us praise the name of Jesus, For He brought us to His fold; Come exalt His Name and worship, May the Savior be extolled. Let us praise the name of Jesus, Till we see Him face to face; Then throughout the endless ages, Praise Him for His love and grace." -TUNE TO "LOVE DIVINE" 8.7.8.7. DOUBLE WORDS BY JIM BYRD
