GOOD NEWS

 Weekend Gospel message to follow for All Hands (28-30MAY21)


Heads-Up --- Please find enclosed encouragement in SO GREAT SALVATION by the perfect and finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ in saving poor, needy and wretched sinners by His sovereign free grace -God's unmerited favor- from our sins and from Hell:

DELIVERANCE FROM ETERNAL RUIN

"The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: the grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass." -Isaiah 40:6-7 [KJV]

Unless the Lord is pleased to teach us and reveal to us what we are by nature (Ephesians 2:1-3), we will never see our need for Christ and the gospel of His free grace (Romans 3:24). We will never understand our need of Jesus Christ and His great salvation, unless the Holy Spirit is pleased to move upon our heart (John 6:44-45).

Only when He reveals unto us our sinful condition, will we seek His salvation in Christ Jesus the Lord (1 Timothy 1:12). Only when He speaks to us about our righteousness as being filthy rags, will we seek His righteousness that is performed and provided freely by His grace (1 Corinthians 1:30). Only when God reveals to us our total ruin, will we seek redemption through the spotless blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:7). 

Only when God is pleased to show us how unworthy we are, will we seek Him who is Worthy (Revelation 5:12). Lord, make us to know and see what our need is, so by Thy Spirit and grace we can seek Thy mercy where it can be found (Philippians 3:9; 4:19).
