“Of his fullness have we all received, and GRACE FOR GRACE.” — In Christ we have received, from his boundless fulness, grace because of grace.


·         Redeeming grace because of electing grace!

·         Regenerating grace because of redeeming grace!

·         Sanctifying grace because of regenerating grace!

·         Believing grace because of sanctifying grace!

·         Persevering grace because of preserving grace!

·         Grace in time because of grace in eternity!

·         Experimental grace because of covenant grace!

·         Pardoning grace because of promised grace!

·         Imparted grace because of imputed grace!

·         Everlasting grace because of everlasting grace!

·         The fulness of grace because of the freeness of grace!

·         Heaps of grace upon heaps of grace!


“Of his fullness have we all received, and grace for grace.” Blessed be his name forever!  Don Fortner




Some years ago I was preaching the gospel to a congregation in Greenup Ky. It was a small group and in that group was a man in a wheel chair. He said to me after preaching a message that he believed that gospel. He said that he had been listening to my pastor Henry Mahan and loved that message that he preached. After preaching there for about five weeks, I received a phone call on a Saturday night telling me that the gentleman in the wheel chair had passed away and that I did not need to come back to preach anymore because they did not believe the gospel that I preached. What a blessing it was to me to be used of God to feed one of His sheep before taking him home and what a curse it was to them who rejected it. There are no accidental meetings with the gospel. 2Co 2:15-16  For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?  John Chapman






Genesis 46: 33: And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation? 34: That ye shall say, Thy servants’ trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.


Joseph taught his brethren to confess to Pharaoh that they were shepherds because every shepherd is an abomination to Pharaoh.  Upon this confession Pharaoh gave them the king’s own best land, Goshen, which means “to draw near.” Why did God bring to pass this strange providence? Remember the Lord’s parable of the Pharisee and the publican? The publican confessed to God that he was a sinner and God justified him (Lu 18: 13-14)  Christ teaches his brethren to confess that we are an abomination to God in need of Christ’s righteousness. Upon that confession God makes us dwell in God’s own best land, Christ Jesus, in whom we draw near to holy God fully accepted.  Sinner do not let your sin make you linger.  The best land is only for the abominable.



“If my salvation was so difficult to accomplish that it necessitated the death of Christ, then all my works, all my righteousness of the Law, is good for nothing. How can I buy for a penny what cost a million dollars?” Martin Luther




“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”
John 10:27

Jesus Christ, that great shepherd of the sheep, says: “I know them.” Child of God, wherever you are at present, whatever you might be passing through at this moment, remember this: your Savior knows. Christ’s sheep are never out of his hands and never out of his heart. He does not appear, declaring his love to his sheep, and then tell them that he will let them perish and not interfere with their will. Never. “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”

– Yes, what sweet comfort to remember that “My Savior knows.” An aged believer, on his death bed, in and out of consciousness, was asked the cause of his great peace. He answered, “When I am able to think, I think of Jesus; and when I am unable to think of him, I know he is thinking of me.” Christ will seek, find, and save his sheep in time, and bring them each to be with him in eternity. There will never be a time when Christ will not say: “I know them.”

Psalm 44: 8: In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.


True worship is giving God all the glory for all our salvation.  This is the difference in false and true worship. False worship boasts in that vile thing called “self.”  True worship boasts in God, giving all praise to his name forever.
