Proverbs 15: 21: Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.




    There can be no doubt that the scriptures declare that salvation is by grace.  That means that salvation is by grace without any works of the law done by the sinner.  As boldly and as clearly as I possibly can, I tell you that salvation is by grace and not by your works of the law.

    But this is also true: sinners are saved by the works of the law.  God does not set His holy law aside when He saves His people.  The law must be satisfied.  Sinners are saved by Christ’s obedience to the law.  God’s elect are saved through Christ’s works of the law.  In this way God is both just and justifier; both just and gracious.  Salvation by grace through Christ’s work is the only salvation that is both just and gracious.

Satan never more transforms himself into an angel of light than when he sets up for a preacher of holiness in opposition to the doctrine of grace; nor do his ministers ever more act the same part than when under the guise of ministers of righteousness, or preachers of good works, they endeavor to undermine and sap the foundation of gospel-doctrine.

On Thursday, our nation will celebrate a day of Thanksgiving. It will be a day of joy and feasting. Most of you will be with your families. Your children and grandchildren will be home. All over the country, our nation will show some gratitude to God for his providential mercies. We will thank him for our liberty, prosperity, and peace. Certainly, we should do so. God’s goodness toward us as a nation is abundant. Even with all of her problems, America is still the happiest and most prosperous land in the world.


     But, my brothers and sisters, we are citizens of a heavenly kingdom. And we have greater reason than anyone to give thanks to our God. Let us rejoice and give thanks for our spiritual blessings in Christ more than we do for our outward prosperity. Give thanks unto God for the person of Christ and his rich grace. Give thanks unto the Lord for his covenant mercy. Give thanks unto your God for your full salvation by Christ. Give thanks unto the Lord for the fact that he has given you a place to worship, where the gospel of Christ is loved and preached. Give thanks to our God for all things in providence – “For all things are yours;…..And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s” (1 Corinthians 3:21, 23).


     Do not let your thanksgiving be limited to a day. But in everything give thanks at all times. Thanksgiving is the opposite of murmuring and complaining. It is more than mere words. If we truly give thanks to God, we live before him in love, joy, and peace. Being confident of his goodness in Christ Jesus, we are content in all things. Thanksgiving is the joy of faith in Christ.   Don Fortner—from Bulletin 11/18/79




For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.”
– Romans 5:6 

God only saves the Un-People:

   The unprofitable

   The ungodly

   The unrighteous

   The undeserving                                                                            Darvin Pruitt



The nation is on edge” . . .  This is what some in the news media are telling us concerning the Coronavirus - "The nation is on edge." I don't know how many are on edge; I doubt there are very many comparatively speaking. What a freedom of heart it is to live in the faith that our Sovereign God rules all things. There is not a grain of sand outside of his control. Everything from Satan to kings to storms to viruses etc. are controlled by the One who calls Himself our God - "I will be their God and they shall be my people" (2 Cor.6:16). How could anyone who can truly say, "This God is my God" be on edge about anything? I know that is easily said. I know there are things that trouble us. I know we are sometime afraid. I know that sometimes our poor souls are like David when he complained, "Why art thou cast down O my soul?"   But then he gives the remedy for his cast down-ness, "Hope thou in God." Live in the exercise of faith and hope, and you can live in the freedom that your God in whom you believe and hope controls all things.    Bruce Crabtree






Ephesians 5:20: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;


It is good we have a day to remind our nation to be thankful.  But God’s saints give thanks always.  We thank God “for all things” because all is the gift of God. (Jn 3: 27) His unspeakable gift is his Son Christ.  It is in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that we give thanks because everything for which we thank God is declared in Christ’s name: JEHOVHAH Jireh—the LORD will provide; JEHOVAH Rapha—the LORD that healeth thee; JEHOVHAH Nissi—the LORD our banner; JEHOVAH Tzidkenu—the LORD our Righteousness; JEHOVAH Shalom—the LORD our peace (Judg 6: 24); JEHOVAH Shammah—the LORD is there (Eze 48: 35); JEHOVAH Ra-ah—the LORD our Shepherd (Ps 23).  “Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, WE THANK THEE, and praise thy glorious name.” (1 Chr 29: 11-13)
