Preaching Cheap Grace – Vance Havner

Preaching Cheap Grace – Vance Havner

We have suffered from the preaching of cheap grace. Grace is free, but it is not cheap. People will take anything that is free, but they are not interested in discipleship. They will take Christ as Savior but not as Lord.

He Became a Curse For Us – Richard Sibbes

The great desire of the converted – Joseph Alleine

The great desire of the converted – Joseph Alleine

Before conversion, the man made light of Christ, minded his farm, friends, merchandise, more than Christ; now, Christ is to him as his necessary food, his daily bread, the life of his heart, the staff of his life. His great desire is, that Christ may be magnified in him.

from A Sure Guide to Heaven, 1671

Confess Our Sins – Alan Redpath

It’s Satan’s delight to tell me that once he’s got me, he will keep me. But at that moment I can go back to God. And I know that if I confess my sins, God is faithful and just to forgive me.
