                 FOOD FOR THOUGHT

In whom we have boldness and access with confidence

by the faith of him.    Ephesians 3:12


“What is preaching?  It is expounding the Scriptures, testifying of our experience of grace in the kingdom of God and persuading sinners to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.  ‘And when they had appointed him (Paul) a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.’ (Acts 28:23).”

                                                      Pastor Don Fortner

  “Am I to bring no works, no faith (not even faith)?  NO – your faith brings you.  Faith leaves all works behind.  It relies on God’s gracious promises. It pleads God’s rich mercy in Christ, to poor perishing sinners.”                                                                  William Mason

“The Gospel of God’s grace in Christ Jesus is not a thing to be proved, but truth to be believed.  It is not submitted to our reasoning powers as a subject for critical examination.  The Gospel is a MESSAGE FROM GOD, addressed to the conscience, feelings, and affections.  For this reason, men fond of argument and proving everything by strictly logical deduction generally make very poor preachers.  In the Scriptures, God does not argue, He proclaims!”       

J. C. Philpot

“Let us ever seek grace to live by the rule of the gospel we preach, honoring God in all things; but do not imagine that you can preach the gospel by the way you live. — You can only preach the gospel by declaring it.”                                                      Pastor Don Fortner
