Think of the cross, the nails, the open wounds, the anguish of His soul

(Albert Barnes, 1798-1870)

"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18

I entreat you to devote one solemn hour of thought to a crucified Savior--a Savior expiring in the bitterest agony.

Think of the cross, the nails, the open wounds, the anguish of His soul.

Think how the Son of God became a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, that you might live in Heaven forever.

Think as you lie down upon your bed to rest, how your Savior was lifted up from the earth to die.

Think amid your plans and anticipations of future gaiety, what the redemption of your soul has cost, and how the dying Savior would wish you to act. His wounds plead that you will live for better things.

"He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness" 1 Peter 2:24

“Hence that dread and amazement with which as Scripture uniformly relates holy men were struck and overwhelmed whenever they beheld the presence of God. Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance until they have.” - John Calvin

Thu Sep 03, 2020 12:20 AM Evangelism [by Tom]
I am running into more and more Reformed Presbyterians who say that the average Christian should not be doing evangelism. They believe it should be left up to those who are gifted in evangelism and the average Christian should just invite people to Church.
First of all, up until recently I have never heard such talk.

However, I am wondering if this kind of thought is common among Reformed Presbyterians?

Wed Sep 02, 2020 12:28 AM Article 17 of the Canons of Dordt [by Tom]
I have a question concerning article 17 of the Canons of Dordt.

Quote
Article 17. Since we are to judge of the will of God from his Word, which testifies that the children of believers are holy, not by nature, but in virtue of the covenant of grace, in which they, together with the parents, are comprehended, godly parents have no reason to doubt of the election and salvation of their children, whom it pleaseth God to call out of this life in their infancy.


It appears that this is saying that the children who die in infancy of godly parents by implication are elect and saved.

Do I understand this properly?

Tue Sep 01, 2020 11:03 AM "Growth in Grace" by Archibald Alexander [by Pilgrim]
It is a biblical axiom that those who profess to have been united to the LORD Christ by a living faith with possess and live by a lively faith. Their lives will be a constant putting off the 'old man' and a putting on the 'new man'; being transformed into the image of Christ himself (Eph 2:10; 4:23-24; Col 3:10; 1Pet 1:14-15).

Archibald Alexander (1772-1851), the first president of the newly established Princeton Seminary, is the author of this month's Article of the Month. His subject is the Christian's "Growth in Grace". He careful sets out "We shall here present some practical directions how to grow in grace and make progress in piety." And then he deals with those things which can and often do impede growth in grace and thus make the necessary changes in our life to get back on the track of progressing in our sanctification, all of which depends upon the work of the Spirit in us (Phil 2:12,13). So, if you have a perfect Christian life then this article will be of no use to you. But if you are like most who have been delivered from darkness and brought to the light of Christ Jesus through the regeneration of your corrupt and spiritually dead soul, this article will be of great value to you in your progression in grace and holiness.

Read this month's article now by clicking here: Growth in Grace.

And, as always, you can read it later at your leisure by visiting The Highway homepage and clicking on the "Article of the Month" logo where you will see this month's article and all past articles.

In His service and grace,
