Are You

“Saved or Deceived”?

Some have estimated that as many as 90% of present-day church members

are lost, deceived by Satan and their own hearts about their true relationship

to God and eternal salvation. In this regard,

see 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, Jeremiah 17:9-10.

According to Matthew 7:21-23, there will be many preachers and

professing Christians who will hear these awful words from the lips

of the Lord Jesus Christ, "I never knew you: depart from me, ye

that work iniquity." Will you be one of them?

You are encouraged to Click Here to read a 5-part series

of heart-searching messages by W. R. Crews on the subject,

"Saved or Deceived?" May you be enabled by the

Spirit of the living God to know whether you are truly saved,

or religiously lost and deceived!

At age 82, John Newton (1725-1807)—English pastor and author

of the popular hymn, “Amazing Grace”—said,

“My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two things,

that I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Saviour.”

 

 

Bridling the Tongue

See James 3:1-12

 

How can we gain control of our tongues? Only by submitting our minds and hearts to Christ. We speak what we think. Therefore, if the Lord Jesus is to be magnified in the way we use our tongue, He must be magnified in the way we use our mind also. Paul writes of Christians “casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5). Paul knew that there could be no purity of speech apart from a genuine purification of our minds. The Lord Jesus also taught this truth when He said, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matthew 12:34). If our hearts are daily surrendered to the Lordship of Christ, we will be meditating upon His Word and cleansed by that Word (Psalm 119:9, Ephesians 5:25-27)—and as a result, we will seek to be a sympathetic encouragement to other believers, rather than participating in backbiting and gossip about others. See Ephesians 4:29.

The Centrality of “Christ Crucified”

in the Gospel Message

 

The Gospel is not truly preached to sinners unless the focus

is upon Christ crucified, His substitutionary

blood-shedding on Calvary's cross

 

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;

but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”

(1 Corinthians 1:18)

 

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence

of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.

For I determined not to know anything among you

except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

(1 Corinthians 2:1-2)
