Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

They Will Give an Account - a Word for the Civil Magistrate

"You will please to remember, Gentleman, that in this weighty affair, you do not act merely for yourselves - you act for the whole community - every member has an interest in the transaction.

"But above all, suffer me to remind you, that you act for God, and under His inspection, by whose providence, this trust is committed to you - and that you must one day give an account to Him whose eyes are a flame of fire, of the motives of your conduct."

An Election Sermon, Gad Hitchcock, Proverbs 29:2, Boston 1774
