One Gospel?

Behold, All Things Are Become New

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  2 Corinthians 5:17 So often we pronounce something as “new”, yet it really isn’t. A new year is just another year with one digit difference. In fact, a new year makes us ...

Unto Us A Child Is Born

The meanest estate wasn't in His fragility as a "babe, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger" (Luk. 2:16), but in the Son of God, made sin, wrapped in sins swaddling iniquity and deaths grip, hanging on the Cross of Calvary.
