The Gospel & The Promise A.W. Tozer: Grace is the good pleasure of God that inclines Him to bestow benefits upon the undeserving. Its use to us sinful men is to save us and make us sit together in heavenly places to demonstrate to the ages the exceeding riches of God’s kindness to us in … [Read More...] Galatians 3:15-20

The Gospel & The Curse Charles Haddon Spurgeon: Away with your accursed and idolatrous dependence upon yourself; Christ has finished salvation-work, altogether finished it. Hold not up your rags in competition with his fair white linen: Christ has borne the curse; bring not your pitiful penances to mingle with the precious fountain flowing with his … [Read More...] Galatians 3:7-14

The Gospel & The Spirit Harry Ironside: If Christ has actually given Himself for me it is because it was impossible for me to do one thing to save myself. Because I could not fit myself for the presence of God, because I could not cleanse my heart from sin, because no work of righteousness … [Read More...] Galatians 3:1-6

The Gospel & New Life John Calvin: True faith always expresses itself by humility. It makes a man willing to count himself nothing, while attributing all praise to God. It would seem strange if a believer, who is a mere mortal, were to praise himself because Jesus Christ lives in him. Galatians 2:15-21 We ourselves … [Read More...] Galatians 2:15-21

It's hard to imagine, but we see it. Intentional sabotage. Right now we have a woman at Naomi's House who is testing us. How far can she push the boundaries before we will kick her out? The very fact that she believes we would kick anyone out shows us exactly where and why she needs … [Read More...] Intentional Sabotage?

The Gospel & Hypocrisy Martin Luther: Paul reproved Peter for no trifle, but for the chief article of Christian doctrine, which Peter's hypocrisy had endangered. No one except Paul had his eyes open. Consequently it was his duty to reprove Peter and his followers for swerving from the truth of the Gospel. It was no … [Read More...] Galatians 2:11-16

The Gospel & the Apostles Charles Haddon Spurgeon: There are many points and particulars in which the gospel is offensive to human nature, and revolting to the pride of the creature. It was not intended to please man. How can we attribute such a purpose to God? Why should he devise a gospel to suit … [Read More...] Galatians 2:1-10

In 2019, we continue to see the devastating effects of human trafficking across Chicagoland.  In order to heal, women need trauma-informed care that addresses all aspects of their injuries. As one resident said, without the resources she received while at Naomi's House, she’s confident she would be dead.   So far, 2019 has been a … [Read More...] Naomi’s House Spring 2019 Report

The Gospel & the Apostle John Stott: As he asserted the divine origin of his apostolic commission, so now he asserts the divine origin of his apostolic gospel. Neither his mission nor his message was derived from man; both came to him direct from God and Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:11-24 For I would have you … [Read More...] Galatians 1:11-24
