The Meaning of Holiness: The Holiness of God with R.C. Sproul – Part 5

This is the fifth session of the series of sermons by R.C. Sproul on the holiness of God.

“And the four beasts had each of them six wings about Him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.”

Revelation 4:8 KJV

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

We must always think about the amazing faithfulness of God towards His rebellious, unfaithful, and sinful creatures. Christians of all people should be ever thanking the Lord for being faithful to us always.

22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

Lyrics

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father, there is no shadow of turning with thee; thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not; as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.
CHORUS
Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed thy hand hath provided, great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide; strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside
CHORUS

Thomas Chisholm & William M. Runyan

Hosanna!

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

— Matthew 21:9-11 KJV

Lyrics

Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord.
Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna!
To son of David!
Hosanna in highest.
Hosanna to the son of David.
Hosanna, this is Jesus!
Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord.
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna to the son of David.
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to the son of David.
Hosanna this is Jesus!
Hosanna!
Hosanna!
Hosanna!
In the highest!
Hosanna!
Hosanna!
Hosanna this is Jesus!

Amazing Grace

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 

– Romans 5:8 NKJV

– Lyrics –


Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come,
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

John Newton

Two Years of Blogging: A Special Thank You to You!

I’d like to say some thank-yous to those who have been so kind as to become friends with me and who are a big part of this blog.

First of all, I thank my God, the Lord Jesus Christ, for this blog, for the privilege of sharing the truth, and for all my blogging friends! Most of all, I thank God for saving me from all my sins by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus (John 3:16), who is the Lamb of God, the perfect sacrifice that takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29), to die on the cross for my sins, paying the full price for my sins, and for God the Holy Spirit who showed me my need for a Savior and gave me a new heart and life! As a depraved sinner, I still sin, but my only confidence that my sins are forgiven is in Jesus Christ, my Advocate with the Father (1 John 2:1)! All the glory be to our Triune God!

I thank you all, my friends, for your kindness in being an important part of this blog and for all the support you give me! I thank Lee Duigon, author of the Bell Mountain series, for recommending me to start a blog! Now my blog’s been a big part of my life and I want to continue to glorify God with it!

Thank you, God, for letting me have this blog for two years. May I use it for Your glory!

Facing Our Ancient Foe: Part 6: The Armor of God: Praying at All Times (Ephesians 6:18-20) – John MacArthur

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

– Ephesians 6:18-20 KJV

In Christ Alone

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

– Lyrics –


In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand:
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

How Deep the Father’s Love For Us

16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

– 1 John 3:16 KJV

– Lyrics –


How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss –
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart –
His wounds have paid my ransom.

Stuart Townend
