Four facts of Scripture
by Don Fortner
Here are the four facts revealed in Holy Scripture which I most
cherish. Those four, blessed, gospel truths are the pillars of our faith,
the joy of our hearts, the comfort of our souls, and the constant
themes of our songs in worship and of the message we preach.
1. The God we worship and serve, our Heavenly Father
is absolutely sovereign in all things - (Dan. 4:34-37).
2. The Lord Jesus Christ, God's dear Son, our Savior has
effectually redeemed his people from all sin - (Gal. 3:13).
3. Salvation is by grace alone through faith in Christ - (Eph. 2:8-9).
4. And the Lord our God sovereignly rules, controls, and disposes
of all things in providence according to His own wise and holy will -
(Isa.46:9-13; Rom. 8:28; 11:36; II Cor. 5:18).
