I JOHN 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

1. SCRIPTURES ARE STILL PROFITABLE (2 TIM.3:16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2. SALVATION IS STILL BY GRACE. (EPH.2:8,9) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

3. SURRENDER IS STILL THE PREREQUISITE FOR SERVICE. (ROM.12:1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

4. SERVICE IS STILL THE PATHWAY TO JOY. (JN.15:10,11) If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

5. STUDY IS STILL THE SOURCE OF GOD’S APPROVEL. (2 TIM.2:15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

6. SUPPLICATION IS STILL THE SOURCE OF POWER. (Jer 33:3) Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

7. SOULWINNING IS STILL THE MAIN BUSINESS OF THE CHURCH. (Pr 11:30) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
