The Gospel’s Compelling Uniqueness

CH-September 8, 2017     By Jared Wilson   It is impossible to be ambivalent about Jesus. He said so Himself (Matt. 12:30).

Christ, All in All

CH-September 8, 2017     by Thomas Watson   All good things are transmitted and conveyed to us, through Christ. As our rich commodities, such as jewels and spices, come to us by the sea — so all heavenly blessings sail to us through the Red Sea of Christ’s blood! Christ is that spiritual pipe…
