TONIGHT, we go back to basics - the very basics:

One of the most essential doctrines of the True Christian faith is the doctrine of Grace.  While recognized and understood (to varying degrees) by all Christian denominations, it hardly ever receives the treatment and attention it is due in churches the world over.

It is God's IRRESISTIBLE GRACE that keeps us forever His.  It is because of His Grace that we can call ourselves His Children.  Without God's Irresistible Grace, the words "Eternal Life" mean nothing!

To be a Christian is, implicitly and explicitly, to be aware of one's own sinful disposition and spiritual poverty.  When we become Christians, this nature does not just "go away;" indeed, we all battle daily (if we are to be honest) against the flesh and sinful nature.  Some Christians may even come to question their own Salvation, and often the reason for the discouragement is they haven't understood the nature and depth of God's Grace.

It is our fervent prayer that this episode will be a Blessing to anyone who needs encouragement and reassurance.
