In addition to the most basic benefit, the saving impact of the gospel, God produces other elements of fruitfulness: thanksgiving, joy, confidence, mutual affections, and shared grace.

"There is no attribute of God more comforting to his children than the doctrine of Divine Sovereignty. Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe troubles, they believe that Sovereignty hath ordained their afflictions, that Sovereignty overrules them, and that Sovereignty will sanctify them all.

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... We will be concluding our study of the book of Galatians. The book closes in consistent fashion with its entire content—glorying in the cross of Jesus Christ.
