Gospel of Grace Ministries is an outreach of Gospel of Grace Church located in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. This web site is just one of their many efforts to proclaim, explain, defend and spread the truth of the God's gospel of free and sovereign grace.
We are gathering what we consider the best, the clearest and the most consistent, Christ-centered, sovereign grace material as possible. The goal is to have a "one-stop" site where most all your study needs are met. Of course, we will have some help with off-site links too.
We have text, audio, video, blog and whatever other user-friendly means available to communicate the glorious gospel of Christ. We want to supply the needs for various levels and stages that people find themselves in their growth in the faith. We prayerfully continue to assemble our site in such a way as to not scare off the beginner or bore the scholar. In either case clarity is the goal.
If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement please feel free to contact us. Thanks for your participation. Do not forget to bookmark us and visit often.

The Spirit Testifies of Christ
George Smeaton (from his book Christ's Doctrine of The Atonement
We find the Lord affirming, in a variety of passages, that it was He who, by His vicarious sacrifice, obtained for his elect the great gift of the Holy Spirit... Whatever was graciously conferred on the elect through Jesus Christ was wanting in our natural condition...The Holy Spirit acted as inspiration in the case of Spirit-filled men, such as Moses, the Judges, David and the prophets generally. But that preparatory work of the Spirit, as well as the personal enjoyment of forgiveness, was owing to the atonement, which had a retrospective as well as a prospective efficacy, and thus had an influence at all times. "When the Spirit is come, He shall convince of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment." By righteousness, He intimates not the justice of His cause but the righteousness which He worked out in His atoning death for His elect people.
