The Doctrine of Election

Now, you that do not believe in the Doctrine of Election, but kick at it and bite your lips at the mention of it, listen to this! God gave fallen angels no Savior, no Gospel, no space for repentance–yet He gives these to men–why is this? What reason was there? Can you conceive one? Why …

We Need Solitude

Modern civilization is so complex as to make the devotional life all but impossible. It wears us out by multiplying distractions and beats us down by destroying our solitude, where otherwise we might drink and renew our strength before going out to face the world again. “The thoughtful soul to solitude retires,” said the poet …

Providence Is God At Work

“There is nothing too hard for You!” Jeremiah 32:17 There is nothing too hard for God to EFFECT… I know that You can do everything. Is anything too hard for Me, says the Lord? He does according to His will among the armies of Heaven, and the inhabitants of the earth. He works all things …

Popular Christianity

Popular Judaism slew the prophets and crucified Christ. Popular Christianity killed the Reformers, jailed the Quakers and drove John Wesley into the streets. When it comes to religion, the crowds are always wrong. At any time there are a few who see, and the rest are blinded. To stand by the truth of God against …

The Hope Of Our Calling Is…

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with …

When other charmers have failed to charm, many dull, unsusceptible ears have …

God’s True Church

This is a profound introduction to the church from the lips of our Lord. It sums up so many of the critical realities that define the church. On every first day of the week since the day that Jesus rose from the dead over two thousand years ago, believers have gathered together to celebrate His …

The Mercy Of God

“I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever!” Psalm 52:8 Meditate a little on the mercy of God. It is tender mercy. With gentle, loving touch, He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. He is as gracious in the manner of His mercy — as in the matter of it. It is great mercy. There is nothing little in God; His …

God Is Sovereign

“For the Lord Almighty has purposed — and who can thwart Him?  His hand is stretched out — and who can turn it back?” Isaiah 14:27  To say that God is sovereign, is to declare that He is the Almighty, the Possessor of all power in Heaven and earth — so that none can . . .  …

Bring Books!

When you come bring the cloak which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments. 2 Timothy 4:13 If he will speak without premeditation or pretend to do so, and never produce what they call a dish of dead men’s brains–oh, that is the preacher! How rebuked are they by the …
