Salvation: What A Great Word!

What a great word that word “salvation” is! It includes the cleansing of our conscience from all past guilt, the delivery of our soul from all those propensities to evil which now so strongly predominate in us; it takes in, in fact, the undoing of all that Adam did. Salvation is the total restoration of …

What is a Besetting Sin?

You know that we all have our besetments, says one. What do you mean by that? Some sin that you often fall into? Do you call that a besetting sin? If I were to walk tonight across Clapham Common, and half-a-dozen men stopped me, I should say that I was beset; but if at an …

God Says They Are True

I believe certain doctrines because God says they are true; and the only authority I have for their truth is the Word of God. I receive such and such doctrines, not because I can prove them to be compatible with reason, not because my judgment accepts them, but because God says they are true. Now, …

Praise be to God (Laus Deo)

Meditate, dear friends, upon the whole range of God’s works in Creation and Providence. There was a period when God dwelt alone — and creatures were not. In that time before all time, when there was no day but “The Ancient of Days,” when matter and created mind were alike unborn, and even space was …

Preach The Word!

Take care, oh preacher, that you do not blunt the word, or try to cover over its edge; for that would be treason to the Lord who made it to be sharp and cutting. There is much about the true gospel which offends, and it should be our desire never to tamper with it, or …

Is Your Bible Moldy?

Perhaps there is no book more neglected in these days than the Bible. I do verily believe there are more moldy Bibles in this world than there are of any sort of neglected books. We have stillborn books in abundance; we have innumerable books which never see any circulation except the circulation of the butter …

Teaching The Word of God

Psalm 119:27Make me understand the way of Your precepts,So I will meditate on Your wonders. Our student’s prayer asks a great gift when he says, “Make me to understand.” This is something more than, “Make me to know.” He had said just before, “Teach me your statutes.” Every Christian needs this teaching for his own …

Fellowship With Christ

What the sun is to the day, what the moon is to the night, what the dew is to the flower, such is Jesus Christ to us. What bread is to the hungry, clothes to the naked, the shadow of a great rock to the traveler in a weary land, such is Jesus Christ to …

The Consequences of Sin

So with us. Many a sin which the believer has committed God has pardoned, but the consequences come, all the same, you may have the guilt forgiven but you cannot undo the sin, there it remains, and our children and our children’s children may have to smart for sins which God has forgiven to us. …

Did You Lose Christ?

Tell me where you lost the company of Christ, and I will tell you the most likely place for you to find him again. Did you lose the company of Christ by forgetting prayer, and becoming slack in your devotion? Have you lost Christ in the closet? Then you will find him there. Did you …
