Glory To God

“Let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.”—Psalm 72:19 There was a time when every star was bright; when all space was filled with loveliness, when holiness, purity, and happiness, were like a robe which mantled the entire creation. This world itself was once fair and lovely—so fair and lovely that …

God’s Motive In Creation

“And all the trees of the field shall know that I, Jehovah, have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish. I, Jehovah, have spoken and have done it.”—Ezekiel 17:29 Can your minds fly back to the time when …

Grace and the Substitutionary Work of Jesus

“But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.” Acts 15:11 Peter would give no countenance to such false prophets! No, he would faithfully testify that man is dead in sin, and life’s a gift–that man is lost–utterly fallen and undone. He speaks in his …

Christian Honesty

Every Christian, it seems to me, should be more scrupulous than other men in his dealings. He must never swerve from the path of integrity. He should never say, “It is the custom: it is perfectly understood in the trade.” Let the Christian remember that custom cannot sanction wrong, and that its being “understood” is …

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 …

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 …

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 …

What is Selfishness?

Who are you that everything should happen just as you wish? Should the weather be fine simply because you want it to be so when a thousand fields are gasping for rain? Should you have the channels of trade turned in your direction when, if that were the case, scores of others would be beggared? …

For The Glory Of God

Never is life more ennobled than when we do all things as unto God. This makes drudgery sublime and links the poorest menial with the brightest angel. Seraphs serve God in heaven, and you and I may serve him in the pulpit or in the kitchen, and be as accepted as they are. Brethren, Christian …

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 …
