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 …

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 …

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 …

The New Heart

God does not promise that He will improve our nature, or that He will mend our broken hearts. No- the promise is that He will give us ‘new’ hearts and right spirits. Human nature is too far gone ever to be mended. It is not a house which is a little out of repair, with …
