Wake Up! Wake Up!

Sep 10

Wake Up! Wake Up!   “That, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”— Romans xiii. 11.   THIS exhortation, as you will readily perceive, is not addressed to the ungodly. These words are not spoken to those who are dead in sin, but …

The Best Beloved

Mar 22

The Best Beloved   “Yea, he is altogether lovely.”— Solomon’s Song v. 16.   No words can ever express the gratitude we owe to Him who loved us even when we were dead in trespasses and sins: the love of Jesus is unutterably precious and worthy of daily praise. No songs can ever fitly celebrate the triumphs of that …

A Clear Conscience

Mar 13

A Clear Conscience   “Then shall I not he ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.” — Psalm cxix. 6.   ANY attempt to keep the law of God with the view of being saved thereby is sure to end in failure. So contrary is it to the express warnings of the divine Lawgiver, and so much …

A Distinction with a Difference

Jan 01

A Distinction with a Difference   “And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this?”— Luke i. 18. “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be?”— Luke i. 34.   ZACHARIAS and the Virgin Mary were both very dear to God, and therefore highly honoured and greatly favoured.

A Sacred Solo

Jan 01

A Sacred Solo   “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.”— Psalm xxviii. 7.   THIS passage has, to my mind, a peculiar charm. I do not know whether it breaks on your ear with like …

“Lead Us Not Into Temptation”

Jan 01

"Lead Us Not Into Temptation"   “Lead us not into temptation.” — Matthew vi. 13   LOOKING over a book of addresses to young people the other day, I met with the outline of a discourse which struck me as being a perfect gem. I will give it to you. The text is the Lord’s prayer, and the exposition …

Matthew:6:13

A Great Bargain

Jan 01

A Great Bargain   “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”— Matthew xiii. 45, 46.   A MERCHANTMAN endeavours to trade so as to make a profit. Whether he deals in pearls …

Jan 01

FAMILY REFORMATION; OR, JACOB’S SECOND VISIT TO BETHEL.   “And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there.” — Genesis xxxv. 1.   THERE are critical times in most families: times when much decision of character will be needed on the part of the father to guide things aright. They say there is a skeleton in every …
