The Christian’s Heaviness and Rejoicing

November 7, 1858

The Christian's Heaviness and Rejoicing   "Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations."—1 Peter 1:6        This verse to a worldly man looks amazingly like a contradiction; and even to a Christian man, when he understands it best, it will still be a paradox.

Declension from First Love   "Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love."—Revelation 2:4        IT IS A GREAT THING to have as much said in our commendation as was said concerning the church at Ephesus.

His Name—Wonderful!   "His name shall be called Wonderful."—Isaiah 9:6        One evening last week I stood by the sea-shore when the storm was raging.

An Appeal to Sinners

September 14, 1858

An Appeal To Sinners   "This man receiveth sinners."—Luke 15:2        It was a singular group which had gathered round our Saviour, when these words were uttered; for we are told by the evangelist—"Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him."
