The Time is Short

Feb 17

The Time is Short     “The time is short.” — 1 Corinthians vii. 29.   *“This date is an approximation of when this sermon was delivered.”   THE text does not say that time is short. That would have been a true statement. Compared with eternity, time, at the very longest, is but as a pin’s point. But note what the …

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 …

Christ the Conqueror of Satan   “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”— Genesis iii. 15.   THIS is the first gospel sermon that was ever delivered upon the surface of this earth.

The Best Strengthening Medicine

Jun 21

The Best Strengthening Medicine   “Out of weakness were made strong.”— Hebrews xi. 34.   THOSE who out of weakness were made strong are written among the heroes of faith, and are by no means the least of them. Believers “quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong.” Who shall …

Hebrews:11:34

Am I a Sea, or a Whale?

May 31

Am I a Sea, or a Whale?   “Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over me?”— Job vii. 17.   JOB was in great pain when he thus bitterly complained. These moans came from him when his skin was broken and had become loathsome, and he sat upon a dunghill and scraped himself …

The Shining of the Face of Moses

May 18

The Shining of the Face of Moses   “And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. And when Aaron and all …

Exodus:34:29-35

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 …

Song of Songs:5:16

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 …
