Faithful Stewardship

Apr 14 IT is well that our dear brethren should make a right account of us. Paul says, in the verse preceding our text, “Let a man so account of us,” for there are some who make a wrong reckoning as to the ministers of the gospel. Some go to an extreme, for they glory in men. One glories in Paul, who is so deep in doctrine; another in Cephas, who is...

1 Corinthians 4:2

The Determination of Christ to Suffer for His People

Dec 15 OUR Saviour, before he was nailed to the cross, and on the cross, several times had drinks of different sorts offered to him.

Titus 1:4

Cheering Words

Dec 22 THE Saviour was about to leave his disciples, and this was the hardest trial which they had ever experienced. As there could be no trial to them like the loss of the Saviour’s presence, it was at this time Jesus brought forth his richest consolation.
