Unmitigated Prosperity

Feb 2 You know that the whole versa says, “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.” The last words form our text: “The pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.”

Isaiah 53:10

Spiritual Sight and Eternal Life

Jun 3 IT is very noticeable, in this verse, and in many other parts of the New Testament, what a sharp line of demarcation the Lord draws between his people and the world: “The world seeth me no more; but ye see me.” We have the same truth taught in John’s first Epistle: “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in the wicked one.” It is quite evident that our Lord kept prominent in...

Where are the Nine?

Feb 2 THE whole narrative connected with the test is worthy of your careful reading. There were ten men, lepers, who, according to the old proverb that “birds of a feather flock together,” had made a company, and seem to have lived in greater amity through kinship of suffering than they would have done had they been healthy and competent to share the fragrance of each other’s joys. Mutual woe may have...

Here you have all necessary doctrines to feed upon, and luxurious truths with which to satisfy your soul. One might well have been willing to be shut up as a prisoner in paradise, and one might well be content to be shut up to this one chapter, and never to be...

The Saints’ Love to God

Jun 27 Do we, if we are called the saints of the Lord, need to be exhorted to love him? If we do, shame upon us! And we do, I am quite sure; so let us be ashamed and confounded that it should ever be needful to urge us to love our Lord. Why, after he has done so much for us, and manifested such wondrous love to such unworthy ones as...

God’s Love to the Saints

Jul 11 TRUE love cannot long be dormant. It is like fire, of an active nature; it must, be at work. Love longs for expression; it cannot be dumb. Command it to be without expression, and you command it not to live. And true love is not satisfied with expressing itself in words. It does use words, but it is painfully conscious of their feebleness, for the full meaning of love is...
