God With Us

December 26, 1875

God With Us   “They shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” — Matthew i. 23.   THOSE words, “being interpreted,” salute my ear with much sweetness. Why should the word “Emmanuel” in the Hebrew, be interpreted at all? Was it not to show that it has reference to us Gentiles, and therefore it …

Matthew:1:23

The Man of One Subject

October 31, 1875

The Man of One Subject   “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” — 1 Corinthians ii. 2.   PAUL was a very determined man, and whatever he undertook he carried out with all his heart.

1 Corinthians:2:2

Sow to Yourselves

October 24, 1875

Sow to Yourselves   “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy.” — Hosea x. 12.   HUSBANDMEN are now devoting their attention to putting the seed into the ground. They know right well that without sowing in the present they cannot expect a reaping in the future. Seed-time has many lessons; that which we shall learn this morning …

Hosea:10:12

The Unbroken Line of True Nobles

October 17, 1875

The Unbroken Line of True Nobles   “Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.”— Psalm xlv. 16.   WERE you ever perplexed by being drawn with almost equal force in two directions? I have been so. There is a bond which reaches from the cemetery which holds me very …

Psalms:45:16

The Hand of God in the History of a Man

October 10, 1875

The Hand of God in the History of a Man   “Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?” — Job vii. 1.   I WAS settling myself down yesterday to meditate upon the Word of God, and to prepare my mind to preach the gospel …

Love to Jesus the Great Test   “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.” — John viii. 42.   THE order of salvation is, first we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and we obtain a …

The Old Man’s Sermon

September 26, 1875

The Old Man's Sermon   “O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.” — Psalm lxxi. …

Psalms:71:17-18

How to Converse with God

September 19, 1875

How to Converse with God   “Then call thou, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer thou me.”— Job xiii. 22.   JOB might well have been driven frantic by his miserable comforters; it is wonderful that he did not express himself far more bitterly than he did. Surely Satan found better instruments for his work …

Job:13:22

Jesus in Our Midst

September 12, 1875

Jesus in Our Midst   “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.” — John xx. 19.   WE do not wonder that when …
