Thy Redeemer

Oct 4      And why does it say, "and thy Redeemer?" What was the use of appending the Redeemers name to this precious exhortation? By God's help it shall be the business of this evening to show why there is a peculiar blessedness in the fact that God hath not only said, "I will help thee, saith the Lord," but has added, "and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel."  ...

Isaiah 41:14

Fear Not

Oct 4      I shall speak this morning to those that are discouraged, depressed in spirit, and sore troubled in the Christian life. There are certain nights of exceeding great darkness, through which the spirit has to grope in much pain and misery, and during which much of the comfort of the Word is particularly needed. Those seasons occur in this manner. Frequently they occur at the outset of a religious...

Isaiah 41:14

Our Heavenly Father’s Pity

Sep 30 WHAT a blow this is for our pride! Then, God’s children are pitiable objects; notwithstanding that he hath crowned them with glory and honour; hath given them perfection in Christ Jesus; hath breathed into them the breath of spiritual life; hath set their feet upon a rock, and established their goings; yet they are, and they ever will be, so long as they are here below, pitiable objects. It is...

Psalm 103:13

The Mysteries of the Brazen Serpent

Sep 27      We are told by wise men that all languages are based upon figures, that the speech of men who are uncivilized is mainly composed of figures; and that indeed the language of the most civilized, when cleaved so as to bring it to its natural foundation, is based upon a set of metaphors perceived by the mind, and then used in language. This much I know, that when...

John 3:14

Things that Accompany Salvation

Sep 20      I am not quite certain that my text will warrant all I shall say upon it this day if read and understood in its connection. But I have taken the words rather by accommodation than otherwise, and shall make use of them as a kind of heading to the discourse which I hope to be enabled to deliver. I sat myself down, and I meditated on this subject—"Things...

Hebrews 6:9

The Condescension of Christ

Sep 13      The apostle, in this chapter, was endeavoring to stir up the Corinthians to liberality. He desired them to contribute something for those who were the poor of the flock, that he might be able to minister to their necessities. He tells them, that the churches of Macedonia, though very much poorer than the church at Corinth, had done even beyond their means for the relief of the Lords...

2 Corinthians 8:9

The Flight to Zoar

Sep 10 THE destruction of Sodom was, undoubtedly, a literal fact; and the record of it in Genesis is as true a piece of history as any event that is recorded by Tacitus or Josephus. But it was also intended to be a great parabolical lesson to us, — a lesson in the shape of a parable, by which we might receive both instruction and blessing. The Old Testament is a great...

Genesis 19:23

Preparation Necessary for the Communion

Sep 9 WE do not hold it right to admit all persons indiscriminately to the Lord’s supper; we believe the Lord’s table is the place of communion, and we would have none there with whom we cannot have true Christian fellowship. We can commune with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ, however different may be their views upon some points of doctrine. So long as we find it possible to...

1 Corinthians 11:28

India's Ills and England's Sorrows

Sep 6      Sometimes tears are base things; the offspring of a cowardly spirit. Some men weep when they should knit their brows, and many a woman weepeth when she should resign herself to the will of God. Many of those briny drops are but an expression of child-like weakness. It were well if we could wipe such tears away, and face a frowning world with a constant countenance. But oft...

Jeremiah 9:1

Independence of Christianity

Aug 31      God’s first and greatest object is his own glory. There was a time, before all time, when there was no day but the Ancient of days, when God dwelt alone in the magnificence of his sublime solitude. Whether he should create, or not create was a question depending upon the answer to another question—Would it be to his honor or not? He determined that he would glorify himself...
