A Last Look-Out

January 13, 2018

A Last Look-Out   "The time of my departure is at hand."—2 Timothy 4:6        So near, so very near the change—his removal from this to another world; and so very conscious of it; yet Paul looked back with calm satisfaction; he looked forward with sweet assurance; and he looked round with deepest interest on the mission …

2 Timothy:4:6

Eternal Faithfulness Unaffected by Human Unbelief

January 1, 1970

Eternal Faithfulness Unaffected by Human Unbelief    “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” 2 Timothy ii. 13.   THIS is one of the five faithful sayings which the apostle mentions. All those faithful sayings are weighty and important. I suppose that they may have come into the possession of the church by having …

The Form of Godliness without the Power

June 2, 1889

The Form of Godliness without the Power   “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”— 2 Timothy iii. 5.   PAUL warns us of certain characters which will appear in the last times. It is a very terrible list. The like have appeared in other days, hut we are led by his …

2 Timothy:3:5

Not Bound Yet

April 7, 1887

Not Bound Yet   “Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.”— 2 Timothy ii. 9.   You will observe, if you read the verse which precedes, which indeed it would be wrong to dissever from the text, that the doctrine of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus …

2 Timothy:2:9

Confidence and Concern

August 8, 1886

Confidence and Concern   “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, …

2 Timothy:1:12-14.

The Sunday-School and the Scriptures

October 18, 1885

The Sunday-School and the Scriptures   “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”— 2 Timothy iii. 15.   How very remarkably the times repeat themselves! As I said just now, in the reading of the chapter, the warning which …

2 Timothy:3:15

The Foundation and Its Seal: A Sermon for the Times

August 9, 1885

The Foundation and its Seal: A Sermon For the Times   “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity."— 2 Tim. ii. 19. PAUL had met with many difficulties in his earnest career, but his most …

2 Timothy:2:19

The Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus

April 9, 1882

The Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus    “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel.”— 2 Timothy ii. 8.   FROM long sickness my mind is scarcely equal to the work before me. Certainly, if I had ever sought after brilliance of thought or language, I should have failed …

2 Timothy:2:8

The Sick Man Left Behind

January 12, 1879

The Sick Man Left Behind   “But Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick.” — 2 Timothy iv. 20.   THESE are among the last words of Paul the Apostle, for we find them in the closing verses of the last of his epistles. The chapter reminds us of a dying man’s final adieu to his best beloved friend, …

2 Timothy:4:20

The Great House and The Vessels in it

April 8, 1877

The Great House and The Vessels in it   “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet …
