A Last Look-Out

Jan 13

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 …

Our Gifts, and How to Use Them   “Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God. which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.”— 2 Timothy i. 6.   I SUPPOSE that Timothy was a somewhat retiring youth and that from the gentleness of his nature he needed to be …

Eternal Faithfulness Unaffected by Human Unbelief

Jan 01

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.

The Form of Godliness without the Power

Jun 02

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 …

Not Bound Yet

Apr 07

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 …

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.

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 …

Aug 09

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.

The Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus

Apr 09

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 …
