A Warning Against Hardness of Heart

Mar 19 THE children of Israel in their coming out of Egypt, and in their forty years’ sojourn in the wilderness, represented the visible Church of the living God; not the secret and elect body of the redeemed, but the professing company of the outward Church. They were very prone to the great sin of unbelief. They believed in God after a fashion while they saw his wonders, but the moment they...

Hebrews 3:13

Let Us Go Forth

Jun 26 MODERN professors have discovered a very easy way of religion. There is a method by which a man may attain to great reputation as a Christian, and yet avoid all the trials of the believer's estate. He may go through the world finding his path as smoothly turfed as the flesh could desire. Blessed with the smiles of friendly formalists, and with the admiration of the ungodly, he may pass...

Hebrews 13:13

Chastisement- Now and Afterwards

Sep 6 LAST Sabbath morning we tried to shew you how the uncleanness of sin is removed. By the application of the blood of Christ the guilt of sin is cleansed; by the water which flowed with the blood from the side of Jesus defilement is taken away for ever. Our work this morning is to consider the destruction of the power of sin. This is a work which rests in the...

Hebrews 12:11

Strong Meat

Apr 19      IN most large houses we shall find humanity in all its stages. We shall see the infant, in its cradle; children laughing in their play, young men working with vigour, and the old man resting in peace. In such a mansion, if a careful Martha be in charge, provision will be made for all the different ages. There will be milk provided for the babes, and the larder...

Hebrews 5:14

A Tempted Saviour—Our Best Succour

Jan 4      My text, furnishing the motto for the congregation for the New Year, is, as you know, always supplied to me by a most venerable clergyman of the Church of England, who has ever showed to me the most constant and affectionate regard. I have no doubt that the present text has been suggested to this aged servant of the Lord by his deep experience at once of affliction...

Hebrews 2:18

Christ—Perfect Through Sufferings

Nov 2      BELIEVING that God foreknoweth all things, we cannot but come to the conclusion that he foreknew the fall, and that it was but an incident in the great method by which he would glorify himself. Foreknowing the fall, and fore-ordaining and predestinating the plan by which he would rescue his chosen out of the ruins thereof, he was pleased to make that plan a manifestation of all his...

Hebrews 2:10

Never! Never! Never! Never! Never!

Oct 26      WHAT power resides in “Thus saith the Lord!” The man who can grasp by faith, “He hath said,” has an all-conquering weapon in his hand. What doubt will not be slain by this two-edged sword? What fear is that which shall not fall smitten with a deadly wound before this arrow from the bow of God’s covenant? Will not the distresses of life and the pangs of death,...

Hebrews 13:5

Obtaining Promises

Feb 16       THE promises of God are to the believer an inexhaustible mine of wealth. Happy is it for him if he knows how to search out their secret veins and enrich himself with their hid treasures. They are to him an armoury containing all manner of offensive and defensive weapons. Blessed is he who has learned to enter into the sacred arsenal, to put on the breastplate and the...

Hebrews 11:33

The Two Advents of Christ

Dec 22      WE must begin by noticing the parallel which the apostle here draws. The words “as” and “so” suggest a comparison between two truths the correspondence of which he designed to set forth; the one a fact generally allowed, the other a fact he was anxious to inculcate. Now you will note that he says “It is appointed unto men once to die,” and only once. This is a...

Hebrews 9:27-28

The Blood of the Everlasting Covenant

Oct 2      All God’s dealings with men have had a covenant character. It hath so pleased Him to arrange it, that he will not deal with us except through a covenant, nor can we deal with Him except in the same manner. Adam in the garden was under a covenant with God and God was in covenant with Him. That covenant he speedily brake. There is a covenant still existing...
