The Planter of the Ear Must Hear

Oct 31 THE character of a man hinges upon his relation to God. You may know what manner of man he is, and what are his communications, if you find out how he stands towards God. With the many God is a mere name: a word to be pronounced more or less reverently; but nothing more. He is not a force operating upon their daily lives. His glory is no motive of...

Psalm 94:9

Sown Among Thorns

Aug 19 WHEN that which comes of his sowing is unfruitful, the sower’s work is wasted: he has spent his strength for nought. Without fruit the sower’s work would even seem to be insane; for he takes good wheat, throws it away, and loses it in the ground. Preaching is the idlest of occupations if the word be not adapted to enter the heart, and produce good results. O my hearers, if...

Matthew 13:7 & 22

Loving Persuasion

Jun 26 WHEREVER Paul is, he has but one errand; and whenever Paul preaches, he has but one subject. Once at Athens, when he addressed the Areopagus, he seemed to wander a little from his main point, and no special good followed, but this experience bound him all the faster to the cross; for he afterwards said to the Corinthians, “I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and...

Acts 28:23

The Pleading of the Last Messenger

Mar 6 BRETHREN, you know the story of God’s dealing with Israel, and Israel’s dealing with God. The Lord chose their fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; he made them a race separated unto himself, he brought them out of Egypt from under the iron yoke; he led them through the Red Sea; he fed them for forty years in the wilderness; he led them about and tutored them, even as a man...

Mark 12:6-9

The Soul-Winner

Jan 20 I HAD very great joy last night— many of you know why, but some do not. We held our annual meeting of the church, and it was a very pleasant sight to see so many brethren and sisters knit together in the heartiest love, welded together as one mass by common sympathies, and holding firmly to “one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.” Think of a church with 4,900 members!...

Proverbs 11:30

Every-Day Usefulness

Feb 14 WE have a most intense desire for the revival of religion in our own midst, and throughout all the churches of our Lord Jesus. We see that error is making great advances, and we would fain lift up a banner for the cause of truth; we pity the mighty populations among whom we dwell, for they are still godless and Christless, and the things of their peace are hid from...

John 1:42

Fields White for Harvest

Jul 29 MANY unbelieving Christians have a very large stock of reasons for not expecting to see many conversions. They suppose that any present manifestation of the divine power in connection with the truth is not to be expected. They read the history of past ages and they wonder, and sometimes, when their eye is sufficiently clear, they look forward with some sort of hope to the repetition of these scenes in...
