Exhortation- "Set Your Heart"

1 Chronicles 22:19

Heart-Disease Curable

Jun 19 THIS text receives great lustre from the fact that it was one of the passages which the Saviour read when he entered into the synagogue at Nazareth and preached on the Sabbath-day. It is as fresh as ever, and we may still say of it, “This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.” It is no small privilege that we poor under-shepherds should be permitted to take the same...

Isaiah 61:1

The Plague of the Heart

Aug 10 You all know that the temple at Jerusalem was the one place of sacrifice throughout all the holy land, for thus had the Lord spoken, “Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice, and bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it unto the Lord; even that...

So all the promises of Scripture are...

How to Keep the Heart

Feb 21      IT IS REMARKABLE, that when we find an exhortation given to God's people in one part of the Holy Scripture, we almost invariably find the very thing which they are exhorted to do guaranteed to them, and provided for them, in some other part of the same blessed volume. This morning, my text was, "Keep the heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of...

Philippians 4:7

The Great Reservoir

Feb 21      IF I SHOULD VAINLY ATTEMPT to fashion my discourse after lofty models, I should this morning compare the human heart to the ancient city of Thebes, out of whose hundred gates multitudes of warriors were wont to march. As was the city, such were her armies, as was her inward strength, such were they who came forth of her. I might then urge the necessity of keeping the...
