The Private Tutor

May 24 ALL through this thrice-blessed chapter man cuts a very sorry figure. Whoever it is that speaks, whether it be Philip, or Judas, or Thomas, each one displays his own ignorance, either by asking an unwise question or by making a mistaken request. Yet, brethren, these apostolic men were by no means inferior persons; but so superior that we sink into insignificance in comparison with them. Jesus made them heralds of...

John 14:24-26

Receiving the Holy Ghost

Jul 13 IT may be well to notice what question the apostle did not put to these Ephesian disciples of John. He did not say to them, “Have ye believed?” This would have been a very important question, but it ought to be settled once for all. Our faith must either be boldly affirmed or sorrowfully denied, but it should not remain the subject of question. It is a great pity that...

Acts 19:2

The Entreaty of the Holy Ghost

Mar 1 How does the Holy Ghost thus speak? He saith this first, in the Scriptures. Every command of Scripture calls for immediate obedience. The law of God is not given to us to be laid by upon the shelf to be obeyed at some future period of life, and the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is not so intended for the eleventh hour as to be lightly trifled...

Hebrews 3:7

The ungodly are showing the venom of their hearts by mourning and complaining, while the righteous are...

Jude 20

Pentecost

May 24 How absolutely necessary is the presence and power of the Holy Spirit! It is not possible for us to promote the glory of God or to bless the souls of men, unless the Holy Ghost shall be in us and with us. Those who were assembled on that memorable day of Pentecost, were all men of prayer and faith; but even these precious gifts are only available when the celestial...

Acts 2:1-4

The Power of the Holy Ghost

Jun 17      Power is the special and peculiar prerogative of God, and God alone. "Twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God." God is God; and power belongeth to him. If he delegates a portion of it to his creatures, yet still it is hispower. The sun, although he is "like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run his race," yet has...
