But a Step

1 Samuel 20:3

What is Your Life?

James 4:14

Alive

Dec 12 YESTERDAY afternoon I was the subject of a somewhat singular circumstance. An esteemed friend and relative came over to my house, evidently labouring under great disturbance of mind, and having enquiries to make of a very important order. I was at the time walking in the garden, so that I did not see him, and he appeared to have great difficulty in mentioning the subject of his concern to my...

Psalm 119:144

Life More Abundant

Jan 4 “THE thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” False teachers, whatever their professions, seriously injure and emperil the souls of men, and in the end cause their destruction; their selfish ends can only be answered by the ruin of their dupes. The Lord Jesus, the true teacher of men, causes injury to none, and brings death to no man's door. His teaching is full...

John 10:10

Alive or Dead- Which?

Jun 16 LAST Sabbath morning we addressed you upon the gracious operations of the Holy Spirit in the believer, and upon the glorious fact of his dwelling in the hearts of the regenerate. Now, it frequently happens that when we discourse upon the work of the Holy Spirit, there are certain weak and uninstructed brethren who straightway fall into questionings and despondencies, because they in some point or other are unable to...

1 John 5:12

Life in Earnest

Feb 2      THIS is no unusual occurrence; in fact it seems to be the general rule of the moral universe that those men prosper who do their work with all their hearts, while those are almost certain to fail who go to their labour leaving half their hearts behind them. Look around you in business. Who are the young men who rise in the establishment? Not your men who sleep...

2 Chronicles 31:21

A Voice from the Hartley Colliery

Jan 30      ONCE more the Lord has spoken. Once again the voice of Providence has proclaimed “All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of grass.” O sword of the Lord, when wilt thou rest and be quiet? Wherefore these repeated warnings? Why doth the Lord so frequently and so terribly sound an alarm? Is it not because our drowsy spirits will not awaken to...

Job 14:14

The Good Man's Life and Death

Aug 16      How ominously these words follow each other in the text—"live," "die." There is but a comma between them, and surely as it is in the words so is it in reality. How brief the distance between life and death! In fact there is none. Life is but death's vestibule, and our pilgrimage on earth is but a journey to the grave. The pulse that preserves our being beats...

Philippians 1:21
