The Horrible East Winds!

I DO not know-how it is, but during the last two or three days I have been called to sympathize with an amount of sorrow such as I have seldom met with before in so short a space of time. One messenger of misery has followed on the heels of another, each one with heavy tidings. Nor is that all; for I have also been perplexed with a large amount...

Colossians 3:15

Peace: A Fact and A Feeling

WONDERFUL is the power of faith. In the Epistle to the Hebrews our apostle tells us of the marvellous exploits which it has wrought in subduing kingdoms and obtaining promises, in quenching the violence of fire and stopping the mouths of lions, in braving perils and doing deeds of prowess. Still, to us personally one of the most wonderful of its effects is that it brings us justification and consequent...

Romans 5:1

Peace by Believing

Oct 3 A MOMENT'S contemplation would suffice to arouse any man to the terror of the position involved in being at war with God. For a subject to be in a state of sedition against a powerful monarch is to commit treason and to incur the forfeiture of his life. But for a creature to be in arms against its Creator ; for a thing that dependeth for its existence upon the...

Romans 5:1

The Reason Why Many Cannot Find Peace

Apr 7 WE frequently meet with persons who tell us that they cannot find peace with God. They have been bidden to believe in the Lord Jesus, but they misunderstand the command, and, while they think they are obeying it, they are really unbelievers; hence they miss the way of peace. They attempt to pray, but their petitions are not answered, and their supplications yield them no comfort whatever, for neither their...

James 4:7-10

The Peace of God

Jan 6 “PEACE” is a heavenly word. When at the advent of our Lord angels came to sing among men a midnight sonnet their second note was “Peace on earth.” Would God the shining ones would chant that song again till yonder Balkans heard the strain, and shook off the sulphurous cloud which now hangs around them. Those who have ever seen war, or even come near the trail of its bloody...

Philippians 4:7

Negotiations for Peace

Sep 18 THESE words were addressed to an admirable congregation, all met with an earnest purpose, all conscious that they were in the presence of God, all like good soil that had been ploughed and prepared for the good seed. Happy preacher to have such a congregation. God make this congregation to be of the same sort. The preacher also was a right faithful messenger from heaven. No sooner did Peter know...

Acts 10:36

The Winnowing Fan

Jul 10 WELL did the apostle declare that the righteous scarcely are saved. It is no child's-play to be a Christian. The Christian life is beyond the poet's meaning, real and earnest. The hills of difficulty which lie before us are no molehills, and the giants and dragons with which we must contend are no phantoms of a disordered brain. When we reach heaven, what monuments of grace we shall be, and...

Hebrews 12:14, 15

Inward Conflicts

Oct 9 THIS verse is not addressed to the Church in her doubting state, nor while seeking her absent Lord, but it refers to her in her very best condition, when she has lately come from the enjoyment of fellowship with her divine spouse, and when her soul in consequence is like the chariots of Amminadib. Read the context, and you will perceive that believers, who are rejoicing in the Lord, may...

Solomon 6:13

Spiritual Peace

Feb 19      Our Lord was now about to die, to depart from this world, and to ascend to his Father; he therefore makes his will; and this is the blessed legacy which he leaves to the faithful—"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you." We may rest well assured that this testament of our Lord Jesus Christ is valid. You have here his own signature; it is...
