Plenteous Redemption

REDEMPTION is a word which has gladdened many ears, when there was no heavenly sound in its blessed chime. Apart from any theological use of it, the word is a very sweet one, and has been melodious to many hearts. In those days when piracy was carried on continually along the coast of Africa, when our fellow Christian subjects were caught by corsairs, and carried away captive, you can well...

Psalm 130:7

Silver Sockets: or, Redemption the Foundation

Jan 30 “A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men. And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail; an hundred sockets of the hundred talents,...

Exodus 30:11-16

Redemption by Price

Aug 22 ATTACKS have often been made upon the central doctrine of the gospel, namely, the doctrine of redemption or atonement, for it is well known to be the Redan of the gospel. These onslaughts have in many instances been very craftily made; they have professed to be mere corrections of our phraseology, but were essentially assaults upon the truth itself. We believe that in and through the blood of Jesus we...

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Remember!

Mar 31 IN an autobiography of William Jay we read that on one occasion he called to see the famous Mr. John Newton, at Olney, and he observed that over the desk at which he was accustomed to compose his sermons, he had written up in very large letters the following words: “Remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the Lord thy God redeemed thee.” To my...

Deuteronomy 15:15

Redemption and its Claims

Mar 8 THE same words are found in each place, though a different inference is drawn from them. “Ye are bought with a price.” This morning’s text was “Without money and without price,” and to the best of my ability I tried to show how freely the blessings of the gospel are bestowed upon the sons of men. But though they cost us nothing, they cost the Saviour dear. They are without...

1 Corinthians 6:20, 7:23

"Bought with a Price"

Aug 6      Our beloved brother, Thomas Cook, who has for so long a time served this church as an honored deacon, has fallen asleep in Christ. We have laid his earthly remains in the tomb: his spirit rejoices before the throne of God. This day we thank God for his useful life, and ask for grace to imitate it. Before he closed his eyes in death he left a text...

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

General and yet Particular

Apr 24      THIS was used by our Saviour as an argument why the Father should glorify him in his dread hour of conflict. Our Lord did as much as say, “Thou hast already given me what I now ask; therefore, since thou hast virtually bestowed it upon me in the covenant, give it me now in very deed.” So the believer, when he prays, asks for what is already his...

John 17:2

Full Redemption

Apr 22 The controversy between Jehovah, the God of the whole earth, and Pharaoh, king of Egypt, was intended to be remembered, and spoken of throughout all generations. On that occasion, God permitted human nature to arrive at its highest degree of stubbornness and obstinacy; but he, nevertheless, cowed it, and overcame it. He did indeed raise up Pharaoh for this purpose, that he might show forth his power in him. Pharaoh, as...

Exodus 10:26

Particular Redemption

Feb 28      WHEN first it was my duty to occupy this pulpit, and preach in this hall, my congregation assumed the appearance of an irregular mass of persons collected from all the streets of this city to listen to the Word. I was then simply an evangelist, preaching to many who had not heard the Gospel before. By the grace of God, the most blessed change has taken place; and...
