Concerning Saints

Do not throw yourselves back in your seats, and say, “This will be a sermon for saints, and therefore we may be excused from attending to it.” Do you not see that the first clause gives you a fair word and a kindly hint? “All thy works shall praise thee, O Jehovah.” Through this you may enter, as by an open door, for if you are not Jehovah’s saints you...

Psalm 145:10

Exceeding Gladness

Dec 21 You have heard a great many sermons upon the Man of Sorrows. I am sure that you have not heard too many; and if, from this time to the end of your life, you should every Sabbath hear of him, and of his sufferings, you will not be nauseated with that theme. You will still feel an intense pleasure in hearing the story of your Lord’s griefs, and in having...

Psalm 21:6

An Inscription for the Mausoleum of the Saints

May 8 “THESE all died in faith.” Believers constitute a class by themselves,— “These.” They are the people that dwell alone, and shall not be numbered among the nations. We see a great many distinctions in the world which God takes no notice of: there is neither Jew nor Gentile, bond nor free, in his sight. But there is a distinction which men think little of, which is greatly observed of God;...

Hebrews 11:13-14

The Fair Portrait of a Saint

Mar 7 THUS Job speaks of himself, not by way of vaunting, but by way of vindication. Eliphaz the Temanite and his two companions had brought distinct charges against Job’s character: because they saw him in such utter misery they concluded that his adversity must have been sent as a punishment for his sin, and therefore they judged him to be a hypocrite, who under cover of religion had exercised oppression and...

Job 23:11-12

Saints in Heaven and Earth One Family

Aug 8 BEREAVEMENTS are among the sorest griefs of this mortal life. We are permitted by God to love those whom he gives to us, and our heart eagerly casts its tendrils around them, and therefore when suddenly the beloved objects are withdrawn by death, our tenderest feelings are wounded. It is not sinful for us to lament the departure of friends, for Jesus wept; it would be unnatural and inhuman if...

Ephesians 3:15

The Saints Blessing the Lord

Oct 20 You see here a man talking to himself, a soul with all his soul talking to his soul. Every speaker should learn to soliloquise. His own soul is the first audience a good man ought to think of preaching to. Before we address ourselves to others we should lecture within the doors of our own heart. Indeed, if any man desires to excite the hearts of others in any given...

Psalm 103:1

What and Whence are These?

Feb 25      Towards some subjects even the best of men need that their attention should be drawn. Certain themes need an introduction to our contemplations. We often see and yet do not see: we see that which upon the surface attracts the eye, but we fail to penetrate into the inner and more precious truth. Even in heaven, it would seem that the mind needs directing, and wants a friend...

Revelation 7:13-14

The Saint and the Spirit

Jun 8 THE Holy Spirit, although he is the most active, most potent, and most real worker in the world, is not discerned by the mass of mankind. The great majority of men are affected only by what they see, or hear, or feel; their life is confined to the narrow range of their senses. “What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? ”— these...

John 14:17

A Mystery! Saints Sorrowing and Jesus Glad!

Aug 7      There lived in the little village of Bethany a very happy family. There was neither father nor mother in it: the household consisted of the unmarried brother Eleazar, or Lazarus, and his sisters, Martha and Mary, who dwelt together in unity so good and pleasant that there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. This affectionate trio were all lovers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and...

John 11:14-15

The Saint's Horror at the Sinner's Hell

Aug 16 WE must all be gathered in due course. When time shall have ripened the fruit, it must hang no longer upon the tree, but be gathered into the basket; when the summer's sun has perfectly matured the corn, the sickle must be brought forth, and the harvest must be reaped; to everything thing there is a season and an end. There shall be a gathering-time for every one of us....
