SermonThe Blameless Pair
       "And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless." Luke 1:6 The persons of whom the Holy Ghost has borne this honorable testimony are Zacharias and Elizabeth, the parents of John the Baptist. The character here ascribed to them, so excellent and desirable in itself, is especially de
SermonThe Characters Whom Christ Loves
       "I love them that love me." Proverbs 8:17. These are the words of Christ. He who is styled the Word of God in the New Testament, calls himself the wisdom of God in the Old. Under this character he is represented as standing in the public places of resort, and soliciting the attention of all who pass by: Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is
SermonThe Children of the Covenant, the Saviours First Care
       "Ye are the children of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first, God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." Acts 3:25, 26 These words compose part
SermonThe Christian Manner of Expressing Gratitude
       "The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain. But when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me. The Lord grant unto him, that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day" 2 Timothy 1:16,17,18 The enemies of Christianity, while stating its supposed defects, hav
SermonThe Churches Increased
       "Then had the churches rest throughout all Judea, and Galilee, and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied" Acts 9:31 In this passage, my friends, we have two things presented to our view, which it is at once pleasing and unusual to see. In the first place, we see th
SermonThe Condition of Men Without the Bible
       "If the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also, which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished." 1 Corinthians 15:16-18 It is often pretended, by those who receive not the truth as it is in Jesus, that all the religious errors and mistakes, which prevai
SermonThe Day of Small Things Not to be Despised
       "Who hath despised the day of small things" Zechariah 4:10 These words were addressed by Jehovah to his ancient people, soon after their return from the Babylonish captivity. They were then few in number, poor, feeble, and on the point of being swallowed up by their enemies. But notwithstanding all these discouraging circumstances they proceed
SermonThe Dead in Sin Made Alive
       "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past, ye walked according to the course of this world, according to he prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience; among whom also we all had our conversation in times past, in the lusts of the flesh, fulfilling the de
SermonThe Difficulty of Escaping the Damnation of Hell
      My hearers, I am not without apprehensions, that the passage, which I have chosen for the subject of this discourse, will sound harshly in your ears; and that its first effect will be to excite, in many breasts, feelings by no means favorable to the reception of truth. But it is a passage, which was uttered by the compassionate Savior of sinners, a
SermonThe Divinity of Christ
       "Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God" John 20:28 What think ye of Christ? is a question, which ought to be proposed to all who bear the Christian name, and to which every one should be ready to give a clear and explicit answer; especially at the present day, when so many seem disposed to thinly wrong, or not to think at all,
SermonThe End of Time
       "And the angel whom I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven; and sware by him that liveth forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that therein are, and the earth and the things that therein are, and the sea and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer; but in the days of the vo
SermonThe Feelings and Employments of Saints in Heaven
       "And cast their crowns before the throne" Revelation 5:10 Saint John, in this chapter, describes a vision, with which he was favored, of the heavenly world. After presenting to our view the throne of God, in the midst of which Jesus Christ appeared, as a lamb that had been slain, he proceeds to inform us by whom this throne was surrounded. Amo
SermonThe Final Judgment
       "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." 2 Corinthians 5:10 To a mind that looks beyond present appearances, to future realities; and with the eye of faith, sees things which are not, as though they were, how s
SermonThe Fulness of God Dwelling in Christ
       "In him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily" Colossians 2:9 This is asserted of Jesus Christ. It appears, at the first glance, to contain most important truth; truth which cannot but be interesting to all who wish to form just conceptions of our God and our Redeemer. Indeed, there are few passages in the inspired volume which would
SermonThe Glory Which is Due to Jehovah
       "Give unto the Lord, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; bring an offering, and come before him; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." 1 Chronicles 16:28, 29 A Thanksgiving Sermon. The sacred song, from which these words are selected, was composed by the sw
SermonThe Gospel, Glad Tidings
       "The glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust" 1 Timothy 1:11 Among the numerous burning and shining lights which our blessed Saviour has, at different periods; placed in his golden candlesticks to enlighten the church, during the long and gloomy night of his absence from the world, perhaps none have burned brighter,
SermonThe Guilt and Consequences of Parental Unfaithfulness
       "For I have told him, that I will judge his house forever, for the iniquity which he knoweth: because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not. And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering forever." 1 Samuel 3:13, 14 These words compose a par
SermonThe Guilt of Indifference to Divine Threatenings
       "Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants, that heard all these words" Jeremiah 22:24 When the events recorded in this chapter took place, Jeremiah had been employed for more than twenty years in discharging the duties of his prophetical office. During that period he had brought a great numbe
SermonThe Iniquity of the Fathers Visited Upon Their Children
       "Visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and fourth generation." Exodus 34:7 In this passage we have a part of the name of Jehovah, as proclaimed by himself. In the preceding chapter we find Moses praying for a manifestation of those attributes in which the divine glory essential
SermonThe Mark of Deliverance
       "And the Lord said unto him, go through the midst of the city, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and cry for all the abominations, that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in my hearing, go ye after him through the city, and smite; let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity; slay utterly old and young; bu
