SermonMinisterial Confessions
      We have been carnal and unspiritual. The tone of our life has been low and earthly. Associating too much and too intimately with the world, we have in a great measure become accustomed to its ways. Hence our spiritual tastes have been vitiated, our consciences blunted, and that sensitive tenderness of feeling has worn off and given place to an amou
SermonNazareth and Its Good News
       1867 "The acceptable year of the Lord." Luke 4:19 It is as a "preacher of the gospel" that the Lord here announces himself. He was sent of the Father, that he might "testify the gospel of the grace of God." Both in that which he spoke, and in that which he did, he showed himself the Revealer of the free-love of God. Not to create that love,
SermonSelf or Christ; Which Is It?
       1867 "For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and came to life for this: that He might rule over both the dead and the living." Romans 14:7-9 The words "none of us" show that the apostl
SermonThe Banished One Bearing Our Banishment
       1867 "Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch." John 10:23 The places which Jesus chiefly resorted to, during his life on earth, are unknown in Old Testament history. Bethany, and Nazareth, and Capernaum, and Nain, and Emmaus, are not mentioned in the lives of the saints before his coming. Their names rise up newly to the reader, and t
SermonThe Church's Amen
       1867 "He who testifies these things says, Surely I come quickly--Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Rev. 22:20, 21 It is "the true Witness" who speaks here. He speaks from heaven; and not to his apostles merely, nor to the seven Asian churches, nor to the saints of his own age; but to u
SermonThe Church's Widowhood
       1867 "And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying: Avenge me of my adversary." Luke 18:3 Without entering at length on an exposition of this parable, in either of its aspects, practical or prophetical, we may say this much: that it sets before us, under the figure of a widow--a feeble and injured widow--the true characte
SermonThe Cross--the Expression of Man's Unbelief
       1867 But they kept shouting, "Crucify him! Crucify him!" Luke 23:21 Crucifixion was the death of the outcast only, the Gentile outcast. Stoning was the Jewish death, crucifying the Gentile death, or rather the Roman death; the death devised and inflicted by the fourth great beast of Daniel, when exercising his power in trampling down the nati
SermonThe Divine Banquet
       1867 "He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy." Lev. 21:22 It is not easy to say whether the words, "bread of his God," refer generally to the sacrifices and offerings, or specially to the "show-bread." We take them as pointing to the latter; as, indeed, in any interpretation of the expression, the show-bread
SermonThe Family Discipline
      "Train up a child in the way he should go" is the injunction God lays on us. But it is, moreover, the principle on which He Himself is acting with His Church. He is training up His children here. This is the true character of His dealings with them. The education of His saints is the object He has in view. It is training for the kingdom; it is educ
SermonThe God of Grace
       1867 "So that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace, in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus." Ephesians 2:7 The history of God's "grace" or "free love", goes back into eternity. Our earth's six thousand years mark neither its beginning nor its end. It dates immeasurably backward among the ages that are past,
SermonThe Gospel of the Holy Spirit's Love
      Does the Holy Spirit love us? There can be but one answer to this question. Yes! He does. As truly as the Father loves us, as truly as the Son loves us, so truly does the Spirit love us. The grace or free love which a sinner needs, and which has been revealed and sealed to us through the Seed of the woman, the "Word made flesh," belongs equally t
SermonThe Holy Spirit
      The Holy Spirit begins, carries on, and consummates in us all spiritual feeling, all spiritual worship, all spiritual life and energy. There be nothing more hollow and unreal than religion without the Holy Spirit. That which is external and superficial, that which manifests itself in mere dress, and music, and routine service may flourish without H
SermonThe Manifested Life
       1867 "The Life was manifested." 1 John 1:2 "Like draws to like," is man's maxim, and man's principle of action. The things that resemble, attract each other; the things that differ, repel. Love attracts love; the loving and the loveable knit themselves together. Life attracts life; and the living cleave to the living. Things congenial discove
SermonThe Mortal and the Immortal
       1867 "All your life you will sweat to produce food, until your dying day. Then you will return to the ground from which you came. For you were made from dust, and to the dust you will return." Genesis 3:19 "Neither can they die any more." Luke 20:36 "They will never again be hungry or thirsty, and they will be fully protected from the scorchi
SermonThe Night of Weeping
      Laughter and revelry belong to a fallen world. They are too superficial to have place among the holy; and too hollow to be known among the truly happy. With the peace of God in our hearts we feel that we do not need them. They may do for childhood; they may do for the world; but not for us. They do not suit our feelings; they are not deep or solid
The Revelation of Jesus Christ - Table of Contents
       "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John--who bore record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he who reads, and those who hear the words o
SermonThe Risen Christ and the Things Above
       1867 "If (or--since), then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory."
SermonThe Servant of Sinners
       1867 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. Jesus said to them- "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like
SermonThe Sin Against the Holy Spirit
       1867 "I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven them. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin." He said this because they were saying--"He has an evil spirit." Mark 3:28-30 It would serve no purpose to discuss or enumerate the various opinions that
SermonThe Sin Unto Death
       1867 "If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that he should pray about that. All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death." 1 John 5:16-17 The si
