SermonThe Sincerity of Divine Expostulations
       1867 Now as for you, son of man, say to the house of Israel: You have said this: "Our transgressions and our sins are heavy on us, and we are wasting away because of them! How then can we survive?" Tell them: "As I live"--the declaration of the Lord God--"I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked person should tu
SermonThe Sincerity of the Divine Compassion
       1867 "It repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart." Gen. 6:6 The manner in which God here acknowledges man as his handiwork is specially to be noted. The words are, "It repented the Lord that he had made man upon earth." It is not said generally, "that man had been made;" but definitely, that "he ha
SermonThe Surety's Baptism
       1867 "I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division." Luke 12:49-51 Messiah was announced, by the prophets, as King of Peace and King of Righteousness. He w
SermonThe Surety's Cross
       1867 "The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ." Galatians 6:14 The death of the cross has always been, above every other, reckoned the death of shame. The fire, the sword, the axe, the stone, the hemlock, have in their turns been used by law, as its executioners; but these have, in so many cases, been associated with honor, that death by means of
SermonThe Surety's Sorrow
       1867 "Now is my soul troubled." John 12:27 This twenty-seventh verse connects itself, not so much with the three previous verses, as with the twenty-third. The first announcement is, "The hour is come, that the Son of Man should be glorified;" the second is, "Now is my soul troubled." The connection between these two statements does not seem
SermonThe Surety's Thirst
       1867 "I thirst." John 19:28 Three things need our notice here--the thirst, the cry, the answer. They are not trifles, nor accidents, either in themselves or in connection with the great event of which they form a part. They have much to tell us of the Sufferer, and the nature of his sufferings; and they help us to get at the meaning of the my
SermonThe Three Witnesses
       1867 "This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth." 1 John 5:6 The world is not for us, but against us. It lies in wickedness, and must be our enemy. It is Satan's kingdom, and can afford us neither home no
SermonThe Vain Wish
       1867 "Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his." Numbers 23:10 We must not lose sight of the place where these words were spoken. It was in the land of Moab, and amid the wild desolation of its bare grey hills. It was nearby the land of promise--but not in it; quite within sight of it, yet still with Jordan and t
SermonThe World's Oracles
       1867 "The idols have spoken vanity!" Zechariah 10:2 There are not many who think for themselves; and even those who are reckoned to do so, depend for the materials of thinking upon what they hear, or see, or touch. In the things of God this must be so, much more than in others. It is in hearing him that we are furnished with materials for thi

       Words to Winners of Souls By Horatius Bonar, D.D. Messrs. James Nisbet & Co., London. 1877 Chapter 1 "How much more would a few good and fervent men effect in the ministry than a multitude of lukewarm ones!" said Oecolampadius, the Swiss Reformer -- a man who had been taught by experience, and who has recorded that experience for the be
