SermonTrue Words for Brave Men, 22 - THE SAILOR'S GOD
      PREACHED TO SAILORS AT A LITTLE FISHING VILLAGE IN CORNWALL, 1843. "They that go down to the sea in ships, and occupy their business in great waters; these men see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep."--Ps. cvii. 23, 24. My brothers--for though I do not know most of you even by name, yet you are still my brothers, for His sake
SermonTrue Words for Brave Men, 23 - THE GOOD SOLDIER OF JESUS CHRIST
      "Thou therefore endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ."--2 TIMOTHY ii. 3. Suppose a young man went of his own will for a soldier; was regularly sworn in to serve the Queen; took his bounty; wore the Queen's uniform; ate her bread; learnt his drill; and all that a soldier need learn, as long as peace lasted. But suppose that, as soon
SermonTrue Words for Brave Men, 24 - HOLY COMMUNION; CHRIST AND THE SINNER
      "Have mercy upon, me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness; according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart,
      My friends,--I speak to you simply as brave men. {199} I speak alike to Roman Catholic and Protestant. I speak alike to godly men and ungodly. I speak alike to soldiers and sailors. . . . If you are brave, read these words. I call these brave words. They are not my own words, or my own message, but the message to you of the bravest man who ever liv
SermonTrue Words for Brave Men, 26 - THE STORY OF CORTEZ
      THE STORY OF CORTEZ; OR PLUCK IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY A LECTURE DELIVERED AT ALDERSHOT CAMP, NOV. 1858. It seemed to me that, having to speak to-night to soldiers, that I ought to speak about soldiers. Some story, I thought, about your own profession would please you most and teach you most. Some story, I say, for it is not my business to tell
SermonTrue Words for Brave Men, 27 - PICTURE GALLERIES
      Picture-galleries should be the working-man's paradise, {230} a garden of pleasure, to which he goes to refresh his eyes and heart with beautiful shapes and sweet colouring, when they are wearied with dull bricks and mortar, and the ugly colourless things which fill the town, the workshop and the factory. For, believe me, there is many a road into
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 1 - GOD'S WORLD
      PSALM civ. 24. "O Lord, how manifold are Thy works! in wisdom hast Thou made them all: the earth is full of Thy riches." When we read such psalms as the one from which this verse is taken, we cannot help, if we consider, feeling at once a great difference between them and any hymns or religious poetry which is commonly written or read in thes
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 2 - RELIGION NOT GODLINESS
      PSALM civ. 13-15. "He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; and wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth m
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 3 - LIFE AND DEATH
      PSALM civ. 24, 28-30. "O Lord, how manifold are Thy works! in wisdom hast Thou made them all: the earth is full of Thy riches. That Thou givest them they gather: Thou openest Thine hand, they are filled with good. Thou hidest Thy face, they are troubled: Thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Thou sendest forth Thy sp
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 4 - THE WORK OF GOD'S SPIRIT
      JAMES, i. 16, 17. "Do not err, my beloved brethren; every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights." This text, I believe more and more every day, is one of the most important ones in the whole Bible; and just at this time it is more important for us than ever, because people have forgotten it
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 5 - FAITH
      HABAKKUK, ii. 4. "The just shall live by faith." This is those texts of which there are so many in the Bible, which, though they were spoken originally to one particular man, yet are meant for every man. These words were spoken to Habakkuk, a Jewish prophet, to check him for his impatience under God's hand; but they are just as true for every
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 6 - THE SPIRIT AND THE FLESH
      GALATIANS, v. 16. "I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lusts of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary the one to the other." The more we think seriously, my friends, the more we shall see what wonderful and awful things words are, how they mean muc
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 7 - RETRIBUTION
      NUMBERS, xxxii. 23. "Be sure your sin will find you out." The full meaning of this text is, that every sin which a man commits is certain, sooner or later, to come home to him with fearful interest. Moses gave this warning to two tribes of the Israelites,--to the Reubenites and Gadites, who had promised to go over Jordan, and help their co
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 8 - SELF-DESTRUCTION
      1 KINGS, xxii. 23. "The Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets." The chapter from which my text is taken, which is the first lesson for this evening's service, is a very awful chapter, for it gives us an insight into the meaning of that most awful and terrible word-- temptation. And yet it is a most comforting cha
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 9 - HELL ON EARTH
      MATTHEW, viii. 29. "And behold the evil spirits cried out, saying, What have we to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of God? Art Thou come hither to torment us before the time?" This account of the man possessed with devils, and of his language to our Lord, of our Lord's casting the devils out of the poor sufferer, and His allowing them to enter
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 10 - NOAH'S JUSTICE
      GENESIS, vi. 9. "Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." I intend, my friends, according as God shall help me, to preach to you, between this time and Christmas, a few sermons on some of the saints and worthies of the Old Testament; and I will begin this day with Noah. Now you must bear in mind that t
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 11 - THE NOACHIC COVENANT
      GEN, ix. 8, 9. "And God spake unto Noah, and his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you." In my last sermon on Noah I spoke of the flood and of Noah's faith before the flood; I now go on to speak of the covenant which God made with Noah after the flood. Now, Noah stood on that newl
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 12 - ABRAHAM'S FAITH
      HEBREWS, xi. 9, 10. "By faith Abraham sojourned in the land of promise as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked for a city, which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God." In the last sermon which I preached in this church, I said that the Bible is th
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 13 - ABRAHAM'S OBEDIENCE
      HEBREWS, xi. 17-19. "By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac; and he that had received the promises offered up his only-begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure." In this chapter we com
SermonTwenty-Five Village Sermons, 14 - OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN
      1 JOHN, ii. 13. "I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father." I preached some time ago a sermon on the whole of these most deep and blessed verses of St. John. I now wish to speak to those who are of age to be confirmed three separate sermons on three separate parts of these verses. First to those whom St. John cal
