SermonThe Problems of Religious Life 10: The All-Sufficient Solution
       Christ Jesus--Mighty To Save and To Keep In looking back over the subjects we have considered together I am quite conscious that I have laid myself open to the charge of having approached these inquiries prejudiced in favor of Christianity. I at once admit the fact. To me religion and Christianity are synonymous terms. Do not misunderstand tha
SermonThe Purpose of Life
       Every one that is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him; yea, I have made him. Isaiah 43:7 The first application of this text was to God's ancient people Israel. The whole message of which it forms a part was delivered to the chosen nation. The opening word of the text indicates the fact that the prophet was
SermonThe Purpose of the Advent 1: To Destroy the Works of the Devil
       To this end was the Son of God manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8 We are approaching the festival of Christmas. In the calendar of the Christian year this is the first Sunday in Advent. I am proposing to speak for four successive Sunday evenings on the purposes of the Advent. The importance of the subject cann
The Purpose of the Advent 2: To Take Away Sins
       Ye know that He was manifested to take away sins; and in Him is no sin. 1 John 3:5 Last Sunday evening we spoke on a verse in this same chapter, "To this end was the Son of God manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." If the works of the devil are death, darkness, hatred and lawlessness, the one word "sin" expresses all these
The Purpose of the Advent 3: To Reveal the Father
       He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father. John 14:9 This is now the third study on the general subject of the purposes of the Advent. Having spoken of the fact that Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil, and of the fact that He was manifested to take away sins, we now turn to that wonderful fact that He was manifested to reve
The Purpose of the Advent 4: To Prepare for a 2nd Advent
       Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to them that wait for Him, unto salvation. Hebrews 9:28 We come this evening to consider the last of the four great values of the first Advent. We have spoken together of the fact that He was manifested to take away sins, that He was man
ArticleThe Purposes of the Incarnation
       Foreword The title of this meditation marks its limitation, and indicates its scope. Here is no attempt at defense of the statement of the New Testament that "the Word was made flesh." That is taken for granted as true. Moreover, here is no attempt to explain the method of the Holy Mystery. That is recognized as Mystery: a fact revealed
SermonThe Responsibilities of Salvation
       How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation? Hebrews 2:3 There are moods and tenses in the practical conjugation of the verb to live in which this may be said to be the central and supreme question of the New Testament. They are the moods in which the soul is acute in its consciousness of spiritual things, and they are the times in whic
SermonThe Resurrection
       ... it was not possible that He should be holden of it. Acts 2:24 So far as the records of the New Testament reveal, these words constitute the first Pentecostal comment upon the fact of the Resurrection. They occur in the second part of the discourse delivered upon the Day of Pentecost by Peter. In the early part of that discourse, he set the t
SermonThe Righteousness Which Exceeds
       Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the Kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:20 These are the closing words of the first section of the Manifesto of the King. As to their first value, they reveal the personal responsibility of all those who are to teach the ethic of Jesus.
SermonThe Rights of God
       He spake this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit thereon, and found none. And he said unto the vinedresser, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this tree, and find none: cut it dawn; why doth it also cumber the ground? And he answering saith unto him, Lord, let it alone this year
SermonThe Sanctions of Ordinances
       Is it lawful on the sabbath day to do good, or to do harm? to save a life, or to kill? Mark 3:4 The story of the healing of the man with the withered hand is part of a larger whole. Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell the story, and each places it in relation to the cornfield dispute about the Sabbath. Matthew and Mark read as though both events took p
SermonThe Secret of the Lord
       The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him; And He will shew them His covenant. Psalm 25:14 The sob of a great sorrow sounds throughout this psalm. The circumstances in which it was written are most evidently revealed by the words which occur through its process; desolation, affliction, distress, travail. These and other kindred words, s
SermonThe Secrets of Rest
       Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7 Whatever place Mendelssohn really occupies in the firmament of composers, it is certain that no single number of the great oratorios has made profounder or more lasting appeal to the heart of humanity than the poised and perfect air, "O rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him." This i
SermonThe Set Time
       Thou wilt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: For it is time to have pity upon her: yea, the set time is come. For Thy servants take pleasure in her stones, And have pity upon her dust. Psalm 102:13, 14 This psalm is peculiar, in that in the inscription to be found at its head we have a declaration of its character, and a revelation of the circumst
SermonThe Shock Which the Spell of Jesus Brings to the Soul
       And He called unto Him the multitude with His disciples, and said unto them, If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. Mark 8:34 Our text for the morning consists of the four words at the heart of that saying of Jesus, "Let him deny himself." That presupposes our previous meditation on the assump
SermonThe Sifting of Peter
       Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Matthew 16:16 He began to curse, and to swear, I know not this Man of Whom ye speak. Mark 14:71 The contrast is a startling one. It is at first sight almost inconceivable that these are the words of the same man, and yet we know that they are. Then surely we have p
SermonThe Son Of Man--Delivered Up
       The Son of Man is delivered up to be crucified. Matthew 26:2 The first thirty verses of this Chapter are characterized by contrast, by conflict, and yet by a strange and arresting co-operation. We are in the vestibule of the Holy Place of the sacrifice of the ages. The air is heavy with the electric sense of approaching storm; yet it seems so st
SermonThe Spell Which Jesus Casts On Men
       And He called unto Him the multitude with His disciples, and said unto them, If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. Mark 8:34 This is a very old text, but it is by no means exhausted. It is central to Christianity, being the inclusive message of Christ, having universal as well as individual a
SermonThe Spirit of Christ; The Supreme Test
       Ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. Romans 8:9 Two weeks ago, we confined our attention exclusively to the first part of this text, "Ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you.
