SermonThe Victorious Christian Life
       Having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13 The words thrill with a sense of power even when taken, as I have now taken them, out of their setting. They suggest assured victory. "Having done all, to stand." Considered in their textual relation this becomes far more apparent. I think I had hardly dared to read these words as text if I had not alrea
SermonThe Vine
       I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for severed from Me ye can do nothing. John 15:5 These words are among the most simple, the most sublime and the most solemn which ever fell from the sacred lips of our adorable Redeemer. They were spoken to a small group of men who at the momen
SermonThe Wages of Sin-The Gift of God
       For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 In the previous chapter we considered the tremendous declaration of Paul that where sin abounds, grace does more exceedingly abound. Continuing in this chapter, we lay emphasis upon the individual and particular responsibility of that tr
SermonThe Way of Righteousness
       ... thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Matthew 3:15 These are the first recorded words of Jesus after He had come to man's estate. We have in the Gospel of Luke a record of what He said as a boy twelve years of age, Wist ye not that I must be in the things of My Father (my Father's house)." That was a truly remarkable utterance cha
SermonThe Way to the Altar
       If, therefore, thou art offering thy gift at the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Matthew 5:23, 24 These words are found in the Manifesto of the King, and constitute part of the sectio
SermonThe Well-Doing That Brings Harvest
       Let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap if we faint not. Galatians 6:9 This apostolic injunction has a much wider application than its context. There the reference is to the fellowship which they that are taught in the Word have with their teachers. The apostle, writing to these Galatian Christians, charged them that t
SermonThe Word Became Flesh
       And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us... full of grace and truth. John 1:14 Whatever, in the complexity of present-day thought, may be our view of the method of the advent, it is impossible to deny that nigh two thousand years ago that happened which has absolutely and completely revolutionized human thinking and human life. The student
SermonThe Work of Faith
       This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him Whom He hath sent. John 6:29 The message of this text is a sequel to the subject of our previous consideration. I then spoke from the first words our Lord uttered when He began His public ministry. The keynote of the preaching of Jesus called for a change of mind in its initial word, "Repent," and
SermonThe Young Ruler
       One thing thou lackest. Mark 10:21 It seems to us as though Jesus never said a more startling thing to any man who came to Him than this, "One thing thou lackest." Yet whether the "one thing" be much or little depends wholly upon what it is. Some five or six years ago, in an American city, as I stood upon the platform and gave out my first hymn
SermonThings New and Old
       Have ye understood all these things? They say unto Him, Yea. And He said unto them, Therefore every scribe who hath been made a disciple to the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. Matthew 13:51, 52 Jesus had been instructing His disciples in the mysteries of the
SermonThings Shaken-Things Not Shaken
       And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that have been made, that those things which are not shaken may remain. Hebrews 12:27 The first value of these words is that they constitute a Christian interpretation of a phrase in a Hebrew prophecy. Their final value is that they reveal a perpe
SermonThou Shalt Remember
       And thou shalt remember all the way which Jehovah thy God hath led thee. Deuteronomy 8:2 When these words were uttered, Israel was at the parting of the ways. A change was imminent, both of leaders and of circumstances. Moses well knew that very soon he would lay down the burden which he had borne so long and so bravely, and that another would b
DevotionalThree Hours
      "He saved others; Himself He cannot." So they laughed at Him. Hear it again as a truth sublime and awful: because He saved others, He cannot save Himself. In order to save others He will not save Himself. Said the rabble, and said the rabbis joining in the unholy chorus, "Let Him come down from the cross"-27:42. He did not come down from the cr
SermonTongues Like as of Fire: The Symbol of the Church
       And there appeared unto them tongues parting asunder, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them. Acts 2:3 The Day of Pentecost had come. The week of weeks had run its course. Nine and forty days had passed since Passover. Devout men from every nation under heaven were at Jerusalem for this Feast of Weeks, and in an upper room a few men,
SermonTribulation, Kingdom, and Patience
       ... the tribulation and kingdom and patience... in Jesus.... Revelation 1:9 The text is only a phrase. But what a phrase it is. Taken thus, in separation from its context it is full of suggestiveness. Its opening word, "tribulation," is tremulous with sadness. It speaks of stress and strain and sorrow. Its central word, "kingdom," is pregnant wi
DevotionalTrue Love Waits on God
      For those who thus wait, God works; and as surely as men wait for Him while He works for them, there will come to them, presently, the clarion call to arise and cooperate. When it comes, the plan is almost invariably a different one from that which had been expected. "In ways we looked not for," said the prophet, "Thou hast wrought for us in the pa
SermonUnderstanding, or Bit and Bridle
       Be ye not as the horse or as the mule, which have no understanding; whose trappings must be bit and bridle to hold them in, else they will not come near unto thee. Psalm 32:9 Be yet not foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:17 The similarity between these two texts is self-evident. The Hebrew Psalmist, and the Chr
SermonUnpardonable Sin
       Verily I say unto you, All their sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and their blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: but whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin. Mark 3:28, 29 It is impossible to overestimate the solemnity of these words of our tender and com
SermonWaiting for God
       For from of old men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen a God beside Thee, Which worketh for him that waiteth for him. Isaiah 64:4 Things which eye saw not, and ear heard not, And which entered not into the heart of man, whatsoever things God prepared for them that love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 The similarity bet
SermonWas Thomas Mistaken?
       Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God. John 20:28 In the Biblical order this is the eighth day after Easter, and consequently, the anniversary of the day on which Thomas uttered his great confession; and our Lord, His final beatitude. The confession of Thomas was the greatest of the confessions which fell from the lips of discipl
