|Sermon||Keep Yourselves In The Love Of God|
Keep yourselves in the love of God. Jude 21
These words are most remarkable in the light of their context. Taken apart therefrom, it would be the easiest thing in the world to misunderstand and misinterpret them. Let us, therefore, be patient while we remind ourselves of all that which we have read as a lesson. The words of this text may be sai ...read
|Sermon||Led Out- Led In|
He led them out until they were over against Bethany: and He lifted up His hands, and blessed them. Luke 24:50
After His Resurrection from the dead, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ lingered on the earth for forty days, as though He were almost reluctant to leave it. He lingered, as we have no doubt, for very special purposes of revelation and ...read
|Sermon||Lessons of the Welsh Revival|
Sermon By the Rev. G. Campbell Morgan, D.D.
Delivered in Westminster Chapel
Sunday evening, 25th December, 1904

|Sermon||Life In The Light|
While ye have the light, believe on the light, that ye may become sons of light. John 12:36
These words of our Lord were spoken to critical and unbelieving men, and as their context shows, their intention was that of urging these men to yield to the light which was so soon to be withdrawn. They virtually constituted the last public utterance of ...read
|Sermon||Life Through Death|
I am the good Shepherd; the good Shepherd layeth down His life for the sheep. John 10:11
In this particular statement of the text and in the whole of the passage surrounding it we have an illuminative statement of Christ with regard to His death and its relation to our life. He affirmed that He is the Good Shepherd, and quoted as supreme qualifi ...read
|Sermon||Life: In Flesh, Or In Spirit|
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
I propose this evening to consider the first half of this verse, postponing the consideration of the second half to our next Sunday evening.
Jesus Christ came into the world to ...read
|Sermon||Light And Darkness|
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:4
The text consists of two statements:
First, "In Him was life."
Second, "The life was the light of men."
These are related to a group of ten, with which the seer opens his writing:
"In the beginning was the Word."
"The Word was with God."
"The Word was God."
"The same was in the begi ...read
|Sermon||Like Gods or Godlike|
They that make them shall be like unto them. Psalm 115:8
We shall be like Him. 1 John 3:2
In the Chapter of "Conformity to Type" in his "Natural Law in the Spiritual World," Henry Drummond wrote:
The protoplasm in man has a something in addition to its instincts or its habits. It has a capacity for God. In this capacity for God lies its rece ...read
|Sermon||Love's Proof and Prize|
He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself unto him. John 14:21
I cannot read the sublime things of John without feeling that I am listening to the man who leaned his head upon the bosom of Jesus. They are not set and di ...read
|Sermon||Manifestations Of The Risen Lord|
After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and He manifested Himself on this wise. John 21:1
Our subject is the whole of the twenty-first chapter of John in the light of this first verse. Whatever there is in the story is qualified by this opening statement, and especially by the word which is twic ...read
If any man loveth not the Lord, let him be Anathema Maran atha. 1 Corinthians 16:22
These words do not constitute a malediction. If you are inclined to question the accuracy of that statement notice what the Apostle himself says about them. "The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. If any man loveth not the Lord, let him be Anathema Maran a ...read
|Devotional||Martyrs are Witnesses|
We have come to use the word of such as seal their testimony with their blood. It is a beautiful word for such. When we speak of the "noble army of martyrs," who through flame and fire, through blood and suffering, proved their loyalty to Christ, let us remember that the fires did not make them martyrs. The fires did but reveal them to be martyrs. ...read
|Sermon||Men Looking for Their Lord|
Let your loins be girded about, and your lamps burning; and be ye yourselves like unto men looking for their Lord. Luke 12:35, 36
Every man has some conception of life as a whole, a conception which affects all his attitudes and activities, even though at times unconsciously to himself. This is illustrated by the different figures of which we ma ...read
He that maketh many friends doeth it to his own destruction; but there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
Those of you who are familiar with the rendering of this text in the Authorized Version must notice the very striking change of the revision in the first part of the verse. In the King James Version it reads: "A ...read
|Sermon||My Lambs-My Sheep|
Feed My Lambs... Tend My sheep... Feed My sheep. John 21:15, 16, 17
These words constitute our Lord's final commission to Peter, and as Peter stands ever before us as the representative man, the words were spoken through him to the Church. We need to rescue these words from an altogether too narrow interpretation. It has been said that, on the s ...read
He brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made; for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it; and he called it Nehushtan. 2 Kings 18:4
We at once realize what an astonishing statement the Chronicler makes here concerning king Hezekiah. Hezekiah ascended the throne of Judah in the third year of the reign of Hoshea, ...read
|Devotional||Only Believers Experience the Problem of Pain|
"For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Rom. 8:22).
It may be well that we remind ourselves that pain presents no problem to any man except to the man who believes in God. Pain becomes a problem only in the presence of faith. When, ever and anon, some believer, it may be one whose faith at the m ...read
We have an altar. Hebrews 13:10
The majority of days in the lives of the majority of men are ordinary days. Nevertheless, all men have extraordinary days, red-letter days; and whatever may be the nature of the experience which makes them stand out from all the rest, these are the days that give character to all the rest. Men mark or celebrate su ...read
|Sermon||Our Hope And Inheritance|
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, unto an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:3-5
This is a great doxology. It immediately follows salut ...read
When once the Lord has been seen and crowned there is a progressive operation of the Spirit in the life of the believer. The Spirit reveals the Christ to you in some new aspect as you read His Word, as you meditate upon Him, and the moment you see Christ in some new glory, that vision makes a demand upon you. What are you going to do with it? Answe ...read
