       A glorious throne, set on high from the beginning, is the place of our sanctuary. Jeremiah 17:12 Jeremiah's prophecies were uttered when the religious and moral conditions of the ancient people of God had become idolatrous and profligate. They are full of the sorrow of his heart, and yet thrill with vehement denunciation of sin. Notwithstanding
SermonSecret and Revealed Things
       The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but the things that are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29 These words contain one of the most important principles for the conditioning of all life, and one which constitutes a final anchorage for faith in the midst of
SermonShining Faces
       It came to pass, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tables of the testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the Mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone by reason of His speaking with him. Exodus 34:29 This verse has often attracted the preacher, and naturally so. Almost invariably the attraction has been
SermonShort Beds and Narrow Coverings
       For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it; and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it. Isaiah 28:20 This is the language of a fine satire. At this point the prophet, burning in anger, indulged in sarcasm. It was caustic and severe, but behind it throbbed the great heart of the man who was carrying the bu
       Sin is lawlessness. 1 John 3:4 Lust when it hath conceived beareth sin. James 1:15 In these two brief passages we have inclusive statements of the nature and the genesis of sin. I am proposing to consider this subject in the most personal and immediate way, desiring to discuss the question of sin in the individual life, as to what it really i
SermonSin, Sorrow, Silence
      Scripture: Psalm 32 Whoever wrote this Psalm knew much of spiritual experience on ordinary human levels. It is difficult sometimes to understand how some of these psalms were written so long before the coming of Christ. They seem to have been written by men who were almost as familiar as we are with all the great facts of the grace of God, as that
SermonSongs in Prison
       ... about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns unto God, and the prisoners were listening to them; and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison-house were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened; and every one's bands were loosed. Acts 16:25, 26 This is an arresting and wonderful st
SermonSour Grapes
       In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But everyone shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge. Jeremiah 31:29; 30 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have
SermonSpare Thyself
       From that time began Jesus to show unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. And Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, Be it far from Thee, Lord: this shall never be unto Thee. But He turned, and aid unto Pete
SermonSpiritual Leprosy
       And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing. Leviticus 14:1, 2 Leprosy remains until this hour more or less a mystery to medical science. In the New Year's Honors List a name included was that of Dr. George Turner, now Sir George Turner, whose story is one of splendid heroism and of pathe
SermonSubmission And Responsibility
       I also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh. Matthew 8:9 All the scenes of New Testament history lie in the atmosphere of Roman government. Its earliest stories are connected with the decree that went forth from Caesar Augustus that the world should b
SermonSuffer the Children
       Suffer the little children to come unto Me; forbid them not: for of such is the Kingdom of God. Mark 10:14 That is the Magna Charta of the children. Its words are of the simplest which ever fell from the lips of our beloved Lord. We are never able to recite them, I think I may venture to say, without feeling some thrill of the tenderness of His
SermonThe Accomplished Mystery
       It is finished. John 19:30 When I approach the Cross of our Lord I feel increasingly that I am beaten, baffled; its mystery is so vast, so wonderful that it is impossible to understand it. With that increased consciousness of its mystery there grows in the heart an increased sense of its necessity, its perfection, and its glory. "It is finished
SermonThe All-Sufficient Grace
       My grace is sufficient for thee. 2 Corinthians 12:9 This phrase forms part of a story in the life of one man. It is, however, a great word, revealing a profound philosophy of life, unfolding the deepest truth concerning God; in the knowledge of which life finds the place of peace and rest; and becomes powerful and influential in service. It is r
SermonThe Ascension
       Now this, He ascended, what is it but that He also descended into the lower parts of the earth. He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things. Ephesians 4:9, 10 These words are placed within brackets both in the Authorized and Revised Versions, and rightly so, for they constitute a dist
SermonThe Atonement
       You, being in time past alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works, yet now hath He reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and unreproveable before Him. Colossians 1:21, 22 There are two brief declarations in this Colossian letter which may be said to embody its teaching. The first i
SermonThe Authority Of Jesus
       And it came to pass, when Jesus ended these words, the multitudes were astonished at His teaching: for He taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes. Matthew 7:28, 29 These words occur at the close of the manifesto of the King. They chronicle for us the fact of the impression produced upon multitudes who had been listening to
SermonThe Beginning of Sin
      I do not propose to take any one verse in this chapter as text. It is complete in itself for all that it is intended to teach, and it is required as a whole if we are to understand that teaching. Of course it is impossible now to deal with all the details of this story, and for the purpose of this meditation it is not at all necessary that we shoul
SermonThe Burning Of Heart
       Was not our heart burning within us, while He spake to us in the way, while He opened to us the scriptures? Luke 24:32 Burning of heart. That, I take it, is the supreme need of the Church today. We have principles, but we very largely lack passion. I believe that our understanding of Jesus Christ is more spacious and correct than ever before in
SermonThe Children's Playground in the City of God
       And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof. Zechariah 8:5 One almost expects to hear someone say, "How Extremely shocking!" Some people would probably be surprised to know that the Bible says anything about children playing. This verse not only speaks of them playing, but surprises our prejudices
