Overcoming The World

“Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:5  A man must either overcome the world—or be overcome by it. To overcome the world is to be saved—to be overcome by it is to be lost. He, then, who does not believe that Jesus is the Son of God does not and…

Contentment and Submission for the Christian

Will any, or will I, pretend to teach the Most High knowledge, seeing he is excellent in all his working, and perfect in all his ways? Then, since I cannot direct him, why am not I submissive to his disposal? So, Lord, as from present appearances, future contingencies cannot be discerned—it is my duty, and shall be my study, to be WHOLLY,…

The Believer’s School and Lesson

It is in the successive stages of his experience, that the believer sees more distinctly, and adores more profoundly, and grasps more firmly — the finished righteousness of Christ. And what is the school in which he learns his nothingness, his poverty, his utter destitution? The school of deep and sanctified affliction. In no other school is it learned, and under no…

The Offense of the Cross

Did you know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is an offense to the natural religious man of this age? The message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified was not a message that was received in our Lord’s day nor is it a message that men by nature desire to hear or receive in our day. The Apostle Paul quoted from Isaiah…

Let My Beloved Come Into His Garden

Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits. (Song of Solomon 4:16) In this chapter, our Lord Jesus is describing the beauty of His bride. He tells her that her garden is sweet to His smell and her fountain…

The Best Sermons

The best sermons are the sermons which are most full of Christ. A sermon without Christ . . . it is an awful, a horrible thing; it is an empty well; it is a cloud without rain; it is a tree twice dead, plucked by the roots. It is an abominable thing to give men stones for bread, and scorpions for eggs, and yet they do…

He Said A Lot Of Good Things, But . . .

How many times have we heard someone make this statement after listening to a preacher or reading an article? I was reading an article in our local newspaper this morning in which a person made some statements concerning God and how good he is and how people should depend on him and seek him etc. This person finished their article with this sentence; “I can…

Faith Is Not Our Savior

Faith is not our Savior. It was not faith that was born at Bethlehem and died on Golgotha for us. It was not faith that loved us, and gave itself for us; that bore our sins in its own body on the tree; that died and rose again for our sins. Faith is one thing — the Savior is another. Faith is…

Can Christ Love One Like Me?

“That you. . . . may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which surpasses knowledge.” Ephesians 3:17-19 You may wonder sometimes—and it is a wonder that will fill heaven itself with anthems of eternal praise—how such a glorious Jesus can ever look down from…
