… His mercy is a boundless, fathomless, endless ocean!

"You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive--and abundant in mercy to all who call upon You." Psalm 86:5 What a beautiful representation of God is this! How comforting, at the close of another day's cares and troubles, sorrows and sins--to be reminded that our "God is good," and especially that He is

Sin has introduced great misery and universal disorder into the world!

“For hardship does not spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground.  Yet man is born to trouble—as surely as sparks fly upward!”  Job 5:6-7 “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows!”  John 16:33 Whoever considers the manifold calamities to which mankind are exposed in the present state,

Who cares for pebbles—when jewels glitter before him?

“To rule a kingdom, is a nobler matter than to play with marbles.” What, then is the folly of the worldling’s choice, when he prefers to be contending, among men for earthly toys—instead of seeking those eternal treasures above!  How great is the degradation of professing Christians, when their minds are taken up with

Look to the cross, think of the cross, meditate on the cross—and then go and set your affections on the world if you can! A crucified Savior will never be content to have a self-pleasing, self-indulging, worldly-minded people! The Gospel was not meant merely to reside in our intellect, memories, and tongues—but to be

It costs something to be a true Christian.  It will cost us our sins, our self-righteousness, our ease and our worldliness!  A Christian is a walking sermon.  Christians preach far more than a minister does—for they preach all week long!  Nothing is so offensive to Christ, as lukewarmness in religion! According to the men

He left Heaven for us!

"If anyone would come after Me—he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.”  Matthew 16:24 Let the sufferings of our Lord Jesus Christ work us into a gracious willingness to embrace sufferings for His sake, and cheerfully and resolutely to take up His cross and follow Him.  Did Christ suffer,

How is it that we strive so hard to build our nest here?

"Those who use the things of the world—as if not engrossed in them.  For this world in its present form is passing away!" 1 Corinthians 7:31 "The world and its desires pass away—but the man who does the will of God lives forever!"  John 2:17 Oh, how uncertain are all events in this changing

We need more sermons in shoes!

"Live such good lives among the pagans, that . . . they may see your good deeds and glorify God!" 1 Peter 2:12 We need more sermons in shoes--men and women going up and down the roads of life preaching Christianity by their imitation of Christ! The demand of the day is for a

He preached only a few months!

"Herod immediately sent an executioner with orders to bring John's head. The man went and beheaded John in the prison." Mark 6:27-28 Jesus knows how His followers can best serve Him. He sent the apostles out to teach and heal. John the Baptist, however--He permitted to be seized, to languish in prison, and to

The sanctifying power of the cross!

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world!”  Galatians 6:14 It may be profitable to yet linger a little while at the cross—that we may again survey its glory, and feel its soul-subduing power.  In

We need to be on our guard against Solomonism religion!

"As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God.”  I Kings 11:4 The trouble was all in Solomon’s heart!  It is the heart which needs watching and keeping with all diligence.  The heart must be wholly devoted in its

O eternity!

“They will go away to eternal punishment—but the righteous to eternal life!”   Matthew 25:46 The soul is immortal—it can never cease to be. It is destined by the immutable decree of God, to exist eternally.  O eternity!  Who can conceive your dimensions!  Forever!  Who can grasp the mighty idea!  To exist forever—solemn consideration!  Millions
