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

A man who hears many sermons

"Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long!" Psalm 119:97 It is well to meditate upon the things of God--because it is only by pondering the Scriptures, that we get the real nutriment out of them. A man who hears many sermons--is not necessarily well-instructed in the faith. We may read so many religious books

The personal attractions of Jesus!

“Yes, He is altogether lovely!  This is my Beloved—and this is my Friend!”  Song of Songs 5:16 The personal attractions of Jesus are all inviting and irresistible!  His love wins us.  His glory charms us.  His beauty attracts us.  His sympathy soothes us.  His gentleness subdues us.  His faithfulness inspires us.  He is the

If you admit a pig into your parlor among your friends

“Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful—but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life!” Revelation 21:27 If we do not exactly know the particulars of what Heaven is—then we know to a certainty what it is not.  We are sure

Hold your hand in this fire!

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account!” Hebrews 4:13 Take heed of what men call secret sins.  There are only too many who continue in wickedness, because as they think, no one knows how wicked

Modern church machinery! How shall I follow in His steps?

How shall I follow in His steps?  The first requisite is a personal relationship to Him.  I cannot wear the loveliness of Jesus--until I drink deep of the forgiveness of Jesus.  From the cross where He has saved me--I set out on the pilgrim-road of imitation.  It is necessary, also, that love for Him

Modern church machinery!

Friends! The churches have no need for the modern machinery which has supplanted the simplicity of faith.  I truly believe, that if the Lord swept the church committees and schemes out of the universe, we would be better without them.  I hope the church will soon say, like David in Saul’s clanking armor, “I

Sanctifying grace, as well as pardoning mercy!

“You shall call His name Jesus—for He shall save His people from their sins!” Matthew 1:21 Jesus!  Precious name, how sweet it is!  How well it befits Him who bears it—and how glorious is the salvation which He accomplishes!  Misery is the natural consequence of sin.  Everything that God enjoins is good—and everything that He
