A Christmas feast on Christmas-day

“My soul follows hard after You, Your right hand upholds me.”  The Letters of Ruth Bryan, 1805-1860 Dearest Friend, Is your heart with my heart this morning? If so, you will join me in following hard after Him who is our glory and joy, and who is the substance of every type.  In finding

The way to do good is to amuse people!

The way to do good is to amuse people! A great change has taken place in the last forty years.  A quantity of church work is continually being carried on both by clergymen and laymen, which, however well-meant, can hardly be called Christian—and in reality has a painful tendency to throw true Christian work

The Priority of Thanksgiving

The Priority of Thanksgiving Hebrews13:15-17: “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

Psalm 103

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name.  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies

Nothing less than a LIVING Christ will do for us!

He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” I Corinthians 15:4 If your faith stops at the cross—it misses the blessing of the fullest revealing of Christ!  You need a Savior who not merely two thousand years ago went to death to redeem you—but one who also is alive to walk

… Sola Scriptura!

Next to praying, there is nothing so important in practical religion as Bible-reading. By reading that Book, we may learn . . . what to believe, what to be, what to do, how to live with comfort, and how to die in peace. The Bible alone is "able to make a man wise unto

… The just shall live by faith! – Part 2

… That miracle of Divine grace wrought in the soul Regeneration is that miracle of Divine grace wrought in the soul . . . which enlists the affections Godward, which brings the human will into subjection to the Divine, and which produces a real and radical change in the life. That change is from

… The just shall live by faith! Part 1

As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, of all the great doctrines of the Bible that have now been systematized, I would argue that if one is to be emphasized in our current day, it would be the Doctrine of Justification whereby the believing sinner has not only his sins forgiven but

… 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
