The Christian life

Joshua 1:1,9 The character and life of Joshua gives us a striking illustration of how the promises of God are to be received and enjoyed. The apostle Paul stated, (II.Tim. 4:6) “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I…

Evil, its nature

Mathew 8:28,34 In these two demon-possessed men we have some of the most terrible and heart-humbling revelations that we have in all the Bible. Look at evil as personified in these wholly-possessed ones. Evil is Closely Connected with us. These men were possessed with demons. We may rest assure that there are tortures appointed to…

Who are you following?

John 1:35,42 It is safer to obey than to govern, foolish hearts would rather lead than follow, “and they followed Jesus.” Let me say this, a good man is always taking opportunity to intrust Christ to others. Thus good and faithful ministers will continually be inviting their disciples to Christ. John was standing, and two…

Where is our faith?

Are we living the triumphant life?

Our Christian walk

Psalms 119:33,38 The Christian Life ais a walk that implies a Journey. Here we have no continuing city; we are pilgrims and strangers on the earth: sojourners with the Lord. When God’s people settled in the land of promise, their business was not to give themselves up to the enjoyment of the world, but to…

We are in the world.

John17:11,21 They are Taken Out of the World according to (v.6),“The men which Thou gavest Me out of the world,” The world as such, is in a state of ruined mass, lying in the lap of the evil one; being coddled by the illusions and guided by the false principles of the god of this…

The reward of love

John 14:21,24 The words of the Lord Jesus Christ are as great as His unsearchable nature. “God is Love,” and Jesus is the perfect manifestation of that love. “He that loveth Me,” He says, “shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him and will manifest Myself to him.” (Ac.7:55) “But he, being…

Are we having heart trouble?

John14:1,4s There were sever reasons why the hearts of His disciples became troubled and frighted at this time, Let us “Look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the…

God’s Love

Romans 5:1,10 “The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost,” which is given unto us“ (Rom.5:5). The love of God is poured out, diffused filling, quickening, and invigorating all our powers and faculties, “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy…
