A Stirring

When the soul is led by the Holy Spirit to take a clear view of Jesus in his various offices, how speedily the heart is on fire with love! To see him stooping from his throne to become man, next yielding to suffering to become man’s sympathizing friend, and then bowing to death itself to […]

The Way

There is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved, but Jesus Christ and him crucified. There were not two arks, but one ark: so there are not two Saviours, but one Saviour. There was no other means of salvation except the ark: so there is no plan of deliverance […]

Describing Love

Love to Christ smooths the path of duty, and wings the feet to travel it: it makes the life of sincere devotion. Love has a clear eye; but it can see only one thing, it is blind to every interest but that of its Lord; it seeth things in the light of his glory, and […]

He Has Gone Before Us

Hebrews 6:20 ESV “where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Everything that we needed has been accomplished, achieved, won, & finished.

Splendor of the King

God’s Song

The song that God told Moses to write down in the book of the law (Deuteronomy) to instruct the people. It’s a rather long song and a very important song…with a big ending. It’s a song that tells a story and issues a warning. On this day Moses seems to have introduced the writing technique […]

The Hand of Grace

If I once wandered on a mountain top, and Jesus climbed up and caught me, and put me on his shoulders, and carried me home, I cannot and dare not doubt that He is my Shepherd. If I had belonged to some other sheep-owner, he would not have sought me. And from the fact that […]

Head for the Hill!

John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; Think about the last time that you were infatuated at the feet of Jesus? Is there still a fire that is shut up in your bones? Or have we become content by staying in our tents of complacency down below? […]

Solitude

The old saying is, “Go from nature up to nature’s God;” but it is hard working up hill. The best thing is to go from nature’s God down to nature; and if you once get to nature’s God, and believe Him, and love Him, it is surprising how easy it is to hear music in […]
