Year-Ending Alleluia!

Alleluia!  Revelation 10:1 Thou didst begin the year, O my soul, with a Hosanna, imploring the Lord’s blessing; canst thou now conclude it with an Alleluia?  Surely thou canst celebrate the praise of a gracious and loving God.  Take a review of the year past; hast thou not had many mercies?  Have not the eyes […]

Tables of the Heart

Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.  2 Corinthians 3:3. The image is beautiful and instructing; “The epistle of Christ written, not in […]

The Judgment Seat

We must all appear before the judgment-seat of Christ.  2 Corinthians 5:10 And are there scoffers, who madly walk after their own lusts, and question the coming of the Lord?  The hour hastens when infidelity shall doubt no more:  “The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, […]

One Body in Christ

We, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.  Romans 12:5 O the blessed communion of saints; one member has the benefit of all the other members’ gifts, prayers, and ministrations.  One prays for all, and all pray for one.  What one has, the other enjoys also.  It may […]

Born of God’s Word

By the grace of God I am what I am.  1 Corinthians 15:10.  Born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God.  As new-born babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.  1 Peter 1:23;  2:2. What made the wonderful difference between Saul the Pharisee […]

Pour Out Your Heart

Pour out your heart before God.  Psalm 62:8.  I have poured out my soul before the Lord.  1 Samuel 1:13. What a different view do these lively texts give of praying, when opposed to the usual expression of saying our prayers—saying what our books and our parents teach us—saying what we have been long used […]

Jesus Shall Save His People

And thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins.  Matthew 1:21. Sin is the deadliest foe we have; it cast our first parents out of paradise; it defaced God’s image in man; it brought pain, sickness, and death into the world, and a spiritual death into the soul; […]

A Separate People

For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight?  Is it not in that thou goest with us?  So shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.  Exodus 33:16. Reader, do you adopt the […]

Justification Before Works

Therefore we conclude, that a man is justified by faith, without the deeds of the law.  Romans 3:28.  Ye see how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.  James 2:24 Both these apostles wrote by inspiration.  St. Paul answers this question both affirmatively and negatively: that  “a man is justified […]
