“Thou Art My Servant; I Have Chosen Thee”

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee (Isa 41:9).

If we have received the grace of God in our hearts, its practical effect has been to make us God’s servants. We may be unfaithful servants, we certainly are unprofitable ones, but yet, blessed be his name, we are his servants, wearing his livery, feeding at his table, and obeying his commands.

God Uses His People in Soulwinning

Charles H. Spurgeon

‘And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go’ (John 11.43, 44).

In many things our Lord Jesus stands alone as a worker. No other can unite his voice with the fiat which says, ‘Lazarus, come forth.’ Yet in certain points of gracious operation the Master associates his servants with him, so that when Lazarus has come forth he says to them, ‘Loose him, and let him go.’

To Whom Do We Pray

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up (Psa 5.3).

To whom do we pray? God, of course. It may seem such a basic topic that you think it hardly justifies more than a moment’s consideration, but patient reflection and meditation, in the light of Scripture and with a knowledge of church history, prove otherwise.

An Eager Anticipation

Albert N. Martin

In true conversion, sinners not only turn from their idols—whatever those idols may be—and unto God, but they turn with a disposition of commitment to make His will the rule of their lives, with joy.

Examining Our Repentance

Thomas Watson

These are the blessed fruits and products of repentance. If we can find these in our souls, we have arrived at that repentance which is never to be repented of (2Co 7:10).

Pious Sins of the Tongue

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him? —Job 13:7.

“Pious sins of the tongue” is my attempt, I trust, to capture the incongruity of talk about God that is unworthy of Him and of His truth, and therefore, that has spiritually deadly effect toward others, especially when they lack discernment, but even then the hearers do not wholly escape injury.

The incarnation of Christ is a most extraordinary and amazing affair. It is wonderful indeed that the eternal Son of God should become man; that He should be born of a pure virgin without any concern of man in it; that this should be brought about by the power of the Holy Ghost in a way unseen, imperceptible, and unknown, signified by His overshadowing; and all this in order to effect the most wonderful work that ever was done in the world: the redemption and salvation of men. —John Gill
When “the Word became flesh,” He did not cease for a moment to be God. No doubt He was pleased to veil His divinity and to hide His power, and more especially so at some seasons. He emptied Himself of external marks of glory and was called “the carpenter.” But He never laid His divinity aside. God cannot cease to be God. It was as the God-man that He lived, suffered, died, and rose again. —J. C. Ryle
Are you able to rejoice in tribulations? Are you happy in spite of the world? Do you have contentment? Are you independent of the world and all its noise and bustle, its empty show, and all that may happen in it? Do you have a place of rest and peace and quiet—a calm, undisturbed joy that the world can neither give nor take away? If you have these things, “great grace” is upon you—the grace of God in Jesus Christ.
—David Martyn Lloyd Jones
