He Who Makes Haste With His Feet Errs

George Lawson

Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who makes haste with his feet errs (Proverbs 19:2).

The want of that knowledge which we need for our direction through life, is very pernicious; for we are in a dangerous world, full of pits and snares; and the man that has not eyes in his head, must fall, sooner or later, into destruction.

The Day of Rest

W.J. Seaton

The remembrance that the people of God will one day be in heaven with God is a remembrance that should often be brought to mind as we still live on this earth. After the Lord God had made the heavens and the earth and all things that they contain in six days, we are told that He then, “rested on the seventh day.” (Genesis 2:2). Not only did God rest on the seventh day, but He “declared” the fact, so to speak, for, we read in the next verse that “blessed” and “sanctified” that seventh day of rest.

Groaning and Travailing

Albert N. Martin

Romans 8. In laying out the privileges of those who are adopted into the family of God by grace, on the basis of the work of Christ, the Apostle has just declared that all such adopted ones are given the spirit of adoption, and are given the spirit of heirs and joint heirs with Christ. Then he makes a qualifying statement at the end of verse 17, “If so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him.”

A Living Example of the Gospel

Thomas Murphy

This places the necessity of his being an eminently godly man in a very strong light. The solemn charge is imposed upon him of demonstrating by his daily walk and conversation the truth and the power of the doctrines of the gospel. From this responsibility no possible argument will release him.

Thomas Manton on Jude 21 (Part 3)

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Love and hope are connected. Those who “keep themselves in the love of God” will necessarily be “looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life,” that is, looking for Christ’s second coming when we shall have this mercy. This is the Christian hope. Why are love and hope linked this way?

Why Do Believers Await the Coming of the Lord?

Albert N. Martin

We’re asking the question: why do true believers who are in a healthy, spiritual state eagerly await, earnestly desire and love the return of Christ?

Prayer for Ministers I

James Smith

The ministers of Christ NEED the prayers of their people, their work is arduous, their weakness is great, their foes are furious, and their hindrances are many. They DESIRE the prayers of their people — for they know that prayer has power with God, and brings down great and invaluable blessings.

Thomas Manton on Jude 21 (Part 2)

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Observation 3. Love is the grace that most needs keeping. It is the most prone to decay (Matt 24.12; Rev 2.4). It is the grace we can least spare because it produces faithfulness. Toward God, love is the root of all affections—anger, hate, grief, hope, desire, delight, contrition, and so forth (2 Cor 5.14; 1 Jn 5.3). “Faith worketh by love” (Gal 5.6). Faith receives grace; love exercises it.
