Fallen Man, Part 2

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Sinners are, by nature, earthly, unspiritual, and demonic (Jas 3.15). That really shows in their response to gospel light. Jesus said of His enemies, “If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin, but now they have no cloak for their sin” (Jn 15.22). Their reaction to Him and His message brought into full view the hideousness of what was there in their hearts all along.

Preaching to Himself

Thomas Murphy

"Thou, therefore, which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself?" is the scriptural rebuke for neglecting this duty. When the preacher delivers the message of God, he should never separate himself from his audience as if he were not addressed. He needs the communications of grace just as much as his congregation does.

Longing for the Exaltation of Christ

Albert N. Martin

True believers who are in a healthy spiritual state eagerly await, earnestly desire, and love the return of Christ because they long to see the public and universal acknowledgement of the true identity and position of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Electing Love

Robert Murray McCheyne

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain (John 15:16).

This is very humbling, and at the same time, a very blessed word to the true disciple.

Whitefield by Spurgeon

Charles H. Spurgeon

"See, it is Mr. Whitefield." Ah! There is the man of the age, depend upon it, that man all black, charged with crimes that Sodom never knew … this man here that is abused, that is laughed at, that is mocked; this is the man who is somebody.

Piety Increased by the Devotional reading of the Scriptures

Thomas Murphy

Ministers are liable to get into the habit of studying the word of God simply that they may be the better prepared to teach others. It is all important, however, that they should do more than this. They should not read the Bible merely for others, nor simply as a book of science, or history, or geography, or profound wisdom only, but that they may also bring it home and apply it to themselves.

Fallen Man, Part 1

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

“Lord, what is man!” (Psa 8.4). Originally, man was an excellent creature, but since the fall, he is so depraved! It is a wonder that the great God should still pay any attention to him.

Satan’s “Conversions”

Robert Murray McCheyne

"When the Spirit of God is really working in the heart, he makes the man look to a pierced Christ. Wherever he goes, this is the prominent object in his eye – Christ whom he has pierced. Satan would make a man look anywhere rather than to Christ.

Pray Without Ceasing

John Gerhard

The advantage of prayer is so great that it cannot be expressed. For what the heart is to the living man, prayer is to the soul; what rest is to the weary, what joy is to the mourner, what gold is to the needy, what strength is to the weak, what the muscles to the body, what the breath and blood to the life – all that, to the troubled soul, is prayer.

In What Light We Ought Chiefly to Regard the Saviour

J.C. Ryle

(Lucas 4:17-22)

It is right and good to reverence Him as very God. It is well to know Him as Head over all things—the mighty Prophet,—the Judge of all,—the King of kings. But we must not rest here, if we hope to be saved. We must know Jesus as the Friend of the poor in spirit, the Physician of the diseased heart, the Deliverer of the soul in bondage.
