This is... Read More

A Motto for the Evangelist

2 Corinthians 10:16. "To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you".

The gospel is a traveler; and the preacher of the gospel must be a tr... Read More

The Alabaster Box

It is very needful to bear in mind, in this day of busy doing and restless activity, that God looks at everything from one stand point, measures everything by one rule, tries everything by one touchstone, and that touchstone, that rule, that standpoint is Christ. He values things just so far as they... Read More

The Olivet Discourse Part 2C – Christendom: The Talents

Matthew 25:14-30.

The Olivet Discourse Part 3 – The Judgment

Matthew 25:31-46. There is something peculiarly painful in the thought of having so frequently to come in collision with the generally received opinions of the professing Church.
