A Common Yet Subtle Sin by Samuel Logan Brengle

Sin So Deadly THERE IS A SIN which a Catholic priest once declared that no one had ever confessed to him sin so deadly that the wrath of God comes upon men because of it; a sin so common that probably everybody has at some time been guilty of it; a sin so gross in the sight of God as to be classed w...

A Praying Ministry Successful by E.M. Bounds

THE PREACHER THAT prays indeed puts God into the work. God does not come into the preacher's work as a matter of course or on general principles, but he comes by prayer and special urgency. That God will be found of us in the day that we seek him with the whole heart is as true of the preacher as of... Read More

A Promise For Every Day by 
George W. Truett

Search Ourselves "AS THY DAYS, so shall thy strength be" (Deuteronomy 33:25). Whenever we turn the glasses within, and search ourselves thoroughly, how pained we always are at the meager progress that we are making in the better life. We look around us and see certain personalities who are growing a... Read More

Alexander Stuart by David Smithers

WHAT ADAM LOST IN the garden, through, Christ can be found on our knees! Clearly Alexander Moody Stuart was no stranger to this blessed truth. Day and night he enjoyed the paradise of fellowship with the Father through prayer. Agonizing, fervent prayer was his constant habit. "He often seemed to wre... Read More

Branded by Devotion to a Task by Leonard Ravenhill

THE MARK OF PAUL’S inward crucifixion were plainly evident. First of all, Paul was branded by devotion to a task. If, as tradition says, Paul was only four feet six inches in height, then he was the greatest dwarf that ever lived. He out-paced, out-prayed, and out-passioned all his contemporaries. O...

Elisha, Tarry Here, I Pray Thee by F.B. Meyer

ELISHA, TARRY HERE, I pray thee. 2 Kings ii. 2, 4, 6. Thrice Elijah spoke thus to his friend and disciple, to test him.

Free Through Suffering by 
Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

One Of The Greatest Testimonies "THOU HAST ENLARGED me when I was in distress" Psalm 4:1. This is one of the grandest testimonies ever given by man to the moral government of God. It is not a man's thanksgiving that he has been set free from suffering. It is a thanksgiving that he has been set free ... Read More

Phoney Repentance by Roger Ellsworth

“SO IT WAS WHEN Ahab heard these words, that he tore his clothes and put on sackcloth on his body, and fasted and lay in sackcloth, and went about mourning. And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, ‘See how Ahab has humbled himself before Me? 1 will not bring the calamity in his... Read More

Robert M'Cheyne by David Smithers

The Church And Suffering by brother Greg

Apostolic Power OH! FOR A CALL BACK to apostolic preaching, apostolic power, apostolic praying. We cry out ‘I want apostolic power’ but do we really? Do we want to suffer as they did? Do we want to crown our offering with a tortured bloody martyrdom as they did? Pentecost has a cost. If we are going... Read More

The Cross by 
John Follette

Finding Our Cross EVERY MAN WILL FIND his discipline, and every man will find his cross. All Christians are not disciples. When He first introduces the cross, it is to Christians. Jesus Christ never places a cross on anybody. It is in our volitional Power of will to choose. He doesn't lay a cross on... Read More

The Great Change - Conversion by C.H. Spurgeon

CAN YOU NOT remember, dearly-beloved, that day of days, that best and brightest of hours, when first you saw the Lord, lost your burden, received the roll of promise, rejoiced in full salvation, and went on your way in peace? When I was in the hand of the Holy Spirit, under conviction of sin, I had ... Read More

The Imitation Of Christ by Thomas A Kempis

Forsake Thyself SON, FORSAKE THYSELF and thou shalt find me. Stand without choice and without all manner of self and thou shalt win ever; for anon, as thou hast resigned thyself and not taken thyself again, then shall be thrown to thee more grace. Lord, how oft shall I resign myself and wherein shal... Read More

The Impotent Church by Bill Bright

America Under Siege MOST CHRISTIANS IN American have lost their sense of a holy God. They do not understand His divine attributes of love, power, wisdom, sovereignty and grace.

The Meaning Of Faith by Charles Price

The Collapse Of Faith WITHIN THE MEMORY OF most of us is the time when both the Church and the world seemed to possess certain of the elements of faith. With the dying of the Victorian era the Church seemed to be impregnated with the spirit of evangelism. The great preachers of Christendom thundered... Read More

The Speaking Voice by A.W. Tozer

THE BIBLE IS THE written word of God, and because it is written it is confined and limited by the necessities of ink and paper and leather. The Voice of God, however, is alive and free as the sovereign God is free. `The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.' The life is in... Read More

Why is the Church Powerless? by William MacDonald

SPIRITUALLY WE ARE in a shocking condition. The status of many local fellowships is bad news, and deteriorating by the minute. We have become more proud of the number of successful businessmen in our churches than of the number of men of God. The dollar has become our master. The claims of the busin... Read More

William Booth by David Smithers

ONE OF THE MOST effective weapons in General Booth's arsenal was fervent prayer. It was not unusual for Booth to hold "an all night of prayer" when he came to preach the Word of God. People would flood the altars every where he went. "The power of God was wonderfully manifest in the meetings . . . p... Read More
