And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone
      And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone. John 8:29. OUR Lord's was a solitary life. He mingled indeed with man, He labored for man, He associated with man, He loved man; but He "trod the twine press alone, and of the people th ... read more

      CHRIST'S SYMPATHY TO WEARY PILGRIMS by Octavius Winslow (1808 - 1878) WHAT A BOUNDLESS, FATHOMLESS OCEAN! Eternal love moved the heart of Jesus to relinquish heaven for earth—a diadem for a cross—the robe of divine majesty for the garment of our n ... read more

Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in him
      Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5. WHEN we consider the convolutions of life's future, how varied and undulating the path! It resembles in its windings and its changes the serpentine course of ... read more

Consider Jesus– as Afflicted
      "He was afflicted." –Isa. 53:7 For this Jesus was born. His mission to our world involved it. In the righteous arrangement of God, sin and suffering, even as holiness and happiness, are one and inseparable. He came to destroy the works of the devil; ... read more

Consider Jesus– as Forsaken by God
      "My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?" –Matt. 27:46 My soul! was it not enough that your Lord should be forsaken of man in His sorrow? Was it essential to the accomplishment of your salvation, and to your support and comfort in seasons of soul d ... read more

Consider Jesus– as Forsaken by Man

Consider Jesus– as Tempted by Satan
      "Then was Jesus led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil." –Matt. 4:1 It is a consolatory reflection to the child of God that, since the temptations of Satan constitute so severe, yet so essential a part of his spiritual tr ... read more

Consider Jesus– as Without Deceit
      "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." 1 Peter 2:22 Purer than the purest crystal, more transparent than the brightest sun, was the character of Jesus. It needed but the visual organ purged from the blinding and distorting effec ... read more

Consider Jesus– in Bereavement
      "Jesus wept." –John 6:35 With what baptism of suffering was not Jesus baptized? What cup of sorrow did not He drink? Well may He ask, "Are you able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized wit ... read more

Consider Jesus– in Intercessory Prayer
      "I pray for them." –John 17:9 There is no part of Christ's Priestly office more soothing to the sick, tried, and suffering believer, than His intercessory supplication on their behalf. To know that we are borne upon the prayerful hearts of our fello ... read more

Consider Jesus– in Loneliness
      "And shall leave me alone." –John 16:32 Jesus, for the most part, lived a lonely and solitary life. It was of necessity so. There was much in His mission, more in His character, still more in His person, that would baffle the comprehension, and estra ... read more

Consider Jesus– in Lowliness of Birth
      "Is not this the carpenter's son?"--Matthew 13:55 What a remarkable fact in the history of Jesus does this question, asked with mingled surprise and contempt, betray! It presents Him in a point of light in which, perhaps, few have paused to study Hi ... read more

Consider Jesus– in Obedience to Divine Law

Consider Jesus– in Obedience to Human Law
      "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's." –Matt. 22:21 The obedience of Jesus, whether natural or moral--whether yielded to a divine or a human law--was, like all that He did, worthy of Himself. In no instance did He exhibit anything appro ... read more

Consider Jesus– in Soul-trouble
      "Now My soul is deeply troubled." –John 12:27 In this lay our Lord's greatest suffering--His soul-sorrow. Compared with this, the lingering, excruciating tortures of the cross--the extended limbs, the quivering nerves, the bleeding wounds, the burni ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Anticipation of Death
      "Father, save Me from this hour." –John 12:27 There were some expressions of feeling in our Lord's life which can only be accounted for on the ground of His perfect humanity. Such, for example, as His apparent shrinking from suffering and death. And ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Avoidance of Offence
      "Lest we should offend." –Matt. 17:27 How truly was our Lord Jesus 'harmless' because He was 'undefiled.' In Him was no sin. That His Gospel should have been an offence to the scribes and Pharisees, and that His cross was an offence to the world, ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Elevation of Rank
      "King of kings, and Lord of lords." –Revelation 19:16 The twofold nature of Jesus brought Him into the closest personal relation to, and sympathy with, the two great divisions of the race--the Commonalty and the Nobility--and thus He becomes a prope ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Exercise of Influence
      "Be followers of me, even as I am of Christ." –1 Cor. 11:1 INFLUENCE is the subject which these words suggest for our present meditation--the influence of Christ reflected in the influence of the Christian. "Follow me, as I follow Christ." The powe ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Possession of Wealth
      "He was RICH." –2 Cor. 8:9 Rank and wealth may exist apart from each other. In Jesus they were combined. He could not be the Divinest, and not be the Richest Being in the universe; the Creator, and not the Owner of all worlds. Moreover, He could say, ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Power of His Resurrection
      "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection." –Phil. 3:10 Is there not some danger of lingering too exclusively at the cross, to the exclusion of the grave of Jesus? In other words, do we give the subject of Christ's RESURRECTION that pl ... read more

Consider Jesus– in the Straitness of Poverty
      "He became poor." –2 Cor. 8:9 The wealth of Jesus, of which we have already spoken, was essential; His poverty, of which we are now to speak, was willingly assumed. "He became poor." By an act of unparalleled beneficence, He emptied Himself of His ... read more

Consider Jesus– Our Paymaster
      "He was oppressed." –Isa. 53:7 The Hebrew word here rendered "oppressed," signifies to exact, or, to demand payment. It is so rendered in the following passage--"The creditor shall not EXACT of his neighbor, nor of his brother, in the year of rele ... read more

Divine Acceptance
      "I will accept you with your sweet savor."--Ezek. 20:41 There is not an essential truth of the Gospel more dimly perceived or imperfectly estimated, and yet not one more clearly revealed or more unspeakably precious, than the doctrine of God's acceptan ... read more

Divine Love Questioned
      "I have loved you, says the Lord. Yet you say, How have you loved us?"--Mal. 1:2 Was ever baser, darker, ingratitude than this? Study it, O my soul, for have you not, in spite of the countless evidences of your Lord's love to you, often doubted its rea ... read more
