Humility And Holiness
      "Which say, Stand by thyself;-,for I am holier than thou. " -Isa. 65: 5. We speak of the Holiness movement in our times, and praise God for it. We hear a great deal of seekers after holiness and professors of holiness, of holiness teaching and holiness ... read more

Humility And Sin
      "Sinners, of whom I am chief."-1 Tim.1:15 Humility is often identified with penitence and contrition. As a consequence, there appears to be no way of fostering humility but by keeping the soul occupied with its sin. We have learned, I think, that humil ... read more

Humility: The Glory of the Creature
      When God created the universe, it was with the objective of making those he created partakers of His perfection and blessedness, thus showing forth the glory of His love and wisdom and power. God desired to reveal himself in and through His creatures by c ... read more

I Am The True Vine
      All earthly things are the shadows of heavenly realities—the expression, in created, visible forms, of the invisible glory of God. The Life and the Truth are in Heaven; on earth we have figures and shadows of the heavenly truths. When Jesus says: “I am th ... read more

I go unto the Father!
      ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my Name, that will I do.’—John xiv. 12, 13. AS ... read more

I speak about that subjection to the spirit of the world…
      And how is it now that these three great manifestations of the spirit of the world are in the church? I do not even speak of the power of the flesh as seen in the terrible reign of drink and lust in the midst of our modern Christian civilization. But I do ... read more

If a revival is to come… the great deep will have to be broken up.
      If a revival is to come, greater, deeper, broader than any that has yet been, one great part of its power will be in the conviction it will bring of the sin and shame of all the carnal ease, and comfort, and self-indulgence in which we have been living, w ... read more

If two agree
      ‘Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them.— ... read more

If we ask according to His will
      ‘And this is the boldness which we have toward Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us. And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of Him.’—I John v. 14, 15. ... read more

If Ye Abide
      If Ye Abide in Me, and My Words, Abide in You, Ask Whatsoever Ye Will, and it Shall be Done Unto You—John 15.7 The reason the Vine and its branches are such a true parable of the Christian life is that all nature has one source and breathes one s ... read more

If ye abide in me
      ‘If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you.’—John xv. 7. IN all God’s intercourse with us, the promise and its conditions are inseparable. If we fulfil the conditions, He fulfils the prom ... read more

In Affliction and Trial
      "Every branch that bearest fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit."-JOHN 15:2. IN THE whole plant world there is not a tree to be found so specially suited to the image of man in his relation to God, as the vine. There is none of whic ... read more

In Daily Life
      "He that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?"-1 John 4:20. What a solemn thought, that our love to God will be measured by our everyday intercourse with men and the love it displays; and that our love to ... read more

In my Name
      ‘Whatsoever ye shall ask in my Name, that will I do. If ye shall ask me anything in my Name, that will I do. That whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my Name, He may give it you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, If ye shall ask anything of the Father, ... read more

in our prayer for revival… we must test ourselves
      Unless in our prayer for revival we are ready to test the church, and to test ourselves, by this touchstone, our prayer will be in vain. With Christ his not being of the world meant everything. He proved it by separating himself from its sin, by exposing ... read more

In spirit and truth
      ‘The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be His worshippers. God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth.’—John iv. 23, 24 ... read more

In Stillness of Soul

In the Disciples of Jesus
      "Let him that is chief among you be as he that doth serve." -Luke 22:26. We have studied humility in the person and teaching of Jesus; let us now look for it in the circle of His chosen companions---the twelve apostles. If, in the lack of it we find in ... read more

In the Life of Jesus
      "I am in the midst of you as he that serveth." Luke 22: 27. In the Gospel of John we have the inner life of our Lord laid open to us. Jesus speaks frequently of His relation to the Father, of the motives by which He is guided, of His consciousness of t ... read more

In the Teaching of Jesus
      "Learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart. "-Matt. xi. 29. "Whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant, even as the Son of Man came to server." Matt.10:27. We have seen humility in the life of Christ, as He laid open His heart to u ... read more

      "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;" - Ephesians 6:18. What an unspeakable blessing there is in intercession. That one should pray down heavenly g ... read more

Is there sin in our own heart that we know little of?
      There may be sin in God’s sanctuary that men think or know little of. The prophet was shown by God what the men did ‘in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagining.’ (Ezek 8:12) They still clung to God’s house, they called it the temple of Jehov ... read more

it is the spirit of the world in the church that hinders the Spirit…
      I have spoken to believers. The most advanced believer will be the first to admit how subtle, how deep, the spirit of the world is, and how utterly beyond our own powers of watchfulness or victory. It is only a heart fully possessed by the Spirit of God t ... read more

      "Thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." - Matthew 1:21. As the Lord Jesus was a person, He had His own individual name. His mother, His disciples, all His friends called Him by this name--Jesus. But they proba ... read more

Jesus is the Vine
      You doubtless have never repented having come at His call. You experienced that His word was truth; all His promises He fulfilled; He made you partakers of the blessings and the joy of His love. Was not His welcome most hearty, His pardon full and free, H ... read more

Jesus The Keeper
      "The Lord is thy keeper... The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil,... He shall preserve thy soul" Psalm 121:5,7. "I know Him whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day" 2 Tim ... read more

Jesus' Surrender Of Himself
      "Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it; that He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle; but that it should be holy and without blemish" Ephesians 5:25-27. Jesus' ... read more

Jesus, the Model of Perfection
      “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matt. 5:48 It might be said that our circumstances and powers are so different from those of God that it is impossible to apply the standard of his infinite perfection in our ... read more

      These Things Have I Spoken Unto You, That My Joy May Be in You, and That Your Joy May Be Fulfilled—John 15.11 If any one asks the question, “How can I be a happy Christian?” our Lord’s answer is very simple: “These things,” about the Vine and the ... read more

Judgment begins at the house of God
      Peter had evidently read and pondered the passage of Ezekial 9:5-6, of which the words: ‘begin at my sanctuary’ are the centre. He had noticed how, before the awful judgments the prophet had to announce against the nations that had oppressed Israel (Chapt ... read more

Judgment must begin at the house of God if we are to be witnesses to the world
      After God’s declaration in chapter 7 that he would judge his people, he takes the prophet in chapter 8 to see all the wicked abominations that were being done in the house of God in Jerusalem. While the men who committed them said, “The Lord seeth us n ... read more

Kept By The Power Of God
      The words from which I speak, you will find in 1 Peter, chapter one, verse five. The third, fourth, and fifth verses are: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which ...hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Je ... read more

Kept By The Power Of God
      The words from which I speak, you will find in 1 Peter, chapter one, verse five. The third, fourth, and fifth verses are: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which ...hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Je ... read more

Knowing The Spirit
      The Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive, for it beholdeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: Ye know Him; for He abideth with you, and shall be in you.'-John 14: 17. 'Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in ... read more

knowledge… is the most dangerous of enemies.
      If we study God’s word carefully we shall be surprised to find how many things there are which it contrasts with knowing, and what danger there is in knowing without its leading to that which it was meant to produce. Scripture contrasts knowing and bel ... read more

Let Him That Is Healed Glorify God
      ‘‘He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God’’ (Acts 3:8). It is a prevalent idea that holiness is easier in sickness than in health; that silence and suffering incline ... read more

Let the heart sins be dealt with by God.
      If God’s church is to be roused, if believers are to be led to a life of greater devotion to Jesus and his service; if streams of living water are to flow out of them; if the interests of Christ’s kingdom and the salvation of souls are to become their fir ... read more

Let us give ourselves to prayer
      Let us give ourselves to prayer, intelligent, deliberate, intense prayer. I now venture to offer to God’s children what I trust may be a help in this prayer for revival… I shall ask them to pray very specially that God would give themselves and all his pe ... read more

Life in the Blood
      "Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, 1 say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink bis blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life ; and 1 will raise him up at the last day. For m ... read more

Living In and Through Christ
      Christ taught His disciples that to abide in Him was to abide in His love. The hour of His suffering is near, and He cannot speak much more to them. No doubt they have many questions to ask Him about His love and their abiding in Him. He anticipates and m ... read more

Lord, teach us to pray
      ‘And it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, that when He ceased, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray.’—Luke xi. 1. THE disciples had been with Christ, and seen Him pray. They had learnt to understand somethin ... read more

Love Conquers Selfishness
      “The fruit of the Spirit is love.” Why? Because nothing but love can expel and conquer our selfishness. Self is the great curse, whether in its relation to God, or to our fellow-men in general, or to fellow-Christians, thinking of ourselves and seekin ... read more

Love One Another
      This is My Commandment, That Ye Love One Another—John 15.12 God is love. His whole nature and perfection is love, living not for Himself, but to dispense life and blessing. In His love He begat the Son, that He might give all to Him. In His love ... read more
