Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness
      A Holy character does not avert temptation--Jesus was tempted. When Satan tempts us, his sparks fall upon tinder; but in Christ's case, it was like striking sparks on water; yet the enemy continued his evil work. Now, if the devil goes on striking when t ... read more

There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness
      Doubting one! thou hast often said, "I fear I shall never enter heaven." Fear not! all the people of God shall enter there. I love the quaint saying of a dying man, who exclaimed, "I have no fear of going home; I have sent all before me; God's finger ... read more

There Is Something Real In It
      There is something real in faith in Jesus. There is a peace which passeth all understanding obtained through pardoned sin. There is a new birth, for we have felt it; there is a new life, for we enjoy it. There is a joy that overleaps earth’s narrow boun ... read more

There is therefore now no condemnation
      Come, my soul, think thou of this. Believing in Jesus, thou art actually and effectually cleared from guilt; thou art led out of thy prison. Thou art no more in fetters as a bond-slave; thou art delivered now from the bondage of the law; thou art freed fr ... read more

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God
      How different will be the state of the believer in heaven from what it is here! Here he is born to toil and suffer weariness, but in the land of the immortal, fatigue is never known. Anxious to serve his Master, he finds his strength unequal to his zeal: ... read more

Therefore, brethren, we are debtors
      As God's creatures, we are all debtors to Him: to obey Him with all our body, and soul, and strength. Having broken His commandments, as we all have, we are debtors to His justice, and we owe to Him a vast amount which we are not able to pay. But of the ... read more

These all died in faith
      Behold the epitaph of all those blessed saints who fell asleep before the coming of our Lord! It matters nothing how else they died, whether of old age, or by violent means; this one point, in which they all agree, is the most worthy of record, "they all ... read more

These have no root
      My soul, examine thyself this morning by the light of this text. Thou hast received the word with joy; thy feelings have been stirred and a lively impression has been made; but, remember, that to receive the word in the ear is one thing, and to receive Je ... read more

These scars!
      "Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne!" Revelation 5:6 Why should our exalted Lord appear in heaven—with His wounds? The wounds of Jesus are—His glories, His jewels, His sacred ornaments. To the eye ... read more

They did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year
      Israel's weary wanderings were all over, and the promised rest was attained. No more moving tents, fiery serpents, fierce Amalekites, and howling wildernesses: they came to the land which flowed with milk and honey, and they ate the old corn of the land. ... read more

They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house
      Sheba's queen was amazed at the sumptuousness of Solomon's table. She lost all heart when she saw the provision of a single day; and she marvelled equally at the company of servants who were feasted at the royal board. But what is this to the hospitalit ... read more

They shall sing in the ways of the Lord
      The time when Christians begin to sing in the ways of the Lord is when they first lose their burden at the foot of the Cross. Not even the songs of the angels seem so sweet as the first song of rapture which gushes from the inmost soul of the forgiven chi ... read more

They took Jesus, and led Him away
      He had been all night in agony, He had spent the early morning at the hall of Caiaphas, He had been hurried from Caiaphas to Pilate, from Pilate to Herod, and from Herod back again to Pilate; He had, therefore, but little strength left, and yet neither re ... read more

They were not carried to heaven on beds of ease!
      "Woe is me—that I dwell among these scoundrels of Meshech! It pains me to live with these people from Kedar!" Psalm 120:5 As a Christian, you have to live in the midst of an ungodly world, and it is of little use for you to cry, "Woe is me!" Jesus ... read more

This Body Fashioned Anew
      Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body. (Philippians 3:21) Often when we are racked with pain and unable to think or worship, we feel that this indeed is "the body of our humiliation," and when we are tempted ... read more

This do in remembrance of Me
      It seems then, that Christians may forget Christ! There could be no need for this loving exhortation, if there were not a fearful supposition that our memories might prove treacherous. Nor is this a bare supposition: it is, alas! too well confirmed in our ... read more

This Is What I Know
      Beloved, I know that I have been converted, for I am sure that there is a change of heart in me; nevertheless, my hope of eternal life does not hang upon the inward fact. I rest in the external fact that God hath revealed himself in Jesus as blotting out ... read more

This Must Be a Soldiers' Battle (December, 1889)
      ONE who is very valiant for the truth said to us, "This must be a soldiers' battle." In that utterance we heartily concur. The gospel of the Lord Jesus is now assailed all along the line. Scarcely a denomination is free from the enemies of the truth: t ... read more

This was his final verdict!
      "Behold, all is vanity!" Ecclesiastes 1:14 Nothing can fully satisfy a person—but the Lord's love and the Lord's own self. Christians have tried other pursuits—but they have been driven out of such fatal refuges. Solomon, the wisest of men, was pe ... read more

Those ghastly corpses might well have affrighted Rizpah!
      "Then Rizpah, the mother of two of the men, spread sackcloth on a rock and stayed there the entire harvest season. She prevented vultures from tearing at their bodies during the day, and stopped wild animals from eating them at night." 2 Samuel 21:10 ... read more

Thou art my hope in the day of evil
      The path of the Christian is not always bright with sunshine; he has his seasons of darkness and of storm. True, it is written in God's Word, "Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace;" and it is a great truth, that religion is ca ... read more

Thou hast left thy first love
      Ever to be remembered is that best and brightest of hours, when first we saw the Lord, lost our burden, received the roll of promise, rejoiced in full salvation, and went on our way in peace. It was spring time in the soul; the winter was past; the mutter ... read more

Thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge
      The Israelites in the wilderness were continually exposed to change. Whenever the pillar stayed its motion, the tents were pitched; but tomorrow, ere the morning sun had risen, the trumpet sounded, the ark was in motion, and the fiery, cloudy pillar was l ... read more

Thou shalt be called, Sought out
      The surpassing grace of God is seen very clearly in that we were not only sought, but sought out. Men seek for a thing which is lost upon the floor of the house, but in such a case there is only seeking, not seeking out. The loss is more perplexing and th ... read more

Thou shalt call his name Jesus
      When a person is dear, everything connected with him becomes dear for his sake. Thus, so precious is the person of the Lord Jesus in the estimation of all true believers, that everything about Him they consider to be inestimable beyond all price. "All Th ... read more

Thou shalt love thy neighbour
      "Love thy neighbour." Perhaps he rolls in riches, and thou art poor, and living in thy little cot side-by-side with his lordly mansion; thou seest every day his estates, his fine linen, and his sumptuous banquets; God has given him these gifts, covet no ... read more

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night
      What is this terror? It may be the cry of fire, or the noise of thieves, or fancied appearances, or the shriek of sudden sickness or death. We live in the world of death and sorrow, we may therefore look for ills as well in the night-watches as beneath th ... read more

Thus saith the Lord God
      Prayer is the forerunner of mercy. Turn to sacred history, and you will find that scarcely ever did a great mercy come to this world unheralded by supplication. You have found this true in your own personal experience. God has given you many an unsolicite ... read more

Thy gentleness hath made me great
      The words are capable of being translated, "Thy goodness hath made me great." David gratefully ascribed all his greatness not to his own goodness, but the goodness of God. "Thy providence," is another reading; and providence is nothing more than goodn ... read more

Thy good Spirit
      Common, too common is the sin of forgetting the Holy Spirit. This is folly and ingratitude. He deserves well at our hands, for He is good, supremely good. As God, He is good essentially. He shares in the threefold ascription of Holy, holy, holy, which asc ... read more

Thy love is better than wine
      Nothing gives the believer so much joy as fellowship with Christ. He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life, he can be glad both in God's gifts and God's works; but in all these separately, yea, and in all of them added together, he ... read more

Thy love to me was wonderful
      Come, dear readers, let each one of us speak for himself of the wonderful love, not of Jonathan, but of Jesus. We will not relate what we have been told, but the things which we have tasted and handled-of the love of Christ. Thy love to me, O Jesus, was w ... read more

To Declare Myself A Friend Of Christ
      Christian men, however reserved and backward their natural disposition may be, are compelled to speak out when they are very much pressed. These Pharisees took this man and questioned him rather closely. They put questions to him by way of examination and ... read more

To Him be glory both now and forever
      Heaven will be full of the ceaseless praises of Jesus. Eternity! thine unnumbered years shall speed their everlasting course, but forever and for ever, "to Him be glory." Is He not a "Priest I for ever after the order of Melchisedek"? "To Him be glor ... read more

To Others an "Ensample"
      Those things, which ye have both Warned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of pace shall be with you. (Philippians 4:9) It is well when a man can with advantage be so minutely copied as Paul might have been. Oh, for grace to imitat ... read more

To whom belongest thou?
      No neutralities can exist in religion. We are either ranked under the banner of Prince Immanuel, to serve and fight His battles, or we are vassals of the black prince, Satan. "To whom belongest thou?" Reader, let me assist you in your response. Have ... read more

TO YOU
      HE WHO SPOKE and wrote this message will be greatly disappointed if it does not lead many to the Lord Jesus. It is sent forth in childlike dependence upon the power of God the Holy Ghost, to use it in the conversion of millions, if so He pleases. No doubt ... read more

Treasures Hidden in the Scriptures
      Man’s books have usually far less in them than we expect, but the book of the Lord is full of surprises, it is a mass of light, a mountain of priceless revelations. We little know what yet lies hidden within the Scriptures. We know the form of sound wor ... read more

True Heart-Energy
      Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them, that thy profiting may appear to all. (1 Timothy 4:15) This is, practically, a promise that, by diligent meditation and the giving up of our whole mind to our work for the Lord we shall make a prog ... read more

Trust Means Joy
      For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. (Psalm 33:21) The root of faith produces the flower of heart-joy. We may not at the first rejoice, but it comes in due time. We trust the Lord when we are sad, and in due seaso ... read more

Truth Established
      The lip of truth shall be established for ever; but a lying tongue is but for a moment. (Proverbs 12:19) Truth wears well. Time tests it, but it right well endures the trial. R; then, I have spoken the truth and have for the present to suffer for it, I m ... read more

Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity
      There are divers kinds of vanity. The cap and bells of the fool, the mirth of the world, the dance, the lyre, and the cup of the dissolute, all these men know to be vanities; they wear upon their forefront their proper name and title. Far more treacherous ... read more

Two precious jewels glittering side by side
      "Delight yourself in the Lord." Psalm 37:4 The teaching of these words must seem very surprising to those who are strangers to vital godliness. But to the sincere believer, it is only the inculcation of a recognized truth. The life of the believer i ... read more

Unbroken Fellowship Essential
      lf ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (John 15:7) Of necessity we must be in Christ to live unto Him, and we must abide in Him to be able to claim the largesse of this promise from Him. To ... read more

Understandest thou what thou readest?
      We should be abler teachers of others, and less liable to be carried about by every wind of doctrine, if we sought to have a more intelligent understanding of the Word of God. As the Holy Ghost, the Author of the Scriptures is He who alone can enlighten u ... read more

Unstaggering Trustfulness
      He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. (Psalm 112:7) Suspense is dreadful. When we have no news from home, we are apt to grow anxious, and we cannot be persuaded that "no news is good news." Faith is the cure fo ... read more

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints
      The apostle Paul felt it a great privilege to be allowed to preach the gospel. He did not look upon his calling as a drudgery, but he entered upon it with intense delight. Yet while Paul was thus thankful for his office, his success in it greatly humbled ... read more

Victory in Reverses
      Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me. (Micah 7:8) This may express the feelings of a man or woman downtrodden and oppressed. Our enemy may put out our light for a seas ... read more

Wait for the Finals
      Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last. (Genesis 49:19) Some of us have been like the tribe of Gad. Our adversaries for a while were too many for us; they came upon us like a troop. Yes, and for the moment they overcame us; an ... read more

Walk in Light
      I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46) This world is dark as midnight; Jesus has come that by faith we may have light and may no longer sit in the gloom which covers all the rest of mank ... read more
