Let Christ Be King In Your Heart
      It is impossible to serve sin and to serve Christ. Favourite and constitutional sins must be relinquished. I know many persons who say that they are under concern of soul whose sincerity I more than question, because they continue in known sin, and yet th ... read more

Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth
      For several days we have been dwelling upon the Saviour's passion, and for some little time to come we shall linger there. In beginning a new month, let us seek the same desires after our Lord as those which glowed in the heart of the elect spouse. See h ... read more

Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall
      It is a curious fact, that there is such a thing as being proud of grace. A man says, "I have great faith, I shall not fall; poor little faith may, but I never shall." "I have fervent love," says another, "I can stand, there is no danger of my going ... read more

Let No Evil Remain
      And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers. (Deuteronomy 13:17) Israel ... read more

Let the people renew their strength
      All things on earth need to be renewed. No created thing continueth by itself. "Thou renewest the face of the year," was the Psalmist's utterance. Even the trees, which wear not themselves with care, nor shorten their lives with labour, must drink of t ... read more

Let Us Forget Our Weariness
      Putting our hand to this plough and looking back will prove that we were unworthy of the kingdom. If there be a hundred reasons for giving up your work of faith, there are fifty thousand for going on with it. Though there are many arguments for faintin ... read more

Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp
      Jesus, bearing His cross, went forth to suffer without the gate. The Christian's reason for leaving the camp of the world's sin and religion is not because he loves to be singular, but because Jesus did so; and the disciple must follow his Master. Chris ... read more

Let Us Not Forget The Substitute
      Sin with many streams had been flowing down the hills of time and forming by their dread accumulation one vast and fathomless lake. Into this the sinner’s substitute must be plunged. He had a baptism to be baptized with and He must endure it, or all His ... read more

Let us not sleep, as do others
      There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, "To p ... read more

Listen for the Signal
      And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines. (2 Samuel 5:24) There are signs of the Lord's ... read more

Little did she know, that amid the sheaves—she would find a husband!
      "Ruth left and entered the field to gather grain behind the harvesters. She happened to be in the portion of land belonging to Boaz, who was from Elimelech's family." Ruth 2:3 "She happened." Yes, it seemed nothing but an accident—but how divinely was ... read more

Lo, in the midst of the throne
      Why should our exalted Lord appear in His wounds in glory? The wounds of Jesus are His glories, His jewels, His sacred ornaments. To the eye of the believer, Jesus is passing fair because He is "white and ruddy" white with innocence, and ruddy with His ... read more

Look and Live
      And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shalt come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. (Numbers 21:8) This is a glorious gospel type. Jesus, numbered with the transgr ... read more

Look into those languid eyes!
      "Show me why You contend with me!" Job 10:2 Beloved, it was thus once with you—a text of Scripture, a threatening, a touch of the rod of affliction—and you went to your Father's feet, crying, "Show me why You contend with me!" Is it so now? Are you con ... read more

Look up today, O parched plant!
      "I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing." Ezekiel 34:26 Here is sovereign grace, "I will send down showers." Is it not sovereign, divine mercy—for who can say, "I will send down showers," except God? There is only one voi ... read more

Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins
      It is well for us when prayers about our sorrows are linked with pleas concerning our sins--when, being under God's hand, we are not wholly taken up with our pain, but remember our offences against God. It is well, also, to take both sorrow and sin to th ... read more

Lord, Increase My Faith!
      Faith is not a weed to grow upon every dunghill, without care or culture: it is a plant of heavenly growth, and requires divine watching and watering. He who is the author of faith and the finisher of it, is the only one who can increase it. As no man eve ... read more

Losses Overcome
      And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten. Joel 2:25) Yes, those wasted years over which we sigh shall be restored to us. God can give us such plentiful grace that we shall crowd into the remainder of our days as much of service as w ... read more

Love Must Be Your Life
      You believe yourselves to be twice born, you have received a new and heavenly life; what do ye more than others? Ought ye not to show that there is more in you than in others, by letting more come out of you than comes out of others? Much more is expected ... read more

lt is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man
      Doubtless the reader has been tried with the temptation to rely upon the things which are seen, instead of resting alone upon the invisible God. Christians often look to man for help and counsel, and mar the noble simplicity of their reliance upon their G ... read more

Made Rich by Faith
      For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. (Psalm 9:18) Poverty is a hard heritage; but those who trust in the Lord are made rich by faith. They know that they are not forgotten of God, and though ... read more

Made Rich by Faith
      For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. (Psalm 9:18) Poverty is a hard heritage; but those who trust in the Lord are made rich by faith. They know that they are not forgotten of God, an ... read more

Man . . . is of few days, and full of trouble
      It may be of great service to us, before we fall asleep, to remember this mournful fact, for it may lead us to set loose by earthly things. There is nothing very pleasant in the recollection that we are not above the shafts of adversity, but it may humble ... read more

Man . . . is of few days, and full of trouble
      It may be of great service to us, before we fall asleep, to remember this mournful fact, for it may lead us to set loose by earthly things. There is nothing very pleasant in the recollection that we are not above the shafts of adversity, but it may humble ... read more

Martha was cumbered about much serving
      Her fault was not that she served: the condition of a servant well becomes every Christian. "I serve," should be the motto of all the princes of the royal family of heaven. Nor was it her fault that she had "much serving." We cannot do too much. Let u ... read more

Mercy to the Undeserving
      He that trusteth m the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. (Psalm 32:10) O fair reward of trust! My Lord, grant it me to the full! The truster above all men feels himself to be a sinner; and lo, mercy is prepared for him: he knows himself to have no des ... read more

Mighty to save
      By the words "to save" we understand the whole of the great work of salvation, from the first holy desire onward to complete sanctification. The words are multum in parro: indeed, here is all mercy in one word. Christ is not only "mighty to save" thos ... read more

More Than A Mere Man
      There are certain persons who deny the godhead of our Lord and yet think well of Jesus as a man; indeed, they have uttered many highly complimentary things with regard to his character: but I wonder it should not strike them that there is a great deal of ... read more

Mouth Confession; Heart Belief
      If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:9) There must be confession with the mouth. Have I made it? Have I openly avowed my faith in Jes ... read more

My Choice Is His Choice
      He shall choose our inheritance for us. (Psalm 47:4) Our enemies would allot us a very dreary portion, but we are not left in their hands. The Lord will cause us to stand in our lot, and our place is appointed by His infinite wisdom. A wiser mind than ou ... read more

My expectation is from Him
      It is the believer's privilege to use this language. If he is looking for aught from the world, it is a poor "expectation" indeed. But if he looks to God for the supply of his wants, whether in temporal or spiritual blessings, his expectation" will no ... read more

My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?
      We here behold the Saviour in the depth of His sorrows. No other place so well shows the griefs of Christ as Calvary, and no other moment at Calvary is so full of agony as that in which His cry rends the air--"My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" ... read more

My grace is sufficient for thee
      If none of God's saints were poor and tried, we should not know half so well the consolations of divine grace. When we find the wanderer who has not where to lay his head, who yet can say, "Still will I trust in the or, when we see the pauper starving o ... read more

MY having been His murderer!
      "A great multitude of the people followed Him, including women who mourned and wailed for Him." Luke 23:27 Amid the rabble crowd which hounded the Redeemer to His doom, there were some gracious souls whose bitter anguish sought vent in wailing and lame ... read more

My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels
      Our blessed Lord experienced a terrible sinking and melting of soul. "The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity, but a wounded spirit who can bear?" Deep depression of spirit is the most grievous of all trials; all besides is as nothing. Well might ... read more

My sister, my spouse
      Observe the sweet titles with which the heavenly Solomon with intense affection addresses His bride the church. "My sister, one near to me by ties of nature, partaker of the same sympathies. My spouse, nearest and dearest, united to me by the tenderest b ... read more

Navigating A Dangerous World
      If you are often assailed by foes, and if those foes happen to be the men of your own household, if they jeer at your faith, if they make a jest of holiness on purpose to pain you, you will need a great deal of grace not to be ruffled. To be a dove always ... read more

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors
      We go to Christ for forgiveness, and then too often look to the law for power to fight our sins. Paul thus rebukes us, "O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit ... read more

Never Cast Out
      Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37) Is there any instance of our Lord's casting out a coming one? If there be so, we would like to know of it; but there has been none, and there never will be. Among the lost souls in hell there ... read more

Never Despair
      But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings. (Malachi 4.2) Fulfilled once in the first advent of our glorious Lord, and yet to have a fuller accomplishment in His second advent, this gracious word is also ... read more

No Cause to Blush
      Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed. (Isaiah 54.4) We shall not be ashamed of our faith. Carping critics may assail the Scriptures upon which we ground our belief, but every year the Lord will make it more and more clear that in His Book there is no ... read more

No Fear of Death
      He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; he that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. (Revelation 2:11) The first death we must endure unless the Lord should suddenly come to His temple. For this let us abid ... read more

No longer slaves but children
      Since we have put our trust in an atonement provided and applied by grace through Christ Jesus, we are no longer slaves but children, not working to be saved, but saved already, and working because we are saved. Neither that which we do, nor even that whi ... read more

No Need to Stint
      The upright shall have good things in possession. (Proverbs 28:10) The book of Proverbs is also a book of promises. Promises ought to be proverbs among the people of God. This is a very remarkable one. We are accustomed to think of our good things as in ... read more

Not Forgotten
      Thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. (Isaiah 44:21) Our Jehovah cannot so forget His servants as to cease to love them. He chose them not for a time but forever. He knew what they would be when He called them into the divine ... read more

Not Left to Perish
      For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither will thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. (Psalm 16:10) This word has it proper fulfillment in the Lord Jesus; but it applies also, with a variation, to all who are in Him. Our soul shall not be l ... read more

Not what we could be... but what we are
      I know persons of great attainments in spiritual knowledge who do not teach one half so much as newly converted lads and girls, who occupy their posts in the school right earnestly, and teach what little they know. I regret to say it, that those who could ... read more

NOTES (from the April 1887 Sword and Trowel)
      We are glad that the article upon "The Down Grade" has excited notice. It is not intended to be an attack on any one, but to be a warning to all. We are asked whether Methodists are upon "The Down Grade," and we are happy to reply that we do not think ... read more

NOTES (from the April 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      P RAYER should be continually offered by the people of God at this time. The Baptist Union meets in full assembly on April 23, and the great question then before it will be—"Is this Union to have an Evangelical basis or not?" We trust the question wi ... read more

NOTES (from the August 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      WE take special note of Memorials of Joseph Tritton. Our departed friend was a man of a thousand—a choice and chastened spirit. By nature he was of pure taste and elevated spirit; but grace came in and refined everything, and wrought in him the beauty of ... read more
