Questions for "Down-grade" Doubters (March, 1889)
      DEAR MR. EDITOR,—At the recent meeting of the London Baptist Association, in endeavoring to show the inutility of the "seven statements" which it was proposed should be attached to Rule I. of the Constitution, I submitted the following seven questions. ... read more

Rain Without Clouds? Never!
      If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth. (Ecclesiastes 11:3) Why, then, do we dread the clouds which now darken our sky? True, for a while they hide the sun, but the sun is not quenched; He will shine out again before long. Me ... read more

Real Estate in Heaven
      Kneeing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. (Hebrews 10:34) This is well. Our substance here is very unsubstantial; there is no substance in it. But God has given us a promise of real estate in the gloryland, and that ... read more

Refreshing Sleep
      When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid. yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. (Proverbs 3:24) Is the reader likely to be confined for a while to the bed by sickness! Let him go upstairs without distress with this promise upon hi ... read more

REGENERATION AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
      YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN." This word of our Lord Jesus has appeared to flame in the way of many, like the drawn sword of the cherub at the gate of Paradise. They have despaired, because this change is beyond their utmost effort. The new birth is from above, ... read more

Rejoice that your name is written above!
      Gifts, attainments, labors, successes, all heaped together, cannot support a soul on the verge of eternity. There is ever present the fact that such things are no sure sign of regeneration. Did not the sons of the Pharisees cast out devils? Did not the pe ... read more

Remember the word unto Thy servant
      Whatever your especial need may be, you may readily find some promise in the Bible suited to it. Are you faint and feeble because your way is rough and you are weary? Here is the promise--"He giveth power to the faint." When you read such a promise, tak ... read more

Remind God of His Promise
      And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good. (Genesis 32:12) This is the sure way of prevailing with the Lord in prayer. We may humbly remind Him of what He has said. Our faithful God will never run back from His word, nor will He leave it unfulfilled; y ... read more

REPENTANCE MUST GO WITH FORGIVENESS
      IT IS CLEAR from the text which we have lately quoted that repentance is bound up with the forgiveness of sins. In Acts 5:31 we read that Jesus is "exalted to give repentance and forgiveness of sins." These two blessings come from that sacred hand which ... read more

Rest Is a Gift
      Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew I 1:28) We who are saved find rest in Jesus. Those who are not saved will receive rest if they come to Him, for here He promises to "give" it. Nothing can be freer th ... read more

Rest on a Promise
      The land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it. (Genesis 28:13) No promise is of private interpretation: it belongs not to one saint but to all believers. If, my brother, thou canst in faith lie down upon a promise and take thy rest thereon, it is t ... read more

Restoration of Truth and Revival (December, 1887)
      OH for a great and general revival of true religion! Not a burst of mere excitement, but a real awakening, a work of the Eternal Spirit. This would be a glorious reply to skepticism, and would act like a strong wind in clearing the air, and driving away t ... read more

Retaining the Risen Lord
      Yet you would not be so glad to see Him as He would be to see you. He is very dear to you; but He is not so dear to you as you are to Him. . . He loves you more than you can ever love Him. . . . . When we are running on our Master's errands, we may ho ... read more

Return from Backsliding
      If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up. (Job 22:23) Eliphaz, in this utterance, spoke a great truth, which is the summary of many an inspired Scripture. Reader, has sin pulled you down? Have you become like a ruin? Has the hand of the Lor ... read more

Rightly Planted
      His promises are sure to be fulfilled. If he plants a tree he will cause it to flourish. There seems to be very much against the Christian, many perils to which he is exposed, when he is first planted. Indeed, in the early childhood of Christian life we u ... read more

Rise up My love, My beautiful one—and come away!
      "My Beloved spoke and said to me—Rise up My love, My beautiful one—and come away!" Song of Solomon 2:10 Lo, I hear the voice of my Beloved! He speaks to me! He bids me "Rise up!" and well He may, for I have long enough been lying among the pots of worl ... read more

Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away
      Lo, I hear the voice of my Beloved! He speaks to me! Fair weather is smiling upon the face of the earth, and He would not have me spiritually asleep while nature is all around me awaking from her winter's rest. He bids me "Rise up," and well He may, fo ... read more

Salvation is of the Lord
      Salvation is the work of God. It is He alone who quickens the soul "dead in trespasses and sins," and it is He also who maintains the soul in its spiritual life. He is both "Alpha and Omega." "Salvation is of the Lord." If I am prayerful, God makes ... read more

Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation
      What does this sweet prayer teach me? It shall be my evening's petition; but first let it yield me an instructive meditation. The text informs me first of all that David had his doubts; for why should he pray, "Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation," if ... read more

Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him
      It is well with the righteous ALWAYS. If it had said, "Say ye to the righteous, that it is well with him in his prosperity," we must have been thankful for so great a boon, for prosperity is an hour of peril, and it is a gift from heaven to be secured f ... read more

Seeking eternal life with all your heart
      O man, if thou wert in a burning house thou wouldst be eager to get out of it; if there seemed a probability that thou wouldst sink in a river thou wouldst struggle desperately to get to shore, how is it then that thou art so little moved by the peril of ... read more

Sensitive to Warning
      Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the Lord, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept b ... read more

Servants Honored
      Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof; so he that waiteth on his master shall be honored. (Proverbs 27:18) He who tends the fig tree has figs for his pains, and he who waits on a good master has honor as his reward. Truly the Lord Jesus ... read more

Serve the Lord with gladness
      Delight in divine service is a token of acceptance. Those who serve God with a sad countenance, because they do what is unpleasant to them, are not serving Him at all; they bring the form of homage, but the life is absent. Our God requires no slaves to gr ... read more

Set Apart
      Ye shall be named the priests of the Lord. (Isaiah 61:6) This literal promise to Israel belongs spiritually to the seed after the Spirit, namely, to all believers. If we live up to our privileges, we shall live unto God so clearly and distinctly that men ... read more

Set Your Face To The Wall And Pray
      Brother, pray if you are between the jaws of death and hell. Pray, brother, if all hope seem to be utterly slain; ay, and if thou canst put thy finger on passages of God’s own word which apparently condemn thee, still pray. Whether thy fears have contor ... read more

Shall a man make gods unto himself
      One great besetting sin of ancient Israel was idolatry, and the spiritual Israel are vexed with a tendency to the same folly. Remphan's star shines no longer, and the women weep no more for Tammuz, but Mammon still intrudes his golden calf, and the shrin ... read more

Shame on you—O silly heart!
      "What makes you better than anyone else? What do you have—that God hasn't given you? And if all you have is from God—why boast as though you have accomplished something on your own?" 1 Corinthians 4:7 Christian! By nature—you are no better than others! ... read more

She bound the scarlet line in the window
      Rahab depended for her preservation upon the promise of the spies, whom she looked upon as the representatives of the God of Israel. Her faith was simple and firm, but it was very obedient. To tie the scarlet line in the window was a very trivial act in i ... read more

She called his name Ben-oni
      To every matter there is a bright as well as a dark side. Rachel was overwhelmed with the sorrow of her own travail and death; Jacob, though weeping the mother's loss, could see the mercy of the child's birth. It is well for us if, while the flesh mourn ... read more

She was healed immediately
      One of the most touching and teaching of the Saviour's miracles is before us to-night. The woman was very ignorant. She imagined that virtue came out of Christ by a law of necessity, without His knowledge or direct will. Moreover, she was a stranger to t ... read more

Shew me wherefore thou contendest with me
      Perhaps, O tried soul, the Lord is doing this to develop thy graces. There are some of thy graces which would never be discovered if it were not for thy trials. Dost thou not know that thy faith never looks so grand in summer weather as it does in winter? ... read more

Sin . . . exceeding sinful
      Beware of light thoughts of sin. At the time of conversion, the conscience is so tender, that we are afraid of the slightest sin. Young converts have a holy timidity, a godly fear lest they should offend against God. But alas! very soon the fine bloom upo ... read more

Sin And Grace Cannot Agree
      Sin and grace can no more agree than fire and water. Even the God of peace never tries to establish a peace between good and evil, for it would be monstrous even if it were possible. The way to peace is the way of holiness. Cast out sin, and you cast out ... read more

Sin is shut out—and they are shut in!
      "The sound of weeping and crying will be heard no more!" Isaiah 65:19 The glorified weep no more—because all causes of grief are gone! There are no broken friendships, nor blighted prospects in heaven. Poverty, famine, peril, persecution, and slander—a ... read more

Sins Of Ignorance
      Inadvertence is a kind of acted ignorance: a man frequently does wrong for want of thought, through not considering the bearing of his action, or even thinking at all. He carelessly and hastily blunders into the course which first suggests itself, and err ... read more

Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree
      These words are for the humbling of God's people; they are called God's vine, but what are they by nature more than others? They, by God's goodness, have become fruitful, having been planted in a good soil; the Lord hath trained them upon the walls of ... read more

Song of Confidence
      Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt receive me: thou shalt sketch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. (Psalm 138:7) Wretched walking in the midst of trouble. Nay, blessed walking, since there ... read more

Spiritual Revival: The Need of the Christian
      “O Lord, revive thy work” (Hab. 3:2). All true religion is the work of God. He regards the work of grace as being even more glorious than His works of nature. He is, therefore, especially careful that people know that He is indeed the author of salvati ... read more

Spiritual Sowing
      He that soweth to the Spirit shall of die Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6:8) Sowing looks like a losing business, for we put good corn into the ground never to see it anymore. Sowing to the Spirit seems a very fanciful, dreamy business; for we ... read more

Stay Free!
      Those who had been of the sect of the Pharisees brought a good share of Pharisaic tendencies with them into the church, and these were dangerous to the young kingdom of Christ. I scarcely know whether legal principles were not able to do more mischief ins ... read more

Such is life
      Such is LIFE. A bubble, brilliant with rainbow hues, delighting the eye of youth for a moment and then gone for ever, leaving not a trace behind. Man wilt thou risk thine all upon that bubble? Be wise and seek substantial good, and since this can ne'er b ... read more

Such likeness between men and swine!
      Rowland Hill illustrated the folly of sinners, by the story of a butcher who was followed by the swine right into the slaughterhouse. As pigs are not usually in the mind to go where they are wanted, it seemed a mystery how these animals were so eager to f ... read more

Surefootedness
      The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hind's feet, and he will mate me to walk upon mine high places. (Habakkuk 3:19) This confidence of the man of God is tantamount to a promise, for that which faith is persuaded of is the purpose o ... read more

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler
      God delivers His people from the snare of the fowler in two senses. From, and out of. First, He delivers them from the snare--does not let them enter it; and secondly, if they should be caught therein, He delivers them out of it. The first promise is the ... read more

Surely something must be amiss with the scales!
      "You are to have honest balances, honest weights, an honest dry measure, and an honest liquid measure; I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt." Leviticus 19:36 Weights, and scales, and measures—were to be all according to the ... read more

Surgery for Healing
      Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. (Hosea 6:1) It is the Lord's way to tear before He heals. This is the honest love of His heart and the sure surgery of His hand. He als ... read more

Take both sorrow and sin—to the same place!
      "Look upon my affliction and my pain—and forgive all my sins!" Psalm 25:18 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 ... read more

Take up the cross, and follow Me
      You have not the making of your own cross, although unbelief is a master carpenter at cross-making; neither are you permitted to choose your own cross, although self-will would fain be lord and master; but your cross is prepared and appointed for you by d ... read more

Talk Of God's Wondrous Works
      You cannot all preach, but you can all talk; and, if some preachers would refrain from rhetoric and tell their plain unvarnished tale, they would succeed better than they do now. Do you think that God meant his ministers to kill themselves in order come o ... read more
