“Whence Hast Thou That Living Water?” John 4:11             The Lord Jesus told this woman plainly that if she had known the gift of God and who he was, she would have asked of him, and he would have given her living water. I fully realize that she did not know the full implication of what […]

He Leadeth Me Beside The Still Water

“He Leadeth Me Beside The Still Waters”   Psalm 23:2      What a gentle word – “leadeth”! Gently, thoughtfully, tenderly, but effectually, the Lord Jesus leads his sheep, like Jacob of old, to the soft, deep, quiet, still waters, as they are able to bear it (Gen. 33:14). He leads me not to the noisy waters of strife, the […]

Any man

“Any Man”      John 7:35      Nowhere in Holy Scripture do we read that Christ is the Saviour of every man. To say that he is is to say that the Son of God is a failure as a Saviour, for there are many who are not saved. But the Bible does declare that Christ is the […]

Self Promoting Preachers “He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” (John 7:18) Multitudes there are, like Diotrephes, who fill the pulpits of churches in every age.

“Where Is He?”

“Where Is He?”        John 7:11             Everyone knew that the Lord Jesus would be at Jerusalem during the feast of tabernacles. The whole city seems to have been buzzing with this question. Some sought him to kill him, others to make him a king. Some were curious about him. Some wanted to see his miracles, some […]

We Love Him

Posted by on October 11, 2022 at 12:57 pm

“We Love Him” 1 John 4:19 We readily acknowledge that God’s love for us precedes our love for him. “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee” (Jeremiah 31:3). His love is without beginning, without cause, without change, […]

Brazen Hypocrisy John 13:2 Nothing in all the world is more corrupt or more callous than the heart of a hypocrite. There sat Judas at the table with the Son of God and his disciples. But he had already struck his deal with the Jews’ priests to betray the Saviour. — What brazen hypocrisy! Judas […]
