Christ, the Everlasting Father

Posted by on March 1, 2020 at 4:31 am

(From Octavius Winslow’s, “Christ, the Everlasting Father”) The everlasting love of Christ never veers, never chills, and knows not the shadow of a change. Measuring Christ’s love to us by our love to Him, we often imagine that it must necessarily be affected by the cold, chilling atmosphere of our hearts; that when our love […]

John MacDuff “I will heal your backslidings.” —Hosea 14:4 Wandering again! And has He not left me to perish?

Does God Love Everyone? In answering this question many go straight to John 3:16 for the answer.

“We love him because he first loved us.” -1 John 4:19 There is no light in the planet but that which proceeds from the sun; and there is no true love to Jesus in the heart but that which comes from the Lord Jesus himself. From this overflowing fountain of the infinite love of God, […]

A Father’s hand!

A Father’s hand! (Octavius Winslow) “My times are in Your hand!” Psalm 31:15 Our times of adversity are also in God’s hand. As every sunbeam that brightens, so every cloud that darkens, comes from God. We are subject to great and sudden reverses in our earthly condition. Joy is often followed by grief; prosperity is […]

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber…                                                      (Psalms 121:3) Your warfare, it seems, still continues; and it will continue while you remain here. But He is faithful that promised to make us more than conquerors in the last conflict, then we shall hear the voice of […]

The infinite ocean of Christ’s love!

The infinite ocean of Christ’s love! (Octavius Winslow, “The Emotion of Love in Christ”) The mind has often been sensible of a feeling of awe as we have stood upon the shore, and gazed upon the vast expanse of the ocean. With a similar, yet far transcending emotion, we approach the infinite ocean of Christ’s […]

A dead dog sinner!

A dead dog sinner! (David Eddmenson) Upon arriving to services one Wednesday evening to my surprise there was an old, mangy, rejected, and forsaken dog sitting on the front porch of the church building. I was appalled and repulsed at the dog’s sad appearance and horrible condition. This poor creature was in bad shape, yet all I can remember […]

But God commendeth his love towards us

“But God commendeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”—Romans v. 8. It is a very blessed heightening of divine mercies, when we behold them as not only bestowed upon those that deserved them not, but upon those that deserved the reverse of them. It is not […]
