(John Newton) Depend upon it—if you walk closely with God for forty years, at the end of that time you will have a much lower opinion of yourself than you have now!

Religion Without Love “Beloved, let us love, for love is of God. In God alone love has its true abode. Beloved, let us love, for those who love are truly His sons born from above. Beloved, let us love, for love is rest, and he who loveth not remains unblessed!” Religion without love is like […]

ARE YOU A BEGGAR? “He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill . . . “ 1 Samuel 2:8     Begging is something that is repulsive to the proud nature of man. When a person is reduced to begging physically, we don’t even like to look at them. […]

WILLING             “Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power” (Ps. 110:3). That is not the case before the day of His power.  An evil nature makes us unwilling in all that pertains to the Gospel.  The day of His power causes those who were not willing […]

Blundering & stumbling on in darkness J.C.Philpot After the Lord has quickened our souls, for a time we often go blundering on, not knowing there is a Jesus. We think that the way of life is to keep God’s commandments—obey the law—cleanse ourselves from sin—reform our lives—cultivate universal holiness in thought, word, and action—and so […]
