Dealing Personally with the Unconverted

“He that winneth souls is wise.” – Proverbs 11:30 We must school and train ourselves to deal personally with the unconverted.

Christ Crucified the only Basis of Assurance

Look steadily at Jesus on the cross, if you want inward peace. Look to anything of yourself and you will never feel comfortable.

Afflictions prepare us for Heaven

Afflictions are preparing for us a “more abundant entrance,” a weightier crown, a whiter robe, a sweeter rest, a home made doubly precious by a long exile and many sufferings here below.

Assurance is a delicate Thing

Do not forget that assurance is a thing that may be lost. Oh! it is a most delicate plant. It needs daily, hourly watching, watering, tending, cherishing. So take care. David lost it. Peter lost it. Each found it again—but not until after bitter tears. Quench not the Spirit; grieve Him not; vex Him not. […]

Comfort in the Gospel

Let us take comfort in the thought that the Lord Jesus does not cast off His believing people because of failures and imperfections. He knows what they are. He takes them, as the husband takes the wife, with all their blemishes and defects, and once joined to Him by faith, will never leave them. He […]
