A Troubled Borrower

By Rev. Paul Rader

“But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water; and he cried, and said, Alas, master! For it was borrowed.” —2 Kings 6:5

Elisha was at the head of a school of the young sons of the prophets at Gilgal, and this chapter records a theological lesson given to the theological students.

The students in this school said, “Behold, now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us, Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, …

Transformed And Transfigured, Or Conformed And Disfigured

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God.”—Romans 12:2

Now, here’s an exact mathematical proposition, where you can get the answer and prove it. “Be not conformed to this world.” He tells you how—“by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God.”

The artist that is drawing a good picture refers very often to the model. Here is a man painting a mountain scene, so …

Peace Paid For

By Rev. Paul Rader

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” —1 Thessalonians 5:23

“And the very God of peace”—He is the Lord of hosts, He is the God of creation, He is the God of love; and this verse says that He is the “very God of peace.”

There is no wrangle in heaven, Hallelujah. There is no misunderstanding in heaven, there is no friction in heaven—He is the very God of peace. As surely as when there is …

Comments on 2 Peter 1

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.”

Sometimes God adds, and sometimes He multiplies. Grace and peace are always multiplied.

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.”

“Hath given unto us”—we do not have to work for them.

“through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and …

A New Story About Mr. Moody

By John Langston

Mr. John Langston, who, as a boy, remembers Mr. Moody’s first work in Chicago, and attended the North Market Street Sunday School, gave a very interesting description of Mr. Moody’s recruiting methods. He said:

“It is something to be born again, and I found Jesus back in the Illinois Street mission through the instrumentality of my old teacher, George Roberts, who went home to Glory during this present year. I bless the day when George talked to me after school, and you teachers have a splendid opportunity, better than any pastor could have.

“I want to go back to the …

Add To Your Faith Virtue

By Rev. Paul Rader

“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue.”—2 Peter 1:5

Someone has offered as a first help to failing lives this suggestion, “To think without confusion clearly.” If there ever was a day when people would have to have eyes in the back of their heads as well as in the front, as far as giving diligence is concerned, it is in our day. You have to watch diligently if you are going to find the right road to Glory. There are so many substitutes and substitutions that you have to go to God’s Word earnestly to …

Dwelling In Beulah Land

By Rev. Paul Rader

The land which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.” —Numbers 14:7

Our inheritance in Christ Jesus is more than we can ask or think. Since He has so richly provided for us, it behooves us to believe and accept His provisions. “Must I go on in this up and down life?” cried a young man the other night as he threw himself to his knees in a struggle with the old flesh. What joy to point the struggling Christian to the Beulah Land of the soul: a place of rest and victory in the Holy …

The Transformed Life

By Rev. Paul Rader

Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” —Romans 12:2

Two little girls were washing the dishes one day. One of them was murmuring over her task, when the other said, “Let’s think about what we are going to get for Christmas, and doin’ the dishes won’t hurt so much.”

There is a law here in this little incident that is worthy of our close attention. It is the law of transformation by renewing. Are we to let circumstances, moods, conditions, rule us and weigh us down, or are we to find this spiritual law of transformation by renewal? …

God's Move

By Rev. Paul Rader

Thy right hand, O, Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.” —Exodus 15:6

How glorious in power is the hand that in the beginning created the heavens and the earth. How glorious in power the hand that made the sun, whose flames leap into space 250,000 miles, a sun with plenty of heat and light, so much given off and only a small part of it used by a universe.

How bounteous the makings of this hand that gives light and warmth. What strength in this hand that holds the …

Comments on 1 Thessalonians 5

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.”

I don’t know what you are drunk with, but I know many people are drunk with a great many things today—some staggering ideals, some colossal foolishness, or something else. There is more in this word “sober” than simply abstaining from some intoxicating liquor. It is a wonderful thing to have a sober mind and not let yourself be carried away by the drunken spirit of our day, but to stand with Jesus Christ, while the tide is going the other way. Ask God for a …
