How Can I Get A Christian Wife?

This question can be asked in reverse: “How does one get a Christian husband?” for the two are really the same. To answer it, I would like to put together three verses from the Word of God. “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). “Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife” (1 Corinthians 7:27). “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). From the … Read More >

The Greatest Work In The World!

There are many good things that a man can do in the world today. But I have a conviction that the greatest work any of us can do is to help lead people to Jesus Christ. You do not have to be a “full-time Christian worker” to be a soul-winner. In fact, many of our greatest soul-winners are dedicated men and women who hold “ordinary” occupations, but who use every opportunity to witness for Christ. We use the word “soul-winner” so often, and yet I wonder if we really know what it means? Perhaps it would be helpful to us … Read More >

Is It Returning Backsliding Saints That Cause Rejoicing In Heaven, Or Is It Sinners That Repent?

The great supper of Luke 14 speaks of what God has prepared for sinners and it is to such the invitation goes out, “Come for all things are now ready.” Where then, will God find His guests? How our heart rejoices and the soul bows in adoration and praise as we think of the grace of God which goes out to the despised man of the street, or the destitute inhabitant of the lanes, or any wretched child of poverty who has been driven by sheer necessity to take shelter wherever found. “Go out quickly into the streets and lanes … Read More >

Fools—Wise Or Otherwise

I am going to ask your attention to two passages of Scripture, as I begin this message. We may turn to a number more as we go along. In the book of Proverbs, chapter ten, the last part of verse twenty-one, we read: “Fools die for want of wisdom.” And then in First Corinthians, chapter 3, verse eighteen: “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.” These verses may seem almost paradoxical, but in the one instance God is speaking from … Read More >

Charge That To My Account

If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it; albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides” —Philemon 17-19 Someone has said that this Epistle to Philemon is the finest specimen of early private Christian correspondence extant. We should expect this, since it was given by divine inspiration. And yet it all has to do with a thieving runaway slave named Onesimus, … Read More >

Sin In The Camp

But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel. And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Beth-aven, on the east side of Beth-el, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai. And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the people go up; … Read More >

Give Me A True Token

Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the Lord, since I have showed you kindness, that ye will also show kindness unto my father’s house, and give me a true token.”—Joshua 2:12 “By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.”—Hebrews 11:31 “Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?”—James 2:25 Israel’s crossing the Jordan River speaks to us of our death with Christ. Joshua sent spies over to Jericho to find … Read More >

Love Minus Love Equals Nothing

Love is the missing link in the world today. Love is the cure-all medicine for our sin-sick generation. By the word “love” we do not mean a fleshly love of the opposite sex, but a divine love shared by those who know the Lord. Love is the foundation of all that is worthwhile. Love for one’s country is the foundation of a nation. Without this love everyone becomes a law to himself, and unity and strength are dissipated. A nation minus love equals self-destruction. Love for each member of the family is the basis of the home and a sample … Read More >

Man's Failure And God's Grace

Psalm 38 might be designated “The Penitent’s Plea.” It is the cry of a man who is distressed and broken hearted because of his sin and who comes to God acknowledging his guilt and looking to Him for forgiveness. Over the first four verses we might write the word “Conviction.” We have the expression here of a convicted soul, of a man who is not trying to make excuses for his sins. As long as you find a person endeavoring to excuse his sins and failures, you will know that the plowshare of conviction has never gone in deep enough. … Read More >

Psalms 13 To 15

In Psalm 13 we have the tried believer crying to God for deliverance and yet trusting in His overruling providence in spite of all the difficult circumstances of the way. Four times in the first two verses we get the cry, “How long?” “How long with thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? How long wilt thou hid thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?” This is the heart cry, not only of Christian people during this present age … Read More >
