Habitual Communion

Regular and habitual communion with the Lord Jesus, is absolutely essential to growth in grace! I mean that daily habit of communion between the believer and his Savior, which can only be carried on by faith, prayer and meditation. It is a habit, I fear, of which many believers know little. It is possible to … Continue reading

Bear It Patiently

Another supreme duty which the prevalence of sickness requires of us, is that of always being ready to bear it patiently. Sickness is no doubt a trying thing to flesh and blood. To feel our nerves unstrung, and our natural energy reduced, to be obliged to sit still and be cut off from all our … Continue reading

Running Like Ants

Oh, that men and women would learn to live with the awareness that one day they are going to die! Truly, it is waste of time to set our hearts on a dying world and its short-lived comforts and pleasures; and for the sake of momentary pleasures–to lose a glorious eternity in Heaven! Here we … Continue reading

The Mouth Speaks

Let it be a settled principle again in our religion, that when a man’s general conversation is ungodly–his heart is graceless and unconverted.

Infinite Fulness

It is Christ alone, who supplies all the spiritual needs of all believers. There is an infinite fullness in Jesus Christ. There is laid up in Jesus, as in a treasury, a boundless supply of all that any sinner can need–either in time or eternity. He is rich in . . .   mercy,   … Continue reading

All Things Well!!!

People were overwhelmed with amazement."He has done all things well!" they said.      Mark 7:37 The truth to which they gave utterance, is full of deep and unspeakable comfort; and ought to be daily remembered by all true Christians. Let us remember it, as we look BACK over the past days of our lives, from the … Continue reading

That Hand Can Never Smite You

"God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son." John 3:16 Reader, if God has given you His only begotten Son, beware of doubting His kindness and love, in any painful providence of your daily life! Never allow yourself to think hard thoughts of God. Never suppose that He can give you … Continue reading

Almighty Friend

Christ is that Almighty Friend, Advocate and Physician—to whom all sinners, needing help, are commanded to apply. The believer comes to Him by faith—and is relieved. – J.C. Ryle

Great High Priest

We have a great High Priest in heaven, who can be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, and who bids us pour out our hearts before Him, and come to Him for grace to help in time of need. -J. C. Ryle, Looking Unto Jesus!
