“Those things which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” Phil. 4:9. IT is well when a man can with advantage be so minutely copied as Paul might have been. Oh, for grace to imitate him this day and every day! Should we, through divine grace, carry into practice the Pauline teaching, we may claim the promise which is now open before us; and what a promise it is! God, who loves peace, makes peace, and...

“Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” —2 Timothy 2:1 Christ has grace without measure in himself, but he hath not retained it for himself. As the reservoir empties itself into the pipes, so hath Christ emptied out his grace for his people. “Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” He seems only to have in order to dispense to us. He stands like the fountain, always flowing, but only running in order to supply the empty pitchers and the...

Obedience His servants ye are to whom ye obey. Romans 6:16. The first thing to do in examining the power that dominates me is to take hold of the unwelcome fact that I am responsible for being thus dominated because I have yielded. If I am a slave to myself, I am to blame for it because at a point away back I yielded myself to myself. Likewise, if I obey God I do so because I have yielded myself to Him. Yield in childhood to selfishness, and you will find it the most...

“There shall be a resurrection of the dead.” HAVING seen the great law-giver resign his breath, it may be fitting to note those passages of the Old Testament which declare a belief in the resurrection. The first is the memorable passage from the ancient book of Job— Job 19:21–27 21 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. (The patriarch was in a very sad condition, and he implored his cruel friends to spare him,...

“And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out.”—Deut. 33:18. THE blessings of the tribes are ours; for we are the true Israel who worship God in the spirit, and have no confidence in the flesh. Zebulun is to rejoice because Jehovah will bless his “going out;” we also see a promise for ourselves lying latent in this benediction. When we go out we will look out for occasions of joy. We go out to travel, and the providence of God is our convoy. We go out...

At that time Berodach-Baladan the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah; for he heard that Hezekiah had been sick. And Hezekiah was attentive to them, and showed them all the house of his treasures—the silver and gold, the spices and precious ointment, and all his armory—all that was found among his treasures. There was nothing in his house or in all his dominion that Hezekiah did not show them. 2 Kings 20:12–13 Yesterday we saw...
