The most delicate mission on earth The friend of the Bridegroom. John 3:29. Goodness and purity ought never to attract attention to themselves, they ought simply to be magnets to draw to Jesus Christ. If my holiness is not drawing towards Him, it is not holiness of the right order, but an influence that will awaken inordinate affection and lead souls away into side-eddies. A beautiful saint may be a hindrance if he does not present Jesus Christ but only what Christ has done...

Decreasing into his purpose He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30. If you become a necessity to a soul, you are out of God’s order. As a worker, your great responsibility is to be a friend of the Bridegroom. When once you see a soul in sight of the claims of Jesus Christ, you know that your influence has been in the right direction, and instead of putting out a hand to prevent the throes, pray that they grow ten times stronger until there is no power on earth or...

Am I carnally minded? Whereas there is among you jealousy and strife, are ye not carnal? 1 Cor. 3:3. No natural man knows anything about carnality. The flesh lusting against the Spirit that came in at regeneration, and the Spirit lusting against the flesh, produces carnality. “Walk in the Spirit,” says Paul, “and ye shall not fulfil the lusts of the flesh”; and carnality will disappear. Are you contentious, easily troubled about trifles? ‘Oh, but no one who is a...

The burning heart Did not our heart burn within us? Luke 24:32. We need to learn this secret of the burning heart. Suddenly Jesus appears to us, the fires are kindled, we have wonderful visions; then we have to learn to keep the secret of the burning heart that will go through anything. It is the dull, bald, dreary, commonplace day, with commonplace duties and people, that kills the burning heart unless we have learned the secret of abiding in Jesus. Much of our distress as...

“Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.” Prov. 3:23. THAT is to say, if we follow the ways of wisdom and holiness we shall be preserved in them. He who travels by daylight along the highway is under the king’s protection. There is a way for every man, namely, his own proper calling in life, and if we devoutly walk therein in the fear of God he will preserve us from evil. We may not travel luxuriously, but we shall walk safely. We may...

Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon. Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built. And the one who sounded the trumpet was beside me. Nehemiah 4:17–18 The story of the building up again of Jerusalem’s ruined wall, as told in the book of Nehemiah, is most interesting and suggestive. A wall speaks of separation and also of...
