"The dangers of the world are always with us, and are far more subtle and penetrating than we recognize. Our strength is found in “sanctifying in our hearts Christ as Lord” (cf. 1 Peter 3:15, R.V.); then we may become, like him, both strong and meek, bold and yet reverent, fearless and yet full of fear. Then, while the “sword of the Spirit” must be ours, we may also hold aloft our lamp, letting our light so shine that men may see our good works, and glorify our Father which is in heaven."

"If we in our day are seeking the prize at the end of the race for eternal life we will be found following in the steps of the man Christ Jesus who has the water of life eternal (Revelation 22:17: see John 4:10-14). It may well be that we first had to have the ministrations of an Ananias [of Damascus] or a Simon Peter. Now, however, that we have found the way, let us not lose sight of the man bearing the pitcher of water of life, but follow him faithfully to the House of God."

"Let us never forget “the Man in the boat” who has loved us to the uttermost and who has promised never to leave us or forsake us. Thus shall we survive every storm, bruised and battered at times it may be, but never broken: and thus at the last shall we find that haven of rest that remaineth for his people."

"It is a mark of the honour given by God to His Son, that He has invited him to sit at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heaven, "a minister of the sanctuary and the true tent which is set up not by man but by the Lord". In these terms does the writer to the Hebrews emphasise the greatness of the Lord Jesus, who became as much superior to the angels as the name he has obtained is more excellent than theirs. But to what angel has he ever said, "Sit at my right hand, till I make your enemies a stool for your feet?"

"Let us remember that we are soldiers of Christ who wear his protective armour. The hope of salvation from sin and death protects our thinking; faith and love protect our hearts. So let us take up the sword of the Word of God, that Word which discerns the thoughts and intents of our hearts and with that defence we can overcome our trials and tribulations, and in the strength which God supplies we shall win the battle against sin in ourselves and in the world about us."

"The authority of the people and the authority of God cannot co-exist. All things of God, and as little as possible of man, is a principle characteristic of the social state originating from heaven, in Eden, in Israel, and in the church. Decency and order can only be maintained by the authority divinely appointed and sustained by the wise and good. This cooperation suppressed turbulence, and put to silence the foolish talking of the wise in their own conceits, who thought more highly of themselves than they were entitled to."

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish ... For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him" (John 3:16-17). We thank God that when He saw the faults He did not withdraw His love, and His way was to save what was soiled. God saw the broken lives and He is willing to touch and to heal. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. How to touch the unclean with a healing hand must be learnt in master class. It was the Master’s way."

"God’s love is seen in the Old Testament in parable and example. In the New it is seen in the person of His Son. When John recorded the saying, “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16) the sphere of His love is not confined to “the fathers” or even to Israel but it extends to the world. It is not limited to those who never fail or are faithless, but on the basis of faith is available to all. And when John recorded that God so loved the world, it does not only mean “so much” but “in this manner and to this extent”. God could give no more to redeem those who had strayed than that He did give, which was His all, His only begotten Son."

"The Lord is coming soon. We do not know how soon. What the Scripture says is that whenever he comes we must be ready for him. It is wondrous that God has shown confidence in us to call us to this work. Ours is the privilege of being asked to feel as He feels and to work with Him. But do we love Him enough to do it?"

"The truth is that to the degree we seek God and His righteousness He will supply not only our physical needs and our mental desires but also our highest spiritual aspirations. "Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and truly you shall be fed. Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart." (Psalm 37:3-4)."

"Just as, on a summer’s morn, the sun shines upon each droplet of dew and there are refracted from it all the colours of the rainbow, so shall we, if we are faithful, reflect the whole spectrum of the glory of God. And that will be perfection at last, and indeed."
