Looking unto Jesus


Looking unto Jesus

“They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.” Psalm 34:5

Suggested Further Reading:
 1 Timothy 2:1-7

See there he sits in heaven, he has led captivity captive, and now sits at the right hand of God, for ever making intercession for us. 

Can your faith picture him today? Like a great high priest of old, he stands with outstretched arms: there is majesty in his demeanour, for he is no mean cringing suppliant.

 He does not beat his breast, nor cast his eyes upon the ground, but with authority he pleads, enthroned in glory now. 


There on his head is the bright shining mitre of his priesthood, and look you, on his breast are glittering the precious stones whereon the names of his elect are everlastingly engraved; hear him as he pleads, hear you not what it is?—is that your prayer that he is mentioning before the throne?
 The prayer that this morning you offered before you came to the house of God, Christ is now offering before his Father’s throne. 

The vow which just now you uttered when you said, 
“Have pity and have mercy,”—he is now uttering there.
 He is the Altar and the Priest, and with his own sacrifice he perfumes our prayers. 

And yet, mayhap, you have been at prayer many a day, and had no answer; poor weeping suppliant, you have sought the Lord and he has not heard you, or at least not answered you to your soul’s delight; you have cried unto him, but the heavens have been as brass, and he has shut out your prayer, you are full of darkness and heaviness on account of this, 
“Look to him, and be lightened.” 

If you do not succeed, he will; if your intercession be unnoticed, his cannot be passed away; if your prayers can be like water spilt on a rock which cannot be gathered up, yet his prayers are not like that, he is God’s Son, he pleads and must prevail.

For meditation: 

The prayers of the true seeker and of believers are not a waste of effort; they are not like letters lost in the post, but reach the throne of God (Acts 10:4; Revelation 5:8). 

But only praying in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is accepted; prayers addressed to saints, to false gods or to the dead are always turned away—“not known here.”

Rain Without Clouds? Never!



Rain Without Clouds? Never!
"If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth"   (Ecclesiastes 11:3).

Why, then, do we dread the clouds which now darken our sky? True, for a while they hide the sun, but the sun is not quenched; He will shine out again before long.

 Meanwhile those black clouds are filled with rain; and the blacker they are, the more likely they are to yield plentiful showers. 
How can we have rain without clouds?

Our troubles have always brought us blessings, and they always will. They are the black chariots of bright grace. 
These clouds will empty themselves before long, and every tender herb will be the gladder for the shower.

 Our God may drench us with grief, but He will not drown us with wrath; nay, He will refresh us with mercy.
Our LORD's love letters often come to us in black-edged envelopes. 

His wagons rumble, but they are loaded with benefits. His rod blossoms with sweet flowers and nourishing fruits.
 Let us not worry about the clouds but sing because May flowers are brought to us through the April clouds and showers.

O LORD, the clouds are the dust of Thy feet! How near Thou art in the cloudy and dark day! Love beholds Thee and is glad. 
Faith sees the clouds emptying themselves and making the little hills rejoice on every side.

The church—conservative and aggressive



The church—conservative and aggressive

‘The church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.’ 1 Timothy 3:15

Suggested Further Reading:
 1 Corinthians 5:9–6:11

I remember a somewhat ludicrous incident which occurred to a church in which there were great quarrellings and bickerings. The minister and the deacons, and the people, were all at arm’s length, and daggers drawn.

 It was determined at last that the matter should come to a settlement, and it was by mutual consent given up to the judgment of a good Christian farmer, who lived in the neighbourhood. 

He was to hear the case, and write an answer to be read at the next church meeting. Our friend, the farmer, sat down to write his letter; at the same time he had a letter from a steward or tenant asking advice about his farm, and by a mistake, or rather by a blessed providence as God would have it, he put the wrong letters into the envelopes, so that the letter which was intended for the church went to the steward, and that which was intended for the steward went to the church. 

At the church meeting, when they were all assembled, this letter was read to the church; it ran thus: ‘Dear friend, mind you see to the hedges well. 

Keep them up as best you can, and take special care of the old black bull.’ Now that was a most extraordinary letter to write to a church. 

It had been sent by mistake, but the minister, thinking it was a bona fide piece of advice, said he could not comprehend it. Some brother got up and said it was plain enough; it was meant that they must be very watchful as to whom they should receive into the church. 

They must keep their hedges up and see there were no gaps. ‘And,’ said he, ‘by ‘the old black bull’ I have no doubt he means that spirit of Satan that would get in and trouble and divide us.’

 So understanding it in that sense they made up their difference, repaired their hedges, and were careful of ‘the old black bull.’ 
Every church must do the same.

For meditation:   

A church that is badly divided (1 Corinthians 1:10–12; 3:3–4; 6:1,6–8; 11:18–19) is a church that is ignorant of the ways of Satan and badly in need of appropriate instruction about him and his followers (1 Corinthians 7:5; 10:20–21; 
2 Corinthians 2:11; 11:3–4,14–15).

Christ—the power and wisdom of God



Christ—the power and wisdom of God

“Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 
1 Corinthians 1:24

Suggested Further Reading: 
Acts 10:34-43

Christ is the power of God, for he is the Creator of all things, and by Him all things exist. 

But when he came to earth, took upon himself the fashion of a man, tabernacled in the inn, and slept in the manger, 
he still gave proof that he was the Son of God; 
not so much so when, as an infant of a span long, the immortal was the mortal, and the infinite became a babe; 
not so much so in his youth, but afterwards when he began his public ministry, he gave abundant proofs of his power and godhead.

 The winds hushed by his finger uplifted, the waves calmed by his voice, so that they became solid as marble beneath his tread; the tempest, cowering at his feet, as before a conqueror whom it knew and obeyed; these things, these stormy elements, the wind, the tempest, and the water, gave full proof of his abundant power. 

The lame man leaping, the deaf man hearing, the dumb man singing, the dead rising, these, again, were proofs that he was the “power of God.” 

When the voice of Jesus startled the shades of Hades, and rent the bonds of death, with “Lazarus come forth!” and when the carcase rotten in the tomb woke up to life, there was proof of his divine power and godhead. 

A thousand other proofs he afforded; but we need not stay to mention them to you who have Bibles in your houses, and who can read them every day. 

At last he yielded up his life, and was buried in the tomb. 
Not long, however, did he sleep; for he gave another proof of his divine power and godhead, when starting from his slumber, he affrighted the guards with the majesty of his grandeur, not being held by the bonds of death, they being like green twigs before our conquering Samson, who had meanwhile pulled up the gates of hell, and carried them on his shoulders far away.

For meditation:

 This very same power of God is mighty to save believers through the gospel (Romans 1:16), is at work within them (Ephesians 1:19) and can enable them to fight the good fight of the faith against all evil powers (Ephesians 6:10-13).
