A Precious Truth Worth More than A World

Thomas Brooks: “Know for your comfort that this imputed righteousness of Christ will answer to all the fears, doubts, and objections of your souls. How shall I look up to God? The answer is “in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.” How shall I have any communion with a holy God in this world? The answer […]


C.H. Spurgeon: “God Himself, at one time, seemed to be against us: the ten great cannon of His Law were turned against our walls; all heaven and earth mustered for battle; God Himself was against us, at least, so conscience reported from her look-out. But, now, at this moment, having believed in Jesus Christ, we […]

Joy in Christ Crucified

A Simple Act of Kindness

"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.  Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets […]

The saints of old have always placed their happiness, peace, and comfort in their perfect and complete justification, rather than in their imperfect and incomplete sanctification . . . that text is worthy to be written in letters of gold: "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord," saith the sound believer, "my soul shall be […]

A Mine Of Daily Comfort

"Looking unto Jesus." Hebrews 12:2 If we would look rightly to Jesus—we must look daily to His life of intercession in heaven, as our principal provision of strength and help. We surely feel that we need Almighty help every day we live. Even when started in the narrow way of life, with pardon, grace, and […]

A Puritan’s Prayer: Comforts

Giver of All Good, Streams upon streams of love overflow my path.     Thou hast made me out of nothing,     hast recalled me from a far country, hast translated me from ignorance to knowledge,     from darkness to light,     from death to life,     from misery to peace,     from folly to wisdom, […]
