Love & Friendship . . . “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Proverbs 17:17

The Lord Jesus Christ is the “friend of sinners”, Who loved His own before the world began, loved them while they were yet sinners, and loves them to the end.    Christ is the Son of God and the firstborn among many brethren.  He is the Elder Brother Who was born for adversity; born to bear the sin of God’s people.  He is that Friend that sticketh closer than a brother.  He will never forsake His friends and brothers.  May we be the same friend and brother to our brethren, loving them in the depth of their sins, loving them fervently¸ loving them when they need it most, loving them when they are experiencing great adversity and trouble. Let us love at all times, for we were born again for these times. 


(Amos 7:8)  "Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel." 

The plumb of lead falls in a straight line, and therefore the line is the best test as to whether a wall is truly perpendicular. The plumbline shows whether it bows outward, or inclines inward. It never flatters, but by its own certainty of truth it reveals and condemns all deviations from uprightness: such is the judgment of the Most High. 

When a man is afraid of self-examination, his fear is suspicious. He who does not dare to apply the plumbline to his wall may rest assured that it is out of perpendicular. A sincere man will pray, "Lord, let me know the worst of my case." It is far better to suffer needless distress than to be at ease in Zion, and then perish of the dry-rot of self-deceit. 

(Hosea 10:12)  "Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you." 

What would we think of a farmer who allowed his finest fields to lie fallow year after year? Yet men neglect their souls; and besides being unprofitable, these inward fields become full of weeds, and exceedingly foul. You see to everything else, will you not see to your souls? It is God who calls you to break up the fallow ground of your uncultivated heart, and he waits to aid you therein. Regard attentively the argument which he uses: "for it is time to seek the Lord."
C.H. Spurgeon


That will be a wretched day for the church of God when she begins to think any aberration from the truth of little consequence.  J. H. Evans 


Sinners on earth are always punished less, and in hell never more, than their iniquities deserve.  Benjamin Beddome 


Robert Murray McCheyne (1813-1843)

When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon radiant sun,
When I stand with Christ on high,
Looking o'er life's history,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know,
Not 'til then, how much I owe.

When I stand before Thy throne
Dressed in beauty not my own,
When I see Thee as Thou art,
Love Thee with unsinning heart,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know,
Not 'til then, how much I owe.

Chosen not for good in me,
Wakened up from wrath to flee,
Hidden in the Saviour's side,
By His Spirit sanctified;
Teach me, Lord, on earth to show
By Thy love, how much I owe.

(Tune: "Rock of Ages")

(Acts 10:33)  "Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God."
