Arthur Gook, missionary to Iceland, tells this story in Can a Young Man Trust His God? “A man attending gospel meetings at Akureyri became anxious about his spiritual state and felt the need of help, but couldn’t pluck up the courage to ask. He was leaving for a prolonged stint some distance away and the morning he was to leave decided to visit me. I knew nothing of his concern and had decided that day to cross the ice on the fjord to arrange for meetings there. I was nearly across when the ice gave way and I plunged into the water. Happily, it was at a place where the fjord wasn’t too deep...

We have come far short of the example of the apostles, much more of Christ; we are far behind the servants, much farther behind the Master. We have had little of the grace, the compassion, the meekness, the lowliness, the love of God’s eternal Son. His weeping over Jerusalem is a feeling in which we have but little heartfelt sympathy. His passion to “seek…the lost” is little imitated by us. His unwearied teaching of the multitudes we shrink from, as too much for flesh and blood. His days of fasting, His nights of watchfulness and prayer, are not realized as models for us to copy. His...

“He who waters will also be watered himself” (Proverbs 11:25). When the Lord has given blessing by a tract or little book, Do not leave it idly lying in some soon-forgotten nook. There are others to be watered, lost and hungry souls to feed; Seek to share the grace and blessing that has reached you in your need. With its freshness yet upon you, ere the first glad glow has gone, Let your heart look up for guidance that your hand may pass it on; Then that one from you receiving blessing, gaining just like you, Can then keep the blessing flowing, and still pass it on anew. When the day of light...

“…Seed to the sower, and bread to the eater” (Isa 55:10-11). “Now he that ministers seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown” (2 Cor 9:10). Two passages—one from the gospel prophet, Isaiah, and one from the evangelist to the Gentiles, Paul—are linked by the common idea of combining bread for food and seed for sowing. The Isaiah passage is a promise; the Corinthian verse is a prayer. In Bible days, if a farmer didn’t sow seed, he had two problems: no seed for his fields and no bread for his table. Is there a lesson here for us? If we are not in the...

On the last day of September 1816, Robert Moffat sailed from London for South Africa. Proceeding to Namaqualand on the west coast, he there acquired the Dutch language. While residing with a Boer farmer, he was asked to conduct a “service” in the house. Moffat requested that the master call his servants. “Do you mean the Hottentots?” replied the Boer with a sneer. “We may as well call in the dogs.” Moffat made no answer, but, after prayer, opened his Bible and read the story of the Syro-Phoenician woman, taking as his text her words to the Savior, “Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs...

Whatever you know of God’s truth, do it. That is what the disciples were told in John 2:5, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” Above all, it is what the Lord says, “You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you” (Jn 15:14). We never read of purifying our souls in hearing the truth; we do read of those who purified their souls in obeying it (1 Pet 1:22). “He that has My commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves Me” (Jn 14:21). Obedience, you see, is the test of love. God has joined the two together. If we want to know the extent of our devotion to Christ, it can be exactly...
