In the WIlderness

Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to betempted of the devil. Matt. 4:1.Jesus was led up of the Spirit into the wilderness, that he might there fast and be tempted; but no one should imitate Christ's example of his own choice and make it a selfish and arbitrary fasting; but instead wait for the Spirit, who will send him
Put on, therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another.Colossians 3:12-13.Observe the tender and sacred style of the apostle's admonition. He does not drive us with the law, but persuades by reminding us of the ineffable
Now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love). 1 Cor. 13:13Paul's statement that love is greater than faith and hope is intended as an expression of the permanence, or eternal duration of love. Faith, being limited as to time in comparison with love, ranks beneath it for the reason of this temporary
The third day there was a marriage in Carta in Galilee; andthe mother of Jesus was there: and both Jesus was called, andhis disciples, to the marriage. John 2: 1-2.It is indeed a high honour paid to married life for Christ himself to attend this marriage, together with his mother and hisdisciples. His mother is present as the one arranging the
Now it is not sufficient for anyone, and it does him no good to recognize God in his glory and majesty, unless he recognizes him in the humility and shame of the cross. Thus God destroys the wisdom of the wise, as Isa. [45:15] says, “Truly, thou art a God who hidest thyself.” (Luther's Works 31:52) In theological theses prepared for

Saved How?

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."Isaiah
There came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born king of the Jews? for we have seenhis star in the east, and are come to worship him. Matt. 2:1-2.How these wise men could see in this star a sign that unmistakably signified a new-born king, I do not know. Perhaps they read in their histories and chronicles that

In the Beginning

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1.That this gospel may be more easily understood, we must go back to the passages of the Old Testament upon which it is founded, namely, the beginning of the first chapter of Genesis. "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth; and God said, Let

Born To US

Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11.Faith comes first, and it is proper that we recognize it as themost important in every word of God. The right and graciousfaith which God demands is, that you firmly believe that Christis born for you, and that his birth took place for your welfare.The
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of theworld. John 1:29.By this John means to say: I have, by my teaching, madeyou all sinners, having condemned your works and told you todespair of yourselves. But in order that you may not alsodespair of God, I will show you how to get rid of your sinsand obtain salvation. Not that you can
