"Seeing then that we have a great high Priest...Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:14,16 Our great Helper in prayer is the Lord Jesus Christ, our [...]
Some time ago I watched a spider at work. On a bush near our picnic table he had stretched out his web; a four-inch diameter skein of gossamer-like threads, almost invisible to the human eye; and interlaced in such a fashion that not even the tiniest insect could ever hope to pass, but surely be [...]
"The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits." Daniel 11:32 The LORD is a man of war, "Jehovah is his name." Those who enlist under His banner shall have a Commander who will train them for the conflict and give them both vigour and valour. The times of which Daniel [...]
“Books are the legacies that the generation leave to mankind, to be delivered down from generation to generation as gifts to the living, and those yet unborn” [John Addison].

The life of Christ as the God-man was permeated with prayer. From the Gospels, we learn first of all that He prayed secretly: “In the morning, rising up a great while before day He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed” [Mark 1:35]. Secondly, He prayed submissively: “(He) prayed saying, [...]
“Concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” Isaiah 45:11 Our Lord spoke in this tone when He said, “Father, I will.” Joshua used it when, in the supreme moment of triumph, he lifted up his spear toward the setting sun, and cried, “Sun, stand thou still!” Elijah used it when he shut [...]
The first service of Toronto Free Presbyterian Church was held on Sunday, July 4, 1976. It so happens that the 45th. Anniversary occurs on Sunday, July 4, 2021. We shall recollect (DV) some of those exciting days in the next two issues. We have much for which to praise the Lord. A [...]
The fathers of the church are men of heart who naturally care for the souls of others. It is upon the father that the weight of the household falls, he goes forth in the morning to his daily labour, and he returns at night with the fruit of his toil for the support of [...]
