Faith in Christ Inferred from Faith in God

Faith in Christ Inferred from Faith in God by Matthew Henry.Faith in Christ Inferred from Faith in God

Matthew Henry, in an exposition of John 14:1: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me,” makes plain that a person cannot simply believe in God, but must also believe in Jesus Christ. The “natural religion” of belief in God cannot Biblically stand without the revealed religion of Jesus Christ. In the first part he describes the objects of our faith, the Father and the Son. In the second part he shows the acts of our faith in Christ must be the same as our acts of our faith in God. In the third part he shows the necessary connection between believing in God and believing in Jesus Christ.

A Church in the House by Matthew Henry.A Church in the House

Matthew Henry describes how carrying on family devotions is like having a small church in your house. He answers the questions: What is a church in your house? What are the motives and advantages? What are the practical steps?

A Gift for Mourners

A Gift for MournersA Gift for Mourners by Richard Cecil and John Flavel. Letters by John Newton and Jonathan Edwards.

Richard Cecil proclaims: “Let us study the heavenly science of gaining by losses, and rising by depressions.” Death and mourning produce “a cry, which, while it rouses the sleeper, fills his eyes with tears and his heart with pangs; often produces such views of God, of the present, and of the eternal state,” like nothing else. John Flavel outlines many practical aspects of mourning in a healthy manner. John Newton’s letter urges readers to keep a balance between overvaluing and undervaluing social relationships. Jonathan Edwards’ letter emphasizes that the Lord Jesus Christ is our portion, rest, hope, and joy. This is a book of rich scriptural help and advice for mourning; much of which can be applied to any affliction.

Little Rosa, Gentleman Jim & The Story Lizzie Told

Little Rosa, Gentleman Jim & The Story Lizzie Told by Elizabeth Prentiss. Little Rosa, Gentleman Jim & The Story Lizzie Told

LITTLE ROSA’s mother promised that God would take care of the children, but doubts grew as the days went by living with a harsh father. The man upstairs passed away and told Rosa to take good care of his brown pitcher. She was obedient, but later on she found a big surprise.

GENTLEMAN JIM was thought to be a perfect match for a sweet girl who attracted attention. Clumsy Joe was attracted to her also, and became an example of sacrificial love.

THE STORY LIZZY TOLD was about what happened when she grew up. When her father brought home a plant for Lizzie to enter in a flower show, Lizzie continued to tell the story of the disappointing and surprising events that followed. The story came from a letter about the actual yearly exhibition of the “Society for the Promotion of Window Gardening among the Poor,” in Dean’s Close at Westminster’s Abby.
