The Silver Lining

The Silver LiningThe Silver Lining: Messages of Hope and Cheer by John H. Jowett.

Knowing the silver lining in life requires the discernment of Biblical principles. This book shows applications of Romans 8:28 with examples to help a person rest in God. Sorrow can accomplish what comfort and calm prosperity would always fail to do, because sometimes the tempest is needed to bring out the power and strength in one’s music. Loneliness has the silver lining of drawing us to the presence of the understanding Lord. Waiting produces eagles wings which moves our mind to things above. Clouds in life are a dwelling place of God and bring “fertilizing rains”—“The cloud experience is the minister not only of enrichment, but of enlargement.” John J. Jowett brings messages of encouragement and joy to help a believer know God’s goodness.

A Treatise on Self-Knowledge

A Treatise on Self-KnowledgeA Treatise on Self-Knowledge by John Mason.

John Mason states: “Self-Knowledge is the subject of this Treatise; a subject which, the more we think of it, the more important and extensive it appears: so important, indeed, that every branch of it seems absolutely necessary to the right government of the life and temper.” This concept is woven into of many spiritual pursuits like relationships, knowing and using talents, knowing weaknesses, confessing pride, temptations to avoid, thinking on the excellent, examining yourselves, proving your own work, and dealing with peaceful prosperity and adverse provocation. “Self-Knowledge,” John Mason’s most notable work, inspires thinking on this often disregarded subject. This edition contains the quotations and the study questions that were found in some earlier editions.

Complete Title: A Treatise on Self-Knowledge Showing the Nature and Benefit of that Important Science, and the Way to Attain It: Intermixed with Various Reflections and Observations on Human Nature.

A Discourse on Meekness and Quietness of Spirit

A Discouorse on Meekness and Quietness of SpiritA Discourse on Meekness and Quietness of Spirit by Matthew Henry.

Matthew Henry defines practical meekness and shows how valuable it is. He explains Bible verses related to meekness and how Biblical characters exhibited meekness. Meekness “is one of the members of the new man, which we must put on. Put it on as armor, to keep provocations from the heart, and so to defend the vitals.” Also “If there be any vindication or avenging necessary, (which infinite Wisdom is the best judge of) he can do it better than we can; therefore “give place unto wrath,” that is, to the judgment of God, which is according to truth and equity; make room for him to take the seat, and do not you step in before him.” The text was relatively updated by the American Tract Society.

Memoir of Rev. Samuel Kilpin

Memoir of Rev. Samuel KilpinMemoir of Rev. Samuel Kilpin by American Tract Society and Samuel Kilpin.

Samuel Kilpin (1774–1830) was born in Bedford, England. He was a Baptist pastor who had a burning desire to be used by God and to preach the Gospel to lost souls. He especially loved children and orphans. His efforts were a blessing to so many that he had to use the rooms of his house for teaching. His life was exemplary: “He had a list of names, personal friends and their families, whom he presented daily to his God . . . none were erased until they had left this world for a better.” Also, “We enjoy no more than we are thankful for . . . but not one is enjoyed except our eyes see the Giver, and our lips acknowledge His goodness.” His earnest desire was not to be accounted a great man, but a useful man. This literally was his wish, and it was granted.
