Personal Reformation, Part 2

This is part 2 of Robert Murray M'Cheyne's Personal Reformation. This section deals primarily with prayer as a means of grace and of keeping the heart. 

I ought not to omit any of the parts of prayer—confession, adoration, thanksgiving, petition, and intercession.

I ought to pray before seeing any one. 

“Often when I sleep long, or meet with others early, and then ha...

Robert Murray M'Cheyne (1813-1843) was the minister of St. Peter's Church Dundee from 1836 to 1843.

His short life was marked by his communion with the Lord, his commitment to a life of holiness, and his compassion for lost souls. M'Cheyne often prayed, "Lord, make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be made." For M'Cheyne, suc...

Read Luke 5:1-11On one occasion, while the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 and he saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. 4 And when he had...

I pray that you are all warm and safe during this cold winter day in Alabama. Please let myself or the elders know if you need anything.I am working through reading the New Testament this year.

Ryle shares devotional thoughts on each passage in the gospels. Ryle is a reliable, tr...

This morning, I would like to share with you two writings on the topic of suffering in the Christian life. One from Charles Spurgeon (English Pastor in 1800s) and another one from Samuel Rutherford (Scottish Pastor in 1600s). They help us keep a biblical perspective on the trials and sorrows that we experience as we follow the Lord and seek to honor him. As painful as trials are, we know that through them we live closer to Christ and are conformed more to His ...

A Word of Encouragement: Expository Preaching

I wanted to encourage you this morning with some thoughts from my reading this week. I have been reading a book by Dr. Steven J. Lawson titled, “Famine in the Land: A Passionate Call for Expository Preaching.” He argues that we are living in a time of "famine" rather than "feasting" when it comes to the preaching and hearing of God's Word. Many churches have lost their confidence in the power and sufficiency of God's Wor...
