Free Friday! Jesus of Nazareth

free_friday_med

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $3.95, is Jesus of Nazareth by John Albert Broadus. Click here to download.

The humility of Jesus stood in striking contrast to rabbinical and Pharisaic pride. Men often greatly wondered at his words and actions, his wisdom and power; they compared him to the most celebrated prophets, they expected him to become a more splendid king than David or Solomon; but he was gentle and humble. Moreover, he himself made the most extraordinary claims. “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory; and before him shall be gathered all the nations.” “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.” “No one knoweth the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him.” Yet in immediate connection with this great claim he said, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart.” It was indeed Jesus who caused humility to be classed among the virtues. The Greek word thus translated had in Greek literature almost always a bad sense, at best sometimes denoting modesty, the absence of arrogance; the Latin word which we borrow made no approach to a good sense; Christianity gives to humility a notable position among virtues and graces.

Jesus of Nazareth is based on three series of lectures given at the YMCA of Johns Hopkins University in March 1890. Broadus touches on three aspects of Jesus’s Personal Character, Jesus’s Ethical Teachings, and Jesus’s Supernatural Works. A warm and rich devotional reading that provides an overview of Jesus’s earthly life.

John Broadus (1827-1895) is best known for his Treatise On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons, it has been revised and edited many many times. He also published Lectures on the History of Preaching(1876, revised, 1896); A Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew (1886); Sermons and Addresses(1886); Jesus of Nazareth (1890); Memoir of James Petigru Boyce (1893); and the Harmony of the Gospels (1893). Served as Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Homiletics, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 1859-1895.

Free Friday! Christ’s Words from the Cross

free_friday_med

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $9.95, is Christ’s Words from the Cross by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Click here to download.

Now the prayer of Christ had a great spirituality of aim. You notice that nothing is sought for these people but that which concerns their souls, “Father, forgive them.” And I believe the church will do well when she recollects that she wrestles not with flesh and blood, nor with principalities and powers, but with spiritual wickedness, and that what she has to dispense is not the law and order by which magistrates may be upheld, or tyrannies pulled down, but the spiritual government by which hearts are conquered to Christ, and judgments are brought into subjection to His truth. I believe that the more the church of God strains after, before God, the forgiveness of sinners, and the more she seeks in her life-prayer to teach sinners what sin is, and what the blood of Christ is, and what the hell is that must follow if sin be not washed out, and what the heaven is which will be ensured to all those who are cleansed from sin, the more she keeps to this the better.

In this little book from the Prince of Preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon discusses the seven words that Christ uttered from the Cross: Forgiveness, Salvation, Affection, Anguish, Suffering, Victory and Contentment.

Few people in history can be known by one name and have it ring true with their audience, and “Spurgeon” is one of them. Over time, Spurgeon has become known and revered as the “Prince of Preachers“. In the last 200 years he has been one of the most influential men for not only Preachers of the Gospel but for those who have not had the opportunity to hear and receive the Gospel message. He wrote tirelessly over his life, and WORDsearch Bible Software is committed to bring as many of Spurgeon’s works as possible to you in electronic form.

Free Friday! Words of Counsel for Christian Workers

free_friday_med

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $4.95, is Words of Counsel for Christian Workers by Charles H. Spurgeon. Click here to download.

We ought to remember that we are the messengers of God’s mercy to the sons of men. “The Lord being merciful unto him.” The angels had not come to Lot of themselves; they were the embodiment and outward display of God’s mercy. Christians in the world should view themselves as manifestations of God’s mercy to sinners, instruments of grace, servants of the Holy Spirit. Now mercy is a nimble attribute. Justice lingers; it is shod with lead, but the feet of mercy are winged. Mercy delights to perform its office. So should it be with us a delight to do good to men. God can save men without instruments, but He very seldom does it. His usual rule is to work by means. Oh that the mercy of God would work mightily by us! Let us remember, as we mingle with society, that God has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation.

Although the Prince of Preachers Charles Haddon Spurgeon lived before the advent of the modern emphasis on psychology and counseling, he had deep insights into mental and spiritual elements of mankind. He experienced many of the trials of life that others encounter, both mentally and physically. In Words of Counsel for Christian Workers, Spurgeon writes about “hard work and its reward”, “workers reading to profit”, “saving a soul from death”, “restoring those who have erred”, “a great leader and good soldiers”, etc.

Few people in history can be known by one name and have it ring true with their audience, and “Spurgeon” is one of them. Over time, Spurgeon has become known and revered as the “Prince of Preachers“. In the last 200 years he has been one of the most influential men for not only Preachers of the Gospel but for those who have not had the opportunity to hear and receive the Gospel message. He wrote tirelessly over his life, and WORDsearch Bible Software is committed to bring as many of Spurgeon’s works as possible to you in electronic form. It is estimated that over his lifetime he preached to over 10,000,000 people.
