sermons on romans 15:4

)The BibleJ. This grace Scripture works in us through the encouragement which it ministers in manifold ways, and the result of both is hope. (2)Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob patiently waiting as sojourners with God, embracing the covenant promise in a strange land. And here we may observe that as books rise in the scale of excellence, they tend towards exhibiting a permanence and universality of interest. Some instruction, no doubt, is to be gathered from the literature of every people, but on the other hand, there is a great deal in the very finest uninspired literature that cannot be described as permanently or universally instructing; and, therefore, when the apostle says of a great collection of books of various characters and dates, and on various subjects, that whatsoever was contained in them had been set down for the instruction of men of another faith and a later age, we think it an astonishing assertion. And thus may we say of patience. (4)They stimulate us to rejoice under tribulations, because they make us like the prophets of old.2. (4) A patient performance of all Christian duties (Romans 2:7; Matthew 7:21; Hebrews 5:9; Revelation 22:14). It has formed the larger part of the religious note-book of the Christian Church, it has shaped Christian hopes, largely governed Christian legislation, supplied the language for Christian prayer and praise; the noblest and the saintliest souls have fed their souls on it. (2)As being children and heirs (Romans 8:17). They discover the foundation on which we must build it — the death and resurrection of Christ. Unless there be such a thing as inspiration of inveracity we must choose between the authority of some of our modern critics and any belief in inspiration — nay, more, any belief in the permanent value of the Scriptures as source of Christian instruction. How it sweetens life and lessens its ills! There is no flashing light on the surface of the mirror, but when it is turned full to the sun. They all come from my Father, and they all come for my good. It will be readily allowed that spiritual and eternal, not carnal and temporal, things are the objects of a Christian's hope — viz., God and His salvation (Lamentations 3:26), or the privileges and blessings of the gospel.2. )The Bible isJ. And thus may we say of patience. The Bible does not make light of this, but rather reveals the greatness and number of our sins. It sees them. (2)By revealing the design of God in our tribulations, and so sustaining the soul in steadfast resolve. There the soul that is weighed down by the burden of its sin, the heart that is broken learns how though its sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow. There must be in them some quality or qualities which warrant this lofty estimate. This difficulty Paul meets by laying down a broad principle which includes a great deal else besides. Historical books an exception.2. A people with a hope will purify themselves, and will in many other ways rise to a high and noble character. )Comfort of the ScripturesJ. The trustworthiness of the Old Testament is inseparable from the trustworthiness of our Lord.II. It comes to us with the power of —1. They furnish us with many and very bright examples (Hebrews 11:13, 16, 26).III. They furnish us with many and very bright examples (Hebrews 11:13, 16, 26).III. Nor has its Divine power departed; for it works the graces of the Spirit in those who receive it — patience, comfort, hope. (3) They procure for us the Holy Spirit, which removes the third hindrance — our depravity. THE MEANS THROUGH WHICH WE MAY RETAIN AS WELL AS ATTAIN IT. And if we can commit them to memory, so much the better. 1. In Macaulay's History, e.g., we read what he has to say about the events which he describes, and there is an end to it. ARE WE BURDENED UNDER A SENSE OF SIN? Certainly it gave him plenty of sea room.2. Scripture: Romans 4:1–5. "If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine."6. )The Scriptures the foundation of Christian hope, and patience a means of it: — These words in their connection show us that Christ and the great truths of Christianity are to be found where a superficial observer would not expect to find them. It points to One who can be touched in our behalf, who is our Captain and Deliverer.3. 5. (3) A patient exercise of all our Christian graces as occasions call them forth. (5) Above all, a patient endurance of afflictions, which are chastisements of our faults, trials of our grace, purifying fires; in this respect especially we have need of patience (Hebrews 10:36). We read the eleventh chapter of John, and are soothed by the sympathy there manifested.V. Experience.II. (1)The Holy Spirit, as the Comforter, uses them to that end. Tradition. They see the Captain of their salvation made perfect through sufferings.3. They furnish the seed and ground, as of faith, so of hope, in their doctrines, precepts, and promises, laying a foundation for faith, the root of hope, and showing us the way in which we may arrive at the object of it.4. (3)We enjoy present blessing, and therefore hope.Let us hold constant fellowship with the God of patience and Consolation, who is also the God of hope; and let us rise from stage to stage of joy as the order of the words suggests.(C. The Scriptures reveal the great object of this hope, and bring life and immortality to light, which neither the light of nature nor any other religion can do.2. Tradition. And thus may we say of patience. Could any moral human author ever have stood the test which the Old Testament has stood? (2)Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob patiently waiting as sojourners with God, embracing the covenant promise in a strange land. Those minute ritual directions of the law should bring before us first one and then another aspect of that to which assuredly they point — the redeeming worth of our Lord Jesus Christ.III. H. For a large part of it consists in sadly proving their spiritual state, and gazing at their failures and imperfections. Who can tell how many struggling souls have taken heart again as they pondered over the sweet stories of sorrow subdued which stud its pages, like stars in its firmament? And then, if the prophecies of the Bible are true, all else which it contains, we may be sure, is true.3. As to the respects in which patience is necessary, there must be —(1) A patient investigation and study of the Scriptures. If the dawn was so beautiful, what of the mid-day? It is a proclamation of mercy, a message — yea, many messages — from a loving Father.II. They discover the foundation on which we must build it — the death and resurrection of Christ. THE HOPE OF THE SCRIPTURES. Things written aforetime were written for our time. We should thank God, then, that He has given us His holy Church, Jewish and Christian, to be — "a witness and keeper" of His Word, thereby enabling us to know that, in believing it, we are not following "cunningly devised fables."2. HOW, THEN, SHOULD WE USE THE BIBLE SO AS TO PROVE THAT WE REALLY VALUE IT?1. Do not be perplexed because there are some things in the Bible which you cannot understand. Many a summer-holiday acquaintance we can well dismiss; but the friend that knows us, that sticketh closer than a brother, that is the same in winter and in summer, that is tenderer in affliction even than in joy, is a friend whose name will stand at the top, and will survive the going away of many whose affection was superficial, and whose relation to us, though ostentatious, was flimsy. We have similar instances in Psalm 22:8, 18; Psalm 69:21; Psalm 11:6, 7; Psalm 102:25, 26. I. THE TRUSTWORTHINESS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT.1. Such as they exhibit in examples. "Whatsoever things," etc. How it sweetens life and lessens its ills! And then, if the prophecies of the Bible are true, all else which it contains, we may be sure, is true. Lyth, D. D.In it —I. This second sense of Scripture is especially instructive as a guide to the knowledge and love of Christ, who is the end as of the law, so of the whole of the Old Testament, to every one that believeth. It points to One who can be touched in our behalf, who is our Captain and Deliverer.3. Hence we learn the vast importance of this hope; it is closely connected with the whole of religion. The friend that will sit up all night when we are in pain and weariness is not a friend we can easily cast off. They furnish the seed and ground, as of faith, so of hope, in their doctrines, precepts, and promises, laying a foundation for faith, the root of hope, and showing us the way in which we may arrive at the object of it.4. Lancaster, M.A. (3)The hope of the resurrection of the dead (Acts 23:6). (4)In waiting for Divine promises to be fulfilled.2. In Macaulay's History, e.g., we read what he has to say about the events which he describes, and there is an end to it. The first thing to notice, then, is how Scripture gives encouragement — for such, rather than consolation, is the meaning of the word. "Whatsoever things," etc. Parker, D. D.)Patience, comfort, hopeJ. He might have illustrated his point by referring to many acts in our Lord's life, but he refers to a passage in Psalm 69. instead. Nobody now expects to be instructed by the false Decretals. Nobody now expects to be instructed by the false Decretals. Promises in the sermon on the mount, and lessons from the lilies and the fowls. )The Holy Scriptures a source of comfortJ. (1)By calling us to the holiness which involves trial. But here is a Book which provides for human nature as a whole, which makes this profession with aa insight and faithfulness that does not belong to the most gifted. Many other cases are recorded, and these stimulate our courage.3. )The BibleJ. Promises in the sermon on the mount, and lessons from the lilies and the fowls. Could any moral human author ever have stood the test which the Old Testament has stood? )Comfort of the ScripturesJ. Unless there be such a thing as inspiration of inveracity we must choose between the authority of some of our modern critics and any belief in inspiration — nay, more, any belief in the permanent value of the Scriptures as source of Christian instruction. Full of comfort.4. Nobody, of course, would ever expect to find the second sense in an uninspired book, however well written. Also St. James, "If any man be a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like unto a man," etc.4. THAT THE JEWISH SCRIPTURES HAVE A WORLD-WIDE AND ENDURING VALUE. Dwelling on the letter of the narrative they missed its true and lasting but deeper import, the eternal witness that it bears to God's hatred of moral evil, and the duty of making war upon those passions which too easily erect their Jericho or their Ai within the Christian soul itself, and are only conquered by resolute perseverance and courage.3. A well-spring of comfort.4. Our minds are diverted from second causes to "It is the Lord." (1) The Christian life is a voyage, and hope an anchor (Hebrews 6:19), which we may not seem to want when wind and tide are for us; but when they are against us, it will be necessary to preserve us from losing the way we have made, from getting aground on the sand-banks of this world, from being dashed on the rocks of pride and self-confidence, or swallowed up in the whirlpools of despondency. Thus the first Christians (Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:4-8), and even pious Jews, expressed their desire (Psalm 17:15; Psalm 73:24).4. And we feel sure that all that is predicted will be fulfilled, just because all that was prophesied concerning the Jews, and Jerusalem, and Christ has been fulfilled. Nor has its Divine power departed; for it works the graces of the Spirit in those who receive it — patience, comfort, hope.3. Benson. The fruits of this hope are joy (Romans 5:1, 2), gratitude (1 Peter 1:3), humility, and patience (1 Thessalonians 1:3), not being weary of well-doing (Galatians 6:9; 1 Corinthians 15:58), aspiring after complete purity (1 John 3:3).6. (1)Enoch walking with God. H. How much need we all have of it! Lyth, D.D. In Macaulay's History, e.g., we read what he has to say about the events which he describes, and there is an end to it. It would be a poor aim to comfort only; but to encourage — to make strong in heart, resolved in will, and incapable of being crushed in spirit by any sorrows — that is a purpose worthy of the Book, and of the God who speaks through it. (1)They bid us rise above fear (Psalm 46:1-3). (1) These seal the doctrine which informs us about, eternal life and the way to it, and so remove the first great hindrance to our hope — our ignorance, and unbelief. Things written aforetime were written for our time. Patience is not blind to the many dark problems in the history of the world and in human nature. Try to see Jesus there, and to realise the work that He accomplished and the example that He set.(J. (2)They urge us to think little of all transient things. Ah, what a rich store of that is to be found in the Scriptures of God! It points to One who can be touched in our behalf, who is our Captain and Deliverer.3. Help to patience.3. Whatever is held by the heart is held longest. Many a summer-holiday acquaintance we can well dismiss; but the friend that knows us, that sticketh closer than a brother, that is the same in winter and in summer, that is tenderer in affliction even than in joy, is a friend whose name will stand at the top, and will survive the going away of many whose affection was superficial, and whose relation to us, though ostentatious, was flimsy. Do not be perplexed because there are some things in the Bible which you cannot understand. 4For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that through patience and through encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. The man who can stand up and say, "I have been in affliction, sorrow, darkness, weakness, poverty, and the Bible has proved itself to be a counsellor and light and guide and friend," is one of the best annotators the Bible ever had.(J. )The Bible isJ. But impatience scoffingly denies that there can be a God and a superintending Providence.2. Such a hope as they exhibit in the lives of saints. As — "The Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart." A solid foundation of hope.(J. All this great deliverance from Egypt and Babylonia, foreshadowed a greater deliverance beyond; all these elaborate rights of purification and sacrifice, which have no meaning apart from the one sacrifice for the sins of the whole world, and that succession of saints and heroes who, with all their imperfections, point onwards and upwards to One who dignifies their feebler and broken lives by making them in not a few respects anticipations of His glorious self. They see the Captain of their salvation made perfect through sufferings.3. This is the case within limits of our own Shakespeare. But as the subjects of this hope are already believers in Christ (Ephesians 1:3-7; Colossians 1:13), the attainment of these things is not properly the object of their hope, for these are already possessed; but a continuance of these blessings, together with guidance, protection, succour, and consolation in all difficulties and trials, timely deliverance from them, perfect holiness and meetness for heaven (Galatians 5:5), perseverance in grace, and, especially, eternal life (Titus 1:2), or the glory of God (1 Chronicles 5:2).3. If, then, these addresses and narratives were composed by some Jew, who lived many centuries after Moses, and imposed the book upon the conscience of the Jewish people as the work of Moses himself, such a representation is irreconcilable with the veracity of the book. (Canon Liddon. A lesson book of instruction.2. Such as they exhibit in examples. How many words of direction and encouragement meet us! His great dramatic creations we feel are only the workmanship of a very shrewd human observer, with the limitation of a human polar of view, and with the restrictive moral authority which is all that the highest human genius can claim. Tradition. E. Unless a book or a man be trustworthy, it is impossible to feel confidence in it or in him, and confidence is the very first condition of receiving instruction to any good purpose. ); a house not made with hands (2 Corinthians 5. II. Lancaster, M.A.There is much in this text as to the Scriptures.1. Such a hope as they produce. (6) But the word here used also means enduring, persevering to the end. Instruction.2. Nay, more, He went out of His way to sanction not a few portions of it which our modern scepticism too eagerly rejects. The Bible tells of "grace sufficient for thee."2. Do not be perplexed because there are some things in the Bible which you cannot understand. Submission would come easier if you took up some of those neglected duties, and you would be stronger for patience if you used more of your strength for service. Nov 27, 2005. But patience waits in quiet trust upon God for mysteries to be unfolded. This grace Scripture works in us through the encouragement which it ministers in manifold ways, and the result of both is hope. THE PROVISION GOD HAS MADE FOR OUR ATTAINING THIS HOPE IN GIVING US THE SCRIPTURES.1. (4) A patient performance of all Christian duties (Romans 2:7; Matthew 7:21; Hebrews 5:9; Revelation 22:14). Such as they exhibit in examples. Thus the first Christians (Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:4-8), and even pious Jews, expressed their desire (Psalm 17:15; Psalm 73:24).4. But this is not true of the Old Testament Scriptures. Always believe and you will always be glad and calm. Our minds are diverted from second causes to "It is the Lord." Hope. THE PROVISION GOD HAS MADE FOR OUR ATTAINING THIS HOPE IN GIVING US THE SCRIPTURES.1. These are patience, comfort, and hope. In Macaulay's History, e.g., we read what he has to say about the events which he describes, and there is an end to it. (4)Enlarge and confirm our knowledge.Thus, as we take food for nourishment every day, so shall the soul receive its proper aliment which will nourish it unto life eternal.3. (2) They expiate sin and procure our forgiveness, and so remove the second hindrance — our guilt and condemnation. Many are so, like David (Psalm 51). (5) Above all, a patient endurance of afflictions, which are chastisements of our faults, trials of our grace, purifying fires; in this respect especially we have need of patience (Hebrews 10:36). There is still comfort in the Scriptures. 2. )The Holy Scriptures a source of comfortJ. It is, moreover, a well-grounded and lively expectation of it, arising from our being entitled to it —(1)As justified (Titus 3:7). 1). These are patience, comfort, and hope. It is, moreover, a well-grounded and lively expectation of it, arising from our being entitled to it —(1)As justified (Titus 3:7). Parker, D.D.The psalmists never hesitated to say that the Bible, as they had it, met all life's deepest necessities: "This is my comfort in my affliction, for Thy word hath quickened me" (Psalm 119:50); "I remember Thy judgments of old, O Lord, and have comforted myself " (Psalm 119:52); "Unless Thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in my affliction" (Psalm 119:92); "Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet Thy commandments are my delights" (Psalm 119:143). "Why should a psalm written by David, and referring to David's circumstances more than a thousand years before, be thus used to pourtray the life and character of Jesus?" THE COMFORT OF THE SCRIPTURES.1. E. Vernon.Among the manifold changes and chances of this mortal life, there are three things which we all need, and which, the more we have, the happier we shall be. This is the text from which old Hugh Latimer was wont to preach continually in his latter days. If the spring was so trim, what of the harvest?(J. Parker, D. D.)Patience, comfort, hopeJ. Through the consolation of the Scriptures. Sayings that are handed on byword of mouth become altered; and so doubtless it would have been with God's words had He not caused them to be written, and then to be delivered to appointed guardians, charged to keep them inviolate. WHAT IS THE "HOPE" OF WHICH THE APOSTLE SPEAKS, AND HOW IT APPEARS THAT IT IS OF IMPORTANCE WE SHOULD POSSESS IT.1. He might have illustrated his point by referring to many acts in our Lord's life, but he refers to a passage in Psalm 69. instead. ARE WE ANXIOUS ABOUT TEMPORAL AFFAIRS? Parker, D. D.)Patience, comfort, hopeJ. Consider some of the truths which this statement seems to imply.I. We have similar instances in Psalm 22:8, 18; Psalm 69:21; Psalm 11:6, 7; Psalm 102:25, 26. Sayings that are handed on byword of mouth become altered; and so doubtless it would have been with God's words had He not caused them to be written, and then to be delivered to appointed guardians, charged to keep them inviolate. Nay, more, He went out of His way to sanction not a few portions of it which our modern scepticism too eagerly rejects. Thus the first Christians (Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:4-8), and even pious Jews, expressed their desire (Psalm 17:15; Psalm 73:24).4. (2) A patient progress through the various parts of Christian experience; we cannot step at once from our first awakening into glory. Beeby. "Christ has delivered us from the law." Such as they produce. Thus it is mentioned as a fruit of hope (1 Thessalonians 1:3) and as a cause of it (Romans 5:2).2. Could any moral human author ever have stood the test which the Old Testament has stood? But patience waits in quiet trust upon God for mysteries to be unfolded. The Scriptures reveal the great object of this hope, and bring life and immortality to light, which neither the light of nature nor any other religion can do.2. (4) Christ, as "the first-fruits of them that sleep," is our forerunner, giving us an example of immortality being destined for man.3. Also St. James, "If any man be a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like unto a man," etc.4. "Why should a psalm written by David, and referring to David's circumstances more than a thousand years before, be thus used to pourtray the life and character of Jesus?" (1)The Holy Spirit, as the Comforter, uses them to that end. Such as they produce. Patience is not blind to the many dark problems in the history of the world and in human nature. It comes to us with the power of —1. On the other hand, what mischief impatience does! It gives bright examples, too, of many who "out of weakness were made strong."III. Support of hope.Let us take one branch — the "comfort of the Scriptures." A lesson book of instruction.2. Many other cases are recorded, and these stimulate our courage.3. A school of patience.3. Patience. Impatience turns away in a rage from these and takes refuge in the dreary darkness of unbelief. Such a hope as they hold forth. Patience. Thus the first Christians (Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:4-8), and even pious Jews, expressed their desire (Psalm 17:15; Psalm 73:24).4. "(2) Put no forced construction on any part that will contradict other portions. Patience —(1)Under every appointment of the Divine will. (1) These seal the doctrine which informs us about, eternal life and the way to it, and so remove the first great hindrance to our hope — our ignorance, and unbelief. The neglect of this secondary and spiritual sense of Scripture has sometimes led Christians to mis-apply the Old Testament very seriously. The Holy Scriptures produce and ripen the noblest graces. ); a prepared place (John 14). A book of which all this can be said the world will not willingly let die. (3)David strengthening himself in God. Or if a striking prediction in Daniel 8 about Antiochus Epiphanes was really written after the event, the book in which it occurs is not a trustworthy book. Scripture: Romans 3:20–4:5. For what has it been to the Jewish people through the tragic vicissitudes of their wonderful history — to Christendom for nineteen centuries? THE COMFORT OF THE SCRIPTURES.1. The trustworthiness of the Old Testament is inseparable from the trustworthiness of our Lord.II. Hence we learn the vast importance of this hope; it is closely connected with the whole of religion. The Christian hope is an earnest desire after this, in consequence of a discovery of its great excellency, by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:9, 10). Beeby.I. How it sweetens life and lessens its ills! "Through patience," etc.1. "Whatsoever things," etc. Paul has found, and if we only put it to the proof we shall also find, that the simple exercise of simple faith fills the soul with "all joy and peace." How much need we all have of it! WE CONVERSE WITH THE PAST — acquiring lessons of —1. If we can look back and say, "Thou hast been with me in six troubles," it is good logic to look forward and say, "and in seven Thou wilt not forsake me."II. His great dramatic creations we feel are only the workmanship of a very shrewd human observer, with the limitation of a human polar of view, and with the restrictive moral authority which is all that the highest human genius can claim. Lancaster, M.A. Hope. But this is not true of the Old Testament Scriptures. Patience finds difficulties in God's Word, mysteries too deep for human intellect. Our minds are diverted from second causes to "It is the Lord." It is "in believing," not in certain other exercises of mind, that these blessings are to be realised. (3)As being, in a measure at least, prepared for it, in proportion to our sanctification and recovery of God's image (Colossians 1:12). There must be in them some quality or qualities which warrant this lofty estimate. Ah, what a rich store of that is to be found in the Scriptures of God! And yet by what an interval is Shakespeare parted from the books of the Hebrew Scriptures! Lyth, D.D.1. Do not be perplexed because there are some things in the Bible which you cannot understand. (3)They command us to find our joy in God. "If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine."6. Thus in the Book of Deuteronomy, long addresses are ascribed to Moses, and Moses describes a series of events of which he claims to have been an eyewitness. (2)Under human persecution and satanic opposition. We have seen that the bridge by which sorrow led to hope was perseverance and courage; in this second analysis of the origin of hope, joy and peace are the bridge by which faith passes over into it. A well-spring of comfort.4. Vernon. This grace Scripture works in us through the encouragement which it ministers in manifold ways, and the result of both is hope. (1)The hope of salvation (1 Thessalonians 5:8). So then "the darkness and the light are both alike" to our hope, in so far as each may become the occasion for its exercise. Dwelling on the letter of the narrative they missed its true and lasting but deeper import, the eternal witness that it bears to God's hatred of moral evil, and the duty of making war upon those passions which too easily erect their Jericho or their Ai within the Christian soul itself, and are only conquered by resolute perseverance and courage.3. A book of which all this can be said the world will not willingly let die. (2)"The blessed hope, and the appearing of "our Lord" (Titus 2:13). Although we talk much about the blessing of an "open Bible," yet to a large number the Bible is kept like some rare treasure to be looked at, not used. Macafee. THE MEANS THROUGH WHICH WE MAY RETAIN AS WELL AS ATTAIN IT. Thus, for instance, both the soldiers of Raymond of Toulouse and the Puritans appealed to the early wars of the Israelites as a sanction for indiscriminate slaughter. Thus it is mentioned as a fruit of hope (1 Thessalonians 1:3) and as a cause of it (Romans 5:2).2. Lyth, D. D.)The value and use of the BibleJ. )The Holy Scriptures a source of comfortJ. Such as they produce by their influence. Lyth, D. D.In it —I. A lesson book of instruction.2. Scripture is intended to work in us a good hope. )The Bible isJ. We should read it every day. Yet it is full of comfort, telling of the way of forgiveness, pointing to the fountain opened. (1)We see what God has done for His people, and therefore hope. (4)The hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). Then, further, the courage thus born of the Scriptures produces another grand thing — patience, or rather perseverance. (4)Our joyous experience is the best testimony to the consoling power of the Holy Scriptures.III. Parts of the Bible may be hard to understand, but none, however unlearned, ever yet studied it, prayerfully and humbly, without finding that it built them up in faith and love. E. Vernon.Among the manifold changes and chances of this mortal life, there are three things which we all need, and which, the more we have, the happier we shall be. "We are under the law to Christ." They furnish us with many and very bright examples (Hebrews 11:13, 16, 26).III.
