Page 125 - As ye know how we exhorted, and comforted, and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children, 12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
Page 303 - THIS interesting and attractive series of Stories for Young People is primarily intended, as the title imports, to inculcate in an unobtrusive manner the " Golden Rule." The old proverb saith truly, " Precepts may lead, but examples draw." It will be found that these Stories bear upon the cardinal elements of character — quietly and naturally showing the necessity of their culture— bringing out in a pleasant genial manner the teachings of experience, and the true aims of life.
Page 128 - For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.
Page 101 - Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Page 154 - But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak : for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
Page 100 - How long, how long? To-morrow, and to-morrow? Why not now? Why is there not this hour an end to my uncleanness?
Page 281 - Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
Page 138 - For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Page 144 - Two men went up into the temple to pray, the one a pharisee and the other a publican ; the pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican ; I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
Page 278 - CHRIST our passover is sacrificed for us ; therefore let us keep the feast ; Not with the old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness ; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
