Our Saviour will have us pray, ‘Give us bread this day,’ to teach us to live every day as if it were our last.
Promises are obligatory. If God has passed a promise, He cannot go back.
Ministers should be stars to give light, not clouds to obscure the truth.
Thomas Watson, The Beatitudes: An Exposition of Matthew 5.1-12 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2014), 156.
Prayer is the key of heaven; the Spirit helps faith to turn this key.
Jesus Christ is tender without being weak, strong without being coarse, lowly without being servile. He has conviction without intolerance, enthusiasm without fanaticism, holiness without Pharisaism, passion without prejudice. This man alone never made a false step, never struck a jarring note. His life alone moved on those high levels where local limitations are transcended and the absolute Law of Moral Beauty prevails. It was life at its Highest.
