Church of God, Lectures on the
DescriptionLecture I: One Body - its practical consequences, and showing its bearing upon the communion and the conduct of every member of it, that is, of every Christian.
Lecture II: One Spirit - ought to be the business of every Christian man, not in word only, but in deed and in truth-to assert the rights of the Spirit of God in the church of God.
Lecture III: The Assembly and Ministry They are founded both of them upon His work, as an accomplished fact; they are derived from Him in His present place of exaltation at the right hand of God; they are established for the express object of magnifying the Lord Jesus, even as they are now called in a very direct way to subserve His Lordship.
Lecture IV: Worship, Breaking of Bread, and Prayer It most of all concerns us, because it most nearly touches God himself; and this, I am convinced, is the truest criterion, as well as the safest and most salutary for our souls.
Lecture V: Gifts and Local Charges Attached to Christ as their source, they (at any rate gifts) flow down from the same reservoir of rich grace on high, whence all the main characteristic blessings of the church proceed.
Lecture VI: The Resource of the Faithful in the Ruins of Christendom To those who for the sake of the Lord and the truth deplore and refuse to have fellowship with the current practice of Christendom, there may be a certain necessity to give as strong proofs as may be of these evils which now abound, and of which the word of God forewarned when they were but in the germ.
