For Thy Sake

“And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favor in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the Lord hath blessed me for thy sake. And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.” (Genesis 30:27,28.)

The above words of Laban deserve to be noticed. This was a remarkable confession of Jacob’s uncle — “The Lord hath blessed me for thy sake.” Laban was not blessed for his own sake, nor on account of any good deeds he had done; but he was blessed “for the sake” of another. Was not God here setting forth under a figure the method or principle by which He was going to bless sinners, namely, for the sake of another who was dear to Him? Do not these words of Laban anticipate the Gospel? and point forward to the present time when we read “God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32), and again in 1 John 2:12 “your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.” Yes, this is the blessed truth foreshadowed in Genesis 30:27: God blessed Laban for Jacob’s sake. So again we read in Genesis 39:15 concerning Potiphar, “The Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake.” And again we have another beautiful illustration of this same precious fact and truth in 2 Samuel 9:1:

“And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake.”

Reader, have you apprehended this saving truth? That for which we are accepted and saved by God is, not any work of righteousness which we have done, nor even for our believing — necessary though that be — but simply and solely for Christ’s sake.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

“It is not a peace at any price which the Christian loves and aims to promote. No, indeed, that is a false peace, unworthy to be called peace at all.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

In Power

“When God’s Word comes to us “in power,” it comes as “a two-edged sword”—cutting, wounding, causing pain and deep distress. When the Word comes to us in power it is not due to any learning or eloquence of the preacher, nor to any pathos which he may employ. The fact that his hearers’ emotions are deeply stirred so that they are moved to tears, is no proof whatever that the gospel is come to them in divine efficacy: creature passions are often stirred by the actings of the stage and thousands are moved to weep in the theater. Such superficial emotionalism is but evanescent, having no lasting and spiritual effects. The test is whether we are broken and bowed before God.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

“One Lord, one faith, one baptism.” There may be different apprehensions of that Faith, different degrees of conformity to that Lord, different understandings of “baptism,” but that must not alienate the heart of one Christian from another. “One God, and Father of all,” whose family all the reconciled belong to; and should not the members of that family cherish one another! Let that sevenfold consideration animate each of us to live in peace and brotherly affection with our fellow-saints.

The unity of the Spirit differs from the oneness of the Body, in that while we may either keep or break the former, we can do neither the one nor the other with the latter. The responsibility of those reconciled to each other is, negatively, to avoid anything which would mar that unity; and positively, to engage in everything that would further it. Pride, self-will, envy, bigotry, fleshly zeal about comparative trifles, are the causes of most of the frictions and fractions among believers. “Only by pride comes contention.” (Proverbs 13:19). That is the most fertile root of all—offence is taken because I do not receive that notice to which I deem myself entitled, or I am hurt because I cannot have my own way in everything. “A whisperer separates chief friends” (Proverbs 16:28): but he can only do so by one giving ear to his malicious tales! An acquaintance of ours used to say unto those who come to her with evil reports of others, “Please take your garbage elsewhere: I decline to receive it.”

“Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you; leave there your gift before the altar and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift” (Matthew 5:23,24).

How emphatically that makes manifest the importance which God attaches to our keeping the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace! When that unity has been broken, He desires not our gifts. If you have done a brother an injury and he has just cause of complaint, peace has been disrupted, and the Holy One requires you to right that wrong before He will receive your worship.

“If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me” (Psalm 66:18).

God is as much the Father of the offended one as He is of you, and He will receive nothing at your hand until you remove that stumblingstone from before your brother. No worship or service can possibly be acceptable to God while I cherish a malicious spirit toward any of His children.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

“Nineteen centuries of Gospel preaching and Christian witnessing have failed to effect any real change in the world at large. The unrest of the world still continues, its hostility while not so open is yet just as real, and Christ is “hated” as bitterly as ever.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
