The Precious Things of God

  • Publication Date: 1860
  • Pages: 444

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Intended as “not so much a systematic treatise of theology, as the companion, in his hours of devotional, meditative retirement of the experienced and spiritual Christian,” The Precious Things of God is written to remind readers of the unchanging goodness of God and his mercies. Winslow notes, that “ ‘the precious things of God’ which [this volume] unfolds may serve to shed the perfume and luster of Jesus’ name and work around his lone and pensive path—cheering solitude, soothing grief, and dissolving doubt, depression, and gloom.” Winslow discusses the preciousness of Christ, faith, trial, divine promise, Scripture, prayer, and more.

Born Again: From Grace to Glory

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In Born Again, Octavius Winslow examines the concept of spiritual regeneration, showing that “as the new birth is a spiritual work, the Holy Spirit must be its divine and sole author, from its commencement in grace to its consummation in glory.” With his characteristic warmth and devotional style, Winslow points readers to the finished work of Christ for their hope of salvation and new life. He notes, “realizing that you are clothed in white garments—that God looks upon you only in Christ, comely through his comeliness put upon you—you will daily clasp the girdle of prayer and faith round the robe of righteousness, and so walk with Jesus in all the growing holiness of a full, a free, a present justification of your soul by Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Octavius Winslow addresses the descriptions of Heaven in the Bible that are “of an obscure and negative character.” He notes that “the design of this little work is to serve a twofold, soul-animating, purpose—as a staff, aiding faith’s ascent of the glorious height of Pisgah; and then from its summit—as a glass, bringing nearer to its sanctifying and comforting view those sublime beauties and winning attractions of the ‘land which is very far off,’ an which, in our present imperfect state, are best understood and felt in their shadowy and negative forms.” Winslow discusses Heaven in terms of no more curse, night, sea, hunger and thirst, pain, tears, death, and temple.
