Murdoch Campbell

Introduction and a Brief Bio:

Murdoch Campbell was arguably the greatest Scottish Devotional writer of the the 20th Century. His books simple style have comforted many of the Lord’s People. I must admit that Memories of a Wayfaring Man is probably one of the most cherished and beneficial books I have ever read. Murdoch Campbell was also deeply aware of the history of Christ cause in the Highlands and there are numerous memories of it in his auto-biography as well as the book he devoted to the subject (Gleanings of Highland Harvest) shows a deep appreciation for the cause of Christ and a desire to preserve the memories of God’s work in the Highlands for the generations to come. It is his profound love for Christ and His Church coupled with his tender devotional style that has led me to publish this blog. I want others to glean from the spiritual depth and Highland religion of Murdoch Campbell.

Rev. Murdoch Campbell was born in Ness on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. From an early age he had deep religious impressions. He would eventually be converted and study Divinity at the Free Church College, having a summer Pastorate in Fort William (as a student), Ontario and charges as an Ordained Minster in the Free Church of Scotland at Fort Augustus, Partick-Highland (Glasgow) and Resolis in Ross-shire . He was known for preaching in a deeply spiritual way to the soul of the Lord’s people as well as calling those who were unconverted to repentance and Faith in Christ. He is best remembered for his numerous devotional books on various subjects and his Spiritual Auto-biography Memories of a Wayfaring Man, as well as numerous other books.(which will be listed later.)

Covenant: What is Reformed Theology? with R.C. Sproul

Presented by Ligonier Ministries (YouTube) Description: Are we as Christians saved by works, or by faith alone? The key to understanding what part works and faith play in the drama of redemption is to understand the biblical structure and role of covenants. Without a proper understanding of covenants we fail to grasp the grandeur of Christ’s life and work. In this message, Dr. Sproul gives us the covenantal framework of redemption that finds full resolution in the work of Christ. Direct Link:  Covenant: What is Reformed Theology? with R.C.

C.H. Spurgeon: 'What of My House'

Believe on the LORD Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house — Acts 16:31 This gospel for a man with a sword at his throat is the gospel for me. This would suit me if I were dying, and it is all that I need while I am living. I look away from self, and sin, and all idea of personal merit, and I trust the LORD Jesus as the Savior whom God has given. I believe in Him, I rest on Him, I accept Him to be my all in all. LORD, I am saved, and I shall be saved to all eternity, for I believe in Jesus. Blessed be Thy name for this. May I daily prove by my life that I am saved from selfishness, and worldliness, and every form of evil. But those last words about my "house": LORD, I would not run away with half a promise when Thou dost give a whole one. I beseech Thee, save all my family. Save the nearest and dearest. Convert the children and the grandchildren, if I have any. Be gracious to my servants and all who dwell under my roof or work for me. Thou makest this promise to
