|Having a Spiritual Congregation | Charles E. Orr||Church|
To make this still plainer and more comprehensive, a preacher is to be so filled with Christ and have the Spirit of discernment that he will never let a soul up from the altar until he knows that soul has been forgiven of God.

|Having the Mind of Christ | James R. Miller, 1903||Consecration|
We say we want to be like Christ.... But what do we mean by being like Christ? Are we not in danger of getting into our vision of it, merely an easy kind of life, a gentle piety, a dainty charity, a fashionable holiness, a pleasing service?

|Hear God’s Voice and Follow Him | Fred Pruitt, 2012||Discernment|
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us keep in our hearts a love for the truth and the crucified way, lest we be led astray by any of the deceivers around us.... Those who get grounded and settled in the truth will not be blown about by different winds of doctrine.

|Heavenly Life for Earthly Living | Charles E. Orr||Holiness|
There are spiritual elevations from which it is our privilege to have a vision of heavenly things.... Man will not live any higher than his vision of life. The more we see of heavenly things, the more heavenly we can live. Oh, let us live in a heavenly place!

|Heavenly Wisdom in Saving Souls | Daniel S. Warner, 1887||Wisdom|
The best convincer that we are "the seed which the Lord hath blessed," is the actual fruit of salvation, the real deliverance of men from the power of sin, and the manifestation of the virtues of a holy life. Aim directly at getting men and women saved.

|He Can | Anonymous/Unknown||Trust|
It is human to look and crave for something in sight that will help the Lord out. In time of need, if we can only find a little of something for God to begin on, we seem to be much better satisfied.

|Helps to Holy Living | Charles E. Orr||Holiness|
Who among us has an eye to see all that belongs to the Christian life? Are there not yet some glorious things lying out beyond the boundary of our vision? Oh, for the open eye to see the wondrous things God has prepared for them that love Him!

|Hero of Hill House | Mabel Hale, 1922||Story|
Austin's brow clouded as he heard Doyle's wish.... It did not seem fair, after the sacrifice he had made all these years... that the boy should care more for his father and this unknown mother than he did for his home and the one who had made it possible.

|Highways and Hedges | Grace G. Henry, 1958||Biography|
There appeared... letters in blazing light, as plain as the handwriting on the wall in the house of Nebuchadnezzar. They appeared just above the group of little faces. The message slowly spelled out, "India's helpless little ones are calling you."

|Himself | Albert B. Simpson, 1891||Jesus/Savior|
That is the way to look at the Scriptures and understand the thoughts of God—to see in them the face of Love, shining through and through. Not ideas, nor doctrines, but Jesus Himself as the Life and Source and sustaining Presence of all our life.

|Holy Spirit Baptism and The Second Cleansing | Russell R. Byrum, 1923||Holy Spirit|
Only those who have received the blessed Holy Spirit of God into their hearts, the abiding Comforter, can know the sweetness of closest communion with God and the greatest measure of the joy of His presence.

|Holy Spirit Obedience | Tyler A. Schones, 2012||Holy Spirit|
The burden of this message is to express the... necessity of the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring about this type of obedience that Jesus came to produce in us, and a solemn warning against any attempt of the flesh to fulfill this calling.

|Homeless at Christmas |
My nervous mind immediately thought of our car. Had I locked the door?... It's not that I begrudge homeless people of a warm house or good food, but I suspect that they choose their lifestyle and somehow want to be unclean.

|How I Found the Church of God | Mark P. Spinks, 2008||Church|
I prayed earnestly that God would direct me where I should live and labor next. I was plainly directed to a certain congregation, and it was in that place that I first plainly and clearly saw the church of God functioning as it should.

|How I Learned to Pray for the Lost | Anonymous/Unknown||Prayer|
We may say that each one is actually God's purchased possession, although still held by the enemy. We must through the prayer of faith, claim and take for God, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that which is rightfully His.

|How John Became a Man | Isabel C. Byrum, 1909||Biography|
He had not meant to be wicked, but he suddenly realized that his life had been wasted; and he concluded that he was not ready to meet Christ. But John believed that Christ would come to the earth, and he felt that he would give anything to be ready to meet Him.

|How to Die to Self | George D. Watson, 1898||Crucifixion|
There are many manifestations of the self life which are not clearly sinful, but neither are they truly Christlike. ...this middle zone of self activity... must be... crucified in order to reach deep abiding union with God, where there is none of self and all of Christ Jesus.

|How to Find the Christian Life | Charles E. Orr, 2013||Salvation|
Our getting to heaven depends upon the life we live here. If I owned the whole world I would rather lose it all than to miss heaven. But, except we live the true Christian life, this beautiful happy, eternal heaven will never be ours.

|How to Live a Holy Life | Charles E. Orr, 1912||Holiness|
The soul intertwined with the meek and lowly life of Jesus will form a character of deep piety and sincere godliness. The daily life should be intertwined with the life of Jesus. Let there be no reaching out for anything outside of Him.

|How to Resist the Devil | F. J. Perryman, 2012||Warfare|
God can do no more than He has done. At the cross He judged the devil and overthrew him and his hosts.... Not only are we saved from sin on account of that death, but we are also saved from Satan.

|How Two Little Boys Stopped Fighting | Mark P. Spinks, 1999||Salvation|
My brother arrived, and I faltered between being fascinated and being enraged. At one point, disgusted by the lack of ability to "play"... and irritated by his crying, I earnestly and sincerely suggested to my parents, "Let's take that baby and throw him in the river!"
