Christianity speaks to the whole man, in all his capacities, in every sphere of life, in all his roles and functions in this world. Henry Augustus Boardman (1808-1880) emphasized that point with three works targeted at how the claims of Christ must not be dismissed, but rather recognized and acted upon, by men in their professional lives, whether they be doctors, lawyers or merchants. Take time, even if your profession is something other than the three listed, to download and look over these works to better understand how to apply that principle of which the Apostle speaks, that "whatever ye do, do all to the glory of God" (I Cor. 10:31; Col. 3:17).
Henry Augustus Boardman (1808-1880) was born on January 9, 1808 (210 years ago today), in Troy, New York. A most prolific writer, and an ecclesiastical leader of the Northern Presbyterian Church with Southern connections, he would go on to serve 43 years in the pastorate of the Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. It was his custom to preach New Year's sermons for the edification of his flock, a volume of which was published under the title Mottoes For the New Year as Given in Texts of Sermons (1882). On the occasion of his birthday, and while we are still in early January, we commend these sermons to your edification as well.
