CHARLES SPURGEON'S MORNING AND EVENING

CHARLES SPURGEON'S MORNING AND EVENING
September 20
Morning...
 
Judges 7:20
The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.
 
Gideon ordered his men to do two things: covering up a torch in an earthen pitcher, he bade them, at an appointed signal, break the pitcher and let the light shine, and then sound with the trumpet, crying, "The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon! the sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" This is precisely what all Christians must do. First, you must shine; break the pitcher which conceals your light; throw aside the bushel which has been hiding your candle, and shine. Let your light shine before men; let your good works be such, that when men look upon you, they shall know that you have been with Jesus. Then there must be the sound, the blowing of the trumpet. There must be active exertions for the ingathering of sinners by proclaiming Christ crucified. 

Take the gospel to them; carry it to their door; put it in their way; do not suffer them to escape it; blow the trumpet right against their ears. Remember that the true war-cry of the Church is Gideon's watchword, "The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" God must do it, it is His own work. But we are not to be idle; instrumentality is to be used-"The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" If we only cry, "The sword of the Lord!" we shall be guilty of an idle presumption; and if we shout, "The sword of Gideon!" alone, we shall manifest idolatrous reliance on an arm of flesh: we must blend the two in practical harmony, "The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!" 

We can do nothing of ourselves, but we can do everything by the help of our God; let us, therefore, in His name determine to go out personally and serve with our flaming torch of holy example, and with our trumpet tones of earnest declaration and testimony, and God shall be with us, and Midian shall be put to confusion, and the Lord of hosts shall reign for ever and ever.

Our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem,…

Good Morning This Is God!

DIFFERENT WAYS OF READING THE BIBLE


DIFFERENT WAYS OF READING THE BIBLE
It is one thing to read the Bible through.
Another thing to read to learn and do.
Some read it with design to learn to read.
But to the subject pay but little heed.
Some read it as their duty once a week,
But no instructions from the Bible seek;
While others read it with but little care,
With no regard to how they read nor where.
Some read to bring themselves into repute,
By showing others how they can dispute;
While others read because their neighbors do;
To see how long 'twill take to read it through.
Some read it for the wonders that are there,
How David killed a lion and a bear;
While others read it with uncommon care,
Hoping to find some contradiction there.
Some read as if it did not speak to them,
But to the people of Jerusalem.
One read with father's specs upon his head,
And sees the things just as his father said.
Some read to prove a pre-adopted creed,
Hence understand but little that they read;
For every passage in the book they bend
To make it suit that all- important end.
Some people read, as I have often thought,
To teach the book instead of being taught;
And some there are who read it out of spite.
I fear there are but few who read it right.

CHARLES SPURGEON'S MORNINGS AND EVENING!



CHARLES SPURGEON'S MORNINGS AND EVENING!

September 19
 
Evening...
 
1 Samuel 1:27
For this child I prayed.
 
Devout souls delight to look upon those mercies which they have obtained in answer to supplication, for they can see God's especial love in them. When we can name our blessings Samuel, that is, "asked of God," they will be as dear to us as her child was to Hannah. Peninnah had many children, but they came as common blessings unsought in prayer: Hannah's one heaven-given child was dearer far, because he was the fruit of earnest pleadings. How sweet was that water to Samson which he found at "the well of him that prayed!" Quassia cups turn all waters bitter, but the cup of prayer puts a sweetness into the draughts it brings. 

Did we pray for the conversion of our children? How doubly sweet, when they are saved, to see in them our own petitions fulfilled! Better to rejoice over them as the fruit of our pleadings than as the fruit of our bodies. Have we sought of the Lord some choice spiritual gift? When it comes to us it will be wrapped up in the gold cloth of God's faithfulness and truth, and so be doubly precious. Have we petitioned for success in the Lord's work? How joyful is the prosperity which comes flying upon the wings of prayer! It is always best to get blessings into our house in the legitimate way, by the door of prayer; then they are blessings indeed, and not temptations. 

Even when prayer speeds not, the blessings grow all the richer for the delay; the child Jesus was all the more lovely in the eyes of Mary when she found Him after having sought Him sorrowing. That which we win by prayer we should dedicate to God, as Hannah dedicated Samuel. The gift came from heaven, let it go to heaven. Prayer brought it, gratitude sang over it, let devotion consecrate it. Here will be a special occasion for saying, "Of Thine own have I given unto Thee." Reader, is prayer your element or your weariness? Which?

Fight the Good Fight 1 Timothy 6:14-16




Fight the Good Fight
1 Timothy 6:14-16
…14 Keep this commandment without stain or reproach until the appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
15 which God will bring about in His own time — He who is blessed and the only Sovereign One, the King of kings and Lord of lords. 
16 He alone is immortal and dwells in unapproachable light. No one has ever seen Him, nor can anyone see Him. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.…

Walking With Grandpa

Submitted By: Adriann
I like to walk with Grandpa, his steps are short like mine. He doesn’t say, “Now hurry up.” He always takes his time. I like to walk with Grandpa, his eyes see things like mine; a birdie bright, a funny cloud, a penny that really shines. Most people are in a hurry, they do not stop and see; I’m glad that God made Grandpa unrushed, and almost as young as me.

Today's Bible Verse: Matthew 14:32-33


Today's Bible Verse:
Matthew 14:32-33
And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God." (ESV)
* Today's Inspiring Thought: Jesus in Your Boat
In this verse, Peter has just walked on stormy waters with Jesus. While taking his eyes off the Lord and focusing on the storm, he began to sink under the weight of his troubling circumstances. But when he cried out for help, Jesus caught him by the hand and raised him up out of his seemingly impossible surroundings.
Though we may not walk across water like Peter, we will go through difficult, faith-testing circumstances. In the end, as Jesus and Peter climbed into the boat, the storm immediately ceases. When we have Jesus "in our boat" the storms of life are calmed so that we can worship him.
