FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

c.h. spurgeon

I went to bury one of the holiest men I ever knew, and, I may add, the happiest man I ever saw in all my life. He fell asleep at a good old age, but as I stood by his bedside often in his last illness I envied him. Covered from head to foot, as he said, with the boils of Job, and the sores of Lazarus in one, with all his bones aching as though they were out of joint, yet he said to me, "What a happy thing it is to be here"; and I said, "What a happy thing to be upon a dying bed!" "Yes," said he, "for I am with God, and God is with me, and Christ is mine, and I am his, and it is the happiest day I ever lived." He had often said that in his lifetime, for I never knew him otherwise than rejoicing in his God; but I was glad to hear him, when his eyes were almost glazed with death, say, "It is the happiest day I ever lived."

If one of our grandfathers were to rise from the dead, and come into the present state of things, what a deal of trusting he would have to do. He would say to-morrow morning, "Where are the flint and steel? I want a light;" and we should give him a little box with tiny pieces of wood in it, and tell him to strike one of them on the box. He would have to trust a good deal before he would believe that fire would thus, be produced. We should next say to him, "Now, that you have a light, turn that tap and light the gas." He sees nothing but is annoyed with an offensive smell. How can he believe that light will come of that invisible vapor? And yet it does. "Now come with us, grandfather. Sit in that chair. Look at that box in front of you. You shall have your likeness directly." "No, child," he would say "it is ridiculous. The sun take my portrait? I cannot believe it." "Yes, and you shall ride fifty miles in an hour without horses." "I do not believe it," says he. "What is more, you shall speak to your son in New York, and he shall answer you in a few minutes." Should we not astonish the old gentleman? Would he not want all his faith? And yet these things are believed by us without effort, because experience has made us familiar with them.

Faith is greatly needed by you who are strangers to spiritual things; you seem lost while we are talking about them, and our very words puzzle you. But oh, how simple it is to us who have the new life and have communion with spiritual realities. We have a Father to whom we speak and he hears us, and a blessed Saviour who hears our heart's longings, mind helps us in our struggles against sin. It is all plain to him that understandeth. May the Spirit of God bring every one of you to understand it!
C.H. Spurgeon

CALL TO WORSHIP
John Kent 1827

Sovereign grace o'er sin abounding!

Ransomed souls, the tidings swell;

'Tis a deep that knows no sounding;

Who its breadth or length can tell?

 

Heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus!

Long ere time its race begun;

To His name eternal praises;

O what wonders love hath done!

 

Who from Christ our souls can sever,

Bound by everlasting bands;

Once in Him, in Him forever;

None can pluck us from His hands.

 

O such love, my soul, still ponder,

Love so great, so rich, so free;

Say, while lost in holy wonder,

"Why, O Lord, such love to me?" 

(Tune: "Jesus Call Us") 

****************************** 

(Romans 5:18-21)  "Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.  For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord."
