FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

C.H. SPURGEON

There is a dark flood called death, that will soon wash away all that we have hope for in this world.  It will take away all that in which we have trusted.  It will wash away all that on which we have placed our hope of well-being.  That is when we can rejoice that our heart has been united to the Lord Jesus Christ who will "never leave us, not forsake us."  How sweet it is to be able to trust ourselves to Him who will go with us through death's flood, and safely bring us to the other side, and "make us sit together with Him in heavenly places" forever.  Here is the reason for no more sorrow.  We can shout it from the highest mountain, that we "have a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." 

****************************** 

(Matthew 28:20)  "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."

Mr. Spurgeon said – To have some understanding of holiness, we have to start with sin.  To err in human corruption will lead to wrong views about holiness, and vice versa.  The right view of sin leads to a correct view of salvation.  Without this knowledge, the doctrines of justification, conversion, and sanctification, are words without meaning.  The first thing God does when He brings a person to Christ is show him that he is a guilty sinner.  Wrong views of sin are the foundation of most of the errors, heresies and false doctrines of present day religion.  Not realizing our soul's disease, we will be content with a few ceremonies. 

****************************** 

Mr. Spurgeon continued with – I remember saying in a sermon, one night, "When I get to heaven, I will sing more loudly than anybody else, for I shall owe the most to sovereign grace."  At the close of the service, a good old sister said to me, "You made a mistake in your sermon to-night."  "What was that?" I asked.  "Why, you said that you would sing the loudest in heaven; but, you will not, for I shall, for I shall owe more to grace than you will."  I soon found that all the other Christians there were of the same opinion as that dear old soul, that each one of them would owe more to the grace of God than all the rest; and, surely, that will be the only contention amongst the birds of paradise, which shall sing the most sweetly to the praise of their adorable Lord. 

****************************** 

(Romans 7:24-25)  "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."

CALL TO WORSHIP
John Morison – 1791-1859

Come, let us to the Lord our God

With contrite heart return;

Our God is gracious, nor will leave

The desolate to mourn.

 

His voice commands the tempest forth,

And stills the stormy wave;

And though His arm be strong to smite,

’Tis also strong to save.

 

Long hath the night of sorrow reigned;

The dawn shall bring us light;

God shall appear, and we shall rise

With gladness in His sight.

 

Our heart, if God we seek to know,

Shall know Him, and rejoice;

His coming like the morn shall be,

Like morning songs His voice.

 

As dew upon the tender herb,

Diffusing fragrance round,

As showers that usher in the spring,

And cheer the thirsty ground;

 

So shall His presence bless our souls,

And shed a joyful light;

That hallowed morn shall chase away

The sorrows of the night.

(Tune:  "O For A Thousand Tongues")
