May God Bring Us to This

This man had a way with words…

“Oh Sirs, it seems to me that since the foundation of God was laid in agony and bloody sweat, and since God himself became incarnate that he might lay the foundation of holiness in the world, we ought to take heed how and what we build thereon… True godliness is not to say, “I believe,” but to believe; not to talk of repentance, but to repent; it is not to speak of regeneration, but to be born again; it is not to talk about consecration, but really to live to God; it is not to speak about the Holy Ghost, but to have him dwelling in you. Be it ours to have truth in the inward parts and grace in the core of the heart. Oh, may God bring us to this!” —C.H. Spurgeon

What a way to start your day.

  1. Interestingly, the man “who had a way with words” said it’s not about the speaking but about the doing. Why do I talk so much and do so little? Why is there so much church activity and so little disciple making? Why is there so much knowledge about God and so little knowing Him?
    Thanks for your good words Jay. You always spur
