Apprehended & Apprehending

I am a Christian. I follow Christ with all that I am. I am not perfect or sinless, but I will die focusing on the road ahead of me. forgetting about yesterday and counting all that is behind me as dung. My path is set, my goal is clear!

God’s love-letter

God’s love-letter

Thomas Brooks

8309260161_158f555f35_zThe Scripture is God’s love-letter to men. Here the 
lamb may wade—and here the elephant may swim!

The blessed Scriptures are of infinite worth 
and value! Here you may find …
  a remedy for every disease,
  balm for every wound,
  a plaster for every sore,
  milk for babes,
meat for strong men,
comfort for the afflicted,
support for the tempted,
solace for the distressed,

Stuffed Christians?


Spurgeon   290609281_5fa38d89b8“We are all Christians.”

“Why, we belong to a Christian
nation; are we not born Christians?”

“Surely we must be all right; we have
always attended our parish church, is
not that enough?”

“Our parents were always godly; we were
born into the church, were we not? Did
they not take us up in their arms when
we were little, and make us members of
Christ? What more do we lack?”

A Solemn Sham and an Impudent Mockery!

A Solemn Sham and an Impudent Mockery!

By Charles Spurgeon

“Rend your heart—and not your garments.” Joel 2:13

beautyGarment-rending and other external signs of religious emotion, are easily manifested, and are frequently hypocritical. True repentance is far more difficult, and consequently far less common. Unsaved men will attend to the most multiplied and minute religious ceremonies and regulations—for such things are pleasing to their…

Over-Righteous

Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) “Do not be over-righteous.” Ecclesiastes 7:16 Some of our readers may be surprised to discover that there is such a statement as this in Holy Writ, and at first glance consider it an exhortation we do not need.

Beware of self-righteousness!

J. C. Ryle

“We have all become like one who is unclean, and all
our righteous deeds
 are like a polluted garment.
We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the
wind, take us away.” Isaiah 64:6

Beware of self-righteousness in every possible
shape and form. Some people get as much harm
from their ‘virtues’ as others do from their sins.

Oh, let us beware of self-righteousness! Open sin
kills…

SEPARATION FROM THE WORLD

A convincing evidence of true piety is the spirit of separation from the world. Saints are expectants of glory.

Microscopic Holiness?

2781692552_f380b09e6fI shared those words below, from Spurgeon, because after God told me that I was now holy, I was at a lost as to what next. I guess because I did not have help from mature Christians to understand, nor that I matured in the faith enough to know how to move forward. After the excitement of seeing first hand, God’s Holiness in me, with my spiritual eyes, and after the initial shock that someone like…

Refreshment for the Savior’s Flock Through Bible Verses/Part 7

by: James Smith, 1871    4260412435_5599e8f7de“The Lord preserves all those who love Him.” Psalm 145:20 No one needs keeping more than a Christian. It is His mercy to be kept with the greatest care — the Lord keeps Him as the apple of His eye. Saints are always in His keeping.
And He always keeps them well;
Rising, resting, waking, sleeping.
He preserves from death and Hell.   “You in faithfulness have afflicted…

Refreshment for the Savior’s Flock Through Bible Verses/Part 6

by: James Smith, 1871 4260412435_5599e8f7de“Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only — deceiving your own selves!” James 1:22 The Lord requires not only faith in His promises — but obedience to His commands! Practical religion is the only true religion. In vain, religion we profess,
While we reject the Lord’s command.
Strangers to God and happiness,
We build our house upon the sand.   “He does not forget the cry…

Faith Is Easy

Galatians 3:22

“…so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.”

8309260161_158f555f35_zIf faith is the gaze of the heart at God, and if this gaze is but the raising of the inward eyes to meet the all-seeing eyes of God, it follows that it is one of the easiest things possible to do. It would be like God to make the most vital thing easy and place it within the range of possibility…
