Quote of the Day


The sympathy of Jesus is the next most precious thing to His sin-atoning sacrifice!

— Charles Spurgeon

 

Daily Help by Spurgeon


There was never a soul yet that sincerely sought the Savior, who perished before he found him. No; the gates of death shall never shut on you until the gates of grace have opened for you; until Christ has washed your sins away you shall never be baptized in Jordan's flood. Your life is secure, for this

 

is God's constant plan—he keeps his own elect alive until the day of his grace, and then he takes them to himself. And inasmuch as you know your need of a Savior, you are one of his, and you shall never die until you have found him. God sends the right messenger to the right man.

The Spurgeon Birthday Book

May 13


The eclipse of your faith, the darkness of your mind, the fainting of your hope, all these things are but part of God's method of making you ripe for Heaven. There are "precious things put forth by the moon" needing night to perfect them; and perhaps

 

some parts of your character are such fruits. Bear the gloom and damp patiently, for you will soon reach the land of which it is written, "There shall be no night there."
