Quote of the Day


If damnation and Hell are pleasant to you, then it is no wonder that you go on in sin.

— Richard Baxter

 

Daily Help by Spurgeon


In the evening of the day opportunities are plentiful: men return from their labor, and the zealous soul-winner finds time to tell abroad the love of Jesus. Have I no evening work for Jesus? If I have not, let me no longer withhold my hand from a service which requires abundant labor. Jesus gave both

 

his hands to the nails; how can I keep back one of mine from his blessed work? Night and day he toiled and prayed for me; how can I give a single hour to selfish indulgence? Up, idle heart; stretch out your hand to work, or uplift it to pray: Heaven and Hell are in earnest; let me be so, and this evening sow good seed for the Lord my God.

The Spurgeon Birthday Book

November 29


While sick men take two kinds of medicine, there is little hope of a cure, especially if the two draughts are compounded of opposing ingredients; the bird which lives on two trees builds its nest on neither; and the soul halting between grace and works

 

can never find rest for the sole of its foot. Perhaps, my reader, a secret and well-near imperceptible self-trust is the very thing which shuts out Christ from your soul.

Spurgeon’s Quote


The furnace of affliction is a good place for you, Christian. It benefits you, it helps you to become more like Christ, and it is fitting you for Heaven.
