“Hope, Yet No Hope. No Hope, Yet Hope”

“Hope, Yet No Hope. No Hope, Yet Hope”

Charles Spurgeon

Most people are not seeking to escape from theĀ wrath to come, they are busy in worldly thingsĀ while hell is near them. They are like idiotsĀ catching flies on board a ship which is in theĀ very act of sinking!

We see many people busy about their bodies,Ā decorating themselves, when their soul is in ruin.Ā They are like a man painting the front door,Ā when the house is in flames! Men are in a restless pursuit after satisfaction in earthly things.

They will hunt the purlieus of wealth, they will travelĀ the pathways of fame, they will dig into the minesĀ of knowledge, they will exhaust themselves in theĀ deceitful delights of sin, and, finding them all toĀ be vanity and emptiness, they will become veryĀ perplexed and disappointed.

But they will still continue their fruitless search.

Though wearied, they still stagger forward under theĀ influence of spiritual madness, and though there isĀ no result to be reached except that of everlastingĀ disappointment, yet they press forward with much ardor.

Living for today is enough for them– that they areĀ still alive, that they possess present comforts andĀ present enjoyments, this contents the many.

As for the future, they say, “Let it take care of itself.”

As for eternity, they leave others to care for itsĀ realities; the present life is enough for them.

Their motto is, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”

They have no forethought for their eternal state;Ā the present hour absorbs them.

Carnal minds pursue with all their might earth’s vanities,Ā and when they are wearied in their pursuit they but changeĀ their direction, and continue the idle chase.

They turn to another and another of earth’s brokenĀ cisterns, hoping to find water where not a drop wasĀ ever discovered yet.
