Tears Of Repentance

Tears Of Repentance

(Charles Spurgeon)

“As she stood behind Him at His feet weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them!” Luke 7:38

O that our eyes were as ready with tears of repentance as were hers! O that our hearts were as full of love as hers and our hands as ready to serve the forgiving Lord!

If she has exceeded some of us in the heinousness of her sin–yet she has exceeded all of us in the fervency of her affection!

Perfect Peace

Perfect peace

(Charles Spurgeon, “Gleanings among the Sheaves”)

“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

Unless the heart is kept quiet and peaceable‚ÄĒthe life will not be happy. If calm does not reign over that inner lake within the soul which feeds the rivers of our life‚ÄĒthe rivers themselves will always be in storm. Our outward acts will always manifest that they were born in tempests‚ÄĒby being tempestuous themselves.

We all desire to lead a peaceful and joyous life; the bright eye and the elastic foot are things which each of us desire; to carry about a contented mind is that to which most people are continually aspiring. Let us remember that the only way to keep our life peaceful and happy‚ÄĒis to keep the heart at rest‚ÄĒfor come poverty, come wealth, come honor, come shame, come plenty, or come scarcity‚ÄĒif the heart is quiet, there will be peace and happiness manifested in the life!

But no matter how bright the sun shines outside‚ÄĒif the heart is troubled‚ÄĒthe whole life must be troubled too!

“You will keep in perfect peace‚ÄĒall whose thoughts are fixed on You‚ÄĒbecause he trusts in You!” Isaiah 26:3

“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 the wrath to come, they are busy in worldly things while hell is near them. They are like idiots catching flies on board a ship which is in the very act of sinking!

We see many people busy about their bodies, decorating themselves, when their soul is in ruin. They are like a man painting the front door, 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 travel the pathways of fame, they will dig into the mines of knowledge, they will exhaust themselves in the deceitful delights of sin, and, finding them all to be vanity and emptiness, they will become very perplexed and disappointed.

But they will still continue their fruitless search.

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

Living for today is enough for themРthat they are still alive, that they possess present comforts and 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 its 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; the present hour absorbs them.

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

They turn to another and another of earth’s broken¬†cisterns, hoping to find water where not a drop was¬†ever discovered yet.

What Dignity!

What Dignity!

Spurgeon, “The Sons of God

Consider, I beg you, what a dignity God has conferred upon you by making you his son.

The tall archangel before the throne is not called God’s son–he is one of the most favored of his servants, but not God‚Äôs¬†child.

I tell you, you ‘impoverished’ brother in Christ, there¬†is a dignity about you that even angels may well envy. You in your poverty are as a sparkling jewel¬†in the darkness of the mine.

You in the midst of your ‘sickness and infirmity’ are girt about¬†with robes of glory, which make the spirits in heaven look¬†down upon the earth with awe.

You move about this world as a prince among the crowd!

The blood of heaven runs in your veins!¬†You are one of the blood royal of eternity–a son of God, descendant of the King of kings!

The “illuminated” Bible?

The “illuminated” Bible?

You may read the Bible continuously and yet never learn anything by it, unless it is illuminated by the Spirit.

Then the words shine forth like stars. Then the book seems made of gold leaf; every single letter glitters like a diamond.

Oh! it is a blessed thing to read an “illuminated Bible”lit up by the radiance of the Holy Spirit.

Have you read the Bible, and yet have your eyes been¬†unenlightened? Go and say, “O Lord, illuminate it; shine upon¬†it; for I cannot read it to profit, unless You enlighten me.”

Blind men may read the Bible with their fingers, but blind souls cannot.

We need a light to read the Bible by; there is no reading it in the dark.

Their Ability To Make False Doctrine Palatable

Please click the metal quote logo so view many more quotes on iChristian

‚ÄúI have not much patience with a certain class of Christians nowadays who will hear anybody preach so long as they can say, ‘He is very clever, a fine preacher, a man of genius, a born orator.’ Is cleverness to make false doctrine palatable? Why, sirs, to me the ability of a man who preaches error is my sorrow rather than my admiration.‚Ä̬†
