“A Few Thoughts on the Rainbow”

You’d have to living totally off the grid not to have noticed all of the rainbows lately…even the White House was recently lit up in rainbow colors. I’ll refrain from commenting on that, but I do want to share something about the rainbow from the end of a Tim Keller sermon I heard a couple […]

Serving from Beauty.

In the sermon I quoted from yesterday, Tim Keller shared the following story from Charles Spurgeon. “Once upon a time there was a king who ruled over everything in a land. One day there was a gardener who grew an enormous carrot. He took it to his king and said, “My lord, this is the […]

A Sacrifice of Praise

“Every creature is happiest when it is doing what it is made for. A bird that is made to fly abroad pines in a cage. An eagle would die in the water, even as a fish that is made to swim perishes on the river’s bank. Christians are made to glorify God. We are never […]

“It is Finished!”

Last night we looked at three words uttered by Jesus from the Cross, “It is Finished.”  Surgeon said this about those words,—“It is altogether immeasurable. It is high; I cannot attain to it. It is deep; I cannot fathom it.”  One of the questions we sought to answer was this–when Jesus said “It” is finished, what […]

Our Burning Zeal

“The master passion of every Christian is to be useful. There should be a burning zeal within us for the glory of God. When the man who desires to be useful has laid his plans and set about his work, he begins to look out for the results; but perhaps it will be weeks, or […]

The Godhead’s Deepest Sea

In 1855, Charles Spurgeon, who was almost 21 at the time, said,  “Would you lose your sorrows? Would you drown your cares? Then go, plunge yourself in the Godhead’s deepest sea; be lost in His immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest, refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can […]

The God Man

Last night I share the following quote from Charles Spurgeon. “I entertain no doubt about his Deity, and, moreover, on that I risk my soul; I do take him into my heart as being God over all, blessed for ever, Amen; I kiss his feet while I see his humanity; but I believe that, since […]

And we think we are busy!

Do you ever think you are just too busy to do what God has called you to do?  Yesterday I clicked on Don Whitney’s blog and found this incredible reminder.  To be honest it was like an ax cutting away all of my sorry excuses and I hope it does the same to you.  We […]

Longing for the Slime of the Serpent to be Washed Away!

Spurgeon once said, “The Earth in ruins reveals a magnificence which shows the signs of a royal founder and an extraordinary purpose.  Creation glows with a thousand beauties even in its present fallen condition, yet clearly enough it is not as when it came from the Maker’s hand—the slime of the serpent is on it […]

A Waterfall of Souls

Yesterday I was reading a sermon by Spurgeon on Habakkuk 3:2.  In the midst of his sermon he shared a vision.  His picture of man’s life on the broad road which leads to destruction is startling.  As we go about this day…this Reformation Day where most will go from house to house seeking candy unaware […]
