“Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love” (Colossians 1:12-13) “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and […]
“So Moses said to the LORD, ‘Why have You afflicted Your servant?’” (Numbers 11:11) Our heavenly Father sends us frequent troubles to try our faith. If our faith be worth anything, it will stand the test.
Let us stop and consider the merciful nature of God, in having written us a Bible at all. Ah! He might have left us without it, to grope our dark way, as blind men seek the wall. God may be seen in the stars. His name is written in gilt letters on the brow of […]

Helmut Thielicke helpfully points out the impact and influence of Spurgeon’s ministry when he notes that, “The fire Spurgeon […]
The following is adapted from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening devotional, available at Blue Letter Bible. “Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18 “Grow in grace”—not in one grace only, but in all grace.
