Beautiful for Ever

Jul 5 I FIND that the text bears other interpretations; I will mention two of them. It might be read, — and I think correctly, — “He will beautify the afflicted with deliverance.” Let me speak about that meaning first of all, for it is worth retaining. God’s own people are frequently made to mourn. Their Lord takes pleasure in them, but yet for their good he often sends them grief. At...

Psalm 149:4

Apart

Jul 16 TRUE repentance is always accompanied by sorrow. It has been said by some of those of modern times who disparage repentance that repentance is “nothing but a change of mind.” These words sound as if there was merely some superficial meaning to them; and so, indeed, they are intended by those who use them, but they are not so intended by the Spirit of God.

Jul 12 NOTE, beloved, the special character of believers, — their divine relationship, their heavenly privilege; they are called “the children of God.” There is a foolish dream about the divine fatherhood toward all men; but it is a figment, a fiction, a delusion, a deception. The fatherhood of God is toward as many as he hath begotten again unto a lively hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead;...

Sermon of the Week: No. 730, "Let Not Your Hearts Be Troubled"

Dec 5 For Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Jesus’ words “Let not your hearts be troubled” were especially sweet. Spurgeon knew that life, especially the Christian life, would be marked by its own crosses and cares. Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon reminds us of Christ’s precious words.
