Wisdom of the Ages – Charles Spurgeon

What can I do this day to honour the Lord? I will promote His glory by my spoken testimony, and by my practical obedience.

Honouring God

“…for them that honour me I will honour,
and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed”
1 Samuel 2:30

“Do I make the honour of God the great object of my life and the rule of my conduct? If so, He will honour me. I may for awhile receive no honour from man, but God will Himself put honour upon me in the most effectual manner. In the end it will be found the surest way to honour to be willing to be put to shame for conscience sake.

Eli had not honoured the Lord by ruling his household well, and his sons had not honoured the Lord by behaviour worthy of their sacred office, and therefore the Lord did not honour them, but took the high-priesthood out of their family, and made young Samuel to be ruler in the land instead of any of their line. If I would have my family ennobled, I must honour the Lord in all things. God may allow the wicked to win worldly honours; but the dignity which He Himself gives, even glory, honour, and immortality, He reserves for those who by holy obedience take care to honour Him.

What can I do this day to honour the Lord? I will promote His glory by my spoken testimony, and by my practical obedience…”

Oh, to have a church built up with the deep godliness of people who know the Lord in their very hearts …

Wisdom of the Ages

“Alas! Much has been done of late to promote the production of dwarfish Christians. Poor, sickly believers turn the church into a hospital, rather than an army. Oh, to have a church built up with the deep godliness of people who know the Lord in their very hearts, and will seek to follow the Lamb wherever he goes!”
