Wisdom of the Ages

Spurgeon

Charles Spurgeon’s last words

“We would have it so happen that, when our life’s history is written, whoever reads it will not think of us as “self-made men,” but as the handiwork of God, in whom his grace is magnified. Not in us may men see the clay, but the Potter’s hand. They said of one, “He is a fine preacher;” but of another they said, “We never notice how he preaches, but we feel that God is great.” We wish our whole life to be a sacrifice; an altar of incense continually smoking with sweet perfume unto the Most High. Oh, to be borne through the year on the wings of praise to God to mount from year to year, and raise at each ascent a loftier and yet lowlier song unto the God of our Life! The vista of a praiseful life will never close, but continue throughout eternity. From psalm to psalm, from hallelujah to hallelujah, we will ascend the hill of the Lord; until we come into the Holiest of all, where, with veiled faces, we will bow before the Divine Majesty in the bliss of endless adoration.”

Charles Spurgeon

“If it were not for hopes, the heart would break”
– Thomas Fuller

Hope gives the ability to stand in the darkness for Hope looks for the morning not the night. People without hope are a people without strength. Jesus came to be everyone’s hope and everyone’s light.

“Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”
Matthew 11:28

Wisdom of the Ages

Andrew Murray

“Nowhere can we get to know the holiness of God, and come under His influence and power, except in the inner chamber. It has been well said: “No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God.””
– Andrew Murray
