Thankful for the Resurrection

By Charles H. Spurgeon / London’s Prince of Preachers / Edited by Ron English for Thanksgiving Day

The doctrine of a risen Saviour is exceedingly precious. The resurrection is the corner-stone of the entire building of

Charles H Spurgeon

Christianity. It is the key-stone of the arch of our salvation. It would take a volume to set forth all the streams of living water which flow from this one sacred source, the resurrection of our dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; but to know that He has risen, and to have fellowship with Him as such—communing with the risen Savior by possessing a risen life—seeing Him leave the tomb by leaving the tomb of worldliness ourselves, this is even still more precious.

The doctrine is the basis of the experience, but as the flower is more lovely than the root, so is the experience of fellowship with the risen Savior more lovely than the doctrine itself. I would have you believe that Christ rose from the dead so as to sing of it, and derive all the consolation which it is possible for you to extract from this well-ascertained and well-witnessed fact; but I beseech you, rest not contented even there.

Though you cannot, like the disciples, see Him visibly, yet I bid you aspire to see Christ Jesus by the eye of faith; and though, like Mary Magdalene, you may not “touch” Him, yet may you be privileged to converse with Him, and to know that He is risen, you yourselves being risen in Him to newness of life. To know a crucified Savior as having crucified all my sins, is a high degree of knowledge; but to know a risen Savior as having justified me, and to realize that He has bestowed upon me new life, having given me to be a new creature through His own newness of life, this is a noble style of experience: short of it, none ought to rest satisfied. May you both “know Him, and the power of His resurrection.”

Why should souls who are quickened with Jesus, wear the grave-clothes of worldliness and unbelief? Rise, for the Lord is risen.

Love is a four-letter Word

Too many four-letter words spewing from our TVs, street talk and movies.  Homes are contaminated with fowl language, children use crude talk and text vile stuff to their friends.  So here is a brief video by Evangelist Mike Stevens that gives you a refreshing drink of Love, a different kind of four-letter word. Drink it up…better for you than a 5-Hour Energy drink and will impact your inner self like nothing else.  Dr. Stevens has several of these videos on YouTube.  Go there and enter his name, Dr. Mike Stevens.   Click the Blue YouTube link below for your spiritual energy drink,  LOVE.  Visit Dr. Mike’s website, www.drmikestevens.com

Our Wonderful Christ

By the late Dr. Jack MacArthur, Voice of Calvary

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”   — Isaiah 9:6

Dr. Jack MacArthur

Nearly 2,000 years ago a Jewish maiden went down into the mysterious land of motherhood and came back with a child. And it has well been said, to this child was given a name that blossoms on the pages of history like the flowers of a thousand spring times in the confines of a single garden. It is a name that echoes and re-echoes down the corridors of time like the music of a thousand choruses, visible and invisible, rising in crescendo, a glorious anthem. A name that adorns the record of the centuries like the splendor of a thousand monuments, built of the purest of precious stones. A name that is grander and greater and more glorious and more meaningful than all the other names of the world. And when this child became a man, behold what manner of man He was!

He had none of the usual advantages. His parents were poor. He never recruited an army. He never conquered a kingdom. He never owned any real estate. He never wrote a book. He never founded an institution of higher learning. He never painted a picture. He never composed any music. He was mocked and scorned by the great, and died the death of a common criminal. And yet, this peerless person has literally revolutionized the civilized world, and whatever semblance of civilization there is left in this thermonuclear bomb-threatened world in the midst of its night of darkness, unbelief and sin, is solely and only because of Him and because of His presence.

Heavenly Places

Shake Off Fear—Embrace Blessing!

Adrian Rogers

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” – Ephesians 1:3

Did you know that fear can cause you to forget things? Now, I’m not talking about forgetting a phone number or someone’s name, though it may cause you to forget things like that. Instead, I’m referring to fear that causes you to forget the blessings, the anointing, the power of God—all these possessions you have because you are saved!

It happened to Timothy, who was mightily gifted and graced by God for the ministry that God had given him.  Yet he forgot this in the midst of fear, and Paul had to remind him (see 2 Timothy 1:6). He had taken his eyes off of God and focused on fear so much that he couldn’t see anything else.

Let me tell you something, friend: You are tremendously blessed! If you get your mind distracted by fear, then you will fail to see your blessings in Christ. Fear will blow out every light in your soul, take the blue out of your sky, and the joy out of your life.

Friend, wake up and count your blessings. Rejoice, for you are in Christ!
