What does the cause of Christ most need from you and me if it is to prosper? Today’s devotional gives the answer. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Joshua 1:9 (ESV)Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
“Oh, it was a grand thing when Luther stepped out from the ranks of Rome. There were many good men round him, who said, ‘Be quiet, Martin. You will get burnt if you do not hold your tongue. Let us keep where we are, in the Church of Rome, even if we have to swallow down great lumps of dirt. We can believe the gospel, and still remain where we are.’ But Luther knew that he must defy Anti-Christ, and declare the pure gospel of the blessed God; and he must stand alone for the truth, even if there were as many devils against him as there were tiles on the housetops at Worms. That is the kind of man whom God blesses.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXVIII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1892), p. 548]
