A Gem from Spurgeon

From today’s “Morning and Evening, Spurgeon comments on Joel’s directive to “rend your hearts, and not your garments…”

HEART-RENDING is divinely wrought and solemnly felt. It is a secret grief which is personally experienced, not in mere form, but as a deep, soul-moving work of the Holy Spirit upon the inmost heart of each believer. It is not a matter to be merely talked of and believed in, but keenly and sensitively felt in every living child of the living God. It is powerfully humiliating, and completely sin-purging; but then it is sweetly preparative for those gracious consolations which proud unhumbled spirits are unable to receive; and it is distinctly discriminating, for it belongs to the elect of God, and to them alone.

Spurgeon, C. H. (2006). Morning and evening : Daily readings (Complete and unabridged; New modern edition.). Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers.

This performance at Macy’s in Philadelphia has to make you just a bit more joyful, and that’s good, since tomorrow’s Advent theme is JOY!

Pray for Dr. Ebersole

Dr. Russ Ebersole, Jr.

Dr. Russ Ebersole, Jr.

Many of you may know Dr Russ Ebersole, Jr., who serves in Togo with ABWE at their hospital there.  I just received word that he has had to be evacuated from the country due to a serious medical condition, but have no further word on the disease or his condition.  I do want to encourage all of us to be praying for him.  The work that is being done for the advance of the gospel through this hospital is hard to overstate, and Dr. Ebersole’s contribution is very significant.  Pray for him, for his family, and for the work of God there.
