by Charles Spurgeon
For your gift to the Christian Research Institute, receive the Morning by Morning devotional by Charles Spurgeon.
Charles Spurgeon was a staunch defender of God’s Word. He was on the forefront of the battle when Darwinian evolution and other new scientific theories undermined the faith of millions. He refused to give way in the face of ridicule and vicious attacks, but always spoke with gentleness and humility. He kept his eyes fixed on what was truly important — winning souls to Christ and helping them live out their faith to the fullest.
Spurgeon’s ministry was also attended by severe physical pain. But this, too, he counted as gain for Christ’s sake. In a sermon published in 1881, he wrote, “Were you ever in the melting-pot, dear friends? I have been there...the result of melting is that we arrive at a true valuation of things [and] we are poured out in a new and better fashion. And, oh, we may almost wish for the melting-pot if we may but get rid of the dross, if we may but be pure!”
Spurgeon spent his life in matters of eternal significance, and he continues to draw people closer to Christ today through his writings. The devotions in Morning by Morning are packed with timeless spiritual insights and an abiding love for God’s Word. Each one takes only minutes to read, but they’ll stay with you forever and are truly uplifting. It’s a great way to start off 2013 with a renewed commitment to a daily quiet time with God.
In his devotion for January 2, Spurgeon writes: “Pray that this year you will be holy, humble, devoted, and diligent; that you will have closer communion with Christ, often entering the banquet room of His love. Pray that you will be an example and a blessing to others, and that you will live more and more for the glory of your Master.” A prayer we all can pray every day! And Morning by Morning will help you reach that closer communion with Christ, and live more and more for the glory of your Master.Please partner with the Christian Research Institute today with a gift of eternal significance, and request your copy of Morning by Morning as our thank you.
