His name shall be called Wonderful. – C.H. SPURGEON

He is wonderful for WHAT HE IS IN THE PRESENT. And here I will not diverge, but will just appeal to you personally. Is he wonderful to you? Let me tell the story of my own wonderment at Christ, and in telling it, I shall be telling the experience of all God’s children. There was a time when I wondered not at Christ.

FACING SIN – Psalm 32

How often do we feel this pressure building inside of us, but we’re afraid to confront the sin that’s causing it? We keep on denying it to God, others, and even ourselves. Maybe you don’t want to acknowledge your sin to God because you feel you’ve messed up one too many times.

BEATITUDES-MATT 5:5 – BLESSED ARE THE MEEK

We all need to search our souls when we hear these virtues set forth by Christ; none of us is as meek as we ought to be. Sometimes we confuse being meek with being weak. Sometimes we do not say anything when we should, and we excuse our cowardice by attributing it to humility or meekness. Moses was not a coward, and certainly, Jesus was no coward.

THE COST OF FOLLOWING JESUS – Bearing the Cross

What does it mean to bear our cross and follow Jesus? It means we have to die. We must die to ourselves and live to Christ. We must lose our own life and walk forward in His. We must turn from going our own way and go the way He wants us to go instead. If we are truly believers, this is something that should work itself out more and more in our lives over time.

BEHOLD THE MAN – PART 3

When we are dealing with such an in-depth topic of the human condition, I believe that the subject matter itself outweighs a simple approach to this subject. We must be careful that what is being said supports the topic clearly. There is no easy approach to looking at what makes us human.
