Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Are Ye So Foolish?

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? - Galatians 3:3

"Yes, in response to the question in our text, we are this foolish. Folly is bound up not only in the heart of a child, but even in the heart of a child of God; and though the rod may be said to bring folly out of a child (Prov.22:15), it will take many repetitions of the rod of affliction upon the shoulders of a Christian before that folly is taken out of him."

- C.H. Spurgeon, Spurgeon on the Holy Spirit, pg. 9
