About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Great Advice on Going to Friends for Advice.

      Saturday, June 16, 2007

      "For he shall deliver the needy when he
      crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no
      helper
      ." - Ps. Ixxii. 12.


      The needy cries; what else can he do?
      His cry is heard of God; what else need
      he do? Let the needy reader take to
      crying at once, for this will be his wisdom.
      Do not cry in the ears of friends, for even if
      they can help you it is only because the Lord
      enables them.
      The nearest way is to go
      straight to God, and let your cry come up be
      fore him. Straight-forward makes the best
      runner : run to the Lord, and not to secondary
      causes.


      "Alas !" you cry, "I have no friend or
      helper." So much the better; you can rely
      upon God in both capacities as without sup-
      plies and without helpers. Make your double
      need your double plea. Even for temporal
      mercies you may wait upon God, for he careth
      for his children in these temporary concerns.
      As for spiritual necessities, which are the
      heaviest of all, the Lord will hear your cry,
      and will deliver you and supply you.

      O poor friend, try your rich God. O helpless
      one, lean on his help. He has never failed
      me, and I am sure he will never fail you.
      Come as a beggar, and God will not refuse you
      help. Come with no plea but his grace.
      Jesus is King, will he let you perish of want?
      What! Did you forget this?


      - C. H. Spurgeon
      ( from the book The Cheque Book of the Bank of Faith )
