FOOD FOR THOUGHT

THANK GOD FOR THE SIMPLICITY OF THE GOSPEL!

 “The longer I live the more I bless God that we have not received a classical gospel, nor a mathematical gospel, nor a metaphysical gospel. It is not a gospel confined to scholars and men of genius, but a poor man’s gospel, a ploughman’s gospel; for that is the kind of gospel which we can live upon and die upon. It is to us not a luxury of refinement, but the staple food of life. We want no fine words when the heart is heavy, neither do we need problems when we are lying upon the verge of eternity, weak in body and tempted in mind. At such times we magnify the simplicity of the gospel. Jesus in the flesh, made manifest, becomes our soul’s bread. Jesus bleeding on the cross, a substitute for sinners, is our soul’s drink. This is the gospel for babes, and strong men want no more.

                                                                                C. H. Spurgeon



“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers    temptations.  Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.”       (James 1:2 – 3)

“Three reasons are given why we should regard our trials as blessings.

1.     We are providentially brought under these trials by the hand of our heavenly Father, who will work all things (difficult as they may seem) together for our good (Rom. 8:28; Heb. 12:5 - 8).  We should rejoice in the prospect of the future good that we shall receive from these trials.

2.     Faith must be tried.  It can only be proved by trial.  How often faith is counterfeited!  Trials are given that we may determine if we are leaning on the flesh or the Lord.  If I would know the genuineness of my faith, if I would know that I have not run in vain, if I would know that I am not a stony-ground hearer, my faith must be tried.

3.     Trials not only reveal faith, but they work, bring out and 

 encourage patience (Rom. 5:3).  Were God not to try us,

 leaving us free from trouble, we would never learn patience,

 pity, compassion or perseverance.”
