We Need Fathers
Christian parents need to stop shirking their God-given responsibilities of teaching their children! God will hold us accountable for their education and we cannot trust anyone else to do it in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. [Read More]
Where will you spend eternity?
Many today do not realize they need God. Their lives are filled with contentment, peace, joy, happiness, and love.
So, obviously, they don't understand when a Christian tells them that they need to seek the Lord to find all of those
objectives. They do not feel a "God-shaped vacuum in their heart" as many well-meaning Christians tell them. As a result,
they are not interested in becoming a Christian. And if they do give it a try, it is just a temporary thing that they try

Spurgeon's Daily Devotionals
Morning, June 2
"For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh."
Galatians 5:17 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
If the young man in the gospel used this title in speaking to our Lord, how much more fitly may I thus address him! He is indeed my Master in both senses, a ruling Master and a teaching Master. I delight to run upon his errands, and to sit at his feet. I am both his servant and his disciple, and count it my highest honour to own the double character. If he should ask me why I call him "good," I should have a ready answer. It is true that "there is none good but one, that is, God," but then he is God, and all the goodness of Deity shines forth in him. In my experience, I have found him good, so good, indeed, that all the good I have has come to me through him. He was good to me when I was dead in sin, for he raised me by his Spirit's power; he has been good to me in all my needs, trials, struggles, and sorrows. Never could there be a better Master, for his service is freedom, his rule is love: I wish I were one thousandth part as good a servant. When he teaches me as my Rabbi, he is unspeakably good, his doctrine is divine, his manner is condescending, his spirit is gentleness itself. No error mingles with his instruction--pure is the golden truth which he brings forth, and all his teachings lead to goodness, sanctifying as well as edifying the disciple. Angels find him a good Master and delight to pay their homage at his footstool. The ancient saints proved him to be a good Master, and each of them rejoiced to sing, "I am thy servant, O Lord!" My own humble testimony must certainly be to the same effect. I will bear this witness before my friends and neighbours, for possibly they may be led by my testimony to seek my Lord Jesus as their Master. O that they would do so! They would never repent so wise a deed. If they would but take his easy yoke, they would find themselves in so royal a service that they would enlist in it for ever.
