Monday Morning Munch No. 69 – Why is it that some Christians…?

My sweet friend Betty (check out her awesome blog here) posted this quote from my old friend (in my heart) Charles Spurgeon and I’ve been thinking about it ever since:

 

“Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord. . . .” -Charles Spurgeon

    Amen. Charles Spurgeon set for us an excellent, faithful example of reflecting the Son. http://spurgeonwarquotes.wordpress.com/
