C.H. Spurgeon on Faith

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, January 21, 2011 at 8:00 AM

"let it never be forgotten that when a man is down, he has a grand opportunity for trusting in God.  A false faith can only float in smooth water, but true faith, like a life-boat, is at home in storms.   If our religion does not bear us up in time of trial, what is the use of it?  If we cannot believe God when our circumstances appear to be against us, we do not believe Him at all!  We trust a thief as far as we can see him.  Shall we dare to treat our God in that fashion?"
~Charles Spurgeon~

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, January 7, 2011 at 9:00 AM

"The main trouble with the Christian Church today is that she is too much like a clinic, too much like a hospital; that is why the great world is going to hell outside! Look at the great campaign, look at it objectively, look at it from God's standpoint. Forget yourself and your temporary troubles and ills for the moment; fight in the army. It is not a clinic you need; you must realize that we are in a barracks, and that we are involved in a mighty campaign."
Martyn Lloyd-Jones
