Spurgeon: communion with Christ

Thursday, June 5, 2014
    Feast of Boniface (Wynfrith) of Crediton, Archbishop of Mainz, Apostle of Germany, Martyr, 754
    They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
    —Luke 24:32 (NIV)
    Above all, feed the flame with intimate fellowship with Christ. No man was ever cold in heart who lived with Jesus on such terms as John and Mary did of old, for he makes men’s hearts burn. I never met with a half-hearted preacher who was much in communion with the Lord Jesus.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), Lectures to My Students, New York: R. Carter & Brothers, 1890, p. 425 (see the book)
    See also Luke 24:32; Deut. 4:24; Jer. 23:29; Matt. 3:11; 28:19-20; Luke 3:16; John 6:63; Acts 2:3; Heb. 4:12; 12:29; 13:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Gospel is continually fresh.
