Spurgeon: the word from His mouth

Monday, August 1, 2022
    Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
    —2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (NIV)
    If the anointing which we bear come not from the Lord of hosts we are deceivers, and since only in prayer can we obtain it, let us continue instant, constant, fervent in supplication... Think not to be a messenger of grace to others till you have seen the God of grace for yourselves, and had the word from his mouth.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), Lectures to My Students, New York: R. Carter & Brothers, 1890, p. 80-81 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 1:21-22; Ps. 45:7; Isa. 59:21; Rom. 8:9; 1 John 2:20,27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, speak continually within me, that I may always listen for Your voice.
