Pr 26:20  Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.





(From the sermon “Two Debtors” preached by Charles Spurgeon)


Luke 7: 37  And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38: And stood at his feet behind him weeping…


Our Lord was reclining at his meal, and his feet were turned towards the door, so that she did not have to come far into the house before she reached his feet; and there she stood, “at his feet.” Those are blessed words: “at his feet.” That is the place where we also would stand and weep. That is the place where we would sit and learn. That is the place where we would wait and serve. That is the place where we hope to live and reign for ever: “at his feet.”





Dark the stain that soiled man's nature,
Long the distance that he fell.
Far removed from hope and heaven,
Into deep despair and hell.
But there was a fountain opened,
And the blood of God's own Son,
Purifies the soul and reaches
Deeper than the stain has gone!



Praise the Lord for full salvation,
God still reigns upon His throne.
And I know the blood still reaches
Deeper than the stain has gone.


Conscious of the deep pollution,
Sinners wander in the night,
Tho' they hear the Shepherd calling,
They still fear to face the light.
This the blessed consolation,
That can melt the heart of stone,
That sweet Balm of Gilead reaches
Deeper than the stain has gone!


All unworthy we who've wandered,
And our eyes are wet with tears;
As we think of love that sought us
Through the weary wasted years.
Yet we walk the holy highway,
Walking by God's grace alone
Knowing Calv'ry's fountain reaches
Deeper than the stain has gone!


When with holy choirs we're standing
In the presence of the King,
And our souls are lost in wonder,
While the white robed choirs sing;
Then we'll praise the name of Jesus,
With the millions round the throne;
Praise Him for the pow'r that reaches,
Deeper than the stain has gone!





“Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.” Mt. 18:3


One of the wonderful and amazing things about little children is their implicit trust and confidence in their parents.  They only need a simple statement or promise from Mom or Dad as the foundation of that trust and confidence.  Lengthy explanations are not required nor asked for.  Simply make them a promise and sincere belief and trust springs up in their hearts.  How is this manifest?  They follow Mom and Dad around living on that promise, continually reminding them of it, and awaiting its fulfillment!


     Isn’t that the way the children of God live before their heavenly Father?  “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth” (Heb. 11:13).  Pastor Maurice Montgomery





In Pilgrim’s Progress when Christian and Hopeful were cast into the dungeon of despair in Doubting Castle under the captivity of the giant, after a long time broken and beaten in that dungeon, Christian broke out in “a passionate speech.”  He said, “[Why] am I, thus to lie in a stinking dungeon when I may as well walk at liberty!  I have a key in my bosom, called Promise, that will, I am persuaded, open any lock in Doubting Castle.  Then said Hopeful that’s good news: good brother, pluck it out of thy bosom, and try.”  Of course, the key opened the door and they walked free. 


     Brethren, when we are in that dungeon of despair remember, we have a key called Promise—God’s everlasting covenant promise.   David’s last words were, “Although my house be not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow.” (2 Sa 23:5)   That is the key called Promise that will open any lock in Doubting Castle!
