No Cause To Blush !!!!!!

No Cause To Blush !!!!!!

Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed. (Isaiah 54.4)

We shall not be ashamed of our faith. Carping critics may assail the Scriptures upon which we ground our belief, but every year the Lord will make it more and more clear that in His Book there is no error, no excess, and no omission. It is no discredit to be a simple believer; the faith which looks alone to Jesus is a crown of honor on any man’s head and better than a star on his breast.

We shall not be ashamed of our hope. It shall be even as the Lord has said. We shall be fed, led, blest, and rested. Our Lord will come, and then the days of our mourning shall be ended. How we shall glory in the Lord who first gave us lively hope and then gave us that which we hoped for!

We shall not be ashamed of our love. Jesus is to us the altogether lovely, and never, never, shall we have to blush because we have yielded our hearts to Him. The sight of our glorious Well-beloved will justify the most enthusiastic attachment to Him. None will blame the martyrs for dying for Him. When the enemies of Christ are clothed with everlasting contempt, the lovers of Jesus shall find themselves honored by all holy beings, because they chose the reproach of Christ rather than the treasures of Egypt.

C.H. Spurgeon, Faith’s Checkbook

    I needed this encouragement today! My sister has recently decided that she is atheist and longer believes in God, and she has been posting these awful things on Facebook and pinterest (quotes from various scientists and celebrities) against religion, particularly Christianity, some that ate extremely hurtful and upsetting. I’ve been almost afraid to mention things to her, like me and my kids pray for her, because that might offend her. It’s a tough situation, and I thank you for posting this.
