Possess, Not Only Profess !!!!!!

Possess, Not Only Profess !!!!!!

For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance. (Matthew 13:12)

When the Lord has given to a man much grace, He will give him more. A little faith is a nest egg; more faith will come to it. But then it must not be seeming faith, but real and true. What a necessity is laid upon us to make sure work in religion and not to profess much, and possess nothing! For one of these days the very profession will be taken from us, if that be all we have. The threatening is as true as the promise.

Blessed be the Lord, it is His way when He has once made a beginning to go on bestowing the graces of His Spirit, till He who had but little, and yet truly had that little, is made to have abundance. Oh, for that abundance! Abundance of grace is a thing to be coveted, It would be well to know much but better to love much. It would be delightful to have abundance of skill to serve God but better still to have abundance of faith to trust in the Lord for skill and everything.

Lord, since Thou hast given me a sense of sin, deepen my hatred of evil. Since Thou hast caused me to trust Jesus, raise my faith to full assurance. Since Thou hast made me to love Thee, cause me to be carried away with vehement affection for Thee!

C.H. Spurgeon, Faith’s Checkbook

    “Lord, since Thou hast given me a sense of sin, deepen my hatred of evil.” Oh, Dear Levi, this is my prayer for my whole family. As my teenager is getting bombarded with life, it is especially my prayer for her. The devil crouches at the door waiting for opportunities each day. I always pray she is growing daily in her hatred of the sins she is coming to recognize as commonplace among the world.

    Thank you for this word today. As always, you are in my prayers for a blessed day for you and your family. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!! 🙂 Hope you are rested from your vacation.
