Me: Are you stuck Prodigal?
Prodigal: Yep, I was trying to be careful but I got stuck anyway!
Me: Let me give you a hand and I also will share.
This is from the book Joy in Christ’s Presence by Charles Spurgeon
In the remembrance of all these redemptions the Lord seems to say to us, “What I have done before, I will do again. I have redeemed you, and I will still redeem you. I have brought you from under the hand of the oppressor; I have delivered you from the tongue of the slanderer; I have borne you up under the load of poverty and sustained you under the pains of sickness; and I am able still to do the same. Why, then, do you fear? Why should you be afraid, since already I have again and again redeemed you? Take heart, and be confident, for even to old age and to death itself I will continue to be your strong Redeemer.”
It can be difficult to remember the Lord as a redeemer. Most of the people are focusing on what tickles their ears and not on God’s truth. Even so, remember that it is better to be hot or cold then luke warm.
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
