The Word of God

 “If the Word of God approves you, you are approved. 

If the Word of God disapproves you, you are disapproved.

Have friends praised you?

They may be your enemies in so doing.

Have other observers abused you?

They may be wrong or right, let the Book decide.

A man of one Book—if that Book is the Bible—is a man, for he is a man of God. Cling to the living Word and let the Gospel of your fathers, let the Gospel of the martyrs, let the Gospel of the Reformers, let the Gospel of the bloodwashed multitude before the Throne of God, the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ—be your Gospel and none but that— and it will save you and make you the means of saving others to the praise of God.”

May 17, 1887 by C.H. Spurgeon

Linking up today with Tracy for Winsome Wednesday and Internet Cafe Devotions for Word Filled Wednesday.
