Spurgeon's Morning Devotional thought for Jan. 1

Joshua 5:12b "...They did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year."

"...Unbelief shudders at the Jordan which still rolls between us and the goodly land, but let us rest assured that we have already experienced more ills than death at its worst can cause us. Let us banish every fearful thought, and rejoice with exceeding great joy, in the prospect that this year we shall begin to be "for ever with the Lord."...We will this year gather celestial fruits on earthly ground, where faith and hope have made the desert like the garden of the Lord. Man did eat angel's food of old, and why not now? O for grace to feed on Jesus, and so to eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan this year!"

Charles Spurgeon's Morning and Evening Devotional is excellent. If you are looking for an annual devotional material, you would do very well to look this one up. Once and again, Happy New Year!

Just read this devotion and the january 2nd "Continue in Prayer" devotional to our church on Sunday. Both were very fitting for today.
Enjoy his devotionals. Great minds must think alike.

Pastor Z, glad you stopped by and commented. Perhaps you would try blogging in 2010, yes?

Pastor Chris had the teen group over to his house a couple of weeks ago. One of the games they played was a customized Jepordy game, and the $500 dollar question is how do you spell Zdziarski. None of them got it.
