Perspective of Life by Charles Spurgeon

In slightly less than 58 years, Charles Spurgeon, the British Baptist preacher, wrote and preached the hundreds of sermons that made him one of the most influential preachers ever. Mark Driscoll called Spurgeon, one of today’s most quoted preachers, “The greatest Bible preacher outside of Scripture.” The elegance of his arguments makes them memorable. Out of all his quotes, here is the collection of 30 can explain true perception of life as a Christian....Read Here

In this verse, the Apostle Paul makes a bold statement concerning his salvation. He tells us that he is confident that his salvation is eternal in nature. But, is it really? Is salvation something we can be sure of, or is it something we must simply hope will work out for us in the end? Can a Christian truly have absolute assurance that he or she is saved? And, can the Christian be sure that he or she will never be lost again? Is there anything you or I could do that would cause Jesus to take away our salvation? Is it possible for us to decide that we didn't want to be a Christian anymore and lose it that way? What I am asking is can God really keep me saved? Most would say "No!" The majority, of those who claim to be Christians, holds to the view that says man can, by the exercise of his own free will turn from God to sin at any time and be lost. This is the view held by the nearly every church in town. They believe and teach that it is possible for a person to be lost after they have come to Jesus Christ for salvation. They teach that man's free will allows him the right to choose between salvation and sin at his own choice....Read More 

There is a medicine so powerful it can cure every sickness and disease known to man. It has no dangerous side effects. It is safe even in massive doses. And when taken daily according to directions, it can prevent illness altogether and keep you in vibrant health. Does that sound too good to be true? It's not. I can testify to you by the Word of God and by my own experience that such a supernatural medicine exists. Even more importantly, it is available to you every moment of every day. You don't have to call your doctor to get it. You don't even have to drive to the pharmacy. All you must do is reach for your Bible, open to Proverbs 4:20-24 and follow the instructions you find there: "My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health (Hebrew: medicine) to all their Gloria Copeland

Jeff was basically a good kid. He went to church every Sunday with his family and he stayed out of trouble, yet something was missing in his life. At age fourteen he experienced a time of great depression. What made the difference, helping him pull out of his depression, were these three simple words: "Jesus loves me."..Read More

Today it seems like everyone's stressed. Yes, it's true that we're built to withstand a certain amount of stress, and it can help us to become better problem solvers. But we shouldn't be so stressed that we can't handle our day-to-day life. There's only so much we can take. For example, a chair is designed to bear a certain amount of weight. And if it's used properly, it should last a very long time. But if it consistently bears more weight than it was designed to hold, it will wear out prematurely and eventually break. You and I were also designed to bear a certain amount of physical, mental and emotional strain. When we take on more than we can handle, we eventually break down. The Way to Set Limits:A word we don't hear much about today is prudence. It means "careful management: economy." In the Bible, prudence or prudent means "being good stewards or managers of the gifts God has given us to use." Those gifts include time, energy, strength and health—even material possessions. They include our bodies, as well as our minds and spirits. Just as each one of us has been given a different set of gifts, each of us has been given different levels of ability to manage those gifts. We need to know our limits, and prevent ourselves from reaching "full capacity" or "overload." Instead of pushing ourselves too hard to please others or reach our own personal goals, we need to listen to God and do what He's telling us is wise. We need to learn to put God's wisdom into practice so we can enjoy our lives....Know More
