Welcome Back, My Friends - 2019
Welcome all 'new visitors', who have found 'my house in and with Jesus'.
It just does not matter! Whether I am in Wilmington, North Carolina on a little 'river cruise' on the Cape Fear River, in Athens, Greece, or, anywhere else, like here in Nassau, Bahamas, [where 'protective walls' are everywhere], still we meet and have a wonderful time. For this year, 2019, in all the 'rooms' of 'my house in and with Jesus', I pray you and I will continue to meet and have the same wonderful, growing times, in the Lord. Amen. Amen. How then, shall we start the year - 2019?
Let us continue from Post 4, February 17, 2019 with our 'series' of 'devotions' from my favorite pastor of old, The Morning and Evenings Devotions of Charles Haddon Spurgeon [1834-1892]. Amen. Amen.
What do you lack? [Additions and Holy Bible Scripture references - SMQ]
“And she did eat, and was sufficed, and left.”
Ruth 2:14 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'Whenever we are privileged to eat of the bread which Jesus gives, we are, like Ruth, satisfied with the full and sweet repast. When Jesus is the host, no guest goes empty from the table. Our head is satisfied with the precious truth which Christ reveals;
our heart is content with Jesus, as the altogether lovely object of affection;
our hope is satisfied, for whom have we in heaven but Jesus?
and our desire is satiated, for what can we wish for more than “to know Christ and to be found in him?”'
What therefore do you lack?
'Jesus fills our conscience till it is at perfect peace;
our judgment with persuasion of the certainty of his teachings;
our memory with recollections of what he has done,
and our imagination with the prospects of what he is yet to do.
As Ruth was “sufficed, and left,” so is it with us. We have had deep draughts; we have thought that we could take in all of Christ; but when we have done our best we have had to leave a vast remainder. We have sat at the table of the Lord’s love, and said, “Nothing but the infinite can ever satisfy me; I am such a great sinner that I must have infinite merit to wash my sin away;” but we have had our sin removed, and found that there was merit to spare; we have had our hunger relieved at the feast of sacred love, and found that there was a redundance of spiritual meat remaining.' So then, what do you lack? Who is to blame? [Revelation 3:20]
'There are certain sweet things in the Word of God which we have not enjoyed yet, and which we are obliged to leave for awhile; for we are like the disciples to whom Jesus said, “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”' [John 16:12] Thus, we return for more and more, having no need to lack anything. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'Yes, there are graces to which we have not attained; places of fellowship nearer to Christ which we have not reached; and heights of communion which our feet have not climbed. At every banquet of love there are many baskets of fragments left.' [Matthew 14:20; Mark 6:43; John 6:12]
'Let us magnify the liberality of our glorious Boaz.'
Thus we need lack nothing from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to whom we cry each day, 'Give us this day, our daily bread'. [Matthew 6:11; Luke 11:3] Amen. Amen.
