In a recent sermon Pete mentioned a book called Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon.
The version shown here has been edited by Alistair Begg to use modern day English.
Alistair Begg has updated Spurgeon’s language while preservingthe dignity and clarity of his original words. Uses the English Standard Version for the Scripture text for the perfect complementto Spurgeon’s insights.
It’s a extremely helpful book that takes one verse each morning and evening and provides a short devotional to encourage you to think and pray.
The Bible Gateway publish the original text from Spurgeon. It’s also available as an app for iPhone and Android phones.
Here’s a quote from 28th August:
“Sing, O barren” (Isaiah 54:1). Sing, believer, for it will cheer thine own heart, and the hearts of other desolate ones. Sing on, for now that thou art really ashamed of being barren, thou wilt be fruitful soon; now that God makes thee loath to be without fruit he will soon cover thee with clusters. The experience of our barrenness is painful, but the Lord’s visitations are delightful. A sense of our own poverty drives us to Christ, and that is where we need to be, for in him is our fruit found.
