C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

I’m sure you have heard the saying, “What you don’t know can’t [won’t] hurt you”, but I’m here to tell that “What you don’t know CAN [WILL] hurt you.”

· If you don’t know that you are a sick, you won’t know that you need a Physician. [Matthew 9:12]

· If you don’t know that you are dead in sin, you won’t know that you need to be made alive. [Ephesians 2:1]

· If you don’t know that you are in bondage, you won’t know that you can be made free [Galatians 5:1].

· If you don’t know the gospel of Jesus Christ, you won’t know to trust in Him [Romans 10:13-15].

· If you don’t know Satan’s devices, you won’t know how to defend against them [2 Corinthians 2:11].

· If you don’t know the scriptures, you won’t know how to “shun profane and vain babblings” [2 Timothy 2:15-16].

· If you don’t know how to pray, you won’t have a close relationship with God [1 Thessalonians 5:17].

· If you don’t know how to witness, you won’t have a productive Christian walk [Matthew 5:16].

The list could go on, but let this be but a glimpse into a danger of “What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You”. It may not just be you that it hurts either. It may very well be your spouse, your child, your co-worker, your friend, your parent, or the neighbor you don’t even know is looking.

We are all being watched – when we don’t know it.

Are you a Christian and no one else knows it?

You can know:
Trust in Christ as your Savior. You will be given the Holy Spirit. Trust the scriptures that God has given, read and pray that the Spirit will guide and give you wisdom. Then witness to someone else, sharing the blessed gospel of Jesus Christ!

Amen, Amen.

Another similar saying: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.

Many a person has been hurt and destroyed by things said to them.

Best stop there, wouldn't want to fill your sidebar. God Bless

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
