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."

Man Sues Church for Getting What He Asked God For

A very short article here reads:

‘A man says he was so consumed by the spirit of God that he fell and hit his head while worshipping. Now he wants Lakewind Church to pay $2.5 million for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.’

So, let me get this straight. Mr. Lincoln goes to church, prays that God would allow him to have ‘a real experience’, gets knocked down ‘from the force of the spirit’, which has happened previous times, and now wants to sue the church for injuries he claims to have been given not by the church, but by the very Holy Spirit of God - and at his own request?

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘be careful what you ask for?’ I think one must realize if you tell God to give you an experience, you better be ready to live with the consequences of your own request.

Don’t temp the Lord thy God!

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.
