23 july 365 Days with Spurgeon

Continental tour «4

suggested reading: Job 38:22–30

We went up the Mer de Glace on mules. I had the great satisfaction of hearing three or four avalanches come rolling down like thunder. In descending, I was alone and in front, I sat down and mused, but I soon sprang up, for I thought the avalanche was coming right on me, there was such a tremendous noise and rushing. We crossed many places where the snow, in rushing down from the top, had swept away every tree and every stone, and left nothing but the stumps of the trees, and a kind of slide from the top of the mountain to the very valley. What extraordinary works of God there are to be seen here! We have no idea of what God is. As I went among these valleys, I felt like a little creeping insect, wondering what the world could be, but having no idea of its greatness. I sank lower and lower, and growing smaller and smaller, while my soul kept crying out “Great God, how infinite art thou! What worthless worms are we!”

for meditation (Spurgeon): If you cannot travel, remember this sweet verse:-

“But in his looks a glory stands,

The noblest labour of thine hands;”

Get a view of Christ, and you have seen more than mountains, cascades, and valleys, and seas can ever show you. Thunders may bring their sublimest uproar, and lightnings their awful glory; earth may give its beauty, and stars their brightness; but all these put together can never rival HIM;

“God in the person of his Son,

Has all his mightiest works outdone.”

part of nos. 331–332[1]

    I copied the ‘Get a view of Christ…’ quote. Would you mind if I use this in my weekly blog post. I am always on the lookout for ways to share God’s love and glory.

      I think Spurgeon wonderful…his prose is always full of amazing visuals. I’ve used his quotes in other posts through the years. If I do use the quote I will link back to your post as a way to share more of Spurgeon’s words glorifying God. Thanks so much.
