"There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. We are today accepted in the Beloved, today absolved from sin, today acquitted at the bar of God. Oh! soul-trasnporting thought! ....
Let present privilege awaken us to present duty, and now, while life lasts, let us spend and be spent for our sweet Lord Jesus."
Grant and I had both bookmarked parts of this devotional from C.H. Spurgeon's Morning & Evening. That last line in particular just stuck in my mind for weeks. What is the meaning of today? Oh, yes! To spend my time, effort, money, thoughts, and words for Jesus. So, am I being used up today? Good! That's the whole point.
Since I loved this quote so much, I designed a new print for our kitchen. We love it.
