June 2018 “The Lord Jesus fills out every type, figure, and character; and when the vessel is filled there is an overflow. Emblems to set him forth may be multiplied as the drops of the morning, but the whole multitude will fail to reflect all his brightness. Creation is too small a frame in which to hang his likeness. Human thought is too contracted, human speech too feeble, to set him forth to the full. When all the emblems in earth and heaven shall have described him to their utmost, there will remain a somewhat not yet described. You may square the circle ere you can set forth Christ in the language of mortal men. He is inconceivably above our conceptions, unutterably above our utterances. ”

July 2018 Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strengths. Remember, the Lord’s goodness and mercies have often ridden to the door of our hearts on the black horse of sorrow.

C H Spurgeon
