“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.” -John 11:5
Don’t interpret God’s love through the situation you’re going through. Interpret the situation you’re going through through God’s love. -excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon
Clothes are expensive, and poor believers may be led into anxiety as to where their next suit will come from. The soles are thin; how shall we get new shoes? See how our thoughtful Lord has provided against this care. Our heavenly Father clothes the grass of the field with a splendor such as Solomon could not equal: will He not clothe His own children? We are sure He will. There may be many a patch and a darn, but raiment we shall have.
A poor minister found his clothes nearly threadbare, and so far gone that they would hardly hold together; but as a servant of the Lord he expected his Master to find him his livery. It so happened that the writer on a visit to a friend had the loan of the good man’s pulpit, and it came into his mind to make a collection for him, and there was his suit. Many other cases we have seen in which those who had served the Lord have found Him considerate of their wardrobe. He who made man so that when he had sinned he needed garments, also in mercy supplied him with them; and those which the Lord gave to our first parents were far better than those they made for themselves.
[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]
Love should be the rule for the child of God, stimulated by the Spirit of God through the mercies of God. Know the depths of God’s love for you so that you may love others genuinely without facade or hypocrisy.
