Spurgeon on “Light Without Darkness” ~ 2 Minute Devotional

This world is stained with sin. We can’t get away from it, no matter how hard we try, or how far we go. It manifests itself personally in our lives, and in nature. In our personal lives and relationships, we see pride, envy, lust, hatefulness, and all sorts of sin that manifests itself in our …

Cover My Sins – Psalm 32 NIV 2 Minute Devotional

Sin is so repulsive to us that we try to cover it any way we can. We rationalize it, hide it, laugh at it, or try to balance it with good works. None of this actually works in the long run because we still have a sense of shame. We know instinctively that something is …

Spurgeon on “Thy Faith Hath Saved Thee” ~ 2 Minute Devotional

Are we timid about our relationship to the Lord, or do we dare approach him as a close trusted friend? This Spurgeon quote refers to two passages from the Bible.

Fill My Heart With Joy – Psalm 4 NIV 2 Minute Devotional

Spurgeon on “Resplendent Redemption” – 2 Minute Devotional

In today’s world, redemption seems so bland and colorless. The reason is because sin is only seen as a light shade of gray. It is barely mentioned these days, even from the pulpit.
