Good News for Everyday Life
The good news about who Jesus is and what He has done is the best possible news for everybody in any situation. But we don’t often see it like that.
At best we tend to think about Christianity as the spiritual equivalent of eating spinach - we know it’s supposed to be good for us but we don’t expect to enjoy it!
Letting Jesus look behind the mask
Everyone says the church is full of hypocrites. Are they right?
But before I start thinking about all the hypocrites I know, I need to start a little closer to home. Am I a hypocrite?
Jesus called a lot of religious people hypocrites. If I call someone a hypocrite, I might be wrong. When God starts calling people hypocrites, I’d better listen. The 15 daily readings in this book examine the hypocrisy that Jesus unearthed in the religious leaders of his day. Take 5 minutes today to diagnose your inner hypocrite but also find joy for the two-faced; the joy that only Jesus can bring.
Daily Readings for Advent by Spurgeon
In the midst of the business of December, take 5 minutes each day and let Spurgeon warm your heart with joy that can only be found in the good news of Jesus Christ.
“This is the season of the year when, whether we wish it or not, we are compelled to think of the birth of Christ.” said Charles Spurgeon at the start of his sermon on 23rd December 1855. After dispelling any notion of a religious necessity of celebrating Christmas, he went on, “However, I wish there were ten or a dozen Christmas-days in the year” as an opportunity to preach on the incarnation of Jesus.
