Read the “1108 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.” – (John 6:68)

I remember recently having a discussion with a close friend of mine about whether he ever thought about quitting on God. His answer kind of reminded me of Peter’s answer in John 6:68 above. He said, “where am I going to go?”. What he was actually saying was that there is only one hope for salvation and that is in the Person of Jesus Christ. Who else could we possibly turn to? There is no one else.

I have been saved now for many years and in that time I have experienced many mountaintops. It is easy to praise God and exalt His name when things are going very well. However, I have also been in the valley many times due to some bad decisions that I have made. In the valley it is not always so easy to praise the Lord. In fact it is not always easy to even see the Lord. There have been times that I have actually contemplated throwing in the towel and turning my back on the Lord and His church. By the grace of God He has kept me in, but I think what has always helped me was the fact that God would remind me that I really have no alternative. Who would I go to? What would I do? If I thought the valley I was in at the time was bad, I wondered how much worse life would be without the Lord. My faith in God and the promises of His Word would always keep me from quitting.

Praise the Lord for His grace! Let me encourage you, don’t run from the Lord – run to Him. He has the Words of eternal life!

Amen Pastor. There is a old saying if you think you have it bad, there is someone worse off than you. If any disagree with me, I would ask you, if you and your family were ever put into an arena with 400 hundred pound lions waiting to be eaten alive; or, being crucified on a cross; or your children being dismembered before your eyes; or being burned alive or being filleted alive.
And the list goes on. It is a sobering thought what Christians went through for the cause of Jesus. Thanks for the post Pastor

I always wonder who the lost go to for comfort in times of trouble. They do not have the great comforter. How terrible that must be. I am never lonely because Jesus is always with me. The lost do not understand that either. So sad.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
