A Great Spurgeon Quote

I am baptist because I am convinced of Believer's Baptism.  Charles Spurgeon was as well.  I found this quote funny from the book Theologians of the Baptist Tradition on page 119.
"Spurgeon soon became convinced he should be baptized by immersion, leaving his Congregational background, at least on that point.  When he announced this decision to his mother, she said, 'Charles, I have often prayed for your conversion, but not that you would become a baptist.'  Charles replied, 'That shows, dear mother, that God has done exceeding abundantly above all you asked or thought.'"

Have you Forgotten the Cross?

I have been thinking a lot about the cross lately.  During hard times, it is easy to get to the point of thinking things are not "fair."  However, let us not forget that Jesus Christ went to the cross though He was completely innocent.  There was no guilt in the Savior.  He became our substitute. He bore the wrath of God that we who believe might have life eternal.  Let us not forget the cross. If the cross is not central in your life, you have drifted far away from where you need to be.  Don't forget the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Bow the knee to the Savior of the world.
