I've re-started to read J.I. Packer's book entitled, "Knowing God," and in it he has a great quote by Charles Spurgeon that I find "blanket-like!" By that I mean comforting, and still amazing and wonderful, so....here it is:
"Oh, there is, in contemplating Christ, a balm for every wound; in musing on the Father, there is a quietus for every grief; and in the influence of the Holy Ghost, there is a balsam for every sore. Would you lose your sorrow? Would you drown your cares? Then go, plunge yourself in the Godhead's deepest sea; be lost in his immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest, refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can so comfort the soul; so calm the swelling billows of sorrow and grief; so speak peace to the winds of trial, as a devout musing upon the subject of the Godhead."
Spurgeon was only twenty years old at the time he spoke these words. His quote is in the first chapter of Packer's book, and is a warm invitation to continue reading. And I shall do so.
