Do I know Him as I ought?

I was reading this from Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening.  This was is on the evening of July 15th. "He appeared first to Mary Magdalene." --Mark 16:9 Jesus "appeared first to Mary Magdalene," probably not only on account of her great love and persevering seeking, but because, as the context intimates, she had been a special trophy of Christ's delivering power … But notice how Christ revealed Himself to this sorrowing one--by a word , "Mary." It needed but one word in His voice , and at once she knew Him, and her heart owned allegiance by another word , her heart was too full to say more. That one word would naturally be the most fitting for the occasion. It implies obedience. She said, " Master ." … As I was reading, the verse below came to mind: John 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: As soon as Mary Magdalene heard her name spoken by the Savior, she knew Him.  Do I know Him as I ought?  Do I hear Him

Which is the better choice

There is pleasure of sin for a season: Hebrews 11:24-25  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season ; There are pleasures forever more at the right hand of Christ: Psalms 16:11  Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Which is the better choice?

By the Grace of God

Below is another true story, the testimony of a friend of mine and how God’s grace brought her through some difficult circumstances..  You won’t want to miss this one. When asked to share  my testimony I am always reminded of the verse “But sanctify the Lord god in your hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear”  1Peter 3:15  This is my testimony of my new life in Christ and also for LIFE.  I did not grow up in a Christian home.  My parents both worked and as I grew they did not interact with me much.  I grew up living a very selfish lifestyle.  I was pretty much left to myself. I was a good example of “The rod and reproof give wisdom; but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame” Proverbs 29:15  I craved attention and guidance I needed from my mother and father.  I went looking for it in all the wrong places.  I had an emptiness that I was constantly trying to fill with something
