The way to spiritual wealth!
The following is from Spurgeon's sermon,
"Peter After His Restoration" #2035. Luke 22:32
Communion with Christ is the happiest life.
If you gained all the world and did not lose
your soul but only lost the light of Christ's
countenance for a few days, you would have
made a poor bargain.
There is Heaven in every glance of His eye!
There is infinite joy in every word of His mouth
when He speaks comfortably to His servants.
Do not go away from Him.
Abide in Christ and let His Words abide in you.
Closer, closer, closer- this is
the way to spiritual wealth!
To follow afar off and live at a distance from
Christ, even if it does not make your soul
perish, yet it will wither up your joys and make
you feel an unhappy man, an unhappy woman.
