WEARABLE, WASHABLE, WORKABLE FAITH!
-Spurgeon, "The Blessing of Full Assurance"
We need also to have our faith increased in the sense
of its becoming more practical.
Some people have a fine new faith,
as pretty as the bright poker in the parlor, and as useless.
We need an everyday faith, not to look at, but to use.
Brothers and sisters, we need faith for the kitchen and the
pantry, as well as for the parlor and the conservatory.
We need workshop faith, as well as prayer-meeting faith.
We need faith as to the common things of life,
and the trying things of death.
We could do with less paint if we had more power.
We need less varnish and more verity.
God give to you that you may believe on the name of the Son
of God with a sound, common-sense faith, -which will be found
wearable, and washable, and workable throughout life.
