CHRIST IS NOT ALL IN ALL...
-Spurgeon, "Sown Among Thorns"
No doubt multitudes who receive Christianity
become regular attendants at our place of worship
and are honest in their moral character;
but Christ is not all in all to them.
He holds a very secondary place in their affections.
Their religion is buried beneath their worldliness.
Sad will their end be.
God in mercy save us from such a doom!
There is only a certain amount of thought and energy in a
person; and if the world gets it, Christ cannot have it.
If our thoughts run upon care and pleasure,
they cannot be eager about true religion.
Is not that clear?
