Thought for the Day: Refocus

C.H. Spurgeon (circa 1857):
Dear friends, the last song in this world, the song of triumph, shall be full of God, and of no one else. Here you praise the instrument, to-day you look on this man and on that, and you say, “Thank God for this minister, and for this man.” To-day you say, “Blessed be God for Luther, who shook the Vatican, and thank God for Whitfield, who stirred up a slumbering church;” but in that day you shall not sing of Luther, nor of Whitfield, nor of any of the mighty ones of God’s hosts; forgotten shall their names be for a season, even as the stars refuse to shine when the sun himself appeareth. The song shall be unto Jehovah, and Jehovah only; we shall not have a word to say for preachers nor bishops, not a syllable to say for good men and true; but the whole song from first to last shall be, “Unto him that loved us, and hath washed us from our sins in his own blood, unto him be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
 This 'thought of the day' comes from one of the greatest preachers the world has ever known: Charles Spurgeon. This thought reminds us of what it means to put God first: to love Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. After-all, life and faith are not about us... how we are doing, or whatever, it is all about God, first and foremost. Praise be to Almighty God! Amen.
