Looking the Wrong Direction

“Men in the days of Whitfield looked back to the days of Bunyan; men in the days of Bunyan wept for the days of Wycliffe, and Calvin, and Luther; and men in their day then wept for the days of Augustine and Chrysostom. Men in those days wept for the Apostles; and doubtless men in the days of the Apostles wept for the days of Jesus Christ; and no doubt some in the days of Jesus Christ were so blind as to wish to return to the days of the prophets, and thought more of the days of Elijah than they did of the most glorious day of Christ. Some men look more to the past than the present. Rest assured that Jesus Christ is the same today as He was yesterday, and He will be the same forever.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
