Meditate on Christ

“I urge you to meditate on Christ, as a piece of scented substance that was perfumed in heaven. It does not matter what you have in your house; this will make it like the fragrance of Paradise— will make it smell like those breezes that once blew through the garden of Eden, carrying the odor of flowers. Oh! there is nothing that can so comfort your spirits, and relieve all your distresses and troubles, as the feeling that now you can meditate on the person of Jesus Christ.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)

      You are eternally in our hearts. Lisa and I rejoice upon every remembrance of you. Your beautiful Japanese “Sovereign Grace” is on my bookshelf in my study, reminding me always of Christ’s love and grace, as well as your love for Christ and your love for us.
