Randy Alcorn's Blog: faithfulness

Charles Spurgeon on Security

C. H. SpurgeonThis devotional is from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening: Daily Readings. There’s hardly any man outside of Scripture itself who speaks to me like Spurgeon does. I highly recommend Morning and Evening as a daily dose of great theology. You can also sign up to receive them each day by email.

“Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
                     — 1 Thessalonians 5:24

Don’t Stop Voting (you do it every day with the choices you make)

Read BibleThe election is over, but the truth is that every season of our lives is election season. Voting isn’t something you do just every few years. We cast multiple votes each day. We cast votes for Heaven or Hell, for grace or truth. For self-control or self-indulgence. For the Spirit or the flesh. For abiding in Christ, or independence from Christ. For wisdom or foolishness, and blessing or curse.

Excellence or Faithfulness?

SkatesNanci and I have a confession to make—we’re sick and tired of hearing so much about the importance of excellence in all things. While we’re all for excellence, and all of us should strive for it in some areas, it is impossible for any of us to be excellent in everything.

Francis Schaeffer on Spiritual Adultery

Francis Schaeffer

Francis Schaeffer was one of three writers (the others being Lewis and Tozer) who influenced me most profoundly when I was a new believer in the early 1970’s. I remember like it was yesterday reading his The Church Before the Watching World, where he said the following.

God Is Watching and Documenting the Faithful Deeds of His Children

open bookThere are many stories of men who faithfully served Jesus and shared the gospel, despite never seeing any of the fruit from his efforts for many years.

While we may never seem to see any results from serving the Lord here on Earth, Malachi 3:16-18 is a remarkable passage that tells us God is watching and is documenting the faithful deeds of his children on Earth.
