Run the Race and Don’t Be Lazy – Basilea Schlink

Do not be lazy. Run each day’s race with all your might, so that at the end you will receive the victory wreath from God. Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.

The Benefit of Waiting – Charles Spurgeon

If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait, let us do so with our whole hearts; for blessed are all they that wait for Him. He is worth waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith, exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing when it comes. The Lord’s people have always been a waiting people.

– Charles Spurgeon –


An Active Faith – Matthew Henry

An active faith can give thanks for a promise, though it be not as yet performed, knowing that God’s bonds are as good as ready money [cash]. 

– Matthew Henry –


Jesus is the Victor! – Basilea Schlink
