“The raw recruit is not trusted with the general’s sword; but here are you armed with the weapon of God the Holy Ghost, and called upon to bear that sacred sword which is so gloriously wielded by the Lord God himself. This we are to bear, and no other. Does the timid heart enquire, ‘Wherewithal, my Master, shall I meet my adversaries?’ ‘Here,’ saith the Holy Ghost, ‘take this! This is my own sword; I have done great marvels with it; take it, and nothing shall stand against you.’ When you remember the potency of this sword, when the Spirit tests it upon yourself, you may take it with confidence, and use it in your holy war with full assurance. That Word of God which could convert you, can convert anybody; if it could kill your despair, it can remove another man’s despondency; if it has conquered your pride and self-will, it can subdue the like in your children and your neighbors. Having done what it has certainly done for you, you may have a full persuasion that, before its power, no case is hopeless. Wherefore, see to it, that you use from this day forth no other weapon than the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” – C.H. Spurgeon 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥

yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
