Every week, Phil Johnson, Director of John MacArthur’s ministries, shares a “Weekly Dose of Spurgeon“. This week’s post had a particularly powerful punch as Spurgeon asked whether theologians or children have more to teach us about faithfulness. Here’s a particularly salient quote:
Let us but know Jesus and lean our heads on his bosom, and the learned men may speculate as they please. Oh! when the church gets back to her simple faith in Jesus, she shall be qualified for victory; she shall vanquish the world when she has thrown away her wooden sword of carnal reason and has taken up the true Jerusalem blade of faith in God.
Then out of the mouths of babes and sucklings God will do what he never will do out of the months of Scribes and Pharisees and wise men.
May the Lord grant us to be more like babes and sucklings.
