from the pen of charles spurgeon..

a wise word on growth.

'have i been making a fair show in the flesh without having a corresponding inner life? good growth takes place upwards and downwards at the same time. am i rooted in sincere fidelity and love to Jesus? if my heart remains unsoftened and unfertilized by grace, the good seed may germinate for a season, but it must ultimately wither, for it cannot flourish on a rocky, broken, unsanctified heart.

o heavenly Sower, plough me first, and then cast the truth into me, and let me yield Thee a bounteous harvest.'
