Bible Text: Habakkuk 2:2-4; 18-20; 3:1-16 |

Studies in the book of Habakkuk In order to grow in grace, we must be much alone. It is not in society that the soul grows most vigorously. In one single quiet hour of prayer it will often make more progress than in days of company with others. It is in the desert that the dew falls freshest and the air is purest.—Andew Bonar.

Bible Text: John 8:32-36 |

John Newton’s description of himself: "At this period," he writes, "my temper and conduct were exceeding various. At school, or soon after, I had little concern about religion, and easily received very ill impressions. But I was often disturbed with convictions. From a child I was fond of reading… I began to pray, to read the Scriptures, and to keep a sort of diary. I was, presently, religious in my own eyes; but, alas, this seeming goodness had no solid foundation, but passed away like a morning cloud, or an early dew! I was soon weary, gradually gave it

Series:

“You will say that these are very small sins and doubtless, like all young tempters, you are anxious to be able to report spectacular wickedness. But do remember, the only thing that matters is the extent to which you separate the man from the enemy (God). It does not matter how small the sins are, provided that their cumulative effect is to keep the man away from the Light… Murder is no better than cards if cards can do the trick.

Bible Text: Deuteronomy 20 |

Deuteronomy 20 Excerpts from a sermon by C.H. Spurgeon preached in 1870: “And then, my brethren, if fear finds food within, it also very readily finds food without. Sometimes it is poverty, sometimes sickness, sometimes the recollection of the past, and quite as often dread of the future.
