Psalm 86:9. All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name.
David was not a believer in the theory that the world will grow worse and worse and that the dispensation will wind up with general darkness, and idolatry. Earth's sun is to go down amid tenfold night if some of our prophetic brethren are to be believed. Not so do we expect, but we look for day when the dwellers in all lands shall learn righteousness, shall trust in the Saviour, shall worship Thee alone, O God, and shall glorify thy name.
The modern notion has greatly damped the zeal of the church for missions, and the sooner it is shown to be unscriptural the better for the cause of God. It neither consorts with prophecy, honours God, nor inspires the church with ardour. Far hence be it driven!
C.H. Spurgeon, 1869.

As for Spurgeon, look at the feather in his hand. He had to constantly dip his quill in the ink. Yet he still found time to accomplish many things.
Let us keep our eyes on the prize. If we live for Him - we shall reign with Him!
So good to see you, Dan.0 0 0
