Reader, this is an important question. Listen to the Christian’s answer, and see if it is yours. “On whom dost thou trust?” “I trust,” says the Christian, “in a triune God. I trust the Father, believing that He has chosen me from before the foundations of the world; I trust Him to provide for me in providence, to teach me, to guide me, to correct me if need be, and to bring me home to His own house where the many mansions are. I trust the Son. Very God of very God is He-the man Christ Jesus. I trust in Him to take away all my sins by His own sacrifice, and to adorn me with His perfect righteousness. I trust Him to be my Intercessor, to present my prayers and desires before His Father’s throne, and I trust Him to be my Advocate at the last great day, to plead my cause, and to justify me. I trust Him for what He is, for what He has done, and for what He has promised yet to do. And I trust the Holy Spirit-He has begun to save me from my inbred sins; I trust Him to drive them all out; I trust Him to curb my temper, to subdue my will, to enlighten my understanding, to check my passions, to comfort my despondency, to help my weakness, to illuminate my darkness; I trust Him to dwell in me as my life, to reign in me as my King, to sanctify me wholly, spirit, soul, and body, and then to take me up to dwell with the saints in light for ever.”
Oh, blessed trust! To trust Him whose power will never be exhausted, whose love will never wane, whose kindness will never change, whose faithfulness will never fail, whose wisdom will never be nonplussed, and whose perfect goodness can never know a diminution! Happy art thou, reader, if this trust is thine! So trusting, thou shalt enjoy sweet peace now, and glory hereafter, and the foundation of thy trust shall never be removed. – C.H. Spurgeon
Trinitarian Bible Society (Canada) – Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 12, 2023
The early blushes of autumn colour remind us it is time for the fall meeting of the Society. Our lead speaker will be Mr. Adrian Stoutjesdyk, our retiring General Secretary. He hopes to use the words from Psalm 68.11: “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it” to reflect upon his years in his position. He will also introduce and welcome his successor, Mr. William Grisnich from Coaldale, Alberta.
Friends, please reserve Thursday, October 12, for the meeting which will begin at 8:00 p.m. in the fellowship room of the Ebenezer Free Reformed Church. 253 Weirs Lane, Dundas, ON L9H 5E1. Please encourage family and friends to join us. The Society needs your support!
