I want to know who felt the need to call this in.
I wish he would write more. For now I’ll just enjoy his preaching.
An excerpt from Spurgeon’s Lectures To My Students:
How few of us could compare ourselves with Mr. Joseph Alleine, whose character I have mentioned before? “At the time of his health,” writes his wife, “he did rise constantly at or before four of the clock, and would be much troubled if he heard smiths or other craftsmen at their trades before he was at communion with God; saying to me often, ‘How this noise shames me. Does not my Master deserve more than theirs?'”
What a convicting thing to hear. Maybe people went to bed earlier then, but 4 am was still 4 am. How often does sleep cut into how much time I spend with the Lord? Too often. My Master deserves more.
I’m hoping that after you broke into my car and stole my iPod you went under the settings menu, saw that it’s named “Bryan Gumpy’s iPod”, googled my name, and came upon my blog.
I wanted to let you know that if it was so important for you to have an iPod, you could’ve just asked. To be honest, with Winter weather approaching, I’d much rather have my driver’s side window than my iPod. You know, just for future reference.
Also, I thought I’d make some suggestions for listening since you’re the proud new owner my iPod.
For starters, I would listen to the works of John Piper, John MacArthur, Alistair Begg, Mark Driscoll, Francis Chan, and just about anyone else on there that is going to explain in detail your depravity and need for Jesus.
After that, maybe then you’ll be able to appreciate the Christian tunes. Especially ones like Crooked Deep Down by Derek Webb or Blood Is On My Hands by Todd Agnew.
