Thursday, July 29th - Evening

All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me. - John 6:37

— Morning & Evening, with Charles Spurgeon Devotionals

This declaration involves the doctrine of election: there are some whom the Father gave to Christ. It involves the doctrine of effectual calling: these who are given must and shall come; however stoutly they may set themselves against it, yet they shall be brought out of darkness into God's marvellous light. It teaches us the indispensable necessity of faith; for even those who are given to Christ are not saved except they come to Jesus. Even they must come, for there is no other way to heaven but by the door, Christ Jesus. All that the Father gives to our Redeemer must come to Him, therefore none can come to heaven except they come to Christ.
Oh! the power and majesty which rest in the words "shall come." He does not say they have power to come, nor they may come if they will, but they "shall come." The Lord Jesus doth by His messengers, His word, and His Spirit, sweetly and graciously compel men to come in that they may eat of His marriage supper; and this He does, not by any violation of the free agency of man, but by the power of His grace. I may exercise power over another man's will, and yet that other man's will may be perfectly free, because the constraint is exercised in a manner accordant with the laws of the human mind. Jehovah Jesus knows how, by irresistible arguments addressed to the understanding, by mighty reasons appealing to the affections, and by the mysterious influence of His Holy Spirit operating upon all the powers and passions of the soul, so to subdue the whole man, that whereas he was once rebellious, he yields cheerfully to His government, subdued by sovereign love. But how shall those be known whom God hath chosen? By this result: that they do willingly and joyfully accept Christ, and come to Him with simple and unfeigned faith, resting upon Him as all their salvation and all their desire. Reader, have you thus come to Jesus?

 

Pray for Scotland encourages a weekly prayer pattern modelled on the Apostoles’ prayers for the Church. The advice is taken from their helpful Praying for the Church leaflet:-

Simply read [the following] verse(s) and turn it into your prayer, first for your own life, then for the church…the heart of each prayer is highlighted in bold.

On Thursdays use 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

They also encourage a weekly prayer pattern for our communities and nation. The following advice is taken from their helpful Praying for our Communities guide:-

On Thursdays:-

pray for hospitals and health workers, for the sick, the hurting, the elderly and lonely.
