Quote for today ...

This is one of my favorite quotes from Spurgeon:

Charles H. Spurgeon, the noted Baptist preacher, made it clear that salvation comes at the time of faith in Christ. He used a simple illustration. "The hand of faith that receives Christ is similar to children receiving an apple in their hands. You hold the apple out to the child and they must step toward you in order to receive it from you. This is a mixture of faith and receiving on the child's part. It is the same with someone who wants to receive salvation. What the child's hand is to the apple, your faith is to salvation. The child's hand does not make the apple, improve the apple, or deserve the apple; it simply takes it" (All of Grace, Charles H. Spurgeon, p. 61).
