Jesus is Accessible

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. – Song of Songs 2:1

Oh, blessed be my Master’s name! He has brought us a common salvation, and He is the common people’s Christ! …He is a fountain, bearing this inscription, “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” Why do roses grow in Sharon? Why do lilies grow in the valleys? Why, to be plucked, of course! I like to see the children go down into the meadow when it is decked in grass, and adorned with flowers, gilded with buttercups, or white with the day’s-eyes; I love to see the children pluck the flowers, and fill their pinafores with them, or make garlands, and twist them round their necks, or put them on their heads. “O children, children!” somebody might cry, “do not spoil those beautiful flowers, do not go and pick them.” Oh, but they may! nobody says they may not; they may not go into our gardens, and steal the geraniums and the fuchsias; but they may get away into the meadows, or into the open fields, and pluck these common flowers to their heart’s content. And now, poor soul, if you would like an apronful of roses, come and have them. If you would like to carry away a big handful of the lilies of the valleys, come and take them, as many as you will. May the Lord give you the will! That is, after all, what is wanted; if there be that grace-given will, the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the valleys will soon be yours. They are common flowers, growing in a common place, and there are plenty of them; will you not take them? ~ C.H. Spurgeon

  1. I was just thinking about the RCC-and how the Holy Bible God’s Written Word and Jesus The Living Word-never mentions praying to Mary -Jesus’ earthly mother😞💔They believe the lie of Satan but think they are “doing” good by reading their prayers to “her” and dead men 💔😞

    • My mother in law the other day said “I need to go eat breakfast and say my prayers- I mean read my prayers.”… 💔😞
      I have said so many things to her about the RCC that I just turned around and got to work… I pray she turns away from their lies before she exits this world. As long as she’s still breathing there’s hope!!!
