Daily Spurgeon: Walking In The Truth

Today's Daily Spurgeon is a good reminder that The Truth must be dwelling in us richly first, before we can walk in it.

"For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth."—3 John 3.

"THE truth was in Gaius, and Gaius walked in the truth. If the first had not been the case, the second could never have occurred; and if the second could not be said of him the first would have been a mere pretence. Truth must enter into the soul, penetrate and saturate it, or else it is of no value. Doctrines held as a matter of creed are like bread in the hand, which ministers no nourishment to the frame; but doctrine accepted by the heart, is as food digested, which, by assimilation, sustains and builds up the body. In us truth must be a living force, an active energy, an indwelling reality, a part of the woof and warp of our being. If it be in us, we cannot henceforth part with it. A man may lose his garments or his limbs, but his inward parts are vital, and cannot be torn away without absolute loss of life. A Christian can die, but he cannot deny the truth. Now it is a rule of nature that the inward affects the outward, as light shines from the center of the lantern through the glass: when, therefore, the truth is kindled within, its brightness soon beams forth in the outward life and conversation. It is said that the food of certain worms colours the cocoons of silk which they spin: and just so the nutriment upon which a man's inward nature lives gives a tinge to every word and deed proceeding from him. To walk in the truth, imports a life of integrity, holiness, faithfulness, and simplicity—the natural product of those principles of truth which the gospel teaches, and which the Spirit of God enables us to receive. We may judge of the secrets of the soul by their manifestation in the man's conversation. Be it ours to-day, O gracious Spirit, to be ruled and governed by Thy divine authority, so that nothing false or sinful may reign in our hearts, lest it extend its malignant influence to our daily walk among men."

Brit Hume: Purseuing Faith Instead of Headlines

Brit Hume, who is one of our favorite anchors at Fox News Network, will soon be leaving his anchor position behind to pursue Christ rather than his job. He is an intelligent and heartfelt newscaster who has been with FNN for over 12 years. Some might ask why, at the prime of ones career, would someone choose to step down? But, we see in the Bible that every accolade that we could ever gain is nothing compared to know Christ's worth and glory.


"Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith - that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead."
Philippian 3:8-11

"For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?"
Mark 8:35-37

Haiti School Collapse, Death Toll at 82

On November 7th a school of about 500 collapsed due to poor construction in the shanty town of Petionville, Haiti located outside of the capital, Port-au-prince. The latest news at the time of this publication is that 82 teachers and students are dead. Many, many more people are physically injured or in the depths of morning the loss of a loved one who died at the Promesse Evangelique school.
Please pray for the injured and for the family's of those who were killed. Also pray for safety and guidance for the rescue workers who are still on the scene of the accident.
Haiti is especially close to our hearts at Go Do Something because we are associated with an orphanage as well as seven churches and schools up in the mountains of Haiti. While we are heartbroken for the people who are affected by this accident, but we are hopeful as well. Hopeful that God will use this incident to bring Haiti to the forefront of peoples prayers and ministries and that it will one day not be a country ensnared in Voodoo and darkness but full of Christians praising the living God.

Be Strong and Courageous and Do It

And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever. Be careful now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong and do it. ... Then David said to Solomon his son, "Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished."... And David the king said to all the assembly, "Solomon my son, whom alone God has chosen, is young and inexperienced, and the work is great, for the palace will not be for man but for the LORD God."

-1 Chronicles 28:9-10, 20 and 1 Chronicles 29:1


Being called by God to do something that you alone are not capable of doing is a weighty thing. But, being called by God is not about your ability to do the work, it is about your ability to serve Him with a whole heart and with a willing mind. God has always promised us that the work He calls us to do, will be accomplished by Him. In starting Go Do Something we have felt the weightiness of our own inabilities. But, we find peace in God's promise to those who are obedient to what He has called them to: He is our strength and our provider, nothing is too difficult for Him. We hope and rejoice in the fact that He can use our uselessness. We were greatly encouraged by reading the verses above because we are young and inexperienced, yet we know that God has called us to serve Him through this ministry.

When we look at the vast majority of Christians, we see a watching and waiting world, trembling to do God's will. Rather than, humble servants ready and passionate to fulfill all His commands. We hope these verses move your heart to action for God's glory,"Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you."

    GDS Theme Passage

    "For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus
    Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for
    Jesus' sake. For God, who said, 'Let light shine
    out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give
    the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in
    the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure
    in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power
    belongs to God and not to us."
    - 2 Corinthians 4:5-7
