So I started this well-known devotional about a year ago and honestly, I find it to be the best devotional that I have ever read. Much better than those currently on the market.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, while he is rendered “The Prince of Preachers”, he is also a fantastic writer. His words are soul stirring and uplifting all at once while remaining true to Scripture. Moreover, Spurgeon kept things Gospel-Centric, making sure that one would continue to look unto Jesus. Each day is a twofold devotional – hence the title name. What I like about it is that it keeps the reader consistent with the book while meditating on what was read for that particular day.
But in fact, Morning and Evening initially consisted of two separate works before being put together. Morning by morning was published in 1865 and followed by Evening by Evening in 1868. According to the ministry Truth For Life, Pastor Alistair Begg updated the devotional into modern English as well as using the ESV on the Bible verses instead of the original KJV.
I cannot even begin to explain as to how much this devotional has blessed me. Sometimes a post would even bring me to tears because it would be exactly what I needed to hear. No entry is monotonous, meaning each entry has something different to offer. Some are more encouraging while others more convicting. It is never sugarcoated, watered down, nor cheesy. In short, Spurgeon pulled no punches!
In closing, Morning and Evening is a MUST-have for Christians. I believe that it would deepen one’s walk with the Lord as it has for so many over the years. I am thankful to God for using Charles Spurgeon to bless the Body of Christ with his devotional.
