For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

Great Mercy In Christ!

Psalm 119:17: Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live and keep your word.

Commenting on these words, Spurgeon wrote:
David's great needs required a bountiful provision, and his little desert could never give such a supply. Thus, he throws himself on God's grace and looks to the Lord and His great goodness for the great things he needs. He begs for heavy grace, like the one who prayed, "Oh, Lord, You must give me great mercy, or no mercy, for little mercy will not help me!"

Charles Spurgeon, Beside Still Waters, Ed. Roy H. Clarke (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1999), 102.
