True joy

for September 7

The wine pressed from the grapes of Sodom may sparkle and foam, but the dregs thereof are death; only that which comes from the clusters of the true vine may be safely received as the wine of the King, which makes glad the heart of God and man.

When Christ gives joy it is joy indeed; when the truth makes us glad it is true gladness. Holy joy is the joy of Heaven, and that, be ye sure, is the very cream of joy.

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]
