Young Man, Is This for You?
Charles H. Spurgeon
Behold, dear friends, the overflowing, ever-flowing power of our Lord Jesus Christ. He had wrought a great work upon the centurion's servant, and now, only a day after, He raises the dead. "It came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain." Day to day utters speech concerning His deeds of goodness. Did He save your friend yesterday? His fullness is the same; if you seek Him, His love and grace will flow to you today. He blesses this day, and He blesses the day after.

When Baal is on a journey, or sleeps, his deluded worshipers cannot hope for his help; but when Jesus journeys or sleeps, a word will find Him ready to conquer death or to quell the tempest.
