Serving the Lord



“You and I cannot be useful if we want to be sweet as honey in the mouths of men. God will never bless us if we wish to please men, that they may think well of us.

You must be willing to go and speak for God, though you will be rejected.”

~ Charles Spurgeon 1834-1892

Are you falling short in speaking the truth? So am I.  Just remember, brethren, that while we want to be loving and gracious with others, that a rose has its thorns and a honeybee a sting.

About The Antipas Chronicles:

“…We are a husband and wife of the reformed persuasion dedicated to the study of God’s Word and its application to life in the 21st century.  Neither of us claims to be any sort of Bible teacher or leader in the faith but simply disciples of Christ trying to follow Him wherever He leads us…”
