Trembling Gates

“Beloved, if it had been possible to destroy the church of God on earth, it would havebeen destroyed long ago.” -Spurgeon

And the gates of hell quiver at her love and submission to His call. For they know she will prevail because every footstep in her humble sojourn on this ball through stormy gale and darkest night she walks behind her lover as he “kicks the darkness until it bleeds daylight.” Her faithful bridegroom knows this path too well. He walked down it to his cross and past those trembling gates of hell. His the greater suffering, his the grave, the scars– but oh, the lighter burden, unmeasured grace and glory… Ours!
