Belonging to Him means identifying with His people.

May 15, 2011

Has my Lord Jesus a visible church anywhere on earth?  Then let me share the lot of those who are its members!  What are its fortunes?  Let them be mine.  Is the church dishonored and despised, maligned and persecuted?  Then let me take the rough side of the hill with her — and bear the brunt of the storm with her rather than, in a cowardly manner, be ashamed of my Master and shrink from saying that I belong to Him.

(Charles Spurgeon, 1902)
