Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for September 3

"Thou whom my soul loveth." - Song of Solomon 1:7 It is well to be able, without any "if" or "but," to say of the Lord Jesus-"Thou whom my soul loveth."

Renewing

Renewing - This word comes from ana (again) and kainoo (to make new). Anakainosei. To be remade completely. This is not remodeling. God doesn't take the old stuff and change a little of it.
