Taking my eye off Christ

"While I can believe the promise of God, because it is His promise, and because he is my God, and while I can trust my Saviour because He is God, and therefore mighty to save, all goes well with me, but I do find, when I begin questioning myself about this and that perplexity, thus taking my eye off Christ, that all the virtue of my life seems oozing out at every pore.

Any practice that detracts from faith is an evil practice, but especially that kind of self-examination which would take us away from the cross-foot, proceeds in a wrong direction.”


- Charles Spurgeon, The Full Harvest (p 104)
