Morning and Evening: an update

We are closing in on the end of our first month releasing audio recordings of the Morning and Evening devotional through Theology Mix.  I wanted to thank Ryan Jackson, Len Flack and Cody Almanzar for being a part of creating these, and I am excited to see this through to the end of the book.  I’d also like to thank Jeremy Lundmark for bringing Spurgeon Audio into the ThM fold and encouraging me as I’ve pursued production of this podcast.

I think I wasn’t quite prepared at first for the scope of a project this size, even if each episode is only a couple minutes long.  But I am glad that it has gone so smoothly to date and I am hopeful that this has a positive impact on listeners.  If you have listened and enjoyed, please share them with your friends and family.  I am planning to keep these available for free download indefinitely.

If you are subscribed to the Spurgeon Audio RSS feed and wonder why you aren’t getting these twice-daily updates, it’s because they aren’t coming through that feed.  You should make sure you subscribe to Theology Mix through iTunes or your favorite podcast catcher, and you will be able to receive these daily, in addition to being able to follow several other excellent podcasts as well.

You can listen to and read all the Morning and Evening episodes released to date here, and don’t forget to follow Spurgeon Audio on Facebook and Twitter.  If there are sermons you’d like to hear recorded, email me and we will add them to our list for the future.

Official announcement: Morning and Evening!

Ever since this podcast started, probably the biggest question Jon and I have fielded is “Will you record the Morning and Evening devotionals?”  And to be honest, that was the idea that prompted the creation of this podcast, but a day by day release of the devotional was a little outside my technical ability and budget.

Now though: thanks to the assistance of the Theology Mix network and three fellow podcasters, this wish from so many will be a reality!  You may remember Ryan Jackson from our heaven double-feature, and I will also be joined by Len Flack of Renewal Media and North Country Fellowship Church, and Cody Almanzar of The Ordinary Pastor podcast.

This will be kicking off next month, and will be exclusive to the Theology Mix podcast network.  If you haven’t subscribed to the TM RSS feed yet, this is a great reason to do so.  I will post more once we are about to begin posting, but right now the plan is to begin releasing on August 1.  Bookmark it!

Morning and Evening – Good Friday

Happy Good Friday to all those who have begun to follow this podcast as we slowly figure out what exactly we’re doing here.  Today is a day to celebrate the death of death, and the payment made in full for our sins by the Lord Jesus Christ!  We will be releasing Episode 4 very soon.  In the meantime, I present this morning’s entry from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening devotional:

April 3 – Morning

They took Jesus, and led him away.
John 19:16

He had been all night in agony, he had spent the early morning at the hall of Caiaphas, he had been hurried from Caiaphas to Pilate, from Pilate to Herod, and from Herod back again to Pilate; he had, therefore, but little strength left, and yet neither refreshment nor rest were permitted him.  They were eager for his blood, and therefore led him out to die, loaded with the cross.  O dolorous procession!  Well may Salem’s daughters weep.  My soul, do thou weep also.

What learn we here as we see our blessed Lord led forth?  Do we not perceive that truth which was set forth in shadow by the scapegoat?  Did not the high-priest bring the scapegoat, and put both his hands upon its head, confessing the sins of the people, that thus those sins might be laid upon the goat, and cease from the people?  Then the goat was led away by a fit man into the wilderness, and it carried away the sins of the people, tso that if they were sought for they could not be found.  Now we see Jesus brought before the priests and rulers, who pronounce him guilty; God himself imputes our sins to him, The Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all; He was made sin for us; and, as the substitute for our guilt, bearing our sin upon his shoulders, represented by the cross; we see the great Scapegoat led away by the appointed officers of justice.  Beloved, can you feel assured that he carried your sin?  As you look at the cross upon his shoulders, does it represent your sin?  There is one way by which you can tell whether he carried your sin or not.  Have you laid your hand upon his head, confessed your sin, and trusted in him?  Then your sin lies not on you; it has all been transferred by blessed imputation to Christ, and he bears it on his shoulder as a load heavier than the cross.

Let not the picture vanish till you have rejoiced in your own deliverance, and adored the loving Redeemer upon whom your iniquities were laid.
