This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few days ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is Galatians 1:8.  Here’s my translation:

 ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐὰν ἡμεῖς ἢ ἄγγελος ἐξ οὐρανοῦ εὐαγγελίζηται ὑμῖν
But if we or an angel from heaven evangelizes to you

παρʼ ὃ εὐηγγελισάμεθα ὑμῖν ἀνάθεμα ἔστω
against the gospel to you let them be accursed

Here are some observations:

The Danger of Comparison

Selected Scriptures


Establish the need: Have you recently been shackled and miserable in comparing yourself to others?

Charles H. Spurgeon. The Secret of Power in Prayer.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, July 17th 2016. 22 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

This booklet is based upon a sermon delivered by the Prince of Preacher, Charles Spurgeon on the topic of prayer.  I was looking for a short devotional work to encourage my prayer life and this certainly encouraged me to appreciate the privilege of praying to God.  This work is based upon the verse John 15:7.  John 15:7 in the NASB states, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  Although Spurgeon preached this message back in 1888 it is relevant even for today, which is a testimony of Spurgeon’s faithful preaching of the Bible, which of course is always relevant for our spiritual life.
