I invite you to find some of his readings – – his books. He lived only 58 years but what a life it was!!!! He was and is known as the Prince of Preachers.
His sermons are alive and well and as you read some of them, you would think he was preaching today. Perhaps he is.
Two of his sayings are dynamite.
“If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Savior of men. If He be some thing He must be every thing and if He be not every thing, He is nothing to you.”
Here is another one that is few in words but heavy in depth.
“Only lovers of the Lord will hold out in the hour of trial. The rest will either sink or sulk or slink back to the world.”
Surgeon was born 8/19/1834 and his Coronation Day was 1/31/1892. If you want some good solid reading, choose some of his books, particularly the ones on Faith.
Well. My favorite right now does not come from his pen but from the Bible.
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
I like that! Trust in….Lean not….Acknowledge Him….and….He SHALL . Do you find any questions in that verse? Didn’t think so and they can’t be manufactured either.
I am so glad there is a Savior out there who cares about every detail of our lives and makes a difference therein.
Incidentally, you do not have to purchase any of Spurgeon’s sermons or books. You can pull him up online and choose any thing you like to read and become alive with a man who loved His Lord and gave his all while he had time on this earth. TREMENDOUS!!!
Excited in the Word!
