Very few religious writers, preachers, and evangelists today still stir the soul the same way C.H. Spurgeon was able to do so with his sermons. Yet even fewer are those who are able to do so and in humility still manage to say something like this:
“We say further, prefer the Scriptures even to all religious books. We say this of the best book, and sermons… … Read the Bible more, and do not care so much about us. If my sermons kept people from reading the Bible for themselves, I would like to see the whole stock in a blaze and burned to ashes’. But if they serve as finger-posts, pointing to the Scriptures and saying, ‘Read this, and this, and this;’ then I am thankful to have printed them.”
– C.H. Spurgeon
Below is a portion of one of his sermons, and the link to the rest of it, from which the text above was also taken from. It’s a sermon that was published in 1911 but was delivered in 1865! As the title indicates, this is a MUST-READ for every Christian, man, woman, child, and anybody who’s seeking for their joy to be truly full. And despite the Old English, please, please, please read it all the way through. I hope this touches you as much (or even more!) as it has influenced me deeply.
