PORTRAIT OF CHARLES SPURGEON

 

 

 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

1834-1892

BAPTIST PREACHER

LONDON, ENGLAND

SPURGEON WAS A BAPTIST PREACHER IN LONDON ENGLAN WHO AT THE AGE OF 20, FOUR YEARS AFTER HIS CONVERSION, BECAME THE PASTOR OF NEW PARK STREET CHUCH. HIS CONGREGATIONS QUICKLY ROSE IN NUMBERS AND HE WOULD PREACH TO LARGE AUDIENCES REACHING AS MANY AS  10,000. THIS WAS  BEFORE MICS AND SOUND EQUIPMENT. HE WAS A MAN WHO PRACTICED WHAT HE PREACHED, WROTE VOLUMES OF MATERIAL, AND  GAVE HIS LIFE AND HIS MONEY TO HELP OTHERS.  HE  IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE GREAT PREACHERS OF HISTORY.  HIS WORKS ARE STILL IN CIRCULATION AND GOD IS STILL USING HIM.

“The Bible is not the light of the world, it is the light of the Church. But the world does not read the Bible, the world reads Christians! “You are the light of the world.”

 

“Whatever a man depends upon, whatever rules his mind, whatever governs his affections, whatever is the chief object of his delight, is his god.”

 

“The Word of God is like a lion. You don’t have to defend a lion. All you have to do is let the lion loose, and the lion will defend
itself.”

 

“God does not need your strength: he has more than enough of power of his own. He asks your weakness: he has none of that Himself, and he is longing, therefore, to take your weakness, and use it as the instrument in his own mighty hand. Will you not yield your weakness to him, and receive his strength?”

 

“God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart. When you are so weak that you cannot do much more than cry, you coin diamonds with both your eyes. The sweetest prayers God ever hears are the groans and sighs of those who have no
hope in anything but his love.”

 

“Death is no punishment to the believer: it is the gate of endless joy.”

 

“Great hearts can only be made by great troubles. Great faith must have great trials.”

 

“You will never glory in God till first of all God has killed your glorying in yourself.”

 

“The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.”

“Satan always hates Christian fellowship; it is his policy to keep Christians apart. Anything which can divide saints from one another he delights in. He attaches far more importance to godly intercourse than we do. Since union is strength, he does his best to promote separation.”

 

“A person who is really saved by Grace does not need to be told that he is under solemn obligations to serve Christ. The new life within him tells him that. Instead of regarding it as a burden, he gladly surrenders himself, body, soul, and spirit, to the Lord.”

 

“Time is short. Eternity is long. It is only reasonable that this short life be lived in the light of eternity.”

 

“You and I cannot be useful if we want to be sweet as honey in the mouths of men. God will never bless us if we wish to please men, that they may think well of us. Are you willing to tell them what will break your own heart in the telling and break theirs in the hearing? If not, you are not fit to serve the Lord. You must be willing to go and speak for God, though you will be rejected.”

“You will never glory in God till first of all God has killed your glorying in yourself.”

 

“God has so made man’s heart that nothing can ever fill it but God himself.”

 

“The best way to live above all fear of death is to die every morning before you leave your bedroom.”

 

“There must be a divorce between you and sin, or there can be no marriage between you and Christ.”

 

“When your will is God’s will, you will have your will.”

 

SPURGEON PREACHER LONDON

“Right is right though all condemn, and wrong is wrong though all approve.”

 

“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.”

 

“Whatever is your greatest joy and treasure, that is your god.”

 

“Hold everything earthly with a loose hand, but grasp eternal things with a death-like grip”

 

“It is not your hold of Christ that saves you, but His hold of you.”

 

CHARLES SPURGEON

“I believe that one reason why the church of God at this present moment has so little influence over the world is because the world has so much influence over the church.”
