Good Friday (and every day really) we should reflect on the sacrifice that Christ made on our behalf, but instead of being somber, we should celebrate. Because of Christ’s death, we can have new life. As Charles Spurgeon said, “The memorial of Christ’s death is a festival, not a funeral.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a powerful and effective English Baptist preacher, faced the same modern mega-Church and Church growth proposals advocated today.
The current condition of the Church requires an accurate, Biblical definition of revival. The many fallacies of revival cause confusion within the Church.
Shane Vander Hart: God calls us to live our lives in such a way that we are salt and light to the watching public. No closet, private, Christianity allowed.
In 1854, Charles H. Spurgeon preached a Christmas Eve service at New Park Street Chapel in Southwark, London expounding on the word Immanuel: “God With Us.”
Charles Spurgeon would reject the notion that our faith is private and not public. We were meant to be salt and light in the public square.
…do what Charles Spurgeon did. I’ve been reading slowly through Spurgeon’s autobiography this year and find myself about 3/4 of the way through Volume 1: The Early Years. When CHS first arrived in London to pastor the New Park Street Chapel, he made quite a splash right away. A church, designed to hold 1,200 was […]
Charles Spurgeon commenting on Acts 14:22, specifically where is says, “through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God,” (ESV) said something that most American Christians don’t want to hear – you will suffer. Yet you walk through your typical Christian bookstore you will invariably see books with titles that proclaim the opposite. From […]
Another great passage from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening Devotional: By the words "to save" we understand the whole of the great work of salvation, from the first holy desire onward to complete sanctification. The words are multum in parro: indeed, here is all mercy in one word. Christ is not only "mighty to save" […]
British pastor Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) proclaimed that in his book Joy in Christ’s Presence that we should never tire of being in Christ’s presence and that if we draw near to Him he will draw near to you. “You have visited me by night.” Psalm 17:3 Now, you may be saying to yourself, ‘I […]
This post’s title describes, in my opinion, what we see in much of “progressive” Christianity or the religious left if you will. So I wanted to share the passage below from the great British Pastor Charles Spurgeon who it would seem was writing for our day, don’t you think? I cannot endure false doctrine, however […]
This is my prayer as well. Lord, let me find my life in thee, and not in the mire of this world’s favor or gain. – Charles Spurgeon Technorati Tags: Charles Spurgeon,Quotes,Prayer
It is hard to believe that Christmas is upon us already. The year has gone by so quickly. It looks like here in Iowa it will be a white Christmas. I can’t say that really excites me, but my kids love it. Since we home school, our kids will do some school work and then […]
From Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening Devotional: A man may have too much money, or too much honour, but he cannot have too much grace. When Jeshurun waxed fat in the flesh, he kicked against God, but there is no fear of a man’s becoming too full of grace: a plethora of grace is impossible. More […]
From part of my quiet time readings this morning. This quote is taken from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening Devotional. Let us, by the aid of the gracious Comforter, shake off those doubts and fears which so much mar our peace and comfort. Be this our prayer, that we may have done with the harsh […]
