The works of Charles Spurgeon have inspired millions of Christians around the world for over a hundred years. His wisdom and insight into God’s Word and world have helped others discover the richness of Scripture. Answers in Genesis is pleased to present the text of a large collection of sermons from this 19th century “Prince of Preachers.”
If we should, with very much earnestness, urge believers to good works, let no one suppose that, therefore, we imagine that men are saved by works.
We think that a Christian man should “glory in tribulations also,” and rise superior to all outward afflictions; but it is not always so with us.
I must, surely, be speaking right into the heart of some who are feeling the crushing weight and heavy burden of their guilt.
Christ is best up there, but it is expedient for us and for God’s glory that we should remain here for a while.
Men may give all the wealth of their house, and form a marriage bond; the bond may be there, but not what will make it sweet to wear.
Our Saviour was always with his disciples until the time of his death. After his resurrection, he was with them often, but not always.
My subject on this occasion leads me to speak to those who are in personal trouble, and to say something concerning God’s gracious dealings towards them.
Many who do not receive Christ must give unreasonable reasons for their unreasonable conduct.
Since man is as light as vanity itself, Solomon urges that it is idle and vain for him to attempt to contend with God.
It is a very blessed habit of saints who have grown in grace to enter into actual conversation with the Well-Beloved.
There were a great many pretenders in the times of Jeremiah who prefaced their utterance with the same declaration, “Thus says the Lord.”
The scriptural emblem of wine, which is intended to be the symbol of the richest earthly joy, has become desecrated in the process of time by the sin of man.
The great Son of David knew that the man who cried to him, “Have mercy on me,” really meant by that plea, “Lord, give me my sight.”
Job was very much troubled, and he did not try to hide the outward signs of his sorrow.
This is characteristic of saints: “These are those who follow the Lamb wherever he goes.” This has always been the way of the saints; this is the way the holy prophets went, the way of the martyrs, the way of the reformers and confessors, the way of all who shall meet above around the throne of God and of the Lamb.
You perceive, dear friends, that David had trusted in the Lord; in very severe and exceptional trouble God had delivered him; and at the close of that deliverance he wrote this Psalm, to be sung by the faithful of all time and every clime, and then he gave this exhortation which grew out of his own experience.
It is no new thing that we should be made a laughing-stock to the enemies of the cross of Christ because we cannot even do what we have formerly done, and are beaten in the very field where previously we have achieved great and notable victories for our Master.
God spoke to us again and again; but we did not regard his voice. There are none so deaf as those who will not hear; and we were among those who would not hear even that voice to which heaven and earth attend, that voice which even the dead will one day hear, when those who hear shall live.
Sin is quite sure to cause sorrow; and the longer the sorrow is delayed, the heavier it will be when it comes. This ship may be long at sea, but it will come home at last with a terrible cargo. There was never a man who broke the law of God who did not have to rue it in the end.
“Men shall be blessed in him.” Oh sirs, if one had the tongues of men and of angels, and if one could only for once use that speech which it is not lawful for a man to utter, if we could even speak as never man yet spoke, we could not fully describe all the glories of him of whom this text speaks.
When the human mind is on the stretch of emotion, whether it is under the influence of grief or joy, it often thinks that the whole world is in sympathy with itself. It seems to wrap the mantle of the universe all around its spiritual nature as a garment.
You cannot have Christ if you will not serve him. If you take Christ, you must take him in all his characters, not only as Friend, but also as Master; and if you are to become his disciple, you must also become his servant. I hope that no one here kicks against that truth.
Seeing what love had done, and seeing how love comes back in return, I said within myself, when love has learned its way into one heart, it scatters its seed and multiplies in the hearts of hundreds more. Love fosters love; let it once begin, and no one can tell its end.
In a thousand respects, God is greater than man; but the Lord here puts this truth most prominently forward, that he is “God, and not man,” in that he is infinitely more forbearing, infinitely more tender, infinitely more ready to pass by offences than any man ever can be.
