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.”
When David wrote these words, he was not in a condition of ease and luxury. He was not even in a position of assured safety. You know what we mean when we say that a man carries his life in his hand; that is to say, he expects death, he is in imminent peril, and may at any moment be cut off from his fellow men.
May you feel that, to be out of sync with God, to wish to be separated from him, and to have other interests than those of him who made you, must be dangerous, and probably will be fatal! Come to yourself at this earliest stage of your history, and love and rejoice in God as the prodigal returned to his father!
Our Saviour was very gentle with those who had real difficulties. He would reason with them over and over again; he would state a truth, and restate it; or he would enlarge and expand it, for he was gentle with seeking souls as a mother is with her child.
Those were troublesome times in which Jude wrote this very forcible Epistle. The first early days of Christianity, with all the spring-time of the singing of birds and the blossoming of flowers, had passed away. There had come times of trial for everyone; but worst of all were the troubles within the church.
There are some people who are not saved, though we should have expected that they would have been converted long ago. Our text explains the reason, so, without any preface, let us come to it at once.
I think, indeed, I am sure that there are many of us who have passed through our spiritual winter. We have also had our spring, we are even coming to our summer, and there are some whose ripe and mellow experience has the peacefulness of autumn about it.
It is from heaven that this voice comes; it is the voice of the Father himself who speaks; and what the voice says is worthy to be treasured in the hearts of us all: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Unbelief is a great troubler. Our peace comes to us by faith; and if our faith grows weak, our peace of mind is apt to decline and we are likely to become much disturbed in spirit. If those who are believers, who have passed from death to life, are sometimes troubled, you may be sure that others are.
There is no one but Jesus for each one of us; there is no unique way for this man because of his righteous life, and no unique way for that person because of his ungodliness; but for the most moral and the most immoral there is the same Saviour, to be received by the same precious faith.
Would you become spiritually wise? Come and hear what the Spirit of God has to say by the mouth of the wise man.
People who are very happy, especially those who are very happy in the Lord, are not apt either to give offence or to take offence.
John was the herald of Christ; he was to prepare the way for the coming King, but from this text it appears that he was to do more than that.
May God the Holy Spirit help us all sweetly to meditate on him of whom the psalmist speaks here!
When Christ came to the chosen people, they were in a most miserable condition, and there was no hope for them at all apart from the promised Messiah.
Darkness stands for the powers of evil, as light is the fitting symbol of the holiness of God, and of his infinite goodness and purifying grace.
God has messengers nowadays; and he still sends by them short, sharp, urgent, stimulating messages like this, “Escape for your life.”
Why does God remember and prize so highly the early piety of his people, their first faith, their first love, their first zeal?
God in Moses seemed to overcome God out of Moses. God in the Mediator—the Man Christ Jesus—appears to be stronger for mercy than God apart from the Mediator.
Christ has already accomplished enough to keep his redeemed amazed throughout all eternity with the splendour of the achievements of his grace.
The life of the Christian here is the triumphant life that is to be enjoyed hereafter, it is one and the same life so far as its real nature is concerned.
It is good to go and mix with others, and openly worship God who delights to be worshipped like this.
To find love, you need to send a lover; one whose soul is full of love is the most likely to discover it.
though there is no rest to be found in earthly things, yet we may have rest even while here, rest which drops from above.
‘Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son.’ It is an unheard-of thing, it is a miraculous thing, and therefore it must be a Godlike thing.
