Spurgeon Sermons


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.”

  • Sermon
    2459. Better Than Wine
    April 18, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2458. Reasons For An Exceptional Question
    April 17, 2018

    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.”

  • Sermon
    2457. Job’s Resignation
    April 16, 2018

    Job was very much troubled, and he did not try to hide the outward signs of his sorrow.

  • Sermon
    2456. The Lamb Our Leader
    April 13, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2455. A Cure For A Weak Heart
    April 12, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2454. The Secret Of Failure
    April 11, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2453. A Hard Case
    April 10, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2452. Hope For The Worst Backsliders
    April 9, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2451. “Blessed In Him”
    April 6, 2018

    “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.

  • Sermon
    2450. The Joy Of Redemption
    April 5, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2449. The Rule And Reward Of Serving Christ
    April 4, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2448. “Herein Is Love.”
    April 3, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2447. “God, And Not Man,”—What Does It Mean?
    April 2, 2018

    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.

  • Sermon
    2446. Carte-Blanche
    March 30, 2018

    I mean to dwell specifically on those words at the end of the verse, “Be it to you even as you wish”; but before we consider them, I should like to remind you again, as I did in the reading, that our Lord admired this woman’s faith. He said to her, “Oh woman, great is your faith.”

  • Sermon
    2445. The Last Sermon For The Year
    March 29, 2018

    Being the Lord’s children, and being saved, they become his servants, and as his servants they are under responsibility to God, and they will all have to give to him an account of their stewardship.

  • Sermon
    2444. Cheering Words
    March 28, 2018

    The Saviour was about to leave his disciples, and this was the hardest trial which they had ever experienced. Since there could be no trial to them like the loss of the Saviour’s presence, it was at this time Jesus gave them his richest consolation.

  • Sermon
    2443. The Determination Of Christ To Suffer For His People
    March 27, 2018

    I believe that, if our Saviour had not been the atoning sacrifice, if his sufferings had been merely those of a martyr, he would have quaffed to the very dregs the cup that was offered him, and would not have left any of it. The reason why he refused the cup, I think, is to be found in another thing altogether.

  • Sermon
    2442. “My Beloved Is Mine.”
    March 26, 2018

    This is a versicle from the Song of Songs, and I do not hesitate to say that it is the soul and heart of that divine composition. The bride dressed in her richest posey wears no jewel more precious than this diamond of full assured possession. There is poetry here which not one of the sons of music can excel.

  • Sermon
    2441. The Lord’s Knowledge, Our Safeguard
    March 23, 2018

    There are very narrow limits to our knowledge. There is a great breadth to our conceit; but the things that we really know are very few, after all. He who is wisest will be the first to confess his own ignorance. Our faith in the superior knowledge of God is a great source of comfort to us.

  • Sermon
    2440. Faithful Stewardship
    March 22, 2018

    It is good that our dear brethren should make a proper account of us. Paul says, in the verse preceding our text, “Let a man so account of us,” for there are some who make a wrong evaluation concerning the ministers of the gospel.

  • Sermon
    2439. Five Links In A Golden Chain
    March 21, 2018

    I want some of you to go back in thought to your early days when you were children in grace; indeed, go back even further than that, to the time of your spiritual birth, those first hours when your love for your Lord was true and fervent, and everything all around you was fresh and bright and joyful.

  • Sermon
    2438. “Two Immutable Things.”
    March 20, 2018

    I want some of you to go back in thought to your early days when you were children in grace; indeed, go back even further than that, to the time of your spiritual birth, those first hours when your love for your Lord was true and fervent, and everything all around you was fresh and bright and joyful.

  • Sermon
    2437. Prayer, The Proof Of Godliness
    March 19, 2018

    All men are not godly. Alas! the ungodly are the great majority of the human race. And all men who are to some extent godly are not equally godly. The man who fears God, and desires to truly know him, has some little measure of godliness.

  • Sermon
    2436. “How Good To Those Who Seek!”
    March 16, 2018

    It is the prophet Jeremiah, in his Book of Lamentations, who says to you who are seeking the Lord, “The Lord is good to the soul that seeks him.” You do not need to take any discount off his words of cheer. Depend on it, what he says is true.
