A Simple Sound Check and the Power of Christ

Charles Spurgeon

In We Shall See God, I share a remarkable story that Spurgeon told about an experience early in his ministry:

In 1857, a day or two before preaching at the Crystal Palace, I went to decide where the platform should be fixed; and, in order to test the acoustic properties of the building, cried in a loud voice, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

The Tyranny of the UrgentIn Charles Hummel’s booklet Tyranny of the Urgent, which I read as a young Christian thirty-five years ago, he said that what is urgent is often not important, and what is important is typically not urgent.

The Eyes of Faith

Eye of faithWhen we view life through the eyes of faith, we can say, “Things appear one way, but my God is sovereign, loving, merciful, and kind. Through his grace and empowerment, I will cling to him."

Spurgeon: “Man fashions for himself a god after his own liking”

SpurgeonCharles Spurgeon has a remarkable way of getting to the heart of things. The more modern evangelical books I read, the more I feel the need to go back to Spurgeon and see him cut through the fog and get to the true business of following Jesus.

Let Us Be As Daniel

I appreciated this passage from a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled "Daniel Facing the Lions' Den."

Daniel in the Lions' DenAct on the outset as a Christian should. What if employers should frown, or customers be vexed, or friends fail? Bear it! It will be the best policy in the long run.

Charles Spurgeon Meets Shai Linne

Spurgeon and Shai LinneRapper Shai Linne has produced a masterful musical biography of Spurgeon. I love it, and I love that people from different countries and different times and with different styles of communicating can be one in Christ and elevate the Word of God.

 

Spurgeon on God’s Power in Our Lives

Charles Spurgeon

I’ve said before that one of my delights is exploring the vast reservoir of sermons by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. I came across one called “The Mighty Arm.” In this portion of the message, which is about one fifth of the whole, he talks about the power of God available to us as Christians, which we are free to call upon.

We Shall See God on audio

Randy AlcornI have seldom so much enjoyed putting a book together as I did We Shall See God. (See my previous post for more on Spurgeon and why I decided to compile the book.)

We Shall See God: Spurgeon’s Devotional Thoughts on Heaven

Charles SpurgeonCharles Haddon Spurgeon preached to perhaps ten million people in his lifetime, often speaking ten times a week at various locations, including congregations his own church had planted.

A Man from Heaven: How would he spend his money?

Charles SpurgeonRecently I was working on a book project that involved my reading through messages Charles Spurgeon preached on Heaven. I was delighted to come across a passage in which he affirms some of the same teachings I lay out in my books The Treasure Principle and Money, Possessions and Eternity. While writing those books years ago, had I been aware that Spurgeon had said what follows, I certainly would have quoted from him!
