Randy Alcorn's Blog: sermon

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.

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.

Charles Spurgeon Praising the Divine Architect

C.  H. SpurgeonCharles Spurgeon preached to something like ten million people in his lifetime, sometimes speaking ten times a week at various locations. His sermons were transcribed as he spoke. In those days of telegraph, his messages became available across the Atlantic, in America, within days, and around the world within a week. Besides his amazing quantity of sermons, he wrote an autobiography, the massive The Treasury of David, 3 Volumes  on the psalms, books on prayer, the classic devotional Morning and Evening, and produced a magazine, The Sword and the Trowel. Some argue that no author in history has more material in print than Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Oak Hills Church and Texas Trip

Randy Alcorn at Oak Hills ChurchNanci and I had a wonderful time last weekend with the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio. What a wonderful church family, with great Christ-centered worship. I spoke to them about “Heaven: Where God Will Bring Good out of Bad”, drawing most of the message from Romans 8, and focusing on verse 28, “In all things God works for the good of those who love Him,” or “All things work together for good to those who love God.”

Spurgeon's Worst Sermon

C. H. SpurgeonIt is often difficult to confirm the accuracy of a story, including this one printed in the Christian Digest and cited in a collection of stories assembled by Paul Tan. It wouldn’t surprise me to find it is accurate, but in any case the point of the story is a valid one, and I have seen it illustrated in less dramatic ways in my own life and in the speaking ministries of others.

Resting and Wrestling

restingI was listening to a John Piper message on Hebrews 12, titled "The Painful Discipline of Our Heavenly Father," and appreciated this introduction, so I’m sharing it with you. I really enjoy John’s messages, and highly recommend that you download them, and put on an iPod or listen to in the car and on planes, or as you do housework or tinker in the garage.
