Pithy gems from Charles Spurgeon:
- It is better to preach five words of God’s Word–than five million words of man’s wisdom.
- Let us never think that we have learned a doctrine, until we have seen its fruit in our lives.
- A large part of the professing church is nothing better than the world, wrongfully named with Christ’s name.
- Anything that makes us pray is a blessing!
- It costs something to be a true Christian. It will cost us our sins, our self-righteousness, our ease and our worldliness!
- According to the men of the world–few are going to Hell. According to the Bible–few are going to Heaven.
- By affliction, Christ shows us our emptiness and weakness, draws us to the throne of grace, purifies our affections, weans us from the world, and makes us long for Heaven.
- Nothing is so offensive to Christ as lukewarmness in religion! “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth!” Revelation 3:16.
