Loud Braying Reveals An Ass

Charles Haddon Spurgeon: “Never talk of what you have done, but go on to something else. An officer rode up to his general, and said, “Sir, we have taken two guns from the enemy.” “It is well,” said the general, “take two more.” BA59 The Lord loves to use tools which are not rusted with […]

The Witness of the Spirit, Water and Blood

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. – I John 5:10 The only basis for saving faith is the testimony of God Himself concerning His Son Jesus […]

Hypocrites! Get Out of the Church!

I would say to you, members of this church, "Be holy!" Whatever you are, do seek to be holy. And if you will not be holy- if you have a mind to keep your sins- do us the favor to give up your profession. If you will have your sins, and go to hell, you […]

The Pursuit of Blessedness

The blessedness which is thus set before us we must aim at, but we must not think to obtain it without earnest effort…  The way of perfect obedience is not learned in a day; there must be precept upon precept, line upon line, and after efforts long enough to be compared with the 176 verses […]

Young, Restless & Reformed vs C.H. Spurgeon

  they have made no distinction between the holy and the common, neither have they caused men to discern between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. – Ezekiel 22:26 [Don’t miss the video below on Church growth. This is precisely what the […]


C.H. Spurgeon: “God Himself, at one time, seemed to be against us: the ten great cannon of His Law were turned against our walls; all heaven and earth mustered for battle; God Himself was against us, at least, so conscience reported from her look-out. But, now, at this moment, having believed in Jesus Christ, we […]

The World Our Parish

“Wherever there is found a man, there is the minister free to preach. The whole world is our parish, we know of no fetter upon our feet, and no gag upon our lips. Though kings should pass laws, the servants of Christ can bear the penalty, but they cannot disobey their Master, though the Emperor […]

Spurgeon on Consecration

Give your second best never. AM393 Let me be as the bullock which stands between the plough and the altar, to work or to be sacrificed; and let my motto be, “Ready for either.” ME14 Jesus gave both his hands to the nails, how can I keep back one of mine from His blessed work? […]

The Chief End of Man–to Please God His Maker

"Without faith it is impossible to please God."—Hebrews 11:6. Charles Spurgeon: “The chief end of man is "to please God;" for in so doing—we need not say it, because it is an undoubted fact—in so doing he will please himself. The chief end of man, we believe, in this life and in the next, is […]

The Snarky Side of Spurgeon

Does some mere professor sneeringly enquire, “What, are we always to live to God’s glory, and are we to do nothing but what would glorify him? This is laying down very straight rules, and making the road to heaven very narrow indeed.” Do you think so, friend? Then I will tell you plainly my solemn […]

Devote Yourself to Good Works

The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. – Titus 3:8 You are to do good works as zealously as if you were to be […]

Bible Recall

“You can recollect the sayings of great men, you treasure up verses of renowned poets; ought you not be equally profound in your knowledge of the words of God, so that you may be able to quote them readily when you would solve a difficulty or overthrow a doubt?” – C.H. Spurgeon

Spurgeon On Revival

We should have each doctrine of Scripture in its proper place, and preach it fully; and if we want to have a genuine revival of religion, we must preach these doctrines of Jehovah’s sovereign grace again and again. Do not tell me they will not bring revivals. There was but one revival that I have […]

The Best Way to Pray

Oh, my Brothers and Sisters, you will not do better, after all, than to quote Scripture, especially in prayer! There are no prayers so good as those that are full of the Word of God! May all our speech be flavored with texts! -C.H. Spurgeon, 1893, Sermon 2310

Do You Love The True?

He who does not hate the false does not love the true; and he to whom it is all the same whether it be God’s word or man’s, is himself unrenewed at heart.

Spurgeon On The Word ‘Baptism’

“I know not why it is that we yield to the superstitions of our Christian brethren, so much as to use the word baptize at all. It is not an English, but a Greek word. It has but one meaning, and cannot bear another. Throughout all the classics, without exception, it is not possible to […]
