Quotable Spurgeon

I realize that we do not worship preachers. However, God has clearly gifted some men in a special way. That giftedness, when used to articulate biblical truth, leads us to praise God. Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) is one such preacher. He had such a unique way of conveying the message of Scripture. Perhaps his preaching style and ability was simply a product of Victorian England. I think more than that, his clarity, power and wisdom were products of hours in the presence of God and rigorous study in the Word.

Here is an example of one brief yet compelling statement:

"In the red sea of His own blood, our Redeemer has drowned the Pharaoh of our sins."

Amen Preacher, Amen!
