Enabling Grace – Charles Spurgeon

Enabling Grace – Charles Spurgeon

Grace makes us the servants of God while still we are the servants of men: it enables us to do the business of heaven while we are attending to the business of earth: It sanctifies the common duties of life by showing us how to perform them in the light of heaven.

– Charles Spurgeon –
from Council for Christian Workers

Do this if you want be holy – Charles Spurgeon

Do this if you want be holy – Charles Spurgeon

If you think you can walk in holiness without keeping up perpetual fellowship with Christ, you have made a great mistake. If you would be holy, you must live close to Jesus.

The riddle of the Christian life – Charles Spurgeon

The riddle of the Christian life – Charles Spurgeon

The Christian’s life is a matchless riddle. No worldling can understand it. Dead, yet alive! Crucified with Christ, and yet at the same time Risen with Christ in newness of life! Union with the suffering, bleeding Saviour, and death to the world and sin, are soul-cheering things. O for more enjoyment of them.

Faith is Good for Everything – Charles Spurgeon

Faith is Good for Everything – Charles Spurgeon

(Faith) is good for everything—good for the timid to make them strong, good for the rash to make them wise; it is good for those who are desponding to make them brave, and good for those who are too daring, to make them discreet. There is no respect in which faith is not useful to us, therefore, whatever you leave out, see to your faith; if you forget all besides, be careful above all that ye take the shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16).

– Charles Spurgeon –
from the sermon “The Shield of Faith”, October 27,1861

Be Like Christ – Charles Spurgeon

Be Like Christ – Charles Spurgeon

O, there is nothing that can so advantage you, nothing can so prosper you, so assist you, so make you walk towards heaven rapidly, so keep your heads upwards toward the sky, and your eyes radiant with glory, like the imitation of Jesus Christ. It is when, by the power of the Holy Spirit, you are enabled to walk with Jesus in his very footsteps, and tread in his ways, you are most happy and you are most known to be sons and daughters of God. For your sake, Christ, I say, be like Christ. To draw him nearer to me, and myself nearer to him is the innermost longing of my soul.

Precision in Prayer – Charles Spurgeon

Precision in Prayer – Charles Spurgeon

There is a general kind of praying which fails for lack of precision. It’s as if a regiment of soldiers were to all fire off their weapons anywhere. Possibly somebody would be killed, but the majority of the enemy would be missed.
