“The way I finish a sermon” by Charles Spurgeon

Tolle Lege

“Man! Thou art lost and ruined by the fall, but there is One that is able to save, even to the uttermost, those that come to Him. To come to Christ is to trust Him.

I have preached this Gospel for many years, and I do not think I ever finished a sermon except in one way—by trying to explain what is meant by this simple trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.”

–Charles H. Spurgeon, “Preventing Grace” in The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Sermons, vol. 51 (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1905), 105. Spurgeon preached this sermon on 1 Samuel 25:32-33 in 1862.

These are days when we need men of principle…

“These are days when we need men of principle, men who can put their foot down and keep it down, men who cannot be turned aside. They call this firmness, ‘bigotry.’ It is, however, only another name for Christian manliness! If you dare to do right and face a frowning world, you shall have God’s commendation, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ ” (Mat 25:21, 23).

– Charles H. Spurgeon.
