Remember, too, he is precious, because the only righteousness you have is still his perfect righteousness. That which pleads with God for you is not what you are, but what he is. You are accepted at this moment, but you are only accepted in the Beloved. You are not justified because you feel in a sweet frame of mind, or because your heart rejoices in the name of God. Oh, no! your acceptance is all in your great Surety, and if it could be possible that he and the entire system of his grace could be withdrawn, and covenant engagements abrogated, you would be as unacceptable as even lost spirits are, and would be like them for ever driven from the face and favour of God. Is he not, then, as your accepted Substitute, at this hour most precious to you?
It has been said that “Spurgeon was never topical but always textual.” In point of fact Charles Haddon Spurgeon frequently preached topical sermons, although in all cases he expounded a text of Scripture in the same sermon. It is hoped that this selection of striking and unusual sermons is circulated, some perhaps in similar unusual occasions (a court witness, one married to an unbeliever, a holiday-maker in a foreign land and so on) might be spoken to by God the Holy Spirit and be brought to the feet of Spurgeon’s Saviour.
Few people in history can be known by one name and have it ring true with their audience, and “Spurgeon” is one of them. Over time, Spurgeon has become known and revered as the “Prince of Preachers“. In the last 200 years he has been one of the most influential men for not only Preachers of the Gospel but for those who have not had the opportunity to hear and receive the Gospel message. He wrote tirelessly over his life, and WORDsearch Bible Software is committed to bring as many of Spurgeon’s works as possible to you in electronic form.
