Free Friday! Till He Come

free_friday_med

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $4.95, is Till He Come by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Click here to download.

The process of destroying follies is more hopefully performed at Jesus’ feet than anywhere else. Oh, that the Lord would come again to us as at the first, and like a consuming fire discover and destroy the dross which now alloys our gold! The word visit brings to us who travel the remembrance of the government officer who searches our baggage; thus doth the Lord seek out our secret things. But it also reminds us of the visits of the physician, who not only finds out our maladies, but also removes them. Thus did the Lord Jesus visit us at the first.

Come back to where it all started with the Prince of Preachers. When Charles Haddon Spurgeon spoke at communion meetings they were often times of great solemnity, and sometimes times of rejoicing, but always times when God’s presence was at work in the hearts of the assembled congregation.

You too may have felt the thrill of God moving in your heart or had the experience of meeting with him at a time of worship. You can thrill to such times again as you read this collection of the addresses Spurgeon gave at the Lord’s Supper.

Spurgeon was not only a great orator but he was also a man with a warm pastoral heart. To him the times together around the Lord’s Table were times when both features of his ministry came together in rejoicing to urge the congregation to think once more about the great event they were celebrating. This comes through just as clearly to the reader today as it must have done to the hearer then. If you feel that you need to be re-grounded in the meaning of your faith then Till He Come will be a blessing to you.

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.

Free Friday! The Way to God

free_friday_med

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $7.95, is The Way to God by Dwight Lyman Moody. Click here to download.

I believe the reason why a great many people think God does not love them is because they are measuring God by their own small rule, from their own standpoint. We love men as long as we consider them worthy of our love; when they are not we cast them off. It is not so with God. There is a vast difference between human love and Divine love.

The Way to God is a collection of sermons illustrating the simplicity of salvation. Moody doesn’t use heavy philosophy, but simply shows how God does not mean for salvation to be a deep, complicated subject man could not understand. Published in 1884, this book had sold 435,000 copies by 1900.

Dwight L. Moody was born at Northfield, Mass. on Feb. 5, 1837. Moody was an American evangelist and publisher who founded the Moody Church, Northfield School, the Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts, the Moody Bible Institute and Moody Publishers.

He may well have been the greatest evangelist of all time. In a 40-year period he won one million souls, founded three Christian schools, launched a great Christian publishing business, established a world-renowned Christian conference center, and inspired literally thousands of preachers to win souls and conduct revivals.

A pastor once joked about what he is paid to do.

He said he is not paid to preach because that is what he loves and is gifted to do.

He said he is not paid to minister to people because God called him and put that heart within him.
