Our Lord's Voluntary Poverty by Charles Spurgeon
“Christ was emphatically chosen out of the people. He was with them in all their toils and all their woes—so with them that none of them were more poor than He. “Foxes have holes,” He said, “and the birds of the air have nests, but I, the Son of Man, have not where to lay My head.” He was so poor that I never read He left a will about His worldly goods and chattels. All that He had of personal estate was just the garments He wore and those the soldiers parted among them—and there He was, naked, dead and indebted to charity! For a tomb, He had not even a sepulcher of His own—not a sorry six feet of earth in which His sleeping body might have rested in its own freehold—it was a borrowed tomb that gave the Savior a refuge.” Charles Spurgeon
Spiritual Peace by C. H. SPURGEON
Our Lord was now about to die, to depart from this world and to ascend to his Father; he therefore makes his will; and this is the blessed legacy which he leaves to the faithful–“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.” We may rest well assured that this testament of our Lord Jesus Christ is valid. You have here his own signature; it is signed, sealed, and delivered in the presence of the eleven apostles, who are faithful and true witnesses.
The Water of Life by C.H. SPURGEON
You will remember that our Savior had been speaking to the woman of Samaria concerning living water. He had endeavored to catch her attention by using a metaphor to her work and her position. Water was uppermost in her thoughts and Jesus sanctified the element to His own gracious end. Sitting at the well’s mouth, I think I can see His earnest face and note the woman’s wondering eyes while He talked to her as she had never been spoken to before concerning water which caused a man never to thirst again.
C. H. Spurgeon :: The Immutability of God
Spurgeon invites us to "plunge yourself in the Godhead’s deepest sea; be lost in his immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest, refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can so comfort the soul; so calm the swelling billows of grief and sorrow; so speak peace to the winds of trial, as a devout musing upon the subject of the Godhead."
J.C. Ryle “Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots”
The most pertinent question to ask is this: “Are you holy?” Listen, I pray you, to the question I put to you this day. Do you know anything of the holiness of which I have been speaking? I do not ask whether you attend your church regularly, whether you have been baptized and received the Lord’s Supper, whether you have the name of Christian. I ask something more than all this: are you holy, or are you not?
The Good Samaritan – Why the priest and the Levite didn’t stop.
"I've Been to the Mountaintop" is the popular name of the last speech delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. King spoke on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee. On the following day, King was assassinated. This is an excerpt from that speech.
Inspiration by J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)
How was the Bible written?-“Whence is it? From heaven, or of men?”-Had the writers of the Bible any special or peculiar help in doing their work?-Is there anything in the Bible which makes it unlike all other books, and therefore demands our respectful attention? These are questions of vast importance. They are questions to which I wish to offer an answer in this paper. To speak plainly, the subject I propose to examine is that deep one, the inspiration of Scripture.
The Scriptures by Thomas Watson
The Word of God, which is contained in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him. 2 Timothy 3:16. "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,". By Scripture is understood the sacred Book of God. It is given by divine inspiration; that is, the Scripture is not the contrivance of man’s brain, but is divine in its origin.
“IT IS FINISHED!” – John 19:30 by Charles Spurgeon
MY brothers and sisters, I would have you attentively observe the singular clearness, power, and quickness of the Savior’s mind in the last agonies of death. When pains and groans attend the last hour, they frequently have the effect of discomposing the mind, so that it is not possible for the dying man to collect his thoughts, or having collected them, to utter them so that they can be understood by others. But the Redeemer’s last acts were full of wisdom and prudence, although His sufferings were excruciating beyond all measure!
True Saints, when Absent from the Body, Are Present with the Lord by Jonathan Edwards
The apostle Paul informs the Christian Corinthians that he firmly believed the promises that Christ had made to his faithful servants of a glorious future eternal reward, and knew that present afflictions were light, and but for a moment, in comparison of that far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
