Great Sermon! This is the most popular of all C.H. Spurgeon's messages in this site. Rightly so, because this is an inspiring message that motivates us to excell. The text tells us that if we are unstable as water, we will never excell. We always admire and greatly respect people who are firm and consistent in their daily walk. But most often, we ourselves are unstable. Sometimes, we have strong faith and other times, we loose sight of the Savior's will for our lives. We are unstable in our love, we are unstable in our business, we are unstable in our doctrine. Our instability can ruin our usefulness. We must therefore overcome our instability. The preacher encourages us to know what is right and to defend what is right. We must know what God wants us to do and then do it. Only in Christ can we be stable. Hear this motivating message and move forward to stability and firmness in your Christian walk.
Great Sermon! We are rich in Christ. There are many Christians who have not actually come to the realization and full appreciation of their vast spiritual wealth of inheritance kept in heaven for all who belong to Him. But this text from Eph. 1:13,14 assures us that the Holy Spirit is the earnest or pledge of such an inheritance. Whoever therefore possess the Holy Spirit from God has a foretaste of heaven. This message reveals to us in brief what heaven is all about. Listen then and begin to thank God for the Holy Spirit that He has given to us. Surely, we are sons and daughters of God. Praise Him.
Great Sermon! I call myself a prayer warrior and yet this sermon humbled me and brought me to a new place of awe in God and the mighty power of prayer he gave to us for the purpose of being prosperous in his kingdom and being in relatinship with him for his glory. Thank-you for sharpening my weapon.!!
Great Sermon! This message compares the horrible position of man without God to the blessed hope that we now have in Christ Jesus. Originally, every person who rejects Christ is legally, spiritually and eternally dead in sin. He cannot stand before God in his own morality. He has no life in his own. But now that we are in Christ Jesus, we discover the legal, spiritual and eternal life for those who believe. In Christ, we are now delivered from sin and death. We are also blessed beyond compare for all eternity. Listen to this sermon and have a full appreciation of your new life in Christ. C.H. Spurgeon explains the way of salvation very clearly.
Great Sermon! The Scripture teaches us two significant truths that ought to be considered carefully in our doctrinal position. That God predestines and that man is responsible for all his actions. That God is presiding over all according to His sovereign grace and yet, man can act as he pleases. This is true in all of man's standing before God from salvation to glorification. Most often we are guilty of over emphasizing one side and neglecting the other. This message therefore is a fitting reminder to be all the more true to our Christian heritage. Listen and be blessed.
Great Sermon! It is an awful thing for people to reject Christ as the Savior for in doing so, they have put upon themselves their future condemnation. They are like vessels of pleasures and vessels of pride prepared for the wrath of God's coming judgment. It will be a dreadful and terrible thing indeed for God to overflow His anger upon such people. May the Lord re-fashion us to be vessels of mercy fit for the Master's use and for His glory. Listen now to this great preaching and as you do, pray that the Lord will bring you closer to the kingdom of God and under His divine sovereignty.
Relevant Sermon! The confederated forces of Romanism, neo-paganism, Freemasonry, and Jewish Cabalah all derive this practice from the same superstitions of ancient BABYLON--are establishing their anti-Christian Deism (Judeo-Masonry) as the world religion, its chief "holy-day" being named Christmas, while they claim "under God"!
It is the religious worship of Egypt, Babylon, both pagan and Papal Rome, the dissenter-persecuting Church of England (until Cromwell's puritans abolished it) and now the official "holiday" of the United States--the religious Mark of tyrannical governments, MYSTERY BABYLON!
What is unconstitutionally "established" a federal "holiday" for the pro-Christmas sects and denominations is precisely what our Christian forefather's resisted and fought against:
"A broad element of English Christianity still considered Christmas
celebration a pagan blasphemy. The Puritans, [Pilgrims], Baptists, Quakers,
Presbyterians, Calvinists and other denominations brought this opposition to
early New England and strong opposition to the holiday lasted in America
until the middle of the 18th century."

How apostasy is the road to tyranny, and today's "established churches" again support it!
Great Sermon! It is a sad truth that Christ has not been the subject in most of the preaching in many Christian churches nowadays. We have not been true in putting Christ the center of all our worship. That is why C.H. Spurgeon emphasizes the necessity of preaching a personal, practical and experiential Christ in all of our lives. Christ should be the substance of our preaching and not just the shadow. Listen to this first message he preached in the Metropolitan Tabernacle making his pulpit ministry clear in its direction to all of his hearers. Indeed, Jesus is worthy to receive glory and honor in our ministry.
Great Sermon! Many times we despair and think that God does not love us any more. But that is not true. Many waters cannot quench neither floods drown God's love for us. This is the Shulamite's Choice prayer. May this be our prayer as well. Christ's love rises higher and higher. Floods may try to rise it but His love will still be there. Hear this message and receive God's love for all eternity.
Great Sermon! Christ is the same ever since yet believers never see it that way. All Christians know Christ but they don't know him in the same capacity. It is a great joy to know Him better. We must know Him not just as a great teacher but a Savior and a friend who speaks to us like a brother. Blessed is he who could say in his heart, "May Christ be formed in me, the hope of glory." Our desire therefore is to know Him more and more. There should be an intense longing to see Christ. That is why this is a great teaching that unveils the Christ of Patmos in a glorified state. For what we know Christ now, we shall be in the future. Listen to this message and be blessed indeed.
Great Sermon! In a world where there is turmoil, war and confusion, it is important to hear about the Spiritual Peace found in Christ alone. The preacher talks about the legacy of Christ that has brought us peace with God and consequently peace with our own conscience. Listen to this preaching and you will greatly appreciate the forgiveness that God gives us. Indeed, peace and joy will definitely reign in the hearts of those who believe.
Great Sermon! It is a sad truth that in every Christian church, there are people who have a name but are spiritually dead. The church has lost her zeal and her energy. There seems to be little distinction these days between the Christians and the world. That is why this message from the book of Revelation regarding the church at Sardis is a solemn warning for all the churches not to defile our garments. The preacher makes a good point. Listen and be blessed. It is time to be zealous again for God's glory.
Great Sermon! The Christian's duty is to praise God and to bless His name forever. This is what the preacher emphasized in this message. When we neglect this, our faith can fail us. Listen to this message and be encouraged to rediscover the secret of praise to grow our faith. May our tounges be touched by rejoicing in God's glory. Bless His name.

Great Sermon! This is a great sermon regarding the mystery of the new birth brought about by the Holy Spirit for those who believe. We are partekers of the divine nature by the new birth as well as partakers of the sinful nature by the old birth. But in Christ Jesus, new life is
communicated to us from God. What a blessed hope beyond compare.
The Truth! The blood cleans us from every sin.
So the devil had no right for me and you, if we stand at the bottom of the cross of calvary! and look to HIM!
I know that my ego is nailed on the cross with HIM!
Wonderful sermon ! Great preacher !
Oh ! where are such men, who preach with the authority and power of God ?
God may bless you !
AWESOME, AWESOME Sermon! Let the wonderful truth of Jesus fill you! Listen to wonderful reading of Spurgeon. Here is merely a small, small portion of what he says here: "Could I speak to you without my lips and with my heart, then would I bid you seek that sprinkled blood and urge you by the love of your own soul, by everything that is sacred and eternal, to labor to get this blood of Jesus sprinkled on our soul. It is the blood sprinkled that saves a sinner.
But when the Christian gets the blook sprinkled, that is not all he wants. He wants something to feed on. And, oh, sweet God.
Jesus Christ is not only a savior for sinners. But he is food for them after they are saved. The paschal lamb by faith we eat. We live on it! You may tell my hearers whether you have the blood sprinkled by this: do you eat the lamb? ("Except you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no life in you," Jesus said.) Excellent exposition, too, of the Old Testament!! It is blood, blood, blood that saves. Not blood mixed with water (i.e. our weak works) that save, but blood, blood, blood. Christ our Passover is sacrified for us! This sermon was originally preached on Dec. 2 1865. (I thank the pastor who read it into a recording and posted it here!)
