Awesome Sermon! The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life are all at war against the Christian's soul. "O wretched man that I am who will deliver me from the body of this death". This is Paul's cry and this is the cry of every Christian who seeks to live a godly life in Christ Jesus. This is a wonderful study of Romans 7:24,25. We have all heard prosperity preachers, preaching their falsehood. There are those who preach that if we follow Christ, that we will have no trouble. Yet truth is preached in this sermon. The truth that when we walk with Christ, our old sin nature and our new nature of Christ, are at war with each other in our bodies. I would highly recommend this sermon! 1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.
Great Sermon! This sermon that c. H spurgeon preach set the course of plain wisdom, that men should not try and make God word out with such swelling words that are higher above those that listen. that men should be humble and use plain speech in addressing the mighty word of God thanks for this great sermon.
One of the best sermons This is really one of Spurgeon's sermon's which I really like a lot and has given me a lot of encouragement.. I have listened to it several times and still learn more when I listen again.. Even for first timers this is a very good one.. and its really an encouragement for christians who feel a bit down and discouraged.. "Limiting God" also is recommended
Exellent Sermon! I have listened to this sermon about 10 times and each time it has impacted me. "Vessels of Mercy" is on the top ten list of my favorite Spurgeon sermons along with "A Home Question", and "Indwelling Sin".
All christian need to listen to these sermons at least five times.
The voice of the Blood! Truly a great preacher! Spurgeon's life long theme..
‚ÄėE‚Äôer since by faith I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.‚Äô
‚ÄúI am forgiven! I am forgiven! A monument of grace! A sinner saved by blood!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúFor by grace are ye saved through faith‚Ä¶‚ÄĚ Eph. 2:8,9.
A great biography including his wonderful testimony of salvation:

Another sermon by Spurgeon can be found by searching online (Spurgeon sermon No 2043. The Blood of the Lamb the Conquering Weapon. Revelation 12:11)
‚Äú Brethren, the blood of Jesus Christ, God‚Äôs dear Son, cleanseth us from all sin (I John 1:6-10). Jesus has borne the penalty due to us: he has discharged for us upon the cross all our liabilities to the justice of God, and we are free for ever, because our Surety suffered in our place. Where is the accuser now? That dragon voice is silenced by the blood of the lamb. Nothing else can ever silence the accuser‚Äôs cruel voice (i.e. the Devil who deceives the whole world Revelation: 12:9; II Corinthians 11: 3,4,13-15 etc) but the voice of the blood which tells of the infinite God accepting, in our behalf, the sacrifice which he himself supplied.‚ÄĚ
Great Sermon! There are plenty of other resons not to celebrate Christmas other than the fact that it is steeped in Roman Catholicism.
As far as your comment about the names of the months, we are not really celebrating those. I think that is not a good comparison although if I had the power to change the names I would.
Try not celebrating Christmas and see what the response of fellow believers is. Do we have the freedom not to celebrate without being ostracized.(Romans 14).
Much could be said here about the biblical feasts, seeing how they all point to Jesus and his death, burial, and ressurection and His imminent return. Do we have the freedom to celebrate these days or is that legalism?
One last statement are we putting the tradition of men above Gods word in keeping a holiday of such questionable origins, not to mention what it has become. We don't need any paticular day as an excuse to preach the gospel, we should do it every day.
Great Sermon! The fact that Spurgeon used the opportunity conferred by the annual Christmas holiday to preach the gospel of the Incarnation in no way diluted his Protestantism, anymore than the usage of pagan names for our days of the week (Monday, Tuesday etc.,), and months of the year (January etc.,.), makes today's Christians into pagans. The old "chestnut" is resurrected every year about ChristMASS, as if every person even using the term is about to become a Papist! Some folks love to quote Spurgeon very selectively in relation to ChristMAS, rightly pointing out,of course,that he fully rejected Romanism, but conveniently ignoring his embracing of "the good accidentally conferred by the season"(CHS quote). Such people usually do not have the courage to label him a "compromiser", yet do not hesitate to condemn gospel preachers who organise their worship services in December in the same way as CHS did each year. It is patent nonsense to tar faithful gospel preachers with the same brush as the worshippers of the "pancake god", simply because they use the ChristMAS season to proclaim the truth about the Incarnation. Are these annual hobby-horse riders the only faithful custodians of the Faith? I think not. Perhaps soon they will show a similar zeal to take Janus (pagan goddess)out of January!
Great Sermon! I am sure that you are a man/peaple of prayer, so in humility I implore you to prayer on my behalf that the fire in my furnace will wax hotter and hotter to prayer for the kingdom on earth. Please prayer that my mind and physical energy will increase in power,so that I can work for the things of the kingdom: Study, Teach, Evangelize,Prayer, Encuorage,Love, and Fight the fight of faith.
Great Sermon! This sermon is precious rain on parched dry ground, if your heart is crushed by sins committed either before or since your conversion. How God can forgive and forget is brought home here in force, even when we can't forgive ourselves. What a blessing.
Great Sermon! This sermon should try the heart of any of us - especially if we, in our knowledge, have become puffed up, legalisic, critical, or self-content in our religious performance. This kind of preaching keeps us humble and gracious.
Awesome Sermon! Spurgeon has a way of describing Hell as no other man can. Even as a saved man i can literally become afraid as I hear him describe it as the "wrath to come" and how it will always be "to come..." with no ending. This message is one of my favorites and oh so powerful.
Switch to Romans 5:5 Carol, I've downloaded many of Spurgeon's sermons and have compared some with the text - it's all there. However, perhaps some have been "shortened" to fit MP3 downloads although I don't know this for a fact.
My experience is not in any way a coplete coverage survey. There are around sermons 3,500 in print [or electronic format].
and see if there is something there which "does not disappoint."
Great Sermon! I have listened to several of the sermons of C.H. Spurgeon and am quite disappointed that they are only partial sermons. Is there no way you can have the full sermon available for listening? Thank you so much.
Tremendous Exhortation! A powerful word from a man whose ministry was owned of God because he practiced what he here preaches. This message, given so long ago, seems to me as much needed today as ever. Here you will find refreshment to your souls, rejoicing in the Scriptures of Truth, and renewed desire to "Search the Scriptures." I heartily recommend this sermon. One of my favorite lines was this charge to children of believers: "Cast not away lightly your spiritual heritage, for it may be pure gold; but fail not to test it against the touchstone of truth, for it may be but fool's gold." To God be the glory!
