Great Sermon! That was the best sermon I have heard about the absolute soverignty of god, mans depravity and mans absolute necessity of god being the giver and first cause of all good things in us. Please brethren hear that wonderful message... And to the reader I will say that he has a god given talent of reading sermons in a way that they come alive and sounds like spurgeon would preach them live.
Great Sermon! Wow, that man has a god given gift to read and express the depth of the sermon by simply reading it. Please continue reading sermons! That sermon is one of the most fearfull things ive ever heard.
A REBUKING SERMON A reminder for me!
WORLD VISION, siphoning millions of dollars from Christians, SHOULD AND MUST LISTEN to this beautiful sermon. A "CHRISTIAN MINISTRY" that doesn't care about introducing Jesus Christ is a useless ministry and using Church resources in a very wasteful way - unprofitable servants.
Great Sermon! Good sermon from C.H. Spurgeon! Thankfully someone has read it alod and recorded it for us to hear. I turned to the archives today to find a sermon on The Lord Jesus this Lord's Day ( I was home somewhat ill), because none of the Live webcasts so far this morning were speaking about Christ Jesus , but rather about vague pyscho-blab concepts & family stuff & "self" issues. Please - Preach Christ and Him crucified or get out of the Pulpit! Small wonder people don't understand the Hymns anymore, or wish to sing them: They don't know about the Bible passages from which the hymns are written. "On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand!"
Praise the Lord! . . . For a reminder we cannot afford to disregard! I am so thankful that there are men such as Spurgeon that preach[ed] the truth of the scripture with such passion, humility and love, and "care not" for what others may think of them for it. Lord, teach us to see ourselves aright, and Thee in the splendor of Thy holiness and goodness and worth.
Come to Jesus The sermons of Charles Spurgeon sparkle with theological brilliance. This particular message started off strong and finished with an urgent call to the unconverted to repent of their sins and come to Jesus. Spurgeon maintains doctrinal consistency, and eternal perspective, and rhetorical eloquence throughout. I particularly liked the first part of the message where he unpacked the metaphor of Christ as a hen protecting, comforting, and developing his cherished chicks. Let us all take refuge under the mighty wing of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Great Sermon! I used to attend a local church with this brother whose name is Tod Magstadt. As far as I know, this is the only Edwards sermon he has done. However, he has done many, many Spurgeon sermons. We used to hear one every month on a Sunday evening. It was great!
Believe in the LORD Jesus (Don't Wait)! The urgency in Spurgeon's preaching is altogether absent in most postmodern preaching. He dissects Luke 11:29 by showing that seeking a sign, whether an emotional experience, or a miracle, or any type of external thing whatsoever, apart from the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, is folly. I was amazed at the different reasons he provided concerning why people don't believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. God is holding out the message of eternal life, but people won't believe.
There's a humorous illustration about a woman who thought she saw Christ in a dream. Turns out, she was mistaken. This by itself is worth listening to the sermon.
Lastly, I would encourage you to listen to this sermon because it is gospel-centered and gives sufficient reasons why believing in Jesus Christ is the most reasonable thing to do for those who are "dead in their trespasses and sins" (Eph. 2:1). Believe in the Lord Jesus as the Savior of the world; don't ask for a sign, don't wait, just do it!
Inspiring and Challenging! This is Spurgeon at his finest. The sermon itself is about the superiority of the Mary Spirit over the Martha Spirit in the Church.
The first part is how the Martha spirit is very prevalent in the Church. The second part is how the Martha spirit injures true service. At this point the listener is already convinced of the inferiority of the Martha spirit compared to the Mary Spirit. However, the "Prince of Preachers" is at his finest in the third part where he shows the excellency of the Mary Spirit. I'll leave that for you to discover.
The preacher is authoritative in preaching the Word of God. His rhetorical fluorishes and creative illustrations that captures the listener's attention. What more can I say? Spurgeon was a beast.

Good speaker It is true, the speaker who delivers this Spurgeon sermon is easier to listen to than some of the others who read the other Spurgeon sermons on here. Some of them read it like you read a story, and some read with a dead, passionless voice, but this speaker reads Spurgeon as though he himself is a preacher and as if he believes what he is saying. He is an older gentleman who reads with articulate and intelligent accentuation where needed. Some of the others make me snore. I recommend this sermon. In it Spurgeon talks about abiding and (briefly) the difference between the person who abides and the one who does not. The abiding person ASKS, the non-abiding person does not ask, and so forth.
