Sermon of the Week: No. 237, "Hypocrisy"

Feb 19 For Charles Spurgeon, the “eminence” of pretence “at the present hour” was greatly distressing. In this sermon he lamented that “counterfeit has at length attained to such an eminence” that it was “with the utmost difficulty” that it could be detected. Accordingly, Spurgeon sought to shine a light on hypocrisy and urged his congregation to “examine yourselves.” For those wanting to grow in discernment, please be encouraged to take up...

Sermon of the Week: No. 471, " Accepted in the Beloved'"

Feb 11 “The beloved!” Spurgeon relished this “golden name” which the ancient church ascribed to Jesus Christ. Indeed, this “beloved” was the “glory as of the only begotten of the Father” and the “consolation of Israel.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon expounds on the sweetness our beloved Saviour.

Sermon of the Week: No. 1004, "'Bought with a Price'"

Feb 5 For Charles Spurgeon it was “no slight thing to be holy.” Furthermore, Spurgeon reveled that he had been “bought with a price.” Indeed, the precious blood of Christ demanded the highest degree of personal holiness. In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon meditates on the richness of being "bought with a price."

Sermon of the Week: No. 686, "Obedience Better Than Sacrifice"

Jan 28 Charles Spurgeon fervently believed that “to obey is better than sacrifice,” especially when the command was to “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon offers a pentrating examination of sinful, neglectful disobedience.

Sermon of the Week: No. 1, "The Immutability of God"

Jan 23 For Charles Spurgeon, God, in his Triune and immutable nature, was matchless in beauty. In his view the knowledge of God was the “highest science,” the “loftiest speculation,” and the “mightiest philosophy.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon contemplates the matchless character and nature God.

Sermon of the Week: No. 895, "A Summons to Battle"

Jan 14 For Charles Spurgeon the Biblical imagery of war was full of theological significance. Christians who had been bought and redeemed by the blood of Christ now found themselves drafted into the army of King Immanuel. In this sermon, Spurgeon emphasized that it was the particular duty of every Christian to serve, and it was “better for you to occupy the meanest place of service than to be an idle Christian.”...

Sermon of the Week: No. 745, "The Unsearchable Riches of Christ"

Jan 7 Charles Spurgeon believed with the Apostle Paul that it was “a great privilege to be allowed to preach the gospel.” It was not “drudgery” but was to be entered upon with “intense delight.” This was because as “Heralds of salvation” they carried “the most joyful of all messages.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon explores the depths of the "unsearchable riches of Christ."

Sermon of the Week: No. 1205, "All for Jesus"

Dec 31 Charles Spurgeon believed it was an “unrivalled honour and an unsurpassed delight” to be able to “do anything for Jesus.” Indeed, he was “insatiably ambitious” to bring honour to the Lord Jesus Christ. In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon exhorts and equips his congregation so that they may be "all for Christ."

Sermon of the Week: No. 109, "Going Home - Christmas Sermon"

Dec 24 When Charles Spurgeon wished that there were “twenty Christmas days in the year” it was because he knew that Christmas was a home-going testimony-telling opportunity. In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon shows how Christ’s command to “Go home…and tell” holds implications for Christmas as well.
