Sermon of the Week: No. 350, "A Blow at Self-Righteousness"

May 21 Charles Spurgeon loathed self-righteousness. This sin was so pervasive that he said “it is born with us” and “there is perhaps no sin which has so much vitality in it.” Only trusting in Christ, not self, secured salvation. Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon helpfully dissects the sin of self-righteousness.

Sermon of the Week: No. 1030, "The Pilgrim's Longings"

May 15 For Charles Spurgeon, the call to Christian pilgrimage began with repentance and belief in Jesus Christ, but would culminate in Christ’s glorious return. Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon calls Christians to sojourn circumspectly and to run well while remembering that “the proof of faith lies in perseverance.”

Sermon of the Week: No. 1435, "Eternal Faithfulness Unaffected by Human Unbelief"

May 7 For Charles Spurgeon, Paul’s five “faithful sayings” were “weighty and important” because they struck at “the pith and marrow of the gospel.” He relished God’s eternal faithfulness, especially in light of the sinful weakness of God’s own people. Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon relishes the eternal faithfulness of God.

Sermon of the Week: No. 1338, "Work for Jesus"

May 1 For Charles Spurgeon, the command to “work to-day in my vineyard” was a call to zealously serve the Lord Jesus Christ. But this work was not “for life but from life.” Indeed, “there is no pleasure in the world like serving God.” Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon unpacks the sweetness of serving Christ.

Sermon of the Week: No. 229, "Love"

Apr 24 For Charles Spurgeon, the free offer of Salvation in Jesus Christ was his constant theme. The “pardoning blood” and “all-sufficient merits of the Lord Jesus Christ” filled his heart with delighted gratitude. Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon shows how the gospel of grace is the gospel which produces holiness out of gratitude and love.

Sermon of the Week: No. 1047, "The Triumph of Christianity"

Apr 16 For Charles Spurgeon, the “Triumph of Christianity,” indeed the triumph of Christ, was a glorious theme. The atoning death of Christ was his “motive for attempting the spread of the gospel.” Simply, “because Jesus died we feel he must be glorified.” Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon expounds the present and future victories of the cross.

Sermon of the Week: No. 530, "The Chief of Sinners"

Apr 8 For Charles Spurgeon, the Apostle Paul was incomparable among mortal men. He was a “mighty master” and “great teacher” who exhibited “every quality of grace” with “brilliancy,” and yet, Paul saw himself as the “chief of sinners.” Join us in this Sermon of the Week as Spurgeon meditates on God’s great grace in saving great sinners.

Sermon of the Week: No. 182, "Human Inability"

Apr 1 For Charles Spurgeon “coming to Christ” was full of meaning. It expressed the “[act] of soul” whereby sinners left their “self-righteousness” and ran “unto the Lord Jesus Christ” in order to “receive his righteousness.” “Coming to Christ” was an all-encompassing response which embraced “repentance” and “faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon explains how sinners "come to Christ."

Sermon of the Week: No. 807, "Good News for Loyal Subjects"

Mar 26 Charles Spurgeon believed that “there is a divine necessity that [King Jesus] must reign.” In his suffering, Christ was the “King of misery,” but, “To-day he is the King of glory, enthroned above all principalities and powers.” The King “once dishonoured” is “now exalted in the highest heaven.” In this sermon of the week join us as Spurgeon meditates upon the magnificent majesty of King Jesus.

Sermon of the Week: No. 106 "Turn or Burn"

Mar 18 Charles Spurgeon lamented that there were few who would “solemnly tell us of the judgment to come.” He saw his own era as that “evil generation” which “hath laboured to take away from God the sword of his justice.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon unpacks the nature of genuine repentance.
