In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon meditates upon the sweetness of his immutable, unchanging Lord Jesus Christ.
Oct 18 Good stories have good endings. For Charles Spurgeon, the story of Jesus Christ which culminated in the acclamation and glorification of the Redeemer was the very height of joy itself. Indeed, he said “No joy ever visits my soul like that of knowing that Jesus is highly exalted.” In recognition of Spurgeon's great gladness in Jesus Christ here are twelve quotes regarding joy from the Prince of Preachers.
Oct 15 The jealousy of God made Charles Spurgeon tremble with awe. God could not endure to see a creature "made to wear his crown," or the idols in the hearts of men.

Sep 27 Grace. For Charles Spurgeon, God’s superabounding, overflowing grace was man’s “star of hope,” “wellspring of life,” and the “seed of his future bliss.” He believed that “No truth is more plainly taught” than this: “the salvation of sinners is entirely owing to the grace of God.” In this Sermon of the Week join us as Spurgeon unfolds the riches of the grace of God in Jesus Christ.

Sep 20 Charles Spurgeon was for the Church. As he said, "I love the church of God." He exhorted beleivers to "Labour then, for God's sake," but also for "the Church's sake."

Sep 17 Christ is precious. Spurgeon said of Christ, "I must know him; I cannot live without knowing him."

In this Sermon of the Week we will join Spurgeon in reflecting on knowing Christ, the ultimate object of adoration.
