What did Charles Spurgeon think about Lent?

My post yesterday titled, "A Charles Spurgeon prayer for lent" created some interesting dialog on the Facebook page. The voiced concerns were that Charles Spurgeon wouldn't celebrate the season of Lent, at all. Many said they did some research and dug through his sermons but to no avail. I want to share with you what I found from different Spurgeon sermons.Colossians 2:16. Let no man, therefore, judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the S … [Read more...]

A Charles Spurgeon prayer for lent.

Lord Jesus, take from us now everything that would hinder the closest communion with God. Any wish or desire that might hamper us in prayer remove, we pray you. Any memory of either sorrow or care that might hinder the fixing of our affection wholly on our God, take it away now. What have we to do with idols anymore? You have seen and observed us. You know where the difficulty lies. Help us against it, and may we now come boldly, not in the holy place alone, but in the holiest of all, where we sh … [Read more...]

Charles Spurgeon said that, "True prayer is measured by weight, not by length. A single groan before God may have more fullness of prayer in it than a fine oration of great length."This is a great reminder for us. How many would say that we spend great lengths in prayer so we can 'feel' holy? Or maybe so we can accomplish some of our plans for our life, with God as the magic genie that grants us gifts. I don't think we would say that out loud, or even in a small group, but sometimes I think … [Read more...]

John Calvin writes one of the best paragraphs you’ll ever read.

CALVIN

"We see that our whole salvation and all its parts are comprehended in Christ (Acts 4:12). We should therefore take care not to derive the least portion of it from anywhere else. If we seek salvation we are taught by the very name of Jesus that it is 'of him' (1 Cor 1.13). If we seek any other gifts of the Spirit, they will be found in his anointing. If we seek strength, it lies in his dominion; if purity, in his conception; if gentleness, it appears in his birth. For by his birth he was made … [Read more...]
