Charles Spurgeon Quotes

He who looks sinward has his back to God-he who looks Godward has his back to sin.
— Charles Spurgeon —

True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is far deeper than that - it is spiritual transaction with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

— Charles Spurgeon

We are all at times unconscious prophets.

— Charles Spurgeon

Begin early to teach, for children begin early to sin.

— Charles Spurgeon

On Christ, and what he has done, my soul hangs for time and eternity. And if your soul also hangs there, it will be saved as surely as mine shall be. And if you are lost trusting in Christ, I will be lost with you and will go to hell with you. I must do so, for I have nothing else to rely upon but the fact that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, lived, died, was buried, rose again, went to heaven, and still lives and pleads for sinners at the right hand of God.

— Charles Spurgeon

If God has fit you to be a missionary, I would not have you shrivel down to be a king.

— Charles Spurgeon

If I had never joined a church till I had found one that was perfect, I should never
have joined one at all; and the moment I did join it, if I had found one, I should have
spoiled it, for it would not have been a perfect church after I had become a member of
it. Still, imperfect as it is, it is the dearest place on earthto us.

— Charles Spurgeon

A tear is enough water to float a desire to God.

— Charles Spurgeon

Free-will doctrine-what does it? It magnifies man into God. It declares God's purposes a nullity, since they cannot be carried out unless men are willing. It makes God's will a waiting servant to the will of man, and the whole covenant of grace dependent on human action. Denying election on the ground of injustice, it holds God to be a debtor to sinners.

— Charles Spurgeon

Believing right doctrine will no more save you, than doing good works will save you.

— Charles Spurgeon

In proportion as a church is holy, in that proportion will its testimony for Christ be powerful.

— Charles Spurgeon

It is not your hold of Christ that saves you, but His hold of you.

— Charles Spurgeon

It is a remarkable fact that all the heresies which have arisen in the Christian Church have had a decided tendency to dishonor God and to flatter man.

— Charles Spurgeon

The saints are sinners still. Our best tears need to be wept over, the strongest faith is mixed with unbelief, our most flaming love is cold compared with what Jesus deserves, and our intensest zeal still lacks the full fervor which the bleeding wounds and pierced heart of the crucified might claim at our hands. Our best things need a sin offering, or they would condemn us.

— Charles Spurgeon

A sermon without Christ as its beginning, middle, and end is a mistake in conception, a crime in execution.

— Charles Spurgeon

Money gained on Sabbath-day is a loss, I dare to say. No blessing can come with that which comes to us, on the devil's back, by our willful disobedience of God's law. The loss of health by neglect of rest, and the loss of soul by neglect of hearing the gospel, soon turn all seeming profit into real loss.

— Charles Spurgeon

A high character might be produced, I suppose, by continued prosperity, but it has very seldom been the case. Adversity, however it may appear to be our foe, is our true friend; and, after a little acquaintance with it, we receive it as a precious thing - the prophecy of a coming joy. It should be no ambition of ours to traverse a path without a thorn or stone.

— Charles Spurgeon

When God's mercies are coming, their footfalls are our desires to pray.

— Charles Spurgeon

Don't let your hopes or fears come between you and Jesus; follow hard after Him. He will never fail you.

— Charles Spurgeon

A father's holy life is a rich legacy for his sons.

— Charles Spurgeon

The whole Christ seeks after each sinner, and when the Lord finds it, he gives himself to that one soul as if he had but that one soul to bless. How my heart admires the concentration of all the Godhead and humanity of Christ in his search after each sheep of his flock.

— Charles Spurgeon
