Wisdom Wednesday

John 1:16 (ESV)
“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”

It’s Wisdom Wednesday and I am sharing some Spurgeon quotes. I pray that your heart will be touched and that you will share with us as the Spirit of God directs.
In all truth, although short quotes, there are more than most will want in one day so I will extend this Wisdom Wednesday on tomorrow.
I pray your heart will smile as mine is now as I ponder the greatness of our God.

Charles Haddon (CH) Spurgeon (1834 – 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher. Spurgeon remains highly influential among Christians of various denominations, among whom he is known as the “Prince of Preachers”. He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition and was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. His oratory skills held his listeners spellbound in the Metropolitan Tabernacle and many Christians have discovered Spurgeon’s messages to be among the best in Christian literature.

  1. Thank you for this. Quotes 3 and 5 bring this to mind: Scripture repeatedly shows God’s future leaders being set apart for many years, kept relatively inactive. In unattractive environments lacking the recognition of men, they suffer trials and/or are disciplined through peculiar circumstances of daily life, yet are clearly favored in God’s eyes. They learn their weaknesses, they learn of God, they are humbled, and become utterly dependent on Him. Joseph was sold into slavery by jealous brothers when seventeen, yet God was clearly with him. Nevertheless, he was then imprisoned for years before God raised him to Pharaoh’s right hand at thirty. Moses left the riches of Egypt and tended sheep in the desert for forty years before God called him to deliver Israel, meek by age eighty. Joshua was set apart to the Lord “outside the camp” of the Israelites forty years before God appointed him to lead His people in conquering Canaan (Ex. 33:7, 11). Of course, Jesus lived an inconspicuous sinless life outside the religious community for thirty years before He was baptized, tempted, and began His ministry.
    Praise God for taking His leaders through such breakings of our “soul-dominated” nature in order to bring us into our true new spiritual selves!

  2. #6 – In my walk of life, I have found it is true that anything that causes me to pray constantly is a blessing. It turns out to be that everything is a blessing because we live, move and have our being in Him and Him alone. There are times that certain things occur in our lives which will cause us to pray and seek Him more. This causes our fellowship to be constant which is good simply because our trials, tests and burdens brings us closer to God. This causes us to remember difficulties that God brought us through in the past and each one of them nurtured and strengthened us as we went through. So, what a privilege it is to be blessed by the Best as we continue to receive grace upon grace.

  3. #1 and #7 “The higher a man is in grace, the lower he will be in his own esteem. Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.” The only way we can understand, truly know and live this is grace upon grace. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God!
