humility-micahs-message-for-today-spurgeon

Charles H. Spurgeon. Humility: Micah’s Message for Today.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, June 18th, 2015. 19 pp.

This is an exposition of Micah 6:8 by the Prince of Preacher Charles Spurgeon.  Here in this booklet Spurgeon focuses on the passage’s call for humility.  It was originally based upon a sermon that Spurgeon preached in 1889.  It is amazing to think that this message by a Victorian era preacher can remain relevant for Christians today.  This is a testament of the enduring value of faithful preaching based upon the Bible and also how man’s problem in every age remains basically the same.  Of course, the solution is still found in the same Gospel as given in Scripture!

struggles-of-conscience-spurgeon

Charles H. Spurgeon. Struggles of Conscience.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, April 23rd, 2014. 29 pp.

5 out of 5

This booklet is from a sermon by Charles Spurgeon that he preached on September 23, 1860 based in part upon Job 13:23 (it is a more topical sermon in the way that Spurgeon often gets a textual preacher from one verse).  This year I have been reading more of Spurgeon and I must say thus far this is one of my favorite work that has been made available through Chapel Library.  Here in this work Spurgeon tackles on the problem that some have that one must have a deeper sense of feelings of their sinfulness before they would repent and turn towards Christ.  Anyone who knows Spurgeon knows he loves the Puritans but here he does fault some Puritans for making the mistake of confusing post-conversion “feelings” must manifest before one come to saving faith in Christ.  At times some of these preachers make their own experience to be the litmus test of true conversion.  In tackling this problem and objection towards the Gospel we see a display of the “classic Spurgeon” in which his message is pastorally directed towards the heart, is Gospel driven, biblical, practical, illustrative and dripping with memorable one-liners.

A Defense of Calvinism Spurgeon

I love how this book begins with Spurgeon making the point that it is important to be grounded with right doctrines and the right Gospel early on as a Christian.  He even have a great illustration of this: “If a tree has to be taken up two or three times a year, you will not need to build a very large loft in which to store the apples.”  With such an opening my interests for this booklet was perked.

Technically this booklet wasn’t necessarily a point by point proof of the five point of Calvinism, often called “TULIP.”  It is really more of a general defense of God’s sovereignty in salvation.  Of course since Spurgeon is a Calvinist this booklet definitely touches on the points of Calvinism even if it isn’t as systematic as other defense of Calvinism might be.  Spurgeon shares his thought on “free will” in light of his own observation of the depravity in his own heart and also the doctrine of Total Depravity.  The bulk of the book makes observation and arguments from Christian understanding of salvation in general and how it makes sense from a high view of God’s Sovereignty.  Spurgeon also deals with the objection that the doctrine of Sovereign Grace leads to an excuse of living a life of habitual sins.  Edifying read.

For your Spurgeon fixing…

The Blood of the Lamb the conquering weapon

Charles H. Spurgeon. Blood of the Lamb : The Conquering Weapon.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, September 11th, 2014. 23 pp.

This is an adaptation from an 1888 sermon by the famous preacher Charles Spurgeon.  Spurgeon’s message is based upon Revelation 12:11.  This sermon is about how the blood of Jesus Christ is the believers’ spiritual weapon.  This booklet is broken down into two points with the first being what this conquering weapon is and the second point being how to apply the blood of Christ in one’s spiritual battle with Satan.  The second part was practical while the first point pretty much is driven by the truth of the Gospel of what Christ has done through His blood.  I found this to be an edifying read and used this to read with another brother together.  I believe others will find this to be edifying as well.
