On another note, here are some powerful quotes from Charles Haddon Spurgeon to meditate on:

A church in the land without the Spirit is rather a curse than a blessing. If you have not the Spirit of God, Christian worker, remember that you stand in somebody else’s way; you are a fruitless tree standing where a fruitful tree might grow.”

A church that does not exist to reclaim heathenism, to fight evil, to destroy error, to put down falsehood, a church that does not exist to take the side of the poor, to denounce injustice and to hold up righteousness, is a church that has no right to be. Not for yourself, O church, do you exist, any more than Christ existed for Himself.”

Alas! Much has been done of late to promote the production of dwarfish Christians. Poor, sickly believers turn the church into an hospital, rather than an army. Oh, to have a church built up with the deep godliness of people who know the Lord in their very hearts, and will seek to follow the Lamb wherever he goes!”

I do not think the devil cares how many churches you build, if only you have lukewarm preachers and people in them.”

I well remember how I joined the church after my conversion. I forced myself into it by telling the pastor, who was lax and slow, after I had called four or five times and could not see him, that I had done my duty, and if he did not see me and interview me for church membership, I would call a church meeting myself and tell them I believed in Christ and ask them if they would have me.”

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

C.J. Mahaney, a founder, pastor, and church planter of Sovereign Grace preaches on the topic of the church.  I thank God for using this man.  He has contributed much valuable resources in audio and writing.

A couple of years ago, a few other Christians and I went over a book called Why Small Groups? in a weekly Bible study that I used to teach.  The book is edited by C.J. and written by some Sovereign Grace pastors.  The book, which is in relation to the local church, has edified others and myself greatly.  I pray that  it will have an impact upon you as it has for me.  Much strife and conflict in a church you are attending can be avoided if one implements some of the important truths and principles articulated in this book.

For a free copy of this book in PDF, please see this link:

Why Small Groups?


Our grumbling is an expression of our ingratitude toward God” ~ C.J. Mahaney

The accent of our thoughts about our church should be on how God is at work – because God is at work.” ~ C.J. Mahaney

Evidences of grace starter kit: 1. Fruit of the Spirit 2. Gifts of the Spirit.” ~ C.J. Mahaney
