Pithy gems from Spurgeon #4

(Charles Spurgeon)

The most damning thing in the world
is self-righteousness!

Many in the church are toiling like ants to gain this world's dross,
but are as idle as a butterfly in regard to divine things.

There is no shelter from an angry God, but in the pierced hand of His dear Son!

My longing is that the churches may be more holy.

I grieve to see so much conformity to the world among Christians.
How many Christians follow the fashions of this wicked world.

Time is flying! Men are dying! Hell is filling!

I suppose if any man among us could see his own heart as it really is, he would be driven mad. The poet was right when he said, "God saves all beings but Himself, from that hideous sight—a human heart!"

If you profess to know Christ, have nothing to do with a sinful world.
Shake off the viper into the fire, for it will poison you and destroy you!

If you want to know what Heaven is, know what Christ is.
The way to spell Heaven is with those five letters that make up the word J E S U S.

He who counts the stars and calls them by their names, is in no danger of forgetting His own redeemed children. He knows your case as thoroughly as if you were the only creature He ever made, or the only saint He ever loved!
