Ten Charles Spurgeon Quotes, Remembering The Influential Preacher’s 180th Birthday

Ten Charles Spurgeon quotes are recounted by Relevant Magazine in commemoration of the influential preacher’s birthday. Spurgeon is a pastor in London for almost 40 years. He was one of the most well-known pastors of his day called as “Prince of Preachers.” Reportedly, Spurgeon is estimated to have preached 3,500 sermons to about 10 million people even without the advancement of the internet. He published 49 volumes of commentaries, anecdotes and devotionals during his lifetime, and the complete collection of his sermons fills 63 volumes, making it the largest set of books by a single author in the history of Christianity.

Here are ten of his most insightful sayings:

1.      “The way to do a great deal is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all is to be continually resolving that you will do everything.”

2.      “Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strengths.”

3.      “None are more unjust in their judgments of others than those who have a high opinion of themselves.”

4.      “Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.”

5.      “Nothing puts life into men like a dying Savior.”

6.      “All places are places of worship to a Christian. Wherever he is, he ought to be in a worshiping frame of mind.”

7.      “The more we pray, the more we shall want to pray. The more we pray, the more we can pray. The more we pray, the more we shall pray. He who prays little will pray less, but he who prays much will pray more. And he who prays more, will desire to pray more abundantly.”

8.      “I have a great need for Christ: I have a great Christ for my need.”

9.      “Pride is the devil’s dragnet in which he takes more fish than in any other, except procrastination.”

10.  “If you are renewed by grace, and were to meet your old self, I am sure you would be very anxious to get out of his company.”
