The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. The following excerpt is from "A Psalm of Remembrance," a sermon preached Sunday morning, May 22nd, 1859, at the Music Hall, Royal Surrey Dardens. Spurgeon's text was 1 John 4:16: "We have known and believed the love that God hath to us." (This may be slightly more than 50 words, but we'll cut Spurgeon a little slack.)
o feel God’s love is very precious, but to believe it when you do not feel it, is the noblest. He may be but a little Christian who knows God’s love, but he is a great Christian who believes it when the visible contradicts it and the invisible withholds its witness.
