The Urgency of Our Evangelistic Duty

Your weekly dose of Spurgeon
posted by Phil Johnson

The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. What follows is brief, but it's one of Spurgeon's most famous quotations. It comes from "The Wailing of Risca," a sermon preached Sunday Morning, 9 December 1860, at Exeter Hall, London.

h my brothers and sisters in Christ, if sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay, and not madly to destroy themselves. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.

C. H. Spurgeon

So, so good. I love this quote and the urgency and challenge it brings to bear on my heart.

As time draws to a close as it was in the days of Noah, may God have mercy upon us to heed these words of wisdom from uncle Charles.

Favorite Spurgeon quote - a true Calvinist missionary approach!

Would that this would be lived out in actual practice.

I just read this quote today on Dan Kimball's blog.
Excellent words.
Have a Christ focused week, for He is for you, and so who can be against you.
