Thursday's Spurgeon

The following is from Spurgeon's sermon entitled "His Name - The Mighty God."
"We know also that Christ proved himself to be the "mighty God" from the fact that at last all the sins of all his people were gathered upon his shoulders, and he bare them in his own body on the tree. The heart of Christ became like a reservoir in the midst of mountains. All the tribatary streams of iniquity, and every drop of the sins of his people, ran down and gathered into one vast lake, deep as hell and shoreless as eternity. All these met, as it were, in Christ's heart, and yet he endured them all. With many a sign of human weakness, but with convincing signs of divine omnipotence, he took all our griefs and carried all our sorrows. The divinity within strengthened his manhood, and though wave after wave rolled over his head, till he sank in deep mire where there was no standing, and all God's waves and his billows had gone over him, yet did he lift up his head, and more than a conqueror, at length, he put the sins of his people to a public execution. They are dead. They have ceased to be; and if they be sought for, they shall not be found any more forever. Certainly, if this be true, he is "the mighty God" indeed."
"Oh, Christians, believe him more than ever; cast your troubles constantly on him; he is "the mighty God;" go to him in all your dilemmas; when the enemy cometh in like a flood, this mighty God shall make a way for your deliverance; take to him your griefs, this mighty God can alleviate them all; tell him your backslidings and sins, this mighty God shall blot them out. And, O sinners, ye that feel your need of a Savior, come to Christ and trust him, for he is "the mighty God."
Amen and amen. In the midst of our worry, our pride, our ambitions and our failures, may we never fail to remember to turn to Christ, for truly He is "the mighty God."

  2. It is a good one, isn't it? I got the entire set of Spurgeon's sermons for Christmas--best gift ever! I'm sure I won't get through all of them before Christ returns, but I'm going to try! This one was so rich, I wish I'd had it in me to copy the entire thing!
