C.H. Spurgeon 10

Description: Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born in Kelvedon, Essex in 1834. His father and grandfather were both Independent pastors, with roots in both the Dutch and English Dissenting traditions. Like Timothy, from infancy Charles Spurgeon had known the Holy Scriptures: ¬ďIt would not be easy for some of us to recall the hour when we first heard the name of Jesus,¬Ē wrote Spurgeon, obviously including himself in this beautiful description of a covenant home. ¬ďIn very infancy that sweet sound was as familiar to our ear as the hush of a lullaby. Our earliest recollections are associated with the house of God, the family altar, the Holy Bible, the sacred song, and the fervent prayer.¬Ē Spurgeon, who was destined to become Britain¬ís most illustrious preacher of the century, was converted on a snowy Sunday morning in early 1850 as a result of the less than illustrious ¬ďpreaching¬Ē of a layman in a Primitive Methodist Chapel in Colchester, Essex. Under a brief and very personally applied development of the text ¬ďLook unto me and be ye saved all the ends of the earth,¬Ē Spurgeon¬ís heart was changed by sovereign grace. ¬ď¬ĎLook!¬í What a charming word it seemed to me! Oh, I looked until I could almost have looked my eyes away. There and then the cloud was gone, the darkness rolled away, and that moment I saw the sun; and I could have risen that instant and sung with the most enthusiastic of them of the precious blood of Christ and the simple faith which looks alone to Him.¬Ē That joy in almighty saving grace, and that experimental conviction of full, free justification by faith alone in Christ alone would leave an indelible mark on every part of the ministry that was soon to be his.
