20 Amazing Quotes from Charles Spurgeon



Charles H. Spurgeon is sometimes called the “Prince of Preachers.” He was a nineteenth century British Baptist preacher, but was popular among many different denominations because of his powerful speaking skills and prolific writings. He wrote sermons, hymns, devotionals, and much more. Because of his many writings – and because many of his sermons were transcribed as he was preaching – much of his wisdom is readily available to us today.

    As well might a gnat seek to drink in the ocean, as a finite creature to comprehend the Eternal God. A God whom we could understand would be no God. If we could grasp Him, He could not be infinite. If we could understand Him, He could not be divine.

  1. 17

    Doth not all nature around me praise God? If I were silent, I should be an exception to the universe. Doth not the thunder praise Him as it rolls like drums in the march of the God of armies? Do not the mountains praise Him when the woods upon their summits wave in adoration? Doth not the lightning write His name in letters of fire? Hath not the whole earth a voice? And shall I, can I, silent be?

    Doubt discovers difficulties which it never solves; it creates hesitancy, despondency, despair. Its progress is the decay of comfort, the death of peace. “Believe!” is the word which speaks life into a man, but doubt nails down his coffin.

    Our sorrows are all, like ourselves, mortal. There are no immortal sorrows for immortal souls. They come, but blessed be God, they also go. Like birds of the air, they fly over our heads. But they cannot make their abode in our souls. We suffer today, but we shall rejoice tomorrow.
