Spurgeon on Preaching

I came across this quote recently by Charles Haddon Spurgeon, known as the “Prince of Preachers.” Sage advice for those who stand in the pulpit to deliver God’s message.

The power that is in the gospel does not lie in the eloquence of the preacher; otherwise men would be the converters of souls. Nor does it lie in the preacher’s learning; otherwise it would consist in the wisdom of men. We might preach until our tongues rotted, till we would exhaust our lungs and die, but never a soul would be converted unless the Holy Spirit be with the Word of God to give it power to convert the soul.”

Amen!

Αυτω η δοξα,

Jason
