BELOVED FRIENDS AND KINDRED IN CHRIST,

The days seem like weeks and the weeks seem like months since I went up to the house of the Lord. My heart and my flesh are crying out for the assembly of the saints. Oh how I long to hear once more the solemn shout of the festal throng who with the voice of joy and praise keep holy day!

I am slowly rallying. My great struggle now is with weakness. I feel as if my frail bark had weathered a heavy storm which has made every timber creak. Do not attribute this illness to my having laboured too hard for my Master. For his dear sake, I would that I may yet be able to labour more. Such toils as might be hardly noticed in the ramp for the service of one’s country, would excite astonishment in the church for the service of our God.

And now, I entreat you for love’s sake to continue in prayer for me. When ye find access to God, remember me. Mind it is not by the words of your mouth, nor yet by the cravings of your heart, but it is by the precious blood of Christ ye must draw nigh to God. And when ye find his sweet presence and are bedewed with his holy anointing, then pour out your souls before him, and make mention of me in your supplications.

Yours to love and serve in the Gospel,

C. H. SPURGEON.

 

Clapham, Tuesday Evening, 26th October, 1858.

“Fear ye not me? saith the Lord; will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.”–Jeremiah 5:22-23.

 

Sermon #219 – An Appeal To Sinners

Sermon #219 – An Appeal To Sinners

Delivered on Sabbath Evening, September 14th, 1856, by the

REV. C.H. SPURGEON

at Exeter Hall, Strand.

DEARLY BELOVED,

It hath pleased the Lord by a painful illness to interrupt for a little while my usual labors. As I was unable to preach last Lord’s day, accept this week the issue of an old sermon. Though it has been buried in my publisher’s warehouse for two years, I pray God it may bud afresh and bring forth fruit, even as old corn after having been entombed in Egyptian sepulchres for centuries will often germinate again and yield an abundant crop. Ye have prayed for me. The Lord hath visited me in the chamber of affliction. I am recovering; and God knoweth “I long to see you, and impart unto you some spiritual gift;” and I trust that ere long “through your prayers I shall be given unto you.”

Yours in much affection,

C. H. S.
