LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

Enquirers and Converts

In the second volume of Spurgeon's Autobiography "The Full Harvest",published by Banner of Truth, page 235, in the chapter entitled "Enquirers and Converts, we read of Spurgeon as he listens to the testimonies of people who have come to Christ at his church. He notes here the same basic themes that these converts testimonies shared. He says,"There are always the same essential marks-death, birth, life, food. Christ in the death, the birth, the life, the food-repentance, faith, joy, the work of the Holy Spirit of God. But it is very sweet to hear the story told in the many different ways in which the converts tell it. The true child of grace is ever the same at heart, although the outward appearance may continually vary".

Spurgeon always loved to see the work of God's Spirit in the hearts of those who come to Christ.

Janice, Spurgeon used to love to listen to people talk about how they came to Christ. He would listen to chimney sweepers and people from all walks of life. Though they looked different and came from different classes of society, yet the basic parts of their stories were all the same, reflecting the workings of God the Holy Spirit in the heart.

I think that we will be talking about how Jesus kept us from the pits of hell forever.
