Spurgeon Quote of the Day! 6-19-12

“Son of man I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel: therefore hear the word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me.” Ezekiel 3:17.

"My dear Brother, if you would be eminently useful, let your mind bow before the doctrines of the Scripture! Seek to know all that the Bible teaches, especially upon the main points of salvation, and yield yourself to the mind of Christ in all things. Desire to tell your fellow men just what the Lord tells you, no more and no less! And endeavor throughout your whole life to follow after the revealed Truth of God in its purity, rather than the dogmas of the fathers or the decrees of the sects. The Truth of God as it is in Jesus, pure and simple as we find it in the Word of God, should be our rule and guide. This will greatly help us towards success. It does not seem a very practical remark, but it is so.

The Holy Spirit first gives the Truth of God to our understanding and then gives us Grace to impart it to others. Get your ears cleansed, thoroughly cleansed, to hear God’s Word as God’s Word and be determined to know thoroughly what God’s Word has really taught and thus shall you be instructed to speak as God’s mouth to men. The great thing, I believe, with a successful winner of souls is to hear God’s Truth from God’s own mouth. What do I mean by this? I mean that a second-hand message is sure to be weakly delivered. A Brother repeats a story which somebody else has told to him! How cold it gets in passing from hand to hand—he who first saw the fact told it with far more life and energy!"
