Words of Cheer for Daily Life

Words of Cheer for Daily Life by Charles H. Spurgeon.

Spurgeon points people to their faith in God for finding joy in life. Spurgeon said "I am the subject of depressions of spirit so fearful that I hope none of you ever get to such extremes of misery as I go to, but I always get back again by this—I know I trust Christ. I have no reliance but in him, and if he falls I shall fall with him, but if he does not, I shall not. Because he lives, I shall live also, and I spring to my legs again and fight with my depression of spirit and my melancholy, and get the victory through it. So may you, and so you must, for there is no other way of escaping from it. In your most depressed seasons you are to get joy and peace through believing." The twenty-one chapters are excerpts of sermons that have to do with joy and hope in Christ. The text is updated to modern language.

Supposing Him to Be the Gardener

Supposing Him to Be the Gardener by Charles H. Spurgeon.
This sermon grew out of John 20:15: "Supposing him to be the gardener." Spurgeon used an extensive well-tended garden as a setting for this discourse, probably Dr. Bennet's large garden in Mentone, which Spurgeon frequently visited. When Jesus Christ is the gardener of creation it leads to many inferences: it spurs people to their duties, it relieves people from responsibilities they should never assume, it delivers people from fears, it is a warning for the careless, it is a calming influence to those who complain and lastly it is an outlook full of hope. Spurgeon said he is "hoping that I may open many roads of meditation for your hearts . . . to indicate in which direction you may look for a vein of precious ore."

Free Will—A Slave

Free Will—A Slave by Charles H. Spurgeon.
Spurgeon examines the nature of "free will," and uses the text John 5:40, "You will not come to me, that you might have life." He observes: "The will is well known by all to be directed by the understanding, to be moved by motives, to be guided by other parts of the soul, and to be a secondary thing." He puts forth the Calvinist doctrine that a person cannot come to Christ by their own means, but Christ must come to the person. He expounds on the nature of legal, spiritual and eternal deadness and how people are unable to overcome this by themselves. He then goes on to describe legal, spiritual and eternal life that is in Christ Jesus. The text was updated to modern language.

http://www.amazon.com/Greatest-Fight-World-Charles-Spurgeon/dp/1941281141/?tag=curiosmith0cb-20
The Greatest Fight in the World by Charles H. Spurgeon.
The greatest fight in the world is the lifework of fighting against false doctrine, worldliness, error and sin. Spurgeon was excited about the 1891 College Conference when he wrote, "my very soul is on fire with a desire for a special blessing from the Lord." This sermon was Spurgeon's Final Manifesto and his last annual Presidential Address given to The Pastor's College Evangelical Association. His extensive vision covers three headers: God's Word (20 topics), the Church (10 topics) and the Holy Spirit (17 topics). The address covers many fundamental considerations of the Christian minister's life, but is useful to any Christian. The text was updated to modern language.

The Hairs of Your Head Numbered

The Hairs of Your Head Numbered by Charles H. Spurgeon.
Spurgeon explores four different topics that pertain to Matthew 10:30: "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered." God's providence guided by divine foresight; His knowledge of every intimate detail of life; His valuation of everyday people that gives them great worth; and His preservation to eternal life so that no harm can befall a believer. These promises help to encourage believers and bring a valuable reassurance of God's special love. The sermon was updated to modern language.
Quote: "If even the very hairs of our head are all numbered, if everything be really ordained of the Most High concerning His people, let us rejoice in the divine appointment, and take it as it comes, and praise His name, whether our allotment be rough or smooth, bitter or sweet."

Baptismal Regeneration

Baptismal Regeneration by Charles H. Spurgeon.
Spurgeon felt strongly against the doctrine that the baptism of an adult or infant can save a soul. The doctrine was found in the Book of Common Prayer and was practiced by the Church of England. He warned that the idea was misleading and people might go to hell because of it. Spurgeon presented certain facts which disputed the doctrine. He also outlined the correct doctrine of faith in Jesus Christ for salvation. Spurgeon called for the fiery vehemence of a John Knox or Martin Luther to "rouse our hearts to action." The sermon was updated to modern language.

Sermons in Candles by Charles H. Spurgeon.
Candles made a relevant object lesson because they commonly illuminated homes and churches. Spurgeon presents many different kinds of candles, their accessories, their history and their uses, and teaches a corresponding spiritual lesson. Some examples include: "Grace is like the light of a candle helping those around it," "Bibles which are never read are like lanterns which are never turned on," and "Always put the weaker brother in the place of honor if you can, and thus make the best use of his light." This book is richly illustrated to help explain the concepts.

The Clue of the Maze

Spurgeon's own experiences in the maze of life help others fight doubt. The book is not meant to be a formal argument but is given "to assist a friend."

I hope that by these pages some true heart may be assisted to 'fight his doubts and gather strength.'" The book contains 70 passages to help a person in times of doubt.

Twelve Sermons on Vital Questions by Charles H. Spurgeon.
Charles Spurgeon answers essential spiritual questions. Will God be merciful if we come to him? Are we worshiping for selfish reasons? Are we responsible for others in our teachings, example and sharing of the gospel? Do we truly "know" Christ, or do we only know doctrine and facts about Christ? Are we prepared to die? How do we obtain faith? Are we on the Lord's side in different life issues? and Do we really believe on the Son of God? These are deep questions believers and unbelievers would benefit by earnestly answering.
     The twelve sermons are titled: Who Can Tell?, God or Self—Which?, Am I Clear of His Blood?, Do You Know Him?, Are You Prepared to Die?, How Can I Obtain Faith?, For Whom Is the Gospel Meant?, Am I My Brother's Keeper?, On Whose Side Are You?, May I?, And Why Not Me?, And The Question of Questions.

According to Promise

http://www.amazon.com/According-Promise-Method-Dealing-Chosen/dp/1935626833/?tag=curiosmith0cb-20
According to Promise: The Lord's Method of Dealing with His Chosen People by Charles H. Spurgeon.
Spurgeon discusses many aspects of the promises of God. What are the promises of God? Who are the promises for? Where can you find them? Why does God give promises for the future that require faith? "There can be no true believer apart from the promise of grace, and the grace of the promise." Spurgeon discusses how important Jesus is to God's promises, and that God promises salvation and eternal life to all who believe on his Son. "If God does not give to us according to the riches of his grace, we are then worse than naked, and poor, and miserable; we are utterly and altogether undone." This book is a companion volume to "All of Grace."
