Reading Charles Spurgeon is always a good activity. Reading Charles Spurgeon’s The Treasury of David is especially a good activity.
Here are ten quotes from The Prince of Preachers from the Psalm 44 section of The Treasury of David.
God hath made us for Himself.
Last night, October 17, 2016, I had the privilege of hearing the noted historian, George Marsden, lecture at Palm Beach Atlantic University on the topic titled, “The Genius of C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity.”
The lecture was based on part of Marsden’s book, C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: a Biography which was published earlier this year. Doing a biography of a book is an interesting approach. But books like Mere Christianity have had a life all to themselves. So it was a very appropriate approach.
The Scripture is both a glass to show your spots, and a laver to wash them away.
How do you respond when you have a fine Sunday dinner waiting on you, and the preacher has gone into overtime? This Lyle Lovett song tackles this issue with a jazzy, humorous solution.
My favorite line,
If a preacher preaches long enough, even he’ll get hungry, too.

We can easily slide into becoming overly comfortable with God. We begin to slip. We trifle with him. We take him for granted. Our Father who art in heaven, yada, yada.
And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
