There is a potency in harmony; there is a magic power in melody, which either melts the soul to pity, or lifts it up to joy unspeakable. I do not know how it may be with some minds; they possibly may resist the influence of singing; but I cannot. ~ Charles Spurgeon, "The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints"
They who stand before the throne sing of the Lamb—the Lion of the tribe of Judah, who took the book and broke the seals thereof—“ Thou hast made us kings and priests unto our God.” In heaven they do not sing “Glory, honor, praise, and power Be unto ourselves for ever; We have been our own Redeemers;—Hallelujah!” They never sing praise to themselves; they glorify not their own strength; they do not talk of their own free-will and their own might; but they ascribe their salvation, from beginning to end, to God. Ask them how they were saved, and they reply, “The Lamb hath made us what we are.” ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints
Some persons on earth do not know where to put the crown; but those in heaven do. They place the diadem on the right head; and they ever sing—“ And he hath made us what we are.” ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints
There is not a sin against me in God’s book they have all been for ever obliterated by the blood of Christ. and cancelled by his own right hand. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints
The cross of Jesus is the foundation of the glory of the saints; Calvary is the birth-place of heaven; heaven was born in Bethlehem’s manger; had it not been for the sufferings and agonies of Golgotha we should have had no blessing. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints
Let every mercy come to you as a blood-bought treasure; value it because it comes from him; and ever more say, “Thou hast made us what we are.” ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints
Believe all the Bible says of a glorious future, but I cannot pretend to be a maker of charts for all time. Only this I gather as a positive fact, that the saints will one day reign on the earth. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Kingly Priesthood of the Saints© Becky Laney of Operation Actually Read Bible
