My Year with Spurgeon #1

The Death of The Christian
Charles Spurgeon
1855
Thou shall come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his season
Job 5:26
A Christian has nothing to lose by death. You say he has to lose his friends. I am not so sure of that. Many of you have may more friends in heaven than on earth; some Christians have more dearly beloved ones above than below. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Death of The Christian
A “full age” is whenever God likes to take his children home. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Death of The Christian
There are two mercies to a Christian. The first is that he will never die too soon; and the second, that he will never die too late. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Death of The Christian
I think the most honourable and glorious thing we shall ever behold, next to Christ’s entrance into heaven, and his glory there, is the entrance of one of God’s people into heaven. I can suppose it is made a holiday whenever a saint enters, and that is continually, so that they keep perpetual holiday. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Death of the Christian
Oh! methinks there is a shout that cometh from heaven whenever a Christian enters it, louder than the noise of many waters. ~ Charles Spurgeon, The Death of the Christian

I see another year with Spurgeon! Well, there is so much to glean from his sermons! I heard a pastor preaching on the radio the other day in regards to one of Spurgeon's sermons. A great man of God he was! So worth the time to get into his many sermons! Thank you for sharing them here!
Sorry I have been absent. For some reason I can randomly comment on blogs.
