The Soul Winner – Part 7

Here is the last batch of quotes from The Soul Winner. I hope you were encouraged and challenged by C.H. Spurgeon to work harder and smarter for the goal of winning souls for Christ! I would encourage you to read the whole book!

(Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 if you haven’t read them yet).

“But I fear there are others who hands are slack, who are satisfied to let me preach, but do not themselves preach; who take these seats, and occupy these pews, and hope the cause goes well, but that is all they do.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 195)

“What bliss to see the once rebellious brought home to God, and heirs of wrath made possessors of heaven.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 208-209)

“If the kingdom is ever to come to our Lord–and come it will–it never will come through a few ministers, missionaries, or evangelists preaching the gospel. It must come through every one of you preaching it–in the shop and by the fireside, when walking abroad and when sitting in the chamber. You must, all of you, be always endeavouring to ‘save some.’” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 209)

“Let us never venture to speak for God to men, until we have spoken for men to God.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 213)

“Your one business in life is to lead men to believe in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, and every other thing should be made subservient to this one object; if you can but get them saved, everything else will come right in due time.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 214)

“You cannot pull people out of the water without stopping down and getting hold of them. If you have to deal with bad characters, you must come down to them, not in their sin, but in their roughness and in their style of language, so as to get a hold of them. I pray God that we may learn the sacred art of soul-winning by adaptation.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 215)

“You have not attained to the full development of the Christ-life in you unless you have commenced in some feeble way to tell others of the grace of God.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 218-219)

“His Word is, ‘Follow Me, not merely that you may be saved, nor even that you may be sanctified; but, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.’”’” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 219)

“To reclaim the prodigal is well, but to save him from ever being a prodigal is better.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 252)
