A Sermon Without Christ

In Reformed Baptist Fellowship on March 13, 2012 at 9:19 am

The best sermons are the sermons, which are fullest of Christ. A sermon without Christ, it is an awful, a horrible thing. It is an empty well; it is a cloud without rain; it is a tree twice dead, plucked by the roots. It is an abominable thing to give men stones for bread, and scorpions for eggs, and yet they do so who preach not Jesus. A sermon without Christ! As well talk of a loaf of bread without any flour in it. How can it feed the soul? Men die and perish because Christ is not there, and yet his glorious gospel is the easiest thing to preach, and the sweetest thing to preach; there is most variety in it, there is more attractiveness in it than in all the world besides;[1]

[1] Charles H. Spurgeon, Spurgeon’s Sermons: Volume 14, Christ the Glory of His People.

  1. Very true are these words from Mr. Spurgeon! Yet I have been humbled and downcasted in my own soul having been guilty of this very thing. A lot of rod, fire, and brimstone, with a touch of Christ! If we are going to tare down, we must by the grace of God build back up by setting forth Jesus Christ! Let’s be faithful to God and compassionate to souls brethren.

  2. Thank you! When I hear a sermon full of Christ is when I feel my soul is fed. Please pastors, preach this way!
