My pastor J.D. Greear shared this quote a few weeks ago in his sermon, and I had to post it. For some reason, I can’t get through it without laughing. Spurgeon really did not care about the approval of man. Enjoy….
· “He who would place himself in front of a fast moving railway car will be crushed and would be just as foolish as you who are opposing the gospel. If the gospel is true, remember that truth is mighty and must prevail. Who are you to attempt to stand against it? You will be crushed. But let me tell you, when the railway car runs over you the wheel will not be raised even an inch by your size. For what are you? A tiny gnat, a creeping worm, which that wheel will crush to less than nothing and not leave you even a name as having ever been an opponent of the gospel. Let all the infidels in the world know assuredly that the Gospel will win its way, whatever they may do. Poor creatures…their efforts to oppose the gospel are not even worthy of our notice. And we need not fear that they can stop the truth. They are like a gnat who thinks he can quench the sun. Go tiny insect and do it if you can. You will only burn your wings and die. Likewise there may be a fly who thinks it could drink the ocean dry. Drink the ocean if you can, o fly. More likely you will sink in it and it will drink you.”
I mean really?!?! Who talks like this nowadays?!? Amazing. Maybe he was thinking about Matthew 21:44 when he said it….
“He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.”
Glad to be on Jesus’ team-
