A Sermon
(No. 120)
Delivered on Sabbath Morning, March 8, 1857, by the
REV. C. H. Spurgeon
At The Music Hall, Royal Surrey Gardens


“There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”—Proverbs 18:24.

CICERO has well said, “Friendship is the only thing in the world concerning the usefulness of which all mankind are agreed.” Friendship seems as necessary an element of a comfortable existence in this world as fire or water, or even air itself. A man may drag along a miserable existence in proud solitary dignity, but his life is scarce life, it is nothing but an existence, the tree of life being stripped of the leaves of hope and the fruits of joy. He who would be happy here must have friends; and he who would be happy hereafter, must, above all things, find a friend in the world to come, in the person of God, the Father of his people.

This week, we will continue our study of Genesis 1 by looking at verses 6-8. These verses cover the second day of the Creation of the universe. So that we can get into the right mind, we should first pray and seek God’s wisdom. We want to understand the scriptures the way God meant them. We do not want to add anything from science or man’s ideas or read those things into the Bible. We also have to be careful that we don’t add to the scriptures anything that we’ve been taught growing up in church. This isn’t to say that everything that you’ve heard preached is wrong; what I’m saying is that we should understand what the scripture says first and then compare that to what we’ve heard or what science says. If they line up and make sense then we should be ok. If they don’t, then we need to cling to the scripture and either adjust or reject what we’ve heard or been taught. We should desire to take God at His Word. It is a good rule of thumb that if the plain reading of the passage makes sense, that is most likely the one that is meant. Continue Reading Genesis 1:6-8…
