A Sermon

Delivered on Sabbath Evening, January 7th, 1855, by the

REV. C. H. Spurgeon

At New Park Street Chapel, Southwark.

“This do in remembrance of me.”—1 Corinthians 11:24.

It seems, then, that Christians may forget Christ. The text implies the possibility of forgetfulness concerning him whom gratitude and affection should constrain them to remember. There could be no need for this loving exhortation, if there were not a fearful supposition that our memories might prove treacherous, and our remembrance superficial in its character, or changing in its nature. Nor is this a bare supposition: it is, alas, too well confirmed in our experience, not as a possibility, but as a lamentable fact. It seems at first sight too gross a crime to lay at the door of converted men. It appears almost impossible that those who have been redeemed by the blood of the dying Lamb should ever forget their Ransomer; that those who have been loved with an everlasting love by the eternal Son of God, should ever forget that Son; but if startling to the ear, it is alas, too apparent to the eye to allow us to deny the fact. Forget him who ne’er forgot us! Forget him who poured his blood forth for our sins! Forget him who loved us even to the death! Can it be possible? Yes it is not only possible, but conscience confesses that it is too sadly a fault of all of us, that we can remember anything except Christ. The object which we should make the monarch of our hearts, is the very thing we are most inclined to forget. Where one would think that memory would linger, and unmindfulness would be an unknown intruder, that is the spot which is desecrated by the feet of forgetfulness, and that the place where memory too seldom looks. I appeal to the conscience of every Christian here: Can you deny the truth of what I utter? Do you not find yourselves forgetful of Jesus? Some creature steals away your heart, and you are unmindful of him upon whom your affection ought to be set. Some earthly business engrosses your attention when you should have your eye steadily fixed upon the cross. It is the incessant round of world, world, world; the constant din of earth, earth, earth, that takes away the soul from Christ. Oh! my friends, is it not too sadly true that we can recollect anything but Christ, and forget nothing so easy as him whom we ought to remember? While memory will preserve a poisoned weed, it suffereth the Rose of Sharon to wither. Continue Reading Sermon Sunday – Charles Spurgeon Remembrance of Christ…

Design of the Week – He delivers!

This design was something that I had in the back of my mind but I couldn’t figure out how to tie it all together. I knew that I wanted to make a stamp with Jesus on it, but how could I relate that to Christianity?

The answer is deliverance! While the US Postal Service says that they’ll deliver through rain, sleet, snow, and dark of night, I don’t ever recall them delivering someone from addiction…:)

Deliverance is something that comes from the realization that you and I can do nothing to save ourselves. It comes when we realize that we are sinners that, left to our own devices, would destroy ourselves and others as we chased after “what we need”. If you don’t believe me, look back on your life and see what happened when you did things your way…

Jesus does deliver and He delivers completely. Sadly, many people look at deliverance as some sort of spiritual “shockwave”. To many, it’s an emotional “explosion” where God “moves” in their lives and completely changes them. Well, that is until the emotional high wears off and they come back to earth. Then, things are like they used to be (if not worse). That’s not deliverance.

Deliverance is the result of fully trusting in God’s Word. It’s understanding that God meant what He said and He plans to do it. It’s knowing that God may not do things your way, but He will always do things so that He is glorified. Deliverance is realized when you obey the truth of the scriptures in spite of your circumstances! Of all of the world’s religions, Christainity is the only one that offers deliverance from sin, judgment, and hell. You can’t deliver yourself…let Jesus deliver you!
