Yesterday’s devotional had the same title or theme as of today’s sermon. In it, we covered the details and context of today’s text 1 Corinthians 1:23. I purposely left out these sermons so I could share them and the above quote with you today. I sincerely hope it edifies you and glorifies God.
“Whatever others may do, we preach Christ crucified, we dare not, we cannot, and we will not alter the great subject matter of our preaching, Jesus Christ, and Him crucified."
“But we preach Christ crucified.”
1 Corinthians 1:23
NO. 3218 / A SERMON / PUBLISHED ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1910 DELIVERED BY C. H. SPURGEON/ AT THE METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE, NEWINGTON / ON LORD’S-DAY EVENING, AUGUST 23, 1863
Let me very briefly tell you what I believe preaching Christ and him crucified is. My friends, I do not believe it is preaching Christ and him crucified, to give people a batch of philosophy every Sunday morning and evening, and neglect the truths of this Holy Book. I do not believe it is preaching Christ and him crucified, to leave out the main cardinal doctrines of the Word of God, and preach a religion which is all a mist and a haze, without any definite truths whatever. I take it that man does not preach Christ and him crucified, who can get through a sermon without mentioning Christ’s name once; nor does that man preach Christ and him crucified, who leaves out the Holy Spirit’s work, who never says a word about the Holy Ghost, so that indeed the hearers might say, “We do not so much as know whether there be a Holy Ghost.”
“But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” — 1 Corinthians 1: 23- 24.
