Spurgeon on Memorization

Time Posted on May 25, 2014 User Bethany Meckle Comment 25 comments

“The Bible in the memory is better than the Bible in the book case.”

“Be walking Bibles.”

“It is well to have a good memory and that is the best memory which remembers what is best worth remembering.”

“A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”

“Holy Scripture requires searching—much of it can only be learned by careful study.”

“He who does not long to know more of Christ, knows nothing of Him yet.”

“It is needful to dwell on this head, because many Christians appear to think that if they are just believers, it is enough. We do not in business think it is enough if we barely escape bankruptcy. A man does not say, if his dear child has been ill in bed for  years, that it is quite enough so long as the child is alive. We do not think that of our own bodies, that so long as we can breathe it is enough.”

“Those who are never tried usually possess a poor, tottering faith but trial, especially persecution, is like the rough March wind which goes howling through the forest, and while the young oaks are almost torn up by the roots at first, it loosens the soil for them, and they send out more rootlets, till they get such a firm grip that they defy the hurricane. That which shakes them at first strengthens them afterwards.”

“Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strengths.”

“By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”

“Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.”

“Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.”

“We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in his service.”

“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.”

“All human books grow stale after a time - but with the Word of God the desire to study it increases, while the more you know of it the less you think you know.”

“The Book grows upon you: as you dive into its depths you have a fuller perception of the infinity which remains to be explored. You are still sighing to enjoy more of that which it is your bliss to taste.”

“Half our fears arise from neglect of the Bible.”

“The word of God is always most precious to the man who most lives upon it.”

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

For Comments on the Spurgeon Devotional

Time Posted on December 15, 2010 User River La Belle Comment 31 comments

As good as Spurgeon is, I haven't been reading the daily devotional nearly as often as I should. I read today's and was convicted about it, and now I am going to try to read the devotional for every day.

I thought it would be a good idea to have a blog post for the purpose of commenting on the devotional (because as good as Spurgeon is, there are bound to be TONS of comments. . . right?) . . . so here it is. :)
