Diamonds Well Cut

“All sermons ought to be well considered and prepared by the preacher; and, as much as possible, every minister should, with much prayer for heavenly guidance, enter fully into his subject, exert all his mental faculties in original thinking, and gather together all the information within his reach. Viewing the whole matter from all quarters, the preacher should think it out, get it well masticated and digested; and having first fed upon the Word himself should then prepare the like nutriment for others. Our sermons should be our mental life-blood–the out-flow of our intellectual and spiritual vigour; or, to change the figure, they should be diamonds well cut and well set–precious, intrinsically, and bearing the marks of labour. God forbid that we should offer to the Lord that which costs us nothing.” –Charles H. Spurgeon “Lectures to My Students” p. 162

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
