Two Most Impressive Evangelists

“I do not desire for any unconverted person here that he should be ill, but if that should be the way to make him think, repent, and belive, I could earnestly pray for it. I believe the Lord has often preached to men in hospitals who never heard him in churches and chapels; fever and cholera have been heard by those whom ministers could not reach. If we could banish pain and sickness from the world, it may be we should be robbing righteousness of two of her most impressive evangelists.  What Jonah was to Nineveh, sickness has been to many a man.  Like Elijah also, it has cried in the soul, ‘Choose ye this day whom ye will serve.’  Disease has been a grim orator for God, and with an eloquence not to be resisted, it has made the hearts of men to bow before its message.”  –C.H. Spurgeon “Sermons, Vol. 10” p. 159

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.
