Living the Cross Centered Life Quotes - Day Twenty

From Living the Cross Centered Life, by C.J. Mahaney:

One Sunday morning, Charles Spurgeon was the guest preacher at a church in a country town in eastern England. Seated behind him was his grandfather, who was also a preacher. Spurgeon was speaking that day on Ephesians 2:8—“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”

As Spurgeon carefully explained this glories gospel of grace, now and again he would hear the encouraging voice of his grandfather behind him, saying gently, “Good! Good!” At one point, he even heard this gentle prod from the old man’s voice: “Tell them that again, Charles.”

And of course, Spurgeon did indeed “tell them that again.”

Most likely you’re no stranger to the gospel of grace and the basic truths of the cross of Christ.

This book, however, is an opportunity for us to follow the wise exhortation of Spurgeon’s granfather and to see and hear those wonderful realities again, more clearly than eve, so that God’s grace may astound us as never before” (p 42)
