Spurgeon’s Last Words

From what I understand, these words were part of the last sermon that Charles Spurgeon ever delivered, shortly before God called him home at age 57.

Typically, the person’s last words indicate what was most important to him or her and what the hearers should take away as being that person’s chief priority.

In Spurgeon’s case, his last words were about the glory of Christ and how it was his desire that anyone hearing should come to faith in Jesus before they come to the end of their earthly lives.

I don’t know much about the life of Charles Spurgeon. I imagine he was far from perfect and had more than a few flaws and struggles, but I also imagine that the first words he heard after a lifetime of ministry were “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

May we strive to the same end as that of Spurgeon — so that everyone can know Jesus as we know Him, Companion, Faithful Friend, Brother, Savior, and Lord.
