Who am I?
I read Pilgrim?s Progress more than hundred times,
I married with the most beautiful wife in the world, although you may not agree,
I had 20,000 volumes in my bookshelf and I read them all,
I am a Baptist preacher, but never ordained,
I am counted as the best preacher yet I never went to the seminary,
I look at myself as more of puritan than a Baptist,
I was born in England yet my ancestors are from Dutch,
I was born in June 19th, 1834,
I was told by my friend here, at heaven that I preached to the most people in earth,
I preached to 20, 200, 3,000, 12,000, 15,000, 50,000, and most 65,000 at once.
I built the church, schools for preachers, houses, helping-hands facil, and orphanage,
I have influenced to more great preachers than anybody after me, yet humbly claim,
?Oh God, this is thy first seal to my ministry!
Thou knowest I would rather be the means of saving the souls from death
than to be the greatest orator on earth!?
- Charles Haddon Spurgeon, ?the Shadow of the Broad Brim.?
In many school works often it?s hard to catch up with your passion for Christ. One of the thing that trying to pursue even during the course work is reading Biographies of the giants like Spurgeon(Broad Bim), Luther(Here I Stand), Judson(Golden Shore), Finney(Like Passion), Criswell(Standing Promise) and many others.
Although my favorite is form Bainton, of course, R.Ellsworth Day is good too. And I can really say this generation is the one we really have to look back into the history and find what is the true believe and how much we are far form it. Lest or deeds do not become wasted in bema. And I believe the above very words from Spurgeon depicts so well what kind of heart we might miss from this generation as a prospect pastor.
Even so, Come, LORD Jesus. Amen Amen.
