Sometimes we run across statements, sermons and quotes that hit us in our souls. This is an excerpt of an excerpt of a sermon preached by CH Spurgeon when he was only 20 years old. I have taken it from the book Knowing God by JI Packer. Although I am usually more than willing to add my own take on things I read, this needs no other words.. In fact I would only lessen it if I even were to try.
“Oh there is in Contemplating Christ, a balm for every wound; in musing on the Father, there is a quietus for every grief; and in the influence of the Holy Ghost, there is a balsam for every sore. Would you lose your sorrow? Would you drown your cares? Then go, plunge yourself in the Godhead’s deepest sea; be lost in its immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest, refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can so comfort the soul; so calm the swelling billows of sorrow and grief; so speak winds to a trial, as a devout musing upon the subject of the Godhead.”
