“I Never Thought of That!” - THE QUOTABLE SPURGEON

“I Never Thought of That!”
The Quotable Spurgeon


The Lord Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled) … The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear. Isaiah 2:12, 17

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24

Is it not foolish to be living in this world without a thought of what you will do at the end of it? A man goes into an inn, and as soon as he sits down he begins to order his wine, his dinner, his bed; there is no delicacy in season that he forgets to order. He stays at the inn for some time. By and by, the bill comes due, and it takes him by surprise. “I never thought of that—I never thought of that!”
“Why,” says the landlord, “here is a man who is either a born fool or else a knave. What! Never thought of reckoning—never thought of settling with me!”
After this fashion too many live. They eat, and drink, and sin, but they forget the inevitable hereafter, when for all the deeds done in the body, the Lord will bring us into judgment.

Before salvation there must be a conviction of sins.
 Conviction of sin is a function of the Holy Ghost aided by hearing the gospel.
