QUOTE (Charles H. Spurgeon) – April 19

April 19, 2014

Spurgeon at age 23.

“My sins were the scourges which lacerated those blessed shoulders, and crowned with thorn those bleeding brows: my sins cried “Crucify him! crucify him!” and laid the cross upon his gracious shoulders. His being led forth to die is sorrow enough for one eternity: but my having been his murderer, is more, infinitely more, grief than one poor fountain of tears can express.”
~ Charles H. Spurgeon

In honor of C.H. Spurgeon, known as the prince of preachers, who was called, at the age of 19, to pastor the New Park Chapel in London on this day in 1854.
