We’ve been looking at I Corinthians 2 this week and today’s devotional is an interesting bit of autobiography which confirms what is taught there. Enjoy and understand. Lord bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Corinthians 2:14
“Though I heard the gospel from my childhood, and was brought up upon the very knee of piety, I did not understand what I must do to be saved till I heard that text preached from — ‘Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth.’ I do not believe that my ignorance was the fault of the preacher. It was certainly not the fault of my father, or my mother, and not the fault of the Bible, which I had read through again and again; but it was the fault of these dim eyes, that I could not see.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1891), p. 389]
