Christ is Greater

C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)"Christ is a greater Christ than you think him to be when your thoughts are at the greatest. My Master is more able to pardon than you to sin, more able to forgive than you to transgress. My Master is more ready to supply than you are to ask, and ten thousand times more prepared to save than you are to be saved. Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. Your highest estimates will dishonor him; when you put the crown on his head, you will only crown him with silver when he deserves gold; when you sing the best of your songs, you will only give him poor, discordant music, compared with what he deserves, but oh! do believe in him, that he is a great Christ, a mighty Savior. Great sinner, come and do him honor by trusting in him as a great Savior." —C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)

Excerpt taken from a sermon titled "The Unsearchable Riches of Christ" Delivered on April 14th, 1867 by C. H. Spurgeon
