There are certain pastors and preachers whose perspective on God’s Word have made a great impact on my life. Reading their books, sermons, or commentaries brings amazing clarity to God’s truth. One such man is Charles Spurgeon. He’s been dead for over 100 years, but his words still pack a pretty potent biblical punch.
Here is the quote from one of his sermons that I used in my sermon this morning on John 10:11-18.
“There is more in Jesus, the good Shepherd, than you can pack away in a shepherd. He is the good, the great, the chief Shepherd; but he is much more. Emblems to set him forth may be multiplied as the drops of the morning, but the whole multitude will fail to reflect all his brightness. Creation is too small a frame in which to hang his likeness. Human thought is too contracted, human speech too feeble, to set him forth to the full…He is inconceivably above our conceptions, unutterably above our utterances.”
This quote blew me away. I hope it challenges you, as it does me, to know and serve the Good Shepherd.
