    Lightbulb The Heart of the Gospel by Spurgeon

    The Heart of the Gospel
    Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)

    “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”—2 Corinthians 5:21

    The heart of the gospel is redemption, and the essence of redemption is the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ. They who preach this truth preach the gospel, in whatever else they may be mistaken; but they who preach not the atonement, whatever else they declare, have missed the soul and substance of the divine message.

    In these days, I feel bound to go over and over again the elementary truths of the gospel. In peaceful times, we may feel free to make excursions into interesting districts of truth that lie far afield; but now we must stay at home and guard the hearths and homes of the church by defending the first principles of the faith.

    In this age, there have risen up in the church itself men who speak perverse things. There be many that trouble us with their philosophies and novel interpretations, whereby they deny the doctrines they profess to teach and undermine the faith they are pledged to maintain.

    It is well that some of us, who know what we believe and have no secret meanings for our words, should just put our foot down and maintain our standing, holding forth the Word of life and plainly declaring the foundation truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ…I have no desire to be famous for anything but preaching the old gospel.

    There are plenty who can fiddle to you the new music. It is for me to have no music at any time but that which is heard in heaven: “Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood…to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever!” (Rev 1:5-6)…

    Heb 2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

    It was planned before the world was created.

    Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

    The Cross represents the Chromosome.

    We have Forty Six of them...



    Notice what Jesus said...

    John 2:20-21
    "Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?"

    "But he spake of the temple of his body"

    Yes, the Heart of God's Teachings is Salvation.

    But...

    Did you know that God gave us a sneak peak at how it would be done?
