    Charles Spurgeon on:    

We say that Christ so died that He infallibly secured the salvation of a multitude that no man can number, who through Christ's death not only may be saved, but are saved, must be saved, and cannot by any possibility run the hazard of being anything but saved.

    Topics: Salvation

When a man is saved by divine grace, he is not wholly cleansed from the corruption of his heart. When we believe in Jesus Christ all our sins are pardoned; yet the power of sin, albeit that it is weakened and kept under by the dominion of the new-born nature which God doth infuse into our souls, doth not cease, but still tarrieth in us, and will do so to our dying day.

    Topics: Salvation, The Heart

Some Christians overlook the blessing of sanctification, and yet to a thoroughly renewed heart this is one of the sweetest gifts of the covenant. If we could be saved from wrath, and yet remain unregenerate, impenitent sinners, we should not be saved as we desire, for we mainly and chiefly pant to be saved from sin and led in the way of holiness.

    Topics: Scripture

I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to Him.

    Topics: Self-denial, Holiness

You are not mature if you have a high esteem of yourself. He who boasts in himself is but a babe in Christ, if indeed he be in Christ at all. Young Christians may think much of themselves. Growing Christians think themselves nothing. Mature Christians know that they are less than nothing. The more holy we are, the more we mourn our infirmities, and the humbler is our estimate of ourselves.

    Topics: Self-esteem, Boasting

Self-love is, no doubt, the usual foundation of human jealousy...the fear lest another should by any means supplant us.

    Topics: Self-love, Jealousy
    Source: A Jealous God, Sermon 502, March 29, 1863.

The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.

    Topics: Self-righteousness

Beware of self-righteousness. The black devil of licentiousness destroys his hundreds, but the white devil of self-righteousness destroys his thousands.

    Topics: Self-righteousness
