Charles Spurgeon – Our Fallenness Apart From Christ

16 Sep


7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. – Romans 8:7

The fall of Adam was OUR fall; we fell in and with him; we were equal sufferers; it is the ruin of our own house that we lament, it is the destruction of our own city that we bemoan, when we stand and see written in lines too plain for us to mistake their meaning, “The carnal mind”—that very self-same mind which was once holiness, and has now become carnal—“is enmity against God.” May God help me this morning, solemnly to prefer this indictment against you all! Oh! that the Holy Spirit may so convince us of sin, that we may unanimously plead “guilty” before God.

~Charles Spurgeon~

The New Park Street Pulpit Sermons, Vol. I (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1855), 149. Vol. 1, Sermon No. 20; Titled: The Carnal Mind Enmity Against God; Delivered on Sabbath Morning, April 22nd, 1855.

    I’m currently reading “All of Grace” by Spurgeon and one thing that strikes me is that it often sounds like he assumes that his reader/audience is struggling with the guilt of their sin and unworthiness to come to God or to be forgiven. Oh, that more people today had a true sense of their own sinfulness – oh, that I did! May He bring each of us to see the depth of our sin so that we can see and appreciate His far-reaching of grace!
