Charles Spurgeon – Behold Christ and Be Conformed

21 Mar

charles-spurgeon2“Well,” say some, “we have proceeded so far, what next shall we do? We know we have an interest in him, but we are still sensible of manifold deficiencies. Next then, let me entreat you to study Christ’s character. This poor Bible is become an almost obsolete book, even with some Christians. There are so many magazines, periodicals, and such like ephemeral productions, that we are in danger of neglecting to search the Scriptures. Christian, wouldst thou know thy Master? Look at him. There is a wondrous power about the character of Christ, for the more you regard it the more you will be conformed to it. I view myself in the glass, I go away, and forget what I was. I behold Christ, and I become like Christ.

    “I behold Christ, and I become like Christ.” Amen. Unlike so many Christians today, Charles Spurgeon did so http://spurgeonwarquotes.wordpress.com/
