He invites us to feast everyday!
Enjoy this wish from Spurgeon to you! We'll resume publishing in January. Feel like chatting with your fellow Spurgeon fans over the holidays? Visit us on our Facebook page.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We have nearly arrived at the great merry-making season of the year. On Christmas day we shall find all the world in England enjoying themselves with all the good cheer which they can afford. Servants of God, you who have the largest share in the person of him who was born at Bethlehem, I invite you to the best of all Christmas fare - to nobler food than makes the table groan - bread from heaven, food for your spirit. Behold, how rich and how abundant are the provisions, which God has made for the high festival which he would have his servants keep, not now and then, but all the days of their lives!
