3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

Spurgeon in his commentary on Ps. 126 said, “The church must not only keep this seed in the storehouse, for such as come to inquire for it, but must also send her sowers forth to cast it among those who are ignorant of its value, or too indifferent to ask for it.

“The church must not sit weeping because men will not apply to her, but must go forth and bear the precious seed to the unwilling, the careless, the prejudiced and the profligate.

“The promise belongs to those sowing in tears. When a man’s heart is so stirred that he weeps over the sins of others, he is elected to usefulness. Winners of souls are first weepers for souls. As there is no birth without labor, there is no spiritual harvest without breaking ground and sowing.”
