Sermon Illustrations

Charles Haddon Spurgeon: ‘That the king should say to the petitioner, “Bring your case before me, and I will grant your desire,” is kindness. But for Him to say, “I will be your secretary. I will write out your petition for you. I will put it into proper words so that your petition shall be framed acceptably,” this is goodness at its utmost stretch. But this is precisely what the Holy [Spirit] does for us poor, ignorant, wavering, weak men.’
