From the Writings of Charles H. Spurgeon

"A record of combat with sin and of labour for the Lord." C. H. Spurgeon

This tab contains a daily devotion from the pen and heart of Charles H. Spurgeon. We entitled it Sword and Trowel but these devotions are culled from a variety of Spurgeon publications.

Sword and the Trowel was the monthly magazine edited by Charles Spurgeon who was known as the "Prince of Preachers." He was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. Spurgeon was a prolific author of sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns. 

Morning and Evening: a further compilation of devotional readings by Spurgeon.

Established and Kept

But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 (ESV) Men are often as devoid of reason as of faith.

Fear to Fear

Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord. Jeremiah 1:8 (ESV) Whenever fear comes in and makes us falter, we are in danger of falling into sin.

I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. John 12:46 (ESV) This world is dark as midnight; Jesus has come that by faith we may have light and may no longer sit in the gloom which covers all the rest of mankind....
