I’m reading F. W. Boreham’s Mushrooms on the Moor this evening. He was a pastor but not a “preachy” writer. He possessed a unique style of writing. You can read his “blog” here Of course he has been dead for years, but you can sample his writings on the blog devoted to his writing. He attended Spurgeon’s Pastor’s School and was the last student interviewed personally by the great preacher.
I’m also enjoying this study of Spurgeon’s preaching by Zack Eswine. With every page I thank God for the great privilege He has given me to Herald the Word every week.
“Have you ever seen an assembly listening to an orator all unmoved and stolid? Suddenly the Holy Ghost has fallen on the speaker and the King Himself has been visibly set forth among them in the midst of the assembly and all have felt as if they could leap to their feet and cry, “Hallelujah, Hallelujah!” Then hearts beat fast, and souls leap high; for where Jesus is found His presence fills the place with delight.” (from a message by Charles Spurgeon on the Personality of the Holy Spirit).
I long for the King to show up when I preach. I love dear, benevolent, redeemer, King Jesus!
