“We, who are the advocates of the truth, are often very poor pleaders; we spoil our cause by the words we use; but it is a mercy that the brief is in the hand of a special pleader, who will advocate successfully, and overcome the sinner’s opposition.”

Charles Spurgeon in his sermon, The Comforter.

Isn’t it amazing how the Holy Spirit uses the fumbled words of our awkward attempts to explain the glorious gospel to penetrate the hearts of men.

    There is a wonderful 3 min. video of Spurgeon’s words about Immanuel, God With Us. Christmas is over in the minds of many, but we are still in the Twelve Days of Christmas leading to Epiphany. This video shines beautiful light in the darkness!
