“Whenever you preach, tell them something!” by Charles H. Spurgeon

“Emotion, doubtless, is a very proper thing in the pulpit, and the feeling, the pathos, the power of heart, are good and grand things in the right place; but do also use your brains a little, do tell us something when you stand up to preach the everlasting gospel.

The sermons that are most likely to convert people seem to me to be those that are full of truth, truth about the fall, truth about the law, truth about human nature, and its alienation from God, truth about Jesus Christ, truth about the Holy Spirit, truth about the Everlasting Father, truth about the new birth, truth about obedience to God, and how we learn it, and all such great verities.

Tell your hearers something, dear brethren, whenever you preach, tell them something, tell them something!”

–Charles H. Spurgeon, “Sermons Likely to Win Souls” in The Soul Winner.
