“Stand up for every word of His laws” by Charles H. Spurgeon

“It is, of course, the most easy to flesh and blood to deal in generalities, to denounce sectarianism, and claim to be of an ultra-Catholic spirit; but though rough and rugged, it is required of the loyal servant of King Jesus to maintain all His crown rights and stand up for every word of His laws. Friends chide us and foes abhor us when we are very jealous for the Lord God of Israel, but what do these things matter if the Master approves?”

–Charles H. Spurgeon, as quoted in Iain Murray, The Forgotten Spurgeon (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1966/1998), 17.
