Lectures to my Students (Je vous ferai pêcheurs d'hommes)
Charles Spurgeon was both a giant and eminently human. In the midst of the students of his Pastoral School, he discovers himself and lets see the bottom of his heart.
In these “Friday afternoon” moments, he seeks to ignite these young servants of God. He knows that hard battles await them and that a calling as high as theirs is not for the lukewarm.
So he plunges his verve into his concern for the quality of the interior life of the man of God and the effectiveness of his presentation of the message. It examines the intimate relationship between human life and the impact of the artwork.
As we envy the listeners of the time! But, like Gideon, he only wants to keep God's chosen warriors. True success in ministry comes only through total submission to the will and truth of God.
The same Lord still calls and sends workers into his vineyard, and his servant still shows the way.
