Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 188

TO YOUNG PEOPLE

To [Ministers’ Children].

MENTONE, 1890.

MY DEAR YOUNG FRIEND,—

I am anxious that the little ones should be saved. I heard a number of ministers pray for their dear boys and girls; and after they had done, I said to myself — “ I will write a letter to their children, and try to make them think about Jesus.” What a joy it would be if you, dear…. were, while yet a child to be saved by the Lord Jesus. He can wash away sin, and by His Holy Spirit, He can change the heart, and He can do it quite as easily in the young, as in the grown-up people. If we seek salvation by Jesus Christ, God will give it. In the Bible we are told to believe, and that is TRUST. We trust Jesus to save us, and He does save us. I want you to trust Him now. I hope you will have a long and useful life, and trust in Christ will be the sure way to help you year by year to live happily. But you may die while yet young, and then through faith in Jesus you will enter Heaven to be glorified in the Lord for ever. “They that seek Me early shall find Me.” That is the text for you. I hope you will seek at once, and find Jesus at once. I may never see you here, but I hope I shall meet you and your dear parents in the land of the blessed.

Yours with my best wishes,

C. H. SPURGEON.
