Recollect to go home and read your Bibles

I have done. Let us go home and practice what we have heard. I have heard of a woman, who, when she was asked what she remembered of the minister’s sermon, said, “I don’t recollect anything of it. It was about short weights and bad measures, and I didn’t recollect anything but to go home and burn the bushel.” So if you will remember to go home and burn the bushel, if you will recollect to go home and read your Bibles, I shall have said enough. And may God, in his infinite mercy, when you read your Bibles, pour into your soul, the illuminating rays of the Sun of Righteousness, by the agency of the ever-adorable Spirit; then you will read to your profit and to your soul’s salvation.

We may say of THE BIBLE:-

God’s cabinet of revealed counsel ‘tis!

Where weal and woe, are ordered so

That every man may know which shall be his;

Unless his own mistake, false application make

It is the index to eternity.

He cannot miss of endless bliss

That takes this chart to steer by

Nor can he be mistook, that speaketh by this book.

It is the book of God.

What if I should Say, God of books, let him that looks

Angry at that expression, as too bold,

His thoughts in silence smother, till he find such another.”

Charles H. Spurgeon- The Bible, A Sermon Delivered on Sabbath Morning March 18, 1855
