Quotations from "The Salt-cellars", C.H.Spurgeon

If Christ be so sweet to thee, sin will be so bitter to thee.

If Christ lights the candle, Satan cannot blow it out.

Jacob saw angels ascending and descending, but none standing still.

Jesus Christ is light to the eye, honey to the taste, music to the ears, and joy to the heart.

Jesus Christ to a believer is fairer than the fairest, sweeter than the sweetest, nearer than the nearest, dearer than the dearest, richer than the richest, and better than the best.

Jesus has many lovers of His crown, but few bearer of His cross.

Jesus lived that He might die, and died that we might live.

It is the devil’s masterpiece to make us think well of ourselves.

If you would know the heart of your sin, you must know the sin of your heart.

If you are God’s child, behave yourself accordingly.

If in God you delight, you shall have songs in the night.

I have a great need of Christ; but I have a great Christ for my need.

Faith sees God, and God sees faith.

Faith honours Christ, and Christ honours faith.

Fiery trials make golden Christians.

Faith’s eye sees in the dark.

Bless God heartily though He afflicts you heavily.

Be all for Christ, since He is all to thee.

Begin the year with godly fear.
