All things to and for Christ

December 16, 2008 — Leave a comment

While studying for my message tomorrow night I ran across this quote from the Prince of Preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Easily the quote of the week for me:

If you make doctrine the main thing, you are very likely to grow narrow-minded. If you make your own experience the main thing, you will become gloomy and critical of others. If you make ordinances the main thing, you will be apt to grow merely formal. But you can never make too much of the living Christ Jesus. Remember that all things else are for his sake. Doctrines and ordinances are the planets, but Christ is the sun. Get to love him best of all.
