Charles Spurgeon – The Prince of Preachers
Charles Spurgeon was a simple country lad who went on to become one of the best-known preachers in London, Europe and the world.
Caught in a snowstorm one night Charles snuck into the back pew of a dusty country chapel. He had no idea that as well as escaping the freezing temperatures outside he would be faced with the most important decision of his life.
A wrinkled old man started to preach. Charles thought it would be a thoroughly boring service – but with the words “Look unto Jesus and be saved!” a cold and grumpy teenager began to realise that God’s word can change you, completely!
The simple country lad became a man who mixed with princes and beggars. He spoke words that touched the hearts of rich and poor alike. His fame became so widespread that it is reputed that even Queen Victoria attended one of his sermons. The Queen of England came to listen to the Prince of Preachers. But Charles was more concerned about the King of Kings – Jesus Christ.
