THE One Topic

The one topic of every Sabbath day in this place is Jesus Christ crucified. I have other things to say unto you, but this is repeated over and over again; and you are told without ceasing that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, and that “whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” Notwithstanding all this, up to this moment many of you refuse to trust him, you “stumble at the word being disobedient,” and you thus make the rock of salvation to be a rock of offense to you. If you deny it I will ask you, why then have you not accepted him for your Saviour? Why are you still alienated in your hearts from him? Perhaps your reply is that you do not think of these things. Is this, then, your conduct towards the dying Saviour; that you will not even think of him? Is he nothing to you? Do you despise his blood?… Look now on him whom you have pierced! Can you in his presence continue your rejection? Will you still bar your hearts against him? Will you now say to him to his face, “Son of God, bleeding for human sin, we will not trust thee. Son of man, dying in the stead of sinners, we will not yield to thee?”

―C.H. Spurgeon

delivered on June 9, 1872
