Raise your hand if you are glad Charles Haddon Spurgeon accepted Jesus Christ on January 6, 1850? Mine is raised for sure. He was one of the most prolific writers and pastors of the 19th century and his pastorate of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London for 38 years made a huge impact. This is a picture of the church before it burned in the 1890s. In the freezing cold on this night in 1850, Spurgeon heard the message of God’s love through Jesus Christ and later said: “I can never tell you how it was but I no sooner saw whom I was to believe than I also understood what it was to believe and I did believe in one moment.” Be sure to check back on January 31st for another Spurgeon update.
