Come Receive from the King

Spurgeon’s church served communion the night he preached on Hebrews 7 – and so he concluded his sermon with these words – 

But when you come to the feasts of love, drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved. There never was a Christian man that was too happy in God. There never was a believer that was too peaceful, too serene, too confident, too hopeful. You cannot drink too much of this heavenly nectar. Oh, that you would but have grace to take in all that you may have! I know what you will do. You will come to-night into my Lord’s treasury, and he will say, “Take what you will.” There will be mints of gold and silver before you, and you will look all round and take up some brass farthing or other and say, “Bless the Lord for this!” Such gratitude is right enough. Bless the Lord for anything. At the same time, why not take something better? “Oh, I have been a mourner,” you say, “all my days.” Whose fault is that? “Oh, but I have never had any great light or any great joy.” Whose fault is that? Is it not your own?”

Brothers and Sisters - do not be like the elder brother in the parable of the Prodigal Son – all righteousness and no joy – all seriousness but with an attitude towards your Father for His lavish graciousness – come and eat and drink – come and have your fill – you have been to the Table before, but of course, you need much, much more…
