Spurgeon quote christian so foolish pleasure to him. He is the Mercy Seat, the Propitiatory where God meets with us and hears our prayers, so that we always pray in the society of Christ. Why not? There He hangs upon the cross! It becomes as true to you as if God had spoken it for the first time this very day, and you were the person to whom it was addressed It will increase, rather than diminish our misery if we hear that others are saved as long as we ourselves remain unsaved. I shall not mind if you have many of them if each one leads you to prayer. And I have been glad to have it so, for, verily, God is altogether above our comprehension and none of us can speak of Him as He deserves to be spoken of! Keep your eyes and ears open, and you will hear and see angels. There is no fact in mathematics which has been more fully demonstrated than this fact in experience that God hears prayer. Yet, notwithstanding this, it is our firm conviction that there are many among them who are the sons and daughters of God and who shall yet be brought near to Him. You must know Christ and love Christ, or else many of the expressions in this Book will seem to you but as an idle tale. If the Lord sees that we are willing to stoop to the very least of His people, He will be sure to bless us.
