Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) is best remembered for his thirty years as preacher and pastor of London's Metropolitan Tabernacle, where he preached to thousands every week. He had a profound influence on his times, and that influence has continued over the hundred plus years since his death through his legacy of writings. Tens of thousands of Christians over the last century have begun their days with Spurgeon's Morning by Morning: a daily devotional that offers spiritual wisdom and guidance as fresh today as when he first wrote them. Morning by Morning offers the best of Spurgeon's timeless insight and wise counsel on every area of the Christian walk.
I chanced upon this daily devotional in a local bookshop. I didn't know it was that good. I just bought it because I needed something extra for the morning before going off to work. As I began going through it, I realised how inspiring, motivating and crystal clear Spurgeon was able to explain some of the things about God. Along the way, it gave me many fresh revelations; things that I accepted previously as a Christian but never really understood why. As mentioned, many of the devotionals were inspiring and motivating. I really felt that God was speaking to me so lovingly through Spurgeon's devotionals. I'm not the only one who felt this way. Many of my friends and colleagues whom I shared the devotionals with felt the same way. Spurgeon's devotionals brought them so much closer to God and made some of them so much more passionate about God. This is definitely the first-choice daily devotional to go through first thing after we wake up every morning.
