Based on 1 Timothy 6:12: “Fight the good fight of faith,” this was C H Spurgeon’s final address to the students at the Pastors’ College in 1891. Identifying the great foes to be false doctrine, worldliness, and sin, he focuses on the Bible as our armoury, the sole authority for believers in all things, the Church as all being involved in the battle, and the Holy Spirit, upon whom we depend entirely for success in the warfare.
The preaching ministry of C H Spurgeon saw thousands converted and he also worked tirelessly to inspire preachers to be valiant for the truth through the Pastors’ College. He knew much of the warfare of which he spoke; personal health challenges and his costly stand against doctrinal decline and compromise gave him insights which he shares here.
The clarion call to active service in The Greatest Fight in the World is as relevant today as when first delivered.
