Who is the Greatest?
It was a cold winter’s day in the year 1850, when a young man went into a church, only to escape the bad weather. But he got more than he planned on for going in there! The first words he heard were those of an elderly preacher calling out “Look unto me and be saved.”
The preacher had read Isaiah 45:22 and the young man was Charles Spurgeon. Charles had heard the gospel message before from his parents at home. He knew he was a great sinner and that Jesus was the only one who could save him from his sin. From that day onward, he would serve the Lord Jesus Christ. And sooner than anyone expected, he became a preacher of the gospel of grace.
Many in England and America looked up to Charles as the greatest preacher they had ever heard. But Charles knew there was no greatness in himself and that only Jesus is The Great One. He never thought of himself as more than a needy sinner who was privileged to bring the gospel of God’s grace to others.
