How Sorrow’s Tears Produce Joy

Thursday is for Discipleship

“I do not know when I am more perfectly happy than when I am weeping for sin at the foot of the cross.”

—C. H. Spurgeon

The quote is from a message number 3272 in the collected sermons of Spurgeon and is titled, “How to Become Full of Joy.” The message was delivered by Spurgeon on September 17, 1865 and was based on the the text of 1 John 1:4: “And these things write we unto you that your joy may be full.” (KJV)
