The life of Charles Spurgeon isn't really that extraordinary, he became a pastor, married and had children, but what God did through him, really was extraordinary. Spurgeon suffered greatly from depression as well as exhaustion. And there is no doubt where his strength came from. It was from the Lord and Spurgeon would be the first to admit that.
I so highly respect Spurgeon because of his deep devotion to the Lord and also for his commitment to the truth. A commitment that caused him great adversities and deep depressions. But he keep going with the strength of God lifting him up.
I'll leave you with this quote I found at the beginning of his autobiography:
"We want again Luthers, Calvins, Bunyans, Whitefields, men fit to mark eras, whose names breathe terror in our foemen's ears. We have dire need of such. Whence will they come to us? They are the gifts of Jesus Christ to the Church, and will come in due time. He has power to give us back again a golden age of preachers, a time as fertile as great divines and mighty ministers as was the Puritan age, and when the good old truth is once more preached by men whose lips are touched as with a live coal from the alter, this shall be the instrument in the hand of the Spirit for bringing about a great and thorough revival of religion in the land.
I do not look for any other means of converting men beyond the simple preaching of the gospel and the opening of men's ears to hear it. The moment the Church of God shall despise the pulpit, God will despise her. It has been through the ministry that the Lord has always been pleased to revive and bless His church."
Spurgeon was one of them. A great preacher for truth, whom God used to bless His Church. : )
