  1. I love Spurgeon's actual quote concerning Saturday night (sermon-prep) fever:

    "I believe that almost any Saturday in my life I make enough outlines of sermons, if I felt at liberty to preach them, to last me for a month, but I no more dare to use them than an honest mariner would run to shore a cargo of contraband goods. Themes flit before the mind one after another, like images passing across the photographer's lens, but until the mind is like the sensitive plate, which retains the picture, the subjects are valueless to us."

    I would love to have those outlines!

  2. There was no one like Spurgeon, that's for sure!
