Today in Church History – June 7, 1891

On June 7, 1891 Chalres Spurgeon preached his final sermon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. His sermon closed with the following words:

“These forty years and more have I served Him, blessed be His name! and I have had nothing but love from Him. I would be glad to continue yet another forty years in the same dear service here below, if so it pleased Him.

His service is life, peace, joy. Oh, that you would enter on it at once. God help you to enlist under the banner of Jesus even this day. Amen.”

Spurgeon fell ill later this same day, never to fully recover. Spurgeon would live on for nearly another 7 months. The Lord called him home around midnight, January 31, 1892.
