    As a pastor, everything about Spurgeon inspires me!!! Perhaps the thing that inspires me most, however, was how the significant physical suffering that both he and his wife, Susannah, endured did not deter him (or her!) from focusing on Christ, from performing the ministry to which he’d been called, and from ultimately becoming one of the most fruitful and influential preachers in all of history! How thankful I am that the Lord blessed us with Spurgeon!
