Are we imposters?
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) is considered the “Prince of Preachers.”
This quote from Spurgeon on being a missionary is a rather strong statement; wouldn’t you say so?
What did he mean?
I think he meant the kinds of things I wrote about in this article: 4 Great Questions to Ignite Passion for Evangelism in a Lost World
Here’s a quick summary:
Why did Jesus come to earth? Jesus said, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” (Luke 19:10)What is our purpose on earth? Jesus said, “As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” (John 20:21b KJV)
We have the same purpose as Jesus—reaching the lost.
I think Spurgeon got it right.
What do you think?
