When Christ Died On The Cross, Our Hopes Began – Hope, Assurance And Comfort Quotes – Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The iron bolt which so mysteriously fastens the door of hope and holds our spirits in gloomy prison, needs a heavenly hand to push it back.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Hope itself is like a star- not to be seen in the sunshine of prosperity and only to be discovered in the night of adversity.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Of all the things in the world to be dreaded, despair is the chief. When a man is in the depths of despair, he is ready for all sorts of sins. When fear discourages him action is dangerous. But when fear has weakened him and his conscience is powerless to guide him, the vultures circle him waiting for their prey. As long as a man has hope for himself you may have hope for him.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“When Christ died on the cross, our hopes began. When He arose, they were confirmed. When He ascended on high, they began to be fulfilled. When He comes a second time, they will be realized.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We need winds and tempests to exercise our faith, to tear off the rotten bough of self-dependence, and to root us more firmly in Christ. The day of evil reveals to us the value of our glorious hope.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“There is no hope for you but in Christ. Rest assured that all the mercy of God is concentrated in the Cross. I hear some talk about the uncovenanted mercies of God—there is no such things. The mercies of God are all emptied out into the Covenant. God has put all His grace into the Person of Christ and you shall have none elsewhere. Trust, then, in Christ—so you shall be blessed, but you shall be blessed nowhere else.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Grace within us will employ prayer, and faith, and hope, and love, to cast out the evil; it takes unto it the “whole armour of God,” and wrestles earnestly. These two opposing natures will never cease to struggle so long as we are in this world.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’s blood and righteousness: I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesu’s name.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Whatever troubles come, let us play the man; let us show that we are not such little children as to be cast down by what may happen in this poor fleeting state of time. Our country is Immanuel’s land, our hope is above the sky, and therefore, calm as the summer’s ocean; we will see the wreck of everything earth-born, and yet rejoice in the God of our salvation.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The eclipse of your faith, the darkness of your mind, the fainting of your hope, all these things are but parts of God’s method of making you ripe for the great inheritance upon which you shall soon enter.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Waiting trains our grace. Waiting tries our faith. Therefore, wait on in hope, because even though the promise seems to be delayed, it can never come too late.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“It is of no use to hope that we shall be well rooted if no rough winds pass over us. Those old gnarlings on the root of the oak tree, and those strange twistings of the branches, all tell of the many storms that have swept over it, and they are also indicators of the depth into which the roots have forced their way. So the Christian is made strong, and firmly rooted by all the trials and storms of life. Shrink not then from the tempestuous winds of trial, but take comfort, believing that by their rough discipline God is fulfilling this benediction to you.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If I am not today all that I hope to be, yet I see Jesus, and that assures me that I shall one day be like Him.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“And so my Master, who is the great ark of salvation, did not come into this world to save only a few little sinners. “He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him.” Look on him there. See him on the cross, in extreme agony, enduring countless griefs and torments, and sweating in agony, all because of his love for you who were his enemies. Trust him. Trust him, because there is hope, there is restoration.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The bleeding, dying, rising Saviour, is the only star of hope to a sinner. Oh for grace to come now and drink, ere the sun sets upon the year’s last day!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Moses grew weary, and then his friends assisted him. When at any time your prayer flags, let faith support one hand, and let holy hope uplift the other, and prayer seating itself upon the stone of Israel, the rock of our salvation, will persevere and prevail.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Our country is Immanuel’s land, our hope is above the sky, and therefore, calm as the summer’s ocean; we will see the wreck of everything earthborn, and yet rejoice in the God of our salvation.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Forgive, as you hope to be forgiven.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“One of these days you who are now a ‘babe’ in Christ shall be a ‘father’ in the church. Hope for this great thing; but hope for it as a gift of grace, and not as the wages of work, or as the product of your own energy.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If thou canst wait for Christ, and be patient in the hope of having fellowship with him at some distant season, thou wilt never have fellowship at all; for the heart that is fitted for communion is a hungering and a thirsting heart.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The delight which the mariner feels, when, after having been tossed about for many a day, he steps again upon the solid shore, is the satisfaction of a Christian when amidst all the changes of this troublous life, he rests the foot of his faith upon this truth—‘I am the Lord, I change not.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the windows which hope has opened.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, “You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.” My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of the will.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, He is my righteousness.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Experienced Christian, boast not in your experience; you will trip yet if you look away from him who is able to keep you from falling. Ye whose love is fervent, whose faith is constant, whose hopes are bright, say not, “We shall never sin,” but rather cry, “Lead us not into temptation.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If you will select me the grossest specimen of humanity, if he be but born of woman, I will have hope of him yet, because Jesus Christ is come to seek and to save sinners.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The day of evil reveals to us the value of our glorious hope.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, he is my righteousness. My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what he has done, and in what he is now doing for me.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“O Jesus, what a comfort it is that thou hast pleaded our cause against our unseen enemies; countermined their mines, and unmasked their ambushes. Here is a matter for joy, gratitude, hope, and confidence.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“And it seems to me I can, it seems to me I can open the little wicket gate, and cry, “There is hope!” The one who said there is no hope is a liar and a murderer from the beginning, and the father of lies. There is hope because Jesus died. There is hope everywhere except in the infernal lake of fire.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Value the blood of Christ as the foundation of your hope, but never speak disparagingly of the work of the Spirit which is your meetness for the inheritance of the saints in light. This day let us so live as to manifest the work of the Triune God in us.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“It is of no use to hope that we shall be well rooted—if no rough winds pass over us.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Men are in a restless pursuit after satisfaction in earthly things. They will exhaust themselves in the deceitful delights of sin, and, finding them all to be vanity and emptiness, they will become very perplexed and disappointed. But they will continue their fruitless search. Though wearied, they still stagger forward under the influence of spiritual madness, and though there is no result to be reached except that of everlasting disappointment, yet they press forward. They have no forethought for their eternal state; the present hour absorbs them. They turn to another and another of earth’s broken cisterns, hoping to find water where not a drop was ever discovered yet.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“When Christ died on the cross our hopes began, when he rose they were confirmed, when he went up on high they began to be fulfilled, when he comes a second time they will be realized.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“A man might as well hope to fight a swarm of flies with a sword as to master his own thoughts when they are set on by the devil.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The eclipse of your faith, the darkness of your mind, the fainting of your hope, all these things are but parts of God’s method of making you ripe for the great inheritance upon which you shall soon enter. These trials are for the testing and strengthening of your faith–they are waves that wash you further upon the rock–they are winds which waft your ship the more swiftly towards the desired haven.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We will this year gather celestial fruits on earthly ground, where faith and hope have made the desert like the garden of the Lord.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Blessed be His name that He has arranged that one Person of the Sacred Trinity should undertake this office of Comforter, for no man could ever perform its duties. We might as well hope to be the Savior as to be the Comforter of the heartbroken.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If I had to sum up the gospel I should have to tell you certain facts: Jesus, the Son of God, became man; he was born of the virgin Mary; lived a perfect life; was falsely accused of men; was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God; from whence he shall also come to judge the quick and the dead. This is one of the elementary truths of our gospel; we believe in the resurrection of the dead, the final judgment, and the life everlasting.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Oh, the wondrous power in the scripture to create a soul of hope within the ribs of despair and bring eternal light into the darkness that has made a long midnight in the inmost soul!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Nothing is more deadly than self-righteousness, or more hopeful than contrition.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“It is always beneficial to praise the Lord; it cheers the day and brightens the night; it lightens toil and softens sorrow; and over earthly gladness it sheds a sanctifying radiance which makes it less liable to blind us with its glare. Have we not something to sing about at this moment? Can we not weave a song out of our present joys, or our past deliverances, or our future hopes.”
