The tabernacle of the Most High
“In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
Suggested Further Reading:
At last they come to these stones.
But how rough, how hard, how unhewn.
Yes, but these are the stones ordained of old in the decree, and these must be the stones, and none other.
There must be a change effected.
These must be brought in and shaped and cut and polished, and put into their places.
I see the workmen at their labour.
The great saw of the law cuts through the stone, and then comes the polishing chisel of the gospel.
I see the stones lying in their places, and the church is rising.
The ministers, like wise master-builders, are there running along the wall, putting each spiritual stone in its place; each stone is leaning on that massive corner stone, and every stone depending on the blood, and finding its security and its strength in Jesus Christ, the corner stone, elect, and precious.
Do you see the building rise as each one of God’s chosen is brought in, called by grace and quickened? Do you mark the living stones as in sacred love and holy brotherhood they are knit together? Have you ever entered the building, and seen how these stones lean upon one another bearing each other’s burden, so fulfilling the law of Christ? Do you mark how the church loves Christ, and how the members love each other? How first the church is joined to the corner stone, and then each stone bound to the next, and the next to the next, till the whole building becomes one?
Lo! The structure rises, and it is complete, and at last it is built.
And now open wide your eyes, and see what a glorious building this is—the church of God. Men talk of the splendour of their architecture—this is architecture indeed.
Here, two days before the laying of the first stone of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Spurgeon gave a timely reminder that the word “church” is a description of Christian people, not of any building in which they gather. Are you a living stone, built into the spiritual household of God (Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:4,5)?
Sermon no. 267
14 August (1859)
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty,
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus,
who died for me to make me free of sin,
I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free,
I confess that He is the son of God.
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
not only to live on this earth,
but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
