Spurgeon on Agressiveness

“The Christian Church was designed from the first to be aggressive. It was not intended to remain stationary at any period, but to advance onward until its boundaries became commensurate with those of the world. It was to spread from  Jerusalem to all Judea, from Judea to Samaria, and from Samaria until the uttermost arts of the earth. It was not intended to radiate from one central point only; but to form numerous centers from which its influence might spread to the surrounding parts… The plan upon which the apostles proceeded… was to plant churches in all the great cities and centers of influence in the known world.”

– Sword & Trowel, Vol 1 April 1865, p.63

    Spurgeon blows me away. He was thinking gospel-centrality and thinking missionally before it was “Cool!” Thanks for all the wisdom that you give and point us to. Love you bro.
