Sept 10, 1876
by Charles Spurgeon
I've been studying the Book of Job this past month and I'm in Chapter 19 when I came across this very old sermon by the great Charles Spurgeon. What a great analogy to go on this Christian fisherman's blog.

"There may be some rough water to be crossed between here and the fair havens of eternal felicity, but all is right there for ever and ever.
There may be losses and crosses, there may be tossings and shipwrecks, but all is right for ever with all who are in Christ Jesus. "Some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship,"—but all who are in Christ Jesus shall escape "safe to land."
There are uncertainties innumerable, but there is this one certainty: "Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end." Spring on this rock, man!

If you are struggling in the sea, just now, and waves of sin and doubt beat over you, leap on to this rock, Jesus lives.
