The Work That Saves – by Horatius Bonar

The Work That Saves

   Done is the work that Saves!

      Once and forever done.

   Finished the righteousness

      That clothes the unrighteous one.

   The love that blesses us below

      Is flowing freely to us now.


   The sacrifice is o’er,

      The veil is rent in twain,

   The mercy-seat is red

      With blood of victim slain;

   Why stand we then without in fear?

      The blood divine invites us near.


   The gate is open wide,

       The new and living way

   Is clear and free and bright,

      With love and peace and day;

   Into the holiest now we come, 

      Our present and our endless home.


   Upon the mercy-seat

      The High Priest sits within;

   The blood is in his hand

      Which makes and keeps us clean.

   With boldness let us now draw near,

      That blood has banished every fear.


   Then to the Lamb once slain

      Be glory, praise and power,

   Who died and lives again,

      Who liveth evermore;

   Who loved and washed us in his blood,

      Who made us kings and priests to God.

Free Booklet: Soul Winning by Charles H. Spurgeon

This is an adaptation from an 1869 sermon by the famous preacher Charles Spurgeon.  Spurgeon’s message is based upon Proverbs 11:30 which in the King James says “He that winneth souls is wise.”  This booklet focuses on Christians evangelizing the lost.  Spurgeon explains the term winning as understood in different context and lays out the reason why it is wise to engage in “soul winning.”  I enjoyed reading this because it wasn’t addressed primarily towards Pastors but towards all the members of the church.  He also gave practical suggestions on reaching the lost which I appreciated very much.  Evangelism isn’t just only done on non-Sundays; he even talked about reaching people who are visiting the church in which one should talk to strangers about the sermon after the service is over.  Again very practical and spiritually motivating.  For our own church I had one of the small groups read through it together and I am currently having this as a must read for some of the guys who does evangelism with me.

You can read this booklet for free via Chapel Library in the following format:  PDF EPUB MOBI
