Biographers have analyzed the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon from all kinds of angles. All manner of explanations have been given as to his fruitfulness and the excellence and benefits of his proclamation. I put it to you that the answer to it all is aptly summarized on his tombstone. There he has the verse of the hymn "There is a Fountain Filled with Blood" carved in to his record his life. The inscription reads, "E'er since by faith I saw the stream Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeming love has been my theme, And shall be till I die."

I grew up in Glasgow, Scotland. I was born there in 1952 and enjoyed all the benefits that were part and parcel of that upbringing. My father would take me regularly to hear various people preach, most of whom I had no interest in hearing as a young boy. But since my father was not in a popularity competition for my affections, he told me exactly where I was going and where I was spending my time!...

Who are you?

The man sitting to my left at a dinner referred to himself as a carpenter. Carpentry is his vocation, but it is not who he is. A lady with a broken marriage said to a friend, “I am just a failure.” Although she had failed in her marriage, that is not who she is. I grew up in moderate poverty. To this day, my default answer to the question, “Who am I?”, is, “I am the little boy growing up on the dirt street alongside the railroad track.” But that is not who I am...

To be “in Christ” is the most basic identity of a Christian, so much so that all other answers to the question, “Who am I?”, are based on, or drawn from, that identity: this is the summation of our first two chapters. In this chapter and those that follow, we will address six implications or aspects of what it means to be “in Christ.”

We have begun to answer the question, “Who am I?”, with the fact that we are all creatures, created in the image of God, dependent on him, and accountable to him. This is true of everyone born into the world whether we realize it or not. But for those of us who have trusted in Christ as our Savior, there is much more to our identity than simply being creatures...

Then the pilgrims, especially Christian, began to despair in their minds. They looked this way and that, but no way could be found to escape the river.

Then they asked the men if the waters were deep everywhere all the time. They told them that sometimes the water was shallow, but that they could not guide them in that matter since the waters were deep or shallow depending upon their faith in the King of the place.

Then the judge called to the jurymen (who were standing by and had observed all that had been said and done), “Gentlemen of the jury, you see this man about whom so great an uproar has been made in this town. You have also heard what these worthy gentlemen have witnessed against him. Also you have heard his reply and confession. It is now your responsibility to hang him or save his life. But before you decide, I think I need to instruct you in our law. There was an Act made in the days of Pharaoh the Great, servant to our prince, that to prevent those of a contrary religion from multiplying and growing too strong, the male children of those troublesome people should be drowned in the river...

Then I saw in my dream that when they had left the borders of the wilderness, they immediately saw a town before them. The name of that town is Vanity, and in the town there is a year-round market called Vanity Fair. It bears its name because the town that hosts the fair is only concerned with things that are unimportant and vain. All that is bought and sold at the fair is likewise vain and worthless. As the ancient saying goes, ‘All that cometh is vanity.’ This fair is no new business but has been established from ancient times. I will now explain to you its history and origins.

Now at the end of the Valley of Humiliation there was another valley, the Valley of the Shadow of Death. And since there was no other way to the Celestial City, Christian was obliged to go through it.

Now this valley was a very solitary place, and as the prophet Jeremiah described it, "a wilderness, a land of deserts, and of pits, a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, a land that no man [but a Christian] passed through, and where no one lived."

Then Evangelist warned Christian to be careful and not to turn aside again, "lest you perish in the way, for His wrath is quickly kindled."

Then Christian asked to go back to the way leading to the narrow sheep gate, and Evangelist, after he had kissed him, gave him a smile and bid him Godspeed.

Now I saw in my dream, just as they had finished talking, that they came near to a very miry swamp that was in the middle of the valley. Then suddenly both Christian and Pliable, who were not paying attention to where they were walking, fell into the swamp. The name of the swamp was Despond. They wallowed there until they were both completely covered with mud. Christian, weighed down by the burden on his back, began to sink .

Then Pliable said, "Ah, neighbor Christian, where are you now?"

"Honestly," said Christian, "I don't know."

As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I came to a certain place where there was a cave; and I lay down in that place to sleep. As I slept, I dreamed a dream, and in this dream I saw a man clothed in rags, standing in a place with his face turned away from his own house. He had a book in his hand and a heavy burden upon his back...

The writer to the Hebrews encourages us to fix our eyes on Jesus. This is a good word for the opening month of the year. The Jesus to whom we are introduced is He who has died for our sins and has been raised for our justification. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Since He is the One that has begun a good work in us, we may be confident that He will complete what He has planned. In contrast to the self-focused, self-reliant messages that are emphasized by contemporary culture, the Christian acknowledges that HIS strength is made perfect in our weakness...

The reason philosophical pluralism makes Christians ornery is that it would force them to abandon truth. There are at least four essential beliefs that Christianity refuses to leave behind: the unity of truth, the uniqueness of Jesus Christ, the reality of sin, and the absolute necessity of the atonement...
