Publisher Description

Whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your slave. – Matthew 20:27

You cannot have Christ if you will not serve Him. If you take Christ, you must take Him in all His qualities. You must not simply take Him as a Friend, but you must also take Him as your Master. If you are to become His disciple, you must also become His servant. God-forbid that anyone fights against that truth. It is certainly one of our greatest delights on earth to serve our Lord, and this is to be our joyful vocation even in heaven itself: His servants shall serve Him: and they shall see His face (Revelation 22:3-4).

Charles H. Spurgeon originally wrote this book for members of the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor. Spurgeon's heartfelt writing style makes this book one that today still encourages believers to move into Christian action. He emphasizes simply moving forward, using the talents and resources you already have at your disposal, for the Lord's service and your own eternal reward. The concepts presented are easy to understand and straight-forward, if only you are ready to lay down your life to follow Christ.

Truly Inspiring in the Holy Spirit

I’m convinced that this book will be an eye opener for many. I’ve had blinders on for so long as a Christian and I thank God Almighty for gifting Spurgeon with writing this book. May it bless you as it has blessed me.

Convicting to a comfortable Christian

Spurgeon does a masterful job of piecing together what it looks like to truly follow Christ; unrelenting trust, deep fellowship, and willing submission to Christ’s plan. If you are looking for a book to further enrich your faith, this is a great book for understanding discipleship’s true meaning.

Great book. Really makes you think if you are doing enough for Christ and saving as many people as possible. The message is brilliant and inspires you to trust in the Lord with all your heart and serve Him as best you can.
