Introduction: These sermons are Mp3 files made using a text to Mp3 conversion program and a relatively natural sounding voice. While some words may be slightly mispronounced, for the most part the quality and "listen-ability" is reasonably good (not as annoying or robotic sounding as some computer generated messages). I download these files to my Ipod and listen while I'm driving or on a long bike ride. It is quite a treat to be able to "redeem the time" (Ep 5:16) by listening to the "prince of preachers", Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Another way to download these files is to Double click the link and the pop up will give you 3 options - "Open" (plays the Mp3 on your computer), "Download" (Allows you to download to your computer or your Ipod for portable listening) or "Cancel".

Length: 41 Minutes (38MB)
Comment: This is a wonderful sermon on the New Covenant in which Spurgeon seeks to stimulate saints to pray for Christian life on a higher plane writing "Do not be satisfied with a little, weak, almost imperceptible, pulse of religion, of which you can hardly judge whether it is there or not; but ask to feel the divine energies working within you, the eternal omnipotence of God, struggling and striving mightily in your spirit until sin shall be conquered, and grace shall gloriously triumph. This is a covenant blessing. Seek ye for it."

Marvelous Lovingkindness - Psalm 17:7 - Sermon No. 2702 by C H Spurgeon - Delivered on Thursday Evening, October 20, 1881
Length: 34 Minutes 42 seconds (31.7MB)
Comment: David prayed "Show Thy marvelous lovingkindness" (KJV) What a great prayer. Have you ever prayed this prayer? Do you dare pray such a prayer? Heb 4:16-note invites us to pray boldly drawing "near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need." Given this truth, dare we NOT pray this great prayer? Oh beloved, let us offer up this prayer and "test (Jehovah) now in this, if (He) will not open for (us) the windows of heaven, and pour out for (us) a blessing until it overflows" (Mal 3:10) in Christ Jesus Who became poor that we through His poverty might become rich.(2Co 8:9) Amen

The Lord's Famous Titles - Psalm 146:7, 8, 9 Sermon No. 2347 by C H Spurgeon - Delivered on Lord's Day Evening, November 10, 1889.
Length: 28 Minutes 42 seconds (26.2MB)
Comment: Spurgeon recounts five of Jehovah's titles - Emancipator, Illuminator, Comforter, Rewarder and Preserver - inviting and encouraging us to run into the strong tower of these mighty Names (Pr 18:10) and be lifted up above the swirling storms of life. As you listen to Spurgeon unfold of the truths of God's "Famous Titles", may you be led by the Spirit of Christ to "Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His Name". Amen (Ps 29:2)
Here is a quote from this sermon:
Some are bowed down sadly by the burdens of life. They have more to carry than most men have. They stagger along from day to day beneath a load that threatens to crush them into the dust. Oh, come to my Lord, who gives new strength to bear burdens, for he raises up those that are bowed down! It is wonderful what a man can do when God has laid his hand on him, and said to him, “Be strong.” You are faint, and you will faint without your God; but you will be strong if you come and trust him, for “Jehovah raises them that are bowed down.”

The Perpetuity of the Law of God - Matthew 5:18 - Sermon No 1660 by C H Spurgeon - Delivered on Lord's Day morning, May 21, 1882.
Length: 42 minutes (40 MB)
Comment: Although this sermon is somewhat "heavy", it is posted to address the misconception that even though salvation in both Testaments is by grace through faith and not by works of the Law, the Law itself has by no means been annulled, abolished or abrogated. Spurgeon counters such fallacious thinking with eloquent Bibliocentric logic and rhetoric.

Deliver Us From Evil - Matthew 6:13 - Thomas Watson
Length: 95 minutes
Comment: Watson gives an exhaustive dissertation on sin - origin, nature, cure, effects followed by pithy, practical instructions and exhortations. You have probably never heard such a convincing and convicting discussion of sin. The Mp3 would be an excellent way to redeem the time on a long trip or daily commute!
