A strange college!

by Spurgeon--

"Salvation is of the Lord." -Jonah 2:9.

JONAH learned this sentence of good theology in a strange college.

He learned it in the whale's belly, at the bottom of the mountains,
with the weeds wrapped about his head, when he supposed
that the earth with her bars was about him forever.

Most of the grand truths of God have to be learned by trouble;
they must be burned into us with the hot iron of affliction,
otherwise we shall not truly receive them.
