James Smith was a predecessor of Charles Spurgeon at New Park Street Chapel in London from 1841 until 1850. Early on, Smith's readings were even more popular than Spurgeon's! Read his personal testimony.
My object is to lead the mind . . .
from SELF — to Jesus;
from sin — to salvation;
from the troubles of life — to the comforts of the gospel.
My aim is to humble the sinner — and to exalt the Savior; to strip the creature — and to place the crown on the head of God's free grace! I cannot ascribe too much to Jesus — or too little to man!
My object has always been to keep Christ constantly before the eye, and to enforce the precepts of the Divine word on the Lord's people — by the consideration of what Christ is to them, and has done for them — that so the love of Christ may constrain them to every good word, and every good work.
