Charles Spurgeon Reading
The following selection is being read in Asbury Seminary Chapel this week. This reading is being used as a liturgical element to setup a sermon focused on living in the shadow of the cross of Christ.

Never be satisfied till you have learned the mystery of the five wounds; never be content till you are “able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge.”
