Wilbur Chapman, an American preacher, received some good advice in London that he never forgot.
Chapman was a young man when he went to London to visit the famous Metropolitan Tabernacle where Charles Spurgeon preached. Chapman was anxious to discover Spurgeon’s secret of success. Spurgeon told him what it was.
Every day and night thousands of men and women here in London pray for the work of the Tabernacle, and for me. All around the world, day after day, hundreds of thousands of God’s people ask for His blessing on me and my sermons. In answer to those prayers the Lord opens the windows of heaven and pours out so many blessings that there is not room in our hearts and lives to receive them all. Young man, try this way of running your church!
