    KNOWLEDGE, word of

    Wesley was not an advocate of sensationalism in preaching. But on one occasion, he interrupted his own sermon and shouted, "Lord, is Saul also among the prophets? Is James Watson here? If he be, show Thy power!" And James Watson dropped to the floor and began to cry loudly for God's mercy!

    W. Wiersbe, Wycliffe Handbook of Preaching and Preachers, Moody Press, 1984, p. 247.


    At a Monday evening prayer meeting, Charles Spurgeon suddenly interrupted his sermon, pointed in a certain direction, and said, "Young man, those gloves you are wearing have not been paid for; you have stolen them from your employer!" After the meeting a young man came to the vestry and begged to see Spurgeon. Pale and trembling, the young man confessed that he had stolen the gloves he was wearing! He promised never to steal again and begged Spurgeon not to expose him to his employer.

    W. Wiersbe, Wycliffe Handbook of Preaching and Preachers, Moody Press, 1984, p. 219.


    When Charles Spurgeon was pastor at New Park Street in London, God used his words to bring about amazing changes in the lives of people. A man who was on his way to get some gin saw the crowd at the church door and pushed his way in to see what was going on. At that moment, Spurgeon turned and faced the man and said that there was a man in the gallery who had a gin bottle in his pocket and had come with no good motive. The startled man listened to the rest of the message and was converted. One evening a prostitute, on her way to Blackfriars Bridge to commit suicide, stopped at the church, hoping to hear some word that would prepare her to meet her maker. Spurgeon was preaching from Luke 7:36-50, the story of the prostitute who wiped Jesus feet with her tears. His text was verse 44; "Seest thou this woman?" As Spurgeon preached, the woman saw herself but also saw the grace of God and trusted Christ.
