An Audience with Fame
Charles Spurgeon was a very popular preacher. Many famous people visited his services in London. On any given Sunday, Spurgeon could look out and see Prime Minister W. E. Gladstone, members of the royal family, members of Parliament, author John Ruskin, Florence Nightingale, Dwight L. Moody, or General James Garfield, who later was elected president of the United States. “A person’s gift makes room for him, and leads him before great people.” (Proverbs 18:16) God will use the gifts He has given you to magnify His name in his own way.
