Charles Spurgeon on the Study of God

"It has been said by someone that the proper study of mankind is man.  I will not oppose the idea, but I believe it is equally true that the proper study of God's elect is God; the proper study of a Christian is the Godhead.  The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings, and the existence of the great God whom he calls his Father."1

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
