Charles Spurgeon was a pastor of the largest church in the world, a writer whose production few have ever matched, and a preacher of more sermons than you can count. He was exceedingly successful but continually humble. His booming voice moved congregants to conviction and salvation right there in their pews.
After his death, Spurgeon was nicknamed “The Prince of Pastors”. Spurgeon would have accepted the compliment had he heard it, but there’s no doubt he would have used it to point to Jesus — as he did with nearly everything else in his life.
You see, Jesus is the Prince of Peace. It’s not a name you hear for Him often — more frequently you hear Christ, or Son of God, or Emmanuel. But it’s a really important title. Why? Because Jesus restores broken relationships and (more importantly) brings peace between us and God.
The Prince of Pastors was always talking, writing, preaching, and pointing to the Prince of Peace.
