INTRODUCTORY NOTE
Few and simple should be the words which introduce this eagerly expectedbook to the many friends who will welcome it.The beloved author has gone to his eternal reward, he is “the blessed of theLord for ever”; but he has left with us this last precious legacy, whichdraws our hearts heavenward after him.It stands alone in its sacred and sorrowful significance. It is the tiredworker’s final labor of love for his Lord. It is the last sweet song from lipsthat were ever sounding forth the praises of his king. It is the dying shoutof victory from the standard-bearer, who bore his captain’s colorsunflinchingly through the thickest of the fight.Reverently we lay it at the dear master’s feet, with love, and tears, andprayers. It needs no comment. It is beyond all criticism. But hisacceptance and approval will be its reward and glory.During two previous winters in the south of France, a great part of dearMr. Spurgeon’s leisure had been devoted to the production of thiscommentary, and it bears much internal evidence of the brightness of thesunny shore where it was written.On the last visit to Mentone, after his terrible illness, his mental strengthwas apparently quite restored, and this delightful service was eagerlyresumed; so eagerly, that we often feared his health would suffer from hisdevotion to his happy task. But it was difficult to persuade him to relaxhis efforts; with his master, he could say, “my meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work;” and till within a few days of thetermination of his lovely and gracious life, he was incessantly occupied inexpounding this portion of God’s word.

Much of the later portion of the work, therefore, was written on the veryborder-land of heaven, amid the nearing glories of the unseen world, andalmost “within sight of the golden gates.”Such words acquire a solemnity and pathos with which nothing else couldinvest them. We listen almost as to a voice “from the excellent glory.”Yet, in reading over the proof-sheets of my beloved’s last work, I havebeen as much struck by the profound simplicity as by the tender power of the dear expositor’s comments. Surely the secret of his great strength layin this, that he was willing to say what god put in his heart, and did notseek to use “enticing words of man’s wisdom.”Although the master’s call to his faithful servant came before he couldcomplete the revision of his manuscripts, the concluding pages have beencompiled, with loving care,
entirely from his own spoken and writtenwords,
by the dear friend who was most closely associated with him in allhis work for god.
