"The marrow of theology is Christ": Spurgeon at his Best

Charles Spurgeon from his sermon on John 24:5 called "A Visit to Calvary" taken from the book Sermons Preached and Revised (free ebook here).
Take away Christ from the sermon, and you have taken away its essence. The marrow of theology is Christ; the very bone and sinew of the gospel is preaching Christ. a Christless sermon is the merriment of hell. A Christless sermon is a fearful waste of time; it incurs the blood of souls, and dyes that man's skirts with gore who dares to preach it. But to much of Christ we can not have. Give us Christ always, Christ ever. The monotony of Christ is sweet variety, and even the unity of Christ hath in it all the elements of harmony. Christ, on his cross and on his throne, int he manger and in the tomb -- Christ everywhere is sweet to us. We love his name, we adore his person, we delight to hear of his works. (330)
