Spurgeon on his first encounters with the Scriptures after being converted

Before my conversion, I was accustomed to read the Scriptures to admire their grandeur, to feel the charm of their history, and wonder at the majesty of their language; but I altogether missed the Lord’s intent therein. But when the Spirit came with His Divine life, and quickened all the Book to my newly-enlightened soul, the inner meaning shone forth with wondrous glory. I was not in a frame of mind to judge God’s Word, but I accepted it all without demur; I did not venture to sit in judgement upon my Judge, and become the reviser of the unerring God. Whatever I found to be in His Word, I received with intense joy.

Charles Spurgeon quoted from Baptists and the Bible, p. 229
