The Holy Spirit Is Already There

Go there, my dear brother, venture there, my dear sister, without any fear, remembering that, although “the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, the Spirit of God moved upon the waters.”

Go to that dark spot, for the Spirit of God will go with you. He will guide you through the darkness and through the chaos, and will help and bless you. Missionaries have gone to lands where the people were all cannibals, but they have not been unsuccessful.

The gospel has been carried to people who were so degraded that they did not seem to have any sense of possessing even a soul, yet the gospel has not been without fruit among them.

No race of men has ever been discovered that has been sunk too low for the Spirit of God to work upon them, and to save them. Let us never despair of any, or think that they are beyond the Spirit’s power.

C. H. Spurgeon, “The Spirit’s Work in the New Creation,”
