Spurgeon continues: Although we are strangers and foreigners on earth, no exemption is granted to us from the common lot. We are born to trouble, even as others, and have tribulation like the rest. When famine comes we hunger; and when war rages we are in danger. We are exposed to the same climate, bearing the same burning heat, or the same freezing cold; we know the whole train of ills, even as the citizens of earth know them.
This world is not my home!»
