Soaking the self-satisfied

Charles Haddon Spurgeon said, he once met a man who said he had arrived, he had attained, he had reached total sanctification in this life.  Spurgeon said, “Oh, really?”  And he did something that I don’t necessarily recommend though, it sounds pretty fun.  He took a pitcher of water and poured it all over the man.  And the man started swearing.  And Spurgeon smiled and said, “I thought so.” [Laughter]  “You haven’t arrived.  Listen to what’s coming out of your mouth.”  And he just wanted to prove it.
