Remembering John Bunyan

John Bunyan would not have been socially desirable in his time. He, a Bedford tinker, couldn’t get inside one of the princely castles. 

I was very much amused when I was overseas. They had erected a monument to John Bunyan, and it was unveiled by lords, dukes, and other great men. 

While he was on earth, they wouldn’t have allowed him inside the walls of their castles. Yet, he was made one of the mightiest instruments in the spread of the gospel

No book that has ever been written comes as close to the Bible as John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. And he was a poor Bedford tinker. 

That’s how it is with God. He picks up some poor, lost outcast and makes him an instrument to turn hundreds and thousands to Christ.
