The great British preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon was saved January 6, 1850. There is a marker placed over the very spot where Spurgeon was sitting when he got saved. The marker details Spurgeon's own words of the experience: "Seeking rest and finding none, I stepped within the house of God, and sat there. Afraid to look upward, lest I should be utterly cut off, and lest His fierce wrath should consume me. The minister rose in his pulpit, and read this text, 'Look unto Me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth. For I am God, and there is none else.' I looked that moment; the grace of faith was vouchsafed to me in the selfsame instant. And now I think I can say with truth:
E'er since by faith, I saw the stream,
His flowing wounds supply.

And shall be till I die."
In later years, Spurgeon went on to describe the day of his deliverance, "It is not everyone who can remember the very day and hour of his deliverance; but, as Richard Knill said, 'At such a time of the day, clang went every harp in Heaven,' it was even so with me. The clock of mercy struck in Heaven the hour and moment of my emancipation, for the time had come. Between half past ten o'clock, when I entered that chapel, and half-past twelve o'clock when I was back home, what a change had taken place in me. I had passed from mysterious darkness into marvelous light, from death to life. It matters not to me whether the day was gloomy or bright, I had met Christ; that was enough for me."
