Do Not Refuse The Knock

“”But we are told the Lord Jesus ‘saw them, and was moved with compassion.’ See what a merciful and loving Saviour we have to do with; wonderful indeed must be the hardness and unbelief of men’s hearts, when such a one stands knocking at the door and is only rejected and refused.” –J.C. 11 more words


Engaging Holiness with J.C. Ryle

J.C. Ryle writes in the Introduction to this wonderful classic on holiness, “That faith in Christ is the root of all holiness–that the first step towards a holy life is to believe on Christ–that until we believe we have not a jot of holiness–that union with Christ by faith is the secret of both beginning to be holy and continuing holy–that the life that we live in the flesh we must live by the faith of the Son of God–that faith purifies the heart–that faith is the victory which overcomes the world–that by faith the elders obtained a good report–all these are truths which no well-instructed Christian will ever think of denying.”  473 more words
