Joseph Alleine on Conversion

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, March 10, 2017 at 6:56 AM

"Conversion is not a repairing of the old building, but it takes all down and erects a new structure. It is not the sewing on a patch of holiness; but, with the true convert, holiness is woven into all his powers, principles and practice."

Joseph Alleine


Stephen Charnock on Worship and the Heart

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 5:30 AM

"Without the heart it is no worship. It is a stage play. It is an acting of a part without being that person, really. It is playing the hypocrite."

Joseph Hall on Living Life

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Every day is a little life, and our whole life is but a day repeated. Therefore live every day as if it would be the last. Those that dare lose a day, are dangerously prodigal; those that dare misspend it are desperate.”
Joseph Hall


Thomas Watson on Desire for Christ

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, March 6, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“An unfeigned desire is supreme. We desire Christ, not only more than the world, but more than heaven. "whom have I in heaven but thee?" Psa 73: 25. Heaven itself would not satisfy without Christ. He is the diamond in the ring of glory. If God should say to the soul, I will put thee into heaven, but I will hide my face from thee, I will draw a curtain between that thou shalt not behold my glory, the soul would not be satisfied, but say, as Absalom, "Now therefore let me see the king's face." 2 Samuel 14: 32.”
Thomas Watson

J.R. Miller on Christian Love

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“But what is the love that is the whole of the will of God?  Do we really understand it?  Do not many of us think only of its earthly side? We like to be loved, that is, to have other people love us and live for us and do things for us.  We like the gratifications of love.  But that is only miserable selfishness, if it goes no further.  It is a desecration of the sacred name to think that love, at its heart, means getting, receiving.  Nay, love gives. Getting is earthly; "as it is in heaven" is giving.  That is what God's love does — it finds its blessedness in giving. "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son."  That is what Christ's love did—it poured out its very life-blood to the last drop.  The essential meaning of loving must always be giving, not receiving.”

J.R. Miller

Jared Bell Waterbury on the Love of Christ

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“The love of Christ! What a motive to one who has felt its constraining influence! Can we say that we have not only experienced the love of Christ to us; but have felt in return the outgoings of love to our blessed Savior? “

Jared Bell Waterbury


Jonathan Edwards on Christian Love

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 5:30 AM

"If love is the sum of Christianity, surely those things which overthrow Christian love, are exceedingly unbecoming Christians.  An envious Christian, a malicious Christian, a cold and hard-hearted Christian, is the greatest absurdity and contradiction.  It is as if one should speak of dark brightness, or a false truth!”
Jonathan Edwards

Charles Spurgeon on Grace

J.R. Miller on Growing Older

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, February 24, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“As we grow older, there should be a constant gaining, never a losing in our spiritual life. Every year should find us living on a higher plane than the year before. Old age should always be the best of life, not marked by spiritual emptiness and decay — but by nobler fruitfulness and more gracious beauty.”

J.R. Miller

Charles Spurgeon on Knowing God and Christ

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“No one knows the true God in the real sense of knowledge except through Jesus Christ, for no man comes unto the Father but by the Son. But even if he could know God, in a measure, apart from the Revelation of Him in Christ Jesus, it would be a knowledge of terror that would make him flee away and avoid God! It would not be life to our souls to know God apart from His Son, Jesus Christ! We must know the Christ whom He has sent or our knowledge does not bring eternal life to us.”

Charles Spurgeon


Blaise Pascal on Knowing Christ

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Knowing God without knowing our own wretchedness makes for pride. Knowing our own wretchedness without knowing God makes for despair.  Knowing Jesus Christ strikes the balance because he shows us both God and our own wretchedness.”
Blaise Pascal

J.C. Ryle on Compassion

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, February 17, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Let us take care that we drink into our Lord's spirit, and copy His example. Let us never set down men in a low place, as gracious and godless, because their faith is feeble and their love is cold. Let us remember the case of Thomas, and be very compassionate and of tender mercy.“
J.C. Ryle

William Bacon Stevens on Faith and Works

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“The religion of Jesus Christ is made up of two parts — faith and works.  Faith is the root of works; works are the fruit of faith.  A belief, however true and pure, if it is accepted only by the intellect, and be not carried out into practice, translating into active duties the faith held by the mind, is a barren faith, that will not be accepted by God, and will not secure salvation.”

William Bacon Stevens

"The Lord doth many things for us, which at that time when he doth them, we cannot observe; it is our duty therefore to look upon them afterwards, that they may furnish us with matter of praise to God."

Andrew Bonar on Revival

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, February 13, 2017 at 5:30 AM

"Revivals begin with God's own people; the Holy Spirit touches their heart anew, and gives them new fervor and compassion, and zeal, new light and life, and when He has thus come to you, He next goes forth to the valley of dry bones... Oh, what responsibility this lays on the Church of God! If you grieve Him away from yourselves, or hinder His visit, then the poor perishing world suffers sorely!"

Andrew Bonar
