Harvey Newcomb on God's Provision for His Children

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“By this, however, we are not to understand that the Lord will give us every earthly blessing which we desire. We are so short-sighted as often to wish for things which would prove positively injurious to us. But we are to understand that He will give us all that He sees best for us. And surely we ought to be satisfied with this; for He who sees the end from the beginning, must know much better than we what is for our good.”

Harvey Newcomb


Thomas Reade on the Effects of the Gospel

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Such are the blessed effects of the Gospel, when it comes with power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance. It invariably produces works of faith, labours of love, and patience of hope. It brings glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, and good will towards men. It turns the lion into the lamb; the desert into the garden of the Lord. It converts the impure and savage heart into a habitation, meet for the mild and holy Dove. Old things pass away—and behold, all things become new.”

Thomas Reade


A.W. Pink God's Word's Affect on His People

“Unless our ‘Bible study’ is conforming us, both inwardly and outwardly, to the image of Christ it profits us not”

J.C. Ryle on Christianity

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, October 16, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Seek every day to have closer communion with Him who is your Friend, and to know more of His grace and power. True Christianity is not merely the believing a certain set of dry abstract propositions: it is to live in daily personal communication with an actual living person—Jesus the Son of God.”

J.C. Ryle


Charles Spurgeon on God

Thomas Watson on Heaven

“The meditation of heaven is a pillar of support under all our sufferings; heaven.  One hour in Heaven will make us forget all our sorrows. As the sun dries up the water, so one beam of God's glorious face will dry up all our tears.”
Thomas Watson

J.C. Ryle on Listening to the Word of God Preached

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , , | Posted On at 5:30 AM

“Let us bear these rules in mind every Sunday morning before we go to hear the Word of God preached. Let as not rush into God's presence carelessly, recklessly, and unprepared, as if it did not matter how we approach Him. Let us carry with us faith, reverence, and prayer. If these three are our companions, we will benefit as we listen and will give back praise.”

J.C. Ryle


Martin Luther on Nature

William Cowper on God and Nature

“The Lord of all, Himself through all diffus’d
Sustains, and is the life of all that lives.
Nature is but a name for an effect, 
whose cause is God."

William Cowper


Thomas Watson on Our Lives and The Scriptures

“Let us lead Scripture lives. Oh that the Bible might be seen printed in our lives! Do what the Word commands. Obedience is an excellent way of commenting upon the Bible. Psa 86:2: ‘I will walk in the truth.’  Let the Word be the sun-dial by which you set your life.”

Thomas Watson


A.W. Pink on Life at Home

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“To talk to people about Christ is far easier than the task He has assigned-to deny self, take up our cross, and follow Him. Actions speak louder than words: it is by our conduct we are to make manifest Whose we are. Christians are to "show forth" by their lives (rather than tell forth with their lips) "the praises of Him who has called them" (1 Peter 2:9). And they are "first to show piety at home," then in the Church, and then in the world, for if there be no piety in our home life, then all our seeming piety in the Church and before the world is but humbuggery and hypocrisy.”

A.W. Pink


Octavius Winslow on Christ as Our Guide

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“We must first surrender our way and will before He will teach us His. The " meek" He will guide: the childlike, trustful, unquestioning disciple, that humbly locks his hand in Christ's and says, " Lord, lead me and guide me, not in my own way, but in Thine."  Oh, take a firm grasp of this Triple Staff, and you shall travel safely, surely, through all your unknown future. Be honest and sincere only to know and to walk in the Lord's way, the way in which”


Octavius Winslow

John Angell James on Self

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“In how many ways does self steal away the heart from God. How subtle its workings, how concealed its movements, yet how extensive its influence. How it perverts our motives, lowers our aims, corrupts our affections, and taints our best actions.”

John Angell James


Charles Spurgeon on the Life of the Believer

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You have read lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but the best life of Christ is His living biography, written out in the words and actions of His people.”

Charles Surgeon


J.R. Miller on Christian Peace

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“If we learn well the lesson of living just one day at a time, without anxiety for either yesterday or tomorrow, we shall have found one of the great secrets of Christian peace. That is the way God teaches us to live. That is the lesson both of the Bible and of nature. If we learn it, it will cure us of all anxiety; it will save us from all feverish haste; it will enable us to live sweetly in any experience.”

J.R. Miller

Charles Spurgeon


J.C. Philpot on Modern Religion

“I am quite sick of modern religion; it is such a mixture, such a medley, such a compromise. I find much, indeed, of this religion in my own heart, for it suits the flesh well; but I would not have it so, and grieve it should be so.”

“But now a sincere Christian, he owns Christ in all His offices, he receives Christ in all His offices, and he closes with Christ in all His offices. He accepts of Him, not only as a Christ Jesus, but also as a Lord Jesus; he embraces Him, not only as a saving Christ, but also as a ruling Christ. ”

J.C Ryle on Reading The Bible

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Friday, September 15, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Let us resolve to "read the Bible more and more" every year we live. Let us try to get it rooted in our memories, an engraved into our hearts. Let us be thoroughly well provisioned with it against the voyage of death. Who knows but we may have a very stormy passage? Sight and hearing may fail us, and we may be in deep waters. Oh, to have the Word "hid in our hearts" in such an hour as that! (Psalm 119:11).”

J.C. Ryle on the Perils of Greatness and Riches

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , , | Posted On Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 5:30 AM

"Greatness and riches are a perilous possession for the soul. They know not what they seek who seek to have them. They lead men into many temptations. They are likely to fill the heart with pride, and to chain the affections down to things below."

J.C. Ryle


J.C. Ryle on Sharing The Gospel

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“The truest charity is to endeavour to share with others every spark of religious light we possess ourselves, and so to hold our own candle that it may give light to every one around us. Happy is that soul, which, as soon as it receives light from heaven, begins to think of others as well as itself! No candle which God lights was ever meant to burn alone.”

J.C. Ryle

J.R. Miller on Work and Character

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“The shop, the mill, the factory, the store, the office, the farm are not primarily places for making machines, selling goods, weaving cloths, building engines, and growing crops; they are, first of all, places for making men, building character, growing souls. Right in the midst of what some people call drudgery is the very best place to get the transformed, transfigured life. The doing of common tasks patiently, promptly, faithfully, cheerfully, makes the character beautiful and bright.”

J.R. Miller
