A.W. Pink on God

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 30, 2010 at 10:00 AM

"A "god' whose will is resisted, whose designs are frustrated, whose purpose is checkmated, possesses no title to Deity, and so far from being a fit object of worship, merits nought but contempt."

A.W. Pink

Samuel Rutherford from "The Loveliness of Christ"

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"Whether God come to his children with a rod or a crown, if he come himself with it, it is well. Welcome, welcome Jesus, what may soever thou come, if we can get a sight of thee: and sure I am, it is better to be sick, providing Christ come to the bedside and draw the curtains, and say, Courage, I am thy salvation, than to enjoy health, being lusty and strong and never need to be visited of God."
Samuel Rutherford



Horatius Bonar on Love and the Law

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, April 27, 2010 at 9:30 AM

“Love is not a rule but a motive. Love does not tell me what to do; it tells me how to do it. Love constrains me to do the will of the beloved one; but to know what that will is I must go elsewhere. The Law of our God is the will of the beloved One, and were that expression of His will withdrawn, love would be utterly in the dark; it would not know what to do.”

Horatius Bonar

John Bunyan on Prayer

"When thou prayest, rather let thy heart be without words, than thy words without a heart."
John Bunyan

John Owen on Sin

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 23, 2010 at 8:45 AM

"Let no man think to kill sin with few, easy, or gentle strokes. He who hath once smitten a serpent, if he follow not on his blow until it be slain, may repent that ever he began the quarrel. And so he who undertakes to deal with sin, and pursues it not constantly to the death."

 John Owen

Martin Lloyd Jones on Repentance

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, April 21, 2010 at 8:22 AM

"Repentance means that you realize that you are a guilty, vile sinner in the presence of God, that you deserve the wrath and punishment of God, that you are hell‑bound. It means that you begin to realize that this thing called sin is in you and that you long to get rid of it and that you turn your back on it in every shape and form. You renounce the world whatever the cost, the world in its mind and outlook as well as its practices, and you deny yourself and take up the cross and go after Christ. Your nearest and dearest and the whole world may call you a fool or say you have religious mania, you may have to suffer financially, but it makes no difference. That is repentance."

Martin Lloyd Jones


Thomas Watson on Pleasure and Wrath

William Gurnall on Holiness

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 16, 2010 at 10:34 AM

"Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by this heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils."

William Gurnall


Jonathan Edwards on Humility

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"A truly humble man is sensible of his natural distance from God; of his dependence on Him; of the insufficiency of his own power and wisdom; and that it is by God's power that he is upheld and provided for, and that he needs God's wisdom to lead and guide him, and His might to enable him to do what he ought to do for Him."
Jonathan Edwards


Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Christianity

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"Religion is man searching for God; Christianity is God seeking man, manifesting Himself to him, drawing Himself unto him."
Martyn Lloyd-Jones


Charles Spurgeon on Discernment

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 9:00 AM

“Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.”
Charles Spurgeon

A.W. Pink on Salvation

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, April 12, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"The nature of Christ's salvation is woefully misrepresented by the present-day evangelist. He announces a Saviour from Hell rather than a Saviour from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived, for there are multitudes who wish to escape the Lake of Fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and worldliness."
A.W. Pink

Thomas Watson on Spiritual Growth

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 9, 2010 at 10:42 AM

"The right manner of growth is to grow less in one's own eyes."

Thomas Watson


Jeremiah Burroughs on Sin

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 8:32 AM

"What can break the heart of man more than to sit down and consider, “I am an enemy unto God, and I have been in enmity against God all my days. Therefore, what can I expect but that God should be an enemy unto me everlastingly.” This is that which will strike down the proudest heart in the world. And let me tell you, until you come to see sin like this, you do not see it to any purpose."
Jeremiah Burroughs

A. W. Tozer on God's Wrath

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 9:15 AM

"The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions."
A. W. Tozer

Richard Baxter on the Family

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, April 5, 2010 at 9:02 AM

“We must have a special eye upon families, to see that they are well ordered, and the duties of each relation performed. The life of religion, and the welfare and glory of both the Church and the State, depend much on family government and duty. If we suffer the neglect of this, we shall undo all. What are we like to do ourselves to the reforming of a congregation, if all the work be cast on us alone; and masters of families neglect that necessary, duty of their own, by which they are bound to help us ? If any good be begun by the ministry in any soul, a careless, prayerless, worldly family is like to stifle it, or very much hinder it; whereas, if you could but get the rulers of families to do their duty, to take up the work where you left it, and help it on, what abundance of good might be done! I beseech you, therefore, if you desire the reformation and welfare of your people, do all you can to promote family religion.”

Richard Baxter
(from: The Reformed Pastor)


Charles Spurgeon on Sin

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, April 2, 2010 at 10:59 AM

"Christ will be master of the heart, and sin must be mortified. If your life is unholy, then your heart is unchanged, and you are an unsaved person. The Saviour will sanctify His people, renew them, give them a hatred of sin, and a love of holiness. The grace that does not make a man better than others is a worthless counterfeit. Christ saves His people, not IN their sins, but FROM their sins. Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord."
Charles Spurgeon





Samuel Rutherford on the Will

"I pray God that I may never find my will again. Oh, that Christ would subject my will to His, and trample it under His feet."
Samuel Rutherford
