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

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

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“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.”

J.C. Philpot

“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. ”

Thomas Brooks


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

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, September 11, 2017 at 5:30 AM

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

Charles Spurgeon on Heaven

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, September 4, 2017 at 5:30 AM

"Brethren, is not this the very cream of heaven? There have been many suggestions of what we shall do in heaven, and what we shall enjoy, but they all seem to me to be wide of the mark compared with this one, that we shall be with Jesus, be like him, and shall behold his glory. Oh, to see the feet that were nailed, and to touch the hand that was pierced, and to look upon the head that wore the thorns, and to bow before him who is ineffable love, unspeakable condescension, infinite tenderness! Oh, to bow before him, and to kiss that blessed face! Jesu, what better do we want than to see thee by shine own light—to see thee, and speak with thee, as when a man speaketh with his friend? It is pleasant to talk about this, but what will it be there when the pearl gates open? The streets of gold will have small attraction to us, and the harps of angels will but slightly enchant us, compared with the King in the midst of the throne. He it is who shall rivet our gaze, absorb our thoughts, enchain our affection, and move all our sacred passions to their highest pitch of celestial ardor. We shall see Jesus."

Charles Spurgeon

“When I look to myself and see my vileness and wants, I am confounded with shame; but when I look to thee, and see thy fullness and all-sufficiency, I am confounded with wonder!”

James Meikle
