Don’t try to please everyone – JC Ryle

Don’t try to please everyone – JC Ryle

We must give up the vain idea of trying to please everybody. That is impossible, and the attempt is a mere waste of time. We must be content to walk in Christ’s steps, and let the world say what it likes.

Put to Death – Oswald Chambers

If I do not put to death the things in me which are not of God, they will put to death the things that are of God.

No Man is Greater Than His Prayer Life – Leonard Ravenhill

No Man is Greater Than His Prayer Life – Leonard Ravenhill

No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing. The people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers. Many players and payers, few pray-ers. Many singers, few clingers. Lots of pastors, few wrestlers. Many fears, few tears. Much fashion, little passion. Many interferes, few intercession. Many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.

Serious Meditation On Holy and Heavenly Truths – Thomas Brooks

Serious Meditation On Holy and Heavenly Truths – Thomas Brooks

Remember that it is not a hasty reading, but serious meditation on holy and heavenly truths, that makes them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the mere touching of the flower by the bee that gathers honey, but her abiding for a time on the flower that draws out the sweet. It is not he that reads most, but he that meditates most, that will prove to be the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.
