Promises of God

No Flowers Without Roots – JC Ryle

We cannot have flowers without roots, or fruit without trees. We cannot have the fruit of the Spirit, without vital union with Christ, and a new creation within.

– JC Ryle –
from Expository Thoughts on the Gospels (Volume 2: Luke 6:27-38), 1856

Sons and Daughters of God – Hugh Binning

Is there any privilege so precious as this, to be the sons of God (1 John 3:2)? What are all the relations, or states, or conditions to this one, to be the children of the Highest? It was David’s question, “Should I be the king’s son-in-law?” Alas! What a petty and poor dignity compared with this, to be the sons of God, partakers of a divine nature!

– Hugh Binning –
from the book Christian Love
1627-1653

The God Who Promised – George Kulp

The God who promised that He would take you through, no matter what may befall, is the same today, He will see you through until your soul shall be gladdened one day in the city where the sun never goes down. If I had my choice, I would rather be the son of a poor Christian man, rich with the promises of God, than to be the son of any millionaire on earth who did not know God. I would rather lean on God’s Word than on any man’ s money.
