Prayer is the remedy – JC Ryle

Prayer is the remedy – JC Ryle

Prayer is the surest remedy against the devil and besetting sins. That sin will never stand firm which is heartily prayed against. That devil will never long keep dominion over us which we beseech the Lord to cast forth. But then we must spread out all our case before our heavenly Physician, if he is to give us daily relief.

Saved for more than heaven – Leonard Ravenhill

Saved for more than heaven – Leonard Ravenhill

Without holiness, no one shall see the Lord. Jesus didn’t die to save us from hell. That’s a fringe benefit! He died to get total occupation of us. To be holy in speech … in actions … in everything.

God enables us to obey – Oswald Chambers

God enables us to obey – Oswald Chambers

If Jesus ever commanded us to do something that He was unable to equip us to accomplish, He would be a liar. And if we make our own inability a stumbling block or an excuse not to be obedient, it means that we are telling God that there is something which He has not yet taken into account.

– Oswald Chambers –
