Thoughts of Christ’s Blood at Death

“Cling to Christ, and make much of the old foundational truths concerning salvation by His blood. These are the old friends to which our souls will turn at last in the hour of our departure.

Never Rest Until You Are Justified

Let us never rest until we know and feel that we are reconciled to God. Let it not content us to go to Church, use means of grace, and be reckoned Christians, without knowing whether our sins are pardoned, and our souls justified.

Five Encouraging Words: “I Have Peace With God”

When the apostle Paul wrote his epistle to the Romans, he used five words which the wisest of the heathen could never have used. SocratesPlatoAristotleCicero and Seneca were wise people.

Is Your Life an Epistle of Christ?

Are you alive? Then see that you prove it by your actions. Be a consistent witness. Let your words, works, ways and tempers all tell the same story. Let not your life be a poor lethargic life, like that of a tortoise or a sloth—let it rather be an energetic stirring life, like that of a deer or bird.

Possessing An Eternal Perspective on Sickness

You need not be cast down by sickness. The eternal part of you is safe and provided for, whatever happens to your body. You may well look calmly on death. It opens a door between you and your inheritance.

Being Ready For Christ’s Return

Are you ready for the second coming of Christ? He will come again to this world one day. As surely as He came the first time, so surely will He come the second time. He will come to reward all His saints who have believed in Him and confessed Him on earth.

The Need to Plead Guilty

Without confession there is no salvation. The love of God towards sinners is infinite. The readiness of Christ to receive sinners is unbounded.

J.C. Ryle Christmas Sermon

Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, the son of David.— Matthew 22:42

Christmas is a season which almost all Christians observe in one way or another. Some keep it as a religious season. Some keep it as a holiday. But all over the world, wherever there are Christians, in one way or another Christmas is kept.

Tell Them About Christ

“Do you ever try to do good to others? If you do, remember to tell them about Christ. Tell the young, tell the poor, tell the aged, tell the ignorant, tell the sick, tell the dying – tell them all about Christ.

Possessing a Heart of Gratitude

Is your heart right? Then be thankful. Praise the Lord for His distinguishing mercy, in “calling you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Pet. 2:9).

Making the Choice Regarding Who You Will Serve

Do you wish your soul to be saved? Then remember, you must choose who you will serve. You cannot serve God and mammon. You cannot be on two sides at once. You cannot be a friend of Christ, and a friend of the world at the same time.

In Need of a New Nature

Without conversion there is no salvation. We all need an entire change of nature. Left to ourselves we have neither faith, nor fear, nor love towards God. We must be born again. Left to ourselves we are utterly unfit for dwelling in God’s presence.

Learning God’s Purpose of Affliction

Affliction is one of God’s medicines. By it He often teaches lessons which would be learned in no other way. By it He often draws souls away from sin and the world, which would otherwise have perished everlastingly.

The Great Sifting on the Last Day

The visible Church is now a ‘mixed’ body. Believers and unbelievers, holy and unholy, converted and unconverted, are now mingled in every congregation, and often sit side by side. It passes the power of man to separate them. False profession is often so like true; and grace is often so weak and feeble, that, in many cases, the right discernment of character is an impossibility. The wheat and the chaff will continue together until the Lord returns.

Beware of the Mere Love of Sermons

We may listen to a sermon with pleasure, while the impression produced on us is only temporary and short-lived. Our hearts, like the “stony ground,” may yield a plentiful crop of warm feelings and good resolutions.

Do You Have Compassion for the Lost?

We ought to feel compassion when we think of the wretched state of unconverted souls, and the misery of all men and women who live and die without Christ.
