If Christ be anything, he must be everything.
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
How unspeakably wonderful to know that all our concerns are held in hands the bled for us.
John Newton (1725 – 1807)
We cannot behold the glory of Christ by conjuring up pictures of him in the mind and by trying to form the shape of a person in heaven in our imaginations. The way to behold the glory of Christ is by the steady exercise of faith on the revelation of this glory of Christ given to us in Scripture. It is our duty, therefore, constantly to meditate on the glory of Christ. This will fill us with joy which will, in turn, move us to meditate on his glory more and more.
John Owne, (ed. by R. J. K Law), The Glory of Christ (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth Trust, 1994), 67.
Your extremity shall be the Redeemer’s opportunity to help you. Make your wants known unto him, he careth for you.
George Whitefield (1714 – 1770)
I REALLY struggle with this!
“The plainest words are the profitablest oratory in the weightiest matters.”
Richard Baxter (1615-1691)
