We Hold And Teach by J.C. Ryle

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

j-c-ryle-6(J. C. Ryle)

“All Scripture is inspired by God and is  profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”     2 Timothy 3:16-17

(1) We hold and teach–that the Bible is the only rule of faith and practice; and it alone is able to make a man wise unto salvation.

(2) We hold and teach
–that we are accounted righteous before God–only for the merit of our Lord Jesus Christ, by faith–and not for our own works and deservings. We maintain that in the matter of our justification, our own goodness and holiness have nothing whatever to do.

(3) We hold and teach–that good works, which follow after justification, spring necessarily out of a true and living faith. We maintain that a
living faith may be as evidently discerned, by the good works which spring from it–as a tree is discerned by its fruit; and that, consequently,
the man in whom no good works and holiness can be seen–is not yet a converted man.

(4) We hold and teach–that repentance, faith, holiness of heart and life, justification, conversion, union with Christ, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit–are the primary and principal things in true religion. We maintain that other points of doctrine, however important and valuable in their due place, are by comparison, things of secondary importance.

“Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.” 2 Tim. 4:2

Thousands Imagine That They Are Humble by J.C. Ryle

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

j-c-ryle-3(J. C. Ryle, “The Gospel of Luke” 1858)

“A dispute arose among them as to which of them  was considered to be greatest.”  Luke 22:24

See how firmly pride and love of preeminence can stick to the hearts of Christian men.

The sin before us is a very old one . . .
ambition,
self esteem, and
self conceit
lie deep at the bottom of all men’s hearts, and often in the hearts where they are least suspected.

Thousands imagine that they are humble, who cannot bear to see an equal more honored and favored than themselves!

The quantity of envy and jealousy in the world is a glaring proof of the prevalence of pride.

Let us live on our guard against this sore disease, if we make any profession of serving Christ. The harm that it has done to the Church of Christ is far beyond calculation.

Let us learn to take pleasure in the prosperity of others, and to be content with the lowest place for ourselves.

The Most Gorgeous Cathedral Service by J.C. Ryle

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

j-c-ryle-6(J. C. Ryle, “The Gospel of John”)

“God is spirit, and His worshipers must  worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24

Note the utter uselessness of any religion which only consists of formality. The Samaritan woman, when awakened to spiritual concern, started questions about the comparative merits of the Samaritan and Jewish modes of worshiping God.

Our Lord tells her that true and acceptable worship depends not on the place in which it is offered, but on the state of the worshiper’s heart.

The principle contained in these sentences can never be too strongly impressed on professing Christians. We are all naturally inclined to make religion a mere matter of outward forms and ceremonies, and to attach an excessive importance to our own particular manner of worshiping God.

We must beware of this spirit, and especially when we first begin to think seriously about our souls.

The heart is the principal thing in all our approaches to God. “The Lord looks on the heart.” (1 Sam. 16:7)

The most gorgeous ‘cathedral service’ is offensivein God’s sight
, if all is gone through coldly, heartlessly,
and without grace.

The feeblest gathering of three or four poor believers in a lowly cottage to read the Bible and pray, is a more
acceptable sight to Him who searches the heart, than the fullest congregation which is ever gathered in St.
Peter’s at Rome.
