Sufficient

04/13/2009

“Why do I make such a point of this?  I do it because in Christ alone “all fulness dwells” (Col 1:19), because in Him alone there is full supply of all that we require for the necessities of our soul.  Of ourselves we are all poor, empty creatures, empty of righteousness and peace, empty of strength and comfort, empty of courage and patience, empty of power to stand, or go on, or make progress in this evil world.  It is in Christ alone that all these things are to be found: grace, peace, wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.”

-J.C. Ryle, from Thoughts for Young Men

    Matthew,

    Solid quote by J.C. Ryle. I thought you and your readers might enjoy some more Christ-centered, gospel-saturated quotes from my relatively new site, J.C. Ryle Quotes.

    Be encouraged and strengthened by these God-centered quotes by John Charles Ryle, penned over a hundred years ago. I trust Ryle will continue to point you to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through his writings.

    Though he be dead, he yet speaks.

    Keep up the insightful posts/links.

    Soli Deo Gloria!
    To God Alone Be the Glory!
