Biblical Womanhood, Life in Ministry, Quotes, The Lord's Day, Thinking Biblically



“…I cannot read the Bible without desiring to see many believers more spiritual, more holy, more single-eyed, more heavenly-minded, more wholehearted than they are in the nineteenth century.  I want to see among believers more of a pilgrim spirit, a more decided separation from the world, a conversation more evidently in heaven, a closer walk with God….”  ~J.C. Ryle, Holiness




Although these words were originally written about the church in nineteenth century England, this is my prayer for the Christians of twenty-first century America.

    1. Katy, as I read it, I had a hard time believing that it was written in the 19th century…The whole book is entirely “relevant” to Christians today. (I just picked up JC Ryle’s “The Christian Race” and I can’t wait to get started!)
