Quotes, The Lord's Day

By Comparison

“What does it signify that we are more moral than ‘other men?’  We are all vile and imperfect in the sight of God. ‘If we contend with Him,we cannot answer Him one in a thousand.’ (Job 9:3)  Let us remember this.  In all our self examination let us not try ourselves by comparison with the standard of men.  Let us look at nothing but he requirements of  God.”


~J.C. Ryle (Expository Thoughts on Luke: vol. 2, pg. 261)
