Build on the Rock

Continuing with the subject of yesterday’s post, J.C. Ryle also wrote:

“On whom must we build our souls if we would be accepted with God?  We must build on the rock, Christ.  From whom must we draw that grace of the Spirit which we daily need in order to be fruitful?  We must draw from the vine, Christ.  To whom must we look for sympathy when earthly friends fail us or die?  We must look to our elder brother, Christ.  By whom must our prayers be presented, if they are to be heard on high?  They must be presented by our advocate, Christ.  With whom do we hope to spend the thousand years of glory, and the after eternity?  With the King of kings, Christ.  Surely we cannot know this Christ too well!  Surely there is not a word, nor a deed, nor a day, nor a step, nor a thought in the record of His life, which ought not to be precious to us.  We should labour to be familiar with every line that is written about Jesus.”
