No Sinking Down

I am so challenged by this quote from J.C. Ryle:

“Men and women who hear the Gospel regularly, I often fear much for you. I fear lest you become so familiar with the sounds of its doctrines, that you gradually become dead to its power. I fear lest your religion should sink down into a little vague talk about your own weakness and corruption, and a few sentimental expressions about Christ, while real practical fighting on Christ’s side is altogether neglected. Oh, beware of this state of mind! ‘Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only.’ No victory—no crown! Fight and overcome!”

If you would like to read more of Ryle’s quotes, check out this blog for a daily dose.
