Instead of the usual Devotional today I am submitting for your reading and edification a short Sermon by J.C. Ryle.Thanks to my friend Steve Rebus @ The Whole Armour Of God for the inspiration for this.
Two of my favorite Ryle quotes are:
“My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of men; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth.”
“I am one of those old-fashioned ministers who believe the whole Bible, and everything it contains!”
The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus needs no introduction or context that Ryle’s sermon will not provide. So I will leave it at that:
J.C. Ryle, 1878
There is only one question that needs to be asked today are you Spiritually Rich or Poor?
