Hunger for His Word

When He comes to us in the garb of pain or sorrow

“He came unto His own–but His own did not receive Him.” John 1:11

We say that the Jews, “His own,” were very ungrateful to treat their Messiah in this way; and also that their rejection was a terrible wrong to themselves, for they thrust away in Christ, the most glorious things of Heaven and eternity!

But how is it with ourselves? Christ comes to us. He is continually coming. His hands are full of blessings. Do we really take from the hand of Christ–all that He offers to us? Do we not daily grieve Him and rob ourselves of blessings–by declining what He brings?

Especially do we reject Christ often–when He comes to us in the garb of pain or sorrow. Many times the blessings which He brings to us then–are the very richest and the most precious in all His treasury of grace!

But how many of us receive Christ as gladly, and take the gifts from His hand as cheerfully and gratefully, when He comes in grief or suffering–as when He comes in the garb of joy or worldly prosperity?

Why should we not do so? Can we not trust His love and wisdom?

He never sends pain–unless pain is best for us.

He never chastens us–unless there is a blessing in the chastening.

A most soul-ruining sin!

Posted by on Sep 9, 2011 in Grace Gems, J.C. Ryle | 0 comments

“I hate pride and arrogance!” Proverbs 8:13

It is a dreadful fact, whether we like to allow it or not–that PRIDE is one of the common sins which beset human nature. We are all born Pharisees. We all naturally think far better of ourselves than we ought. We all naturally imagine that we deserve something better than we have.

Pride is an old sin. It began in the garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve thought they had not got everything that their merits deserved.

Pride is a subtle sin. It rules and reigns in many a heart without being detected, and can even wear the garb of humility.

Pride is a most soul-ruining sin. It prevents repentance, keeps men back from Christ, checks brotherly love, and nips spiritual desires in the bud.

Let us watch against pride, and be on our guard.

Of all garments, none is so graceful, none wears so well, and none is so rare–as true humility. “All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, God opposes the proud–but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5

Thanks Grace Gems! (J. C. Ryle)
