Meditating On Truth

Wherefore all theology, when separated from Christ, is not only vain and confused, but is also mad, deceitful, and spurious; for, though the philosophers sometimes utter excellent sayings, yet they have nothing but what is short-lived, and even mixed up with wicked and erroneous sentiments. ~ John Calvin

“Science means exact knowledge. To call by such a name the wile guesses  of evolutionists and infidel biologists is but word-prostitution.” ~ H. A. Ironside

“It is glorious beyond description to have Him give us glimpses of Himself that seem to entice our souls almost out of the body, and draw us away with such inward pantings, that the heart seems to leap and bound upward into the Heavenly world.”  ~ Watson

“If I profess, with the loudest voice and clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God, except that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking. I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I maybe professing Him. Where the battle rages, THERE the loyalty of the soldier is proved. It is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.” ~ Martin Luther

“The full thrust of your life is to be only one thing: that God be glorified, that the Kingdom of Christ advance.” ~ Paul Washer

“Secondly, Remember, it is not hasty reading—but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee’s touching of the flower, which gathers honey—but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet. It is not he who reads most—but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.” ~ Thomas Brooks

“A stirring of interest in the Puritans is not the same thing as a revival of Puritanism. We need the inward disposition of Puritanism towards evangelism. We need in our hearts, lives, and churches the authentic, biblical, intelligent piety the Puritans showed. Let us challenge one another! Who among us will live godly in Christ Jesus like the Puritans? Who will go beyond studying their writings, discussing their ideas, recalling their achievements, and berating their failures?” ~ J. I. Packer
