Quote of the Day


Think what the children of this world will often do for liberty, without any religious principle.  Remember how Greeks, and Romans, and Swiss, and Tyrolese, have endured the loss of all things, and even life itself, rather than bend their necks to a foreign yoke.  Let their example provoke you to emulation.  If men can do so much for a corruptible crown, how much more should you do for one which is incorruptable!  Awake to a sense of the misery of being a slave.  For life, and happiness, and liberty, arise and fight.  Fear not to begin and enlist under Christ’s banner.  The great Captain of your salvation rejects none that come to him.

J. C. Ryle Holiness p. 81
