C.H. Spurgeon: Continue In Prayer

Spurgeons Sermons on Prayer

If you be a child of God, you will seek thy Father’s face, and live in thy Father’s love. Pray that this year you may be holy, humble, zealous, and patient; have closer communion with Christ, and enter oftener into the banqueting-house of his love. Pray that you may be an example and a blessing unto others, and that you may live more to the glory of thy Master. The motto for this year must be, “Continue in prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)

J.C.Ryle: The World Will Hate Us

Take Up Your Cross and Follow Lord Jesus Christ

Let it be a settled principle in our minds that the true Christian must always enter the kingdom of God “through much tribulation” (Acts 14:22). His best things are yet to come.

This world is not our home. If we are faithful and decided servants of Christ, the world will certainly hate us, as it hated our Master.

In one way or another grace will always be persecuted.

No consistency of conduct, however faultless, no kindness and amiability of character, however striking, will exempt a believer from the world’s dislike, so long as he lives.

It is foolish to be surprised at this. It is mere waste of time to murmur at it. It is a part of the cross, and we must bear it patiently.

The children of Cain will hate the children of Abel, as long as the earth continues. “Marvel not, my brethren,” says John, “if the world hates you.” “If you were of the world,” says our Lord, “the world would love his own; but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” [1 John 3:13 | John 15:18-19:4]

“Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.” Luke 6:22

John MacArthur: Rejection of the World

The Devil, Satan, has designed a system that the Bible simply calls “the world”

“Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” – 1 John 2:15

Genuine believers love God and reject the world and all its philosophies.

As the “god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4), Satan has designed a system that the Bible simply calls “the world.”

A.W. Tozer: The Word of God

“The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.”
