Thoughts to Ponder Throughout the Day

Wednesday, January 9, 2008

“What men do by themselves they do for themselves. They eat their own fruit, devouring the praise of what they do. Only the Christian who does everything by Christ does it all for Him. He takes his nourishment from Him into whom he has been grafted; and this is what makes him fruitful.” – William Gurnall (The Christian in Complete Armour, Volume 2, p. 49)

“If he can do any duty, he acknowledges it is Christ’s strength more than his own. As the ship gets to the haven more by the benefit of the wind than the sail, so when a Christian makes swift progress, it is more by wind of God’s Spirit than the sail of his own endeavour.” – Thomas Watson

Soli Deo Gloria!
