Yesterday at 04:48 PM The duty of the theologian by chestnutmare
The duty of the theologian is not to tickle the ear, but to confirm the conscience, by teaching what is true, certain, and useful."

Yesterday at 04:46 PM We are not our own by chestnutmare
We are not our own; therefore let us forget ourselves as much as possible, and all that is about us. We belong to the Lord; let us live and die to Him; let His will and wisdom preside in all our actions; let all the parts of our life be referred to Him as their unique goal.
~ John Calvin

Yesterday at 04:45 PM Pride feeds off nearly anything by chestnutmare
Pride feeds off nearly anything: a fair measure of ability and wisdom, a single compliment, season of remarkable prosperity, a call to serve God in a position of prestige, even the honor of suffering for the truth!

Puritan Richard Mayo said of pride: 'It is hard to starve this sin, when it can live upon almost anything. If you would starve worldly pride and live in Godly humility, look to your Savior, whose life, Calvin said, was a series of sufferings. Nowhere is humility so cultivated as at Gethsemane and Calvary." Be reminded of all that He has suffered for you.

A Puritan Theology, Beeke and Jones, 968-969.

Yesterday at 03:05 PM Words are cheap by chestnutmare
It is not by telling people about ourselves that we demonstrate our Christianity. Words are cheap. It is by costly, self-denying Christian practice that we show the reality of our faith.

Yesterday at 03:03 PM Praying saints by chestnutmare
Jonathan Edwards must be placed among the praying saints—one whom God mightily used through the instrumentality of prayer. As in the instance of the great New Englander, purity of heart should be ingrained in the very foundation areas of every man who is a true leader of his fellows and a minister of the Gospel of Christ and a constant practicer in the holy office of prayer. A sample of the utterances of this mighty man of God is here given in the shape of a resolution which he formed, and wrote down:

“Resolved,” he says, “to exercise myself in this all my life long, viz., with the greatest openness to declare my ways to God, and to lay my soul open to God—all my sins, temptations, difficulties, sorrows, fears, hopes, desires, and everything and every circumstance.”

We are not surprised, therefore, that the result of such fervid and honest praying was to lead him to record in his diary:

“It was my continual strife day and night, and my constant inquiry how I should be more holy, and live more holily. The heaven I desired was a heaven of holiness. I went on with my eager pursuit after more holiness and conformity to Christ.”
~ E.M. Bounds
