JC Ryle on courage

Let us all pray for faith and courage to confess Christ before men. Of sin, or worldliness, or unbelief, we may well be ashamed. We ought never to be ashamed of Him who died for us on the cross. In spite of laughter, mockery, and hard words, let us boldly avow that we serve Christ. Let us often look forward to the day of His second coming, and remember what He says in this place [Mark 8:34-38]. Better a thousand times confess Christ now, and be despised by man, than be disowned by Christ before His Father in the day of judgment.

  1. Without a doubt you hit the nail on the head. J.C. Ryle’s writings are so clear cut and sharp, that by while reading them, you feel as if Ryle talking directly to you. I discovered Ryle a few years back and have come to appreciate his no-nonsense, straightforward approach to writing and exposition of Scripture.
