You have a heart fit to do the deed!

You have a heart fit to do the deed!

(J.C. Ryle, “The Gospel of Luke” 1858)

“But they kept shouting: Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” Luke 23:21 

Let us often pray that we may thoroughly understand the sinfulness of man’s heart. 

Christ is never fully valued–until sin is clearly seen. 

We must know the depth and malignity of our disease–in order to appreciate the great Physician.

Few of us, it may be feared, have the least conception of the strength and virulence of the spiritual disease with which we are born! Few entirely realize that “the carnal mind is enmity against God,” and that unconverted human nature, if it had the power–would cast its Maker down from His throne and crucify Him! 

The behavior of the Jews before us–is only a picture of what every natural man would do to God, if he only could! 

If the bosom of God were within the reach of men, it would be stabbed a million of times in one moment! If the bosom of God were now within your reach, and one blow would rid the universe of God–you have a heart fit to do the deed!” Robert Murray M’Cheyne

You will never come to the bottom of these depths!

“Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved–and this is my Friend!” Song of Songs 5:16

Learn much of the Lord Jesus. For every look at yourself–take ten looks at Christ!

Such infinite majesty, and yet such meekness and grace–and all for sinners, even the chief!

Unfathomable oceans of grace are in Christ for you. Dive and dive again–you will never come to the bottom of these depths! Yes, He is altogether lovely!

Live much in His smiles–bask in His beams. Feel His all-seeing eye settled on you in love, and repose in His almighty arms!

Live near to Him–and all worldly things will appear little to you in comparison.

“Lord, make me as holy as a pardoned sinner can be!”

One of a preacher’s first duties!

“A man cannot be a faithful minister, until he preaches Christ for Christ’s sake — until he gives up striving to attract people to himself, and seeks only to attract them to Christ!” ~ Robert Murray M’Cheyne

“To efface one’s self is one of a preacher’s first duties!
