Quote of the Week - Bishop J.C. Ryle

"Having Faith in the Actual, Living Christ. A true believer's religion does not consist in mere intellectual assent to a certain set of propositions and doctrines. It is not a mere cold belief of a certain set of truths and facts concerning Christ. It consists in union, communion, and fellowship with an actual living Person, Jesus the Son of God. It is a life of faith in Jesus, confidence in Jesus, leaning on Jesus, drawing out of the fullness of Jesus, speaking to Jesus, working for Jesus, loving Jesus, and waiting for Jesus to come again." --- Bishop J.C. Ryle

True Christians have a warm communication and fellowship with Christ. Christians must not view Christ as an impersonal and indifferent being, but rather as a loving being who is available 24/7 for their prayers and for helping them to resolve their most intricate situations.
