Quote of the Day #136 - J. C. Ryle


A quote from J. C. Ryle on regeneration:
Life is the mightiest of all possessions. From death to life is the mightiest of all changes. And no change short of this will ever avail to fit man's soul for heaven.

It is not a little mending and alteration, a little cleansing and purifying, a little painting and patching, a little turning over a new leaf and putting on a new outside that is wanted. It is the bringing in of something altogether new, the planting within us of a new nature, a new being, a new principle, a new mind; this alone, and nothing less than this, will ever meet the necessities of man's soul. We need not merely a new skin, but a new heart.
~J. C. Ryle (Alive Or Dead?)
