Where must a person go? (J.C. Ryle)

"Where must a person go for pardon? Where is forgiveness to be found? There is a way both sure and plain, and into that way I desire to guide every inquirers feet. That way is simply to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior. It is to cast your soul with all its sins, unreservedly on Christ—to cease completely from any dependence on your own works or doings, either in whole or in part—and to rest on no other work but Christ’s work—no other righteousness but Christ’s righteousness, no other merit but Christ’s merit as your ground of hope. Take this course—and you are a pardoned soul."

~J.C. Ryle

  2. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. Your post caught my eye because of your correspond's quotation of Edward Mote's great hymn of testimony. (I posted an article on the hymn this morning.) But I love the quotation from Bishop Ryle. That's said about as clearly as it can be said! Amen from me, too.
