By the way, I LOVE  the blog J. C. Ryle Quotes! Just morning I looked at today’s post in my reader and read this from bishop Ryle,

Look not to yourselves! You are by nature wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked; you cannot make atonement for your past transgressions, you cannot wipe out a single page in that long black list. And when the King shall ask you for your wedding garment you will be speechless. Look simply unto Jesus, and then the weight shall fall from off your shoulders, the course shall be clear and plain, and you shall run the race which is set before you.

I can’t tell you how much I needed that this morning. Thanks so much Erik for letting J. C. Ryle constantly preach the gospel to me!
