Quotes on Personal Practical Godliness

Forest Path Poster by Hein Van Den Heuvel

To Really Profit

“Secondly, Remember, it is not hasty reading—but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee’s touching of the flower, which gathers honey—but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet. It is not he who reads most—but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.”

Thomas Brooks {Puritan}

Apparel

“They that borrow the fashions of the Egyptians may get their boils and their blotches. Certainly such as fear the Lord should go in no apparel but first, such as they are willing to die in; secondly, to appear before the Ancient of Days in; thirdly, to stand before the judgment seat in.”

Thomas Brooks {Puritan}

Not Just Talkers

“You must live religion as well as talk religion.”

Eleazar Mather {Puritan}

Avoid Sin

“When given a choice between two evils, choose neither.”

C. H. Spurgeon

Wise and Holy

“Whoever would be wise should read the Proverbs; whoever would be holy should read the Psalms. Every line in this book breathes peculiar sanctity.” [How good then to sing them? G.M]

Richard Steel {Puritan}

Disciplining Our Thoughts

“If you be careful what companions you have, and whom you lodge in your houses, and who live in your bosoms, them much more of your thoughts, which lodge in your hearts, which are not yours but God’s houses, built for himself, and for Christ and his word to dwell in.”

Thomas Goodwin {Puritan

Puritans! Or Just Readers of Them?

“A stirring of interest in the Puritans is not the same thing as a revival of Puritanism. We need the inward disposition of Puritanism towards evangelism. We need in our hearts, lives, and churches the authentic, biblical, intelligent piety the Puritans showed. Let us challenge one another! Who among us will live godly in Christ Jesus like the Puritans? Who will go beyond studying their writings, discussing their ideas, recalling their achievements, and berating their failures?”

J. I. Packer

Blessings to all who read and take to heart!
