JC Ryle on the Foundation of the Church

By Evan Knies

“The foundation of the true church was laid at a mighty cost. It needed that the Son of God should take our nature upon him, and in that nature live, suffer, and die, not for his own sins, but for ours. It needed that in that nature Christ should go to the grave, and rise again. It needed that in that nature Christ should go up to heaven, to sit at the right hand of God, having obtained eternal redemption for all his people. No other foundation could have met the necessities of lost, guilty, corrupt, weak, helpless sinners.” – pg. 293 (Holiness)

The past few weeks have been tough. The weeks ahead will be tough. Christians, remember that our foundation is Christ. Rest in the Foundation that does not crumble under pressure. Rest in the Sovereign Solid Rock of Christ.

You only get one life and it will soon pass. Only what is done for Christ will last!
