The true Christian — J.C. Ryle

“The man who hears the word of God, and does it, is the true Christian. He hears the call of God to ‪#‎repent‬ and be converted, and he obeys it. He ceases to do evil, and learns to do well. He puts off the old man, and puts on the new. 1380866538He hears the call of God to believe on Jesus Christ for justification, and he obeys it. He forsakes his own righteousness, and confesses his need of a ‪#‎Savior‬. He receives ‪#‎Christ‬ crucified as his only hope, and counts all things loss for the knowledge of Him. He hears the call of God to be holy, and he obeys it. He strives to mortify the deeds of his body, and to walk after the Spirit. He labors to lay aside every weight, and the sin that so easily besets him. This is true vital Christianity. All men and women who are of this character are ‪#‎true‬ ‪#‎Christians‬.”
— J.C. Ryle (Luke 8:16-21)
