 Re: the morning watch.

"The more wicked men grow, the less ashamed they are of themselves; and the more holy men grow, the more they learn to abhor themselves." - John Berridge (1716 - 1793)

 Re:

"They preached fervently and directly. They cast aside that dull, cold, heavy, lifeless mode of delivery, which had long made sermons a very proverb for dulness. They proclaimed the words of faith with faith, and the story of life with life. They spoke with fiery zeal, like men who were thoroughly persuaded that what they said was true, and that it was of the utmost importance to your eternal interest to hear it. They spoke like men who had got a message from God to you, and must deliver it, and must have your attention while they delivered it. They threw heart and soul and feeling into their sermons, and sent their hearers home convinced, at any rate, that the preacher was sincere and wished them well. They believed that you must speak from the heart if you wish to speak to the heart, and there must be unmistakeable faith and conviction within the pulpit if there is to be faith and conviction among the pews."

- Excerpt from John C Ryle's, "Christian Leaders of The 18th Century"; First published 1885, This reprint edition 2002 by 'The Banner of Truth Trust'; from page 25.

 Re:

"With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward." - Psalms 18:26

"Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: He that doth keep his soul shall be far from them." - Proverbs 22:5

"They that are of a froward heart, are abomination to the Lord: But such that are upright in their way, are His delight." - Proverbs 11:20

"With the pure Thou wilt shew thyself pure: and with the froward Thou wilt shew thyself unsavory." - 2Samuel 22:27

"Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. And when the Lord saw it, He abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. And He said, 'I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. They have moved Me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. For a fire is kindled in Mine anger and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend Mine arrows upon them'." - Deuteronomy 32:18-23

"But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were are examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." - 1Corinthians 10:5-12

"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." - Matthew 5:4-8

Froward: "Turned or looking from (God). Perverse, that is, turning from with aversion or reluctance; not willing to yield or comply with what is required; unyielding; ungovernable; refractory; disobedient; peevish; as a froward child" - Webster's American Dictionary Of The English Language; 1812 Edition

 Re:

"Many assent to the truth of Scripture, and make use of it to paint their faces, but will not suffer it to get within them, nor come to near the heart,"(Page 106)

"No man is humbled or sincere with God, till he is willing to know the worst of himself."(Page 155)

"The Scripture was written to be transcribed into the heart, and it has its effect when the heart is in such full consent and agreement therein, that the Scripture might have been copied from it."(Page 105)

"We may find out the selfish stubbornness of our wills, unmortified desires, and earthly bent in small crosses, when we do not in greater. Great crosses seem to furnish some excuse for complaint, and nature is more pitied than blamed for sinking under them; but small ones, fretting and galling us, afford no refuge against conviction."(Page 128)

"we go to commentators for the most part, because we are afraid to take Christ and His apostles upon their own Word. If we had a simple faith, we should seldom want others to explain their meaning." (Page 104)

"The Scripture is unto us what the star was to the wise men; but if we spend all our time gazing upon it; observing its motions, and admiring its splendour, without being led to Christ by it, the use of it will be lost to us.
Perhaps it may be a good rule in the reading of Scripture, not to run from one passage to another, or suppose it a duty to read a certain portion of it every day, but to dwell upon particular passages, till they have in some measure done their office.
Everyone should apply Scripture to himself, as if it was written for him only.
Scripture reading is a feast indeed, when we find in ourselves a disposition to receive it in truth and simplicity." (Page 103)

- These quotes above were extracted from Thomas Adam's own diary, put into a book-form after he went into eternity, and titled, "Private Thoughts On Religion..."; Second edition; MDCCXCV

 Re:

"God may sometimes lead a good man to this saddest of trials, to know all that is in his heart as He left the good king Hezekiah (2Cronicles 32:31). We are not over-forward or over-willing to believe ourselves to be so bad as we really are in our hearts. We do not know what seeds of evil are sown there."

- Ralph Venning (Excerpt from his book, "The Sinfulness of Sin"; page 126; First published 1669; The Banner of Truth Trust, reprint edition 2008)

 Re:


"We need the reality of the Holy Spirit in our lives today more than ever before, for in our times without being equipped with the power of the Holy Spirit we are lost. Without the Holy Spirit, we will succumb to the satanic powers which are unleashed in the world, that race over the earth and draw increasingly more people under their dominion. However, when the Holy Spirit fills our hearts, we are not only armed for a spiritual battle but great things happen.” - Basilea Schlink

 Re:


"There is no use in running before you are sent; there is no use in
attempting to do God´s work without God´s power. A man working
without this unction, a man working without this anointing, a man
working without the Holy Ghost upon him, is losing time after all."
- D.L. Moody

 Re:


"[For Jesus], success could be summed up in three words: Faithfulness (Matt 25:21; Heb 11:6) fruitfulness (John 15:8) and finishing well (Matt 25:21; 2 Tim. 4:6-8)." - Neil Cole

 Re:

"An impediment in his speech had made him give up the thought of being a Covenanting minister, but here was his own Bible School where he taught youth to resist unto blood, striving against sin. In the summer time they held their classes in the sheepfold, and in the winter they sat around the peat fire in the kitchen. We rightly look upon John Brown of Priesthill as being one of our first founders of Bible Classes and Sunday Schools."

- Taken from the blessed book, "Fair Sunshine: Character Studies of the Scottish Covenanters", by Jock Purves; The Banner of Truth Trust: Reprint edition 2015; page 53

 Re:

(45)"But and if that servant say in his heart, 'My lord delayeth his coming'; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

(46)The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

(47)And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes."

- The Words of Christ Jesus (Luke 12:45-47; kjv)
