Quotations for June, 2025

Sunday, June 1, 2025
Feast of Justin, Martyr at Rome, c.165
Commemoration of Angela de Merici, Founder of the Institute of St. Ursula, 1540

I thirst, but not as once I did,
The vain delights of earth to share;
Thy wounds, Emmanuel, all forbid
That I should seek my pleasures there.
It was the sight of thy dear cross
First wean’d my soul from earthly things;
And taught me to esteem as dross
The mirth of fools and pomp of kings.
I want that grace that springs from thee,
That quickens all things where it flows,
And makes a wretched thorn like me
Bloom as the myrtle or the rose.
Dear fountain of delight unknown!
No longer sink below the brim;
But overflow and pour me down
A living and life-giving stream!
For sure, of all the plants that share
The notice of thy Father’s eye,
None proves less grateful to his care,
Or yields him meaner fruit than I.

We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.
... William Law (1686-1761), Christian Perfection [1726], London: W. Baynes, 1807, p. 273 (see the book; see also Mark 9:50; Isa. 1:15-17; 29:13; Matt. 5:13; 15:17-20; 23:25-26; Luke 6:45-46; 14:34-35; Rom. 8:26-27; Tit. 1:15; more at Heart, Life, Prayer)

Tuesday, June 3, 2025
Feast of Edward King, Bishop of Lincoln, Teacher, 1910
Commemoration of Martyrs of Uganda, 1886 & 1978

That appearance on earth as an individual is the crisis in the history both of Christ Himself and of the humanity He saves and leads. The ministry of Jesus, therefore, culminating in His death, is essential to Paul’s whole thought. If in certain aspects of his theology it is the death that bulks most largely—because it seemed to him to be the purest and most moving expression of what the whole life meant—he is quite aware that the ethical impulse given by the example and teaching of Jesus is of the very stuff of the Christian life. He alludes to the Gospel story but sparingly, but those who study his teaching most closely become aware that he is himself acting and speaking all through under the impulse of the life and teaching of Jesus. If he refuses to “know Christ after the flesh,” it means that he will not risk a harking back to the temporary conditions of the Galilean ministry when the Spirit of Christ is clearly leading out into new fields. The issues of that ministry have been gathered up in the new experience of “Christ in me,” and that experience gives a living Christ, who leads ever onward those who will adventure with Him, and not a prophet of the past, whose words might pass into a dead tradition.

Harold Dodd (1884-1973), The Meaning of Paul for Today, London: Swarthmore, 1920, reprint, Fount Paperbacks, 1978, p. 92 (see the book; see also Col. 1:19-22; Luke 17:20-21; John 6:56; 14:16-17; 17:26; Rom. 8:10; Eph. 1:17; Col. 1:27; 2:2-3; 3:11; ; more at Death, Historical, Jesus, Man, Minister, Past, Prophet, Theology, Tradition)

It doesn’t matter, really, how great the pressure is; it only matters where the pressure lies. See that it never comes between you and the Lord—then, the greater the pressure, the more it presses you to His breast.
... J. Hudson Taylor (1832-1905), Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret, Dr. & Mrs. Howard Taylor, Moody Publishers, 2009, p. 127 (see the book; see also 2 Cor. 1:8-9; 3:5; 4:7-11; 12:7-10; more at God, Strife, Trust)

Thursday, June 5, 2025
Feast of Boniface (Wynfrith) of Crediton, Archbishop of Mainz, Apostle of Germany, Martyr, 754

Next to the wicked lives of men, nothing is so great a disparagement and weakening to religion, as the divisions of Christians.
... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. IX, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon CCIX, p. 45 (see the book; see also 1 Cor. 3:3; Matt. 12:25; John 17:23; Rom. 15:6; 16:17; 1 Cor. 1:10; 11:18; more at Church, Evil, Greatness, Weakness)

Friday, June 6, 2025
Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945

Are we [missionaries] not dependent upon [the Holy Ghost] for every spiritual qualification necessary for our work, and for every real success in it? Do we want native pastors, teachers, evangelists, or deacons? It is the Holy Ghost who calls the right men to office, and fits them for the successful discharge of their duties. Do we long to see this people turn from their dumb idols and sins to the living God? It is the Holy Ghost alone that can convince them of sin, reveal Christ to their inmost consciousness, regenerate their souls, and lead them to faith and repentance. Do we wish to build up a holy spiritual Church in this land? Do we wish to see the Churches become self-supporting, self-governing, self-propagating? The Holy Ghost is the source of all power and efficiency, whether in the members individually, or in the Church collectively.

Griffith John (1831-1912), Records of the General Conference of the Protestant Missionaries of China, Shanghai: Presbyterian Mission Press, 1878, p. 39 (see the book; see also Acts 9:31; 6:2-3; 14:23; Rom. 8:13-14,28; 1 Cor. 1:22-24; 12:2-3; 2 Cor. 5:20; 2 Tim. 1:14; 1 Pet. 2:9; more at Call, Church, Duty, Evangelization, Faith, Holy Spirit, Minister, Missionary, Power, Regeneration, Repentance, Success)

It is fire that prevails. For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is the cause that sets men ablaze that wins converts.
... Samuel Chadwick (1860-1932), The Way to Pentecost, Hodder and Stoughton, 1932, p. 98-99 (see the book; see also Acts 2:41; 1:4-8; 4:5; 13:48; Heb. 12:29; Jude 1:22-23; more at Conversion, Fire, Holy Spirit, Man, Pentecost)

Sunday, June 8, 2025
Feast of Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath & Wells, Hymnographer, 1711
Commemoration of Roland Allen, Mission Strategist, 1947

It seems strange to us that there should be no exhortations to missionary zeal in the Epistles of St. Paul. There is one sentence of approval, “From you sounded out the word of the Lord,” but there is no insistence on the command of Christ to preach the Gospel... The Christians of the Four Provinces were certainly zealous in propagating the faith, and apparently needed no exhortation on the subject... Christians receive the Spirit of Jesus, and the Spirit of Jesus is a missionary spirit, the Spirit of Him Who came into the world to bring back lost souls to the Father. Naturally, when they receive that Spirit they begin to seek to bring back others, even as He did. [Continued tomorrow]
... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or ours?, London: World Dominion Press, 1927, reprinted, Wm. B.

Monday, June 9, 2025
Feast of Columba, Abbot of Iona, Missionary, 597
Commemoration of Ephrem of Syria, Deacon, Hymnographer, Teacher, 373

[Continued from yesterday]
The reason of our failure is, I believe, largely due to the fact that we quench that Spirit. We educate our converts to think... that none but duly appointed ministers may preach. We dread the possible mistakes of individual zeal. The result is that our converts hesitate to speak of religion to others. They throw the responsibility on the licensed evangelist and “the mission”...
We need to begin again to teach ourselves and our people what Spirit we are of, and to give liberty that the word of the Lord may have free course. When we do that, the Church will again reveal itself in its true character and become self-propagating.
... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or ours?, London: World Dominion Press, 1927, reprinted, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1962, p. 126 (see the book; see also 1 Thess. 5:19; Ps. 51:11; Eph. 4:30; 1 Tim. 4:14; 2 Tim. 1:6-8; more at Church, Conversion, Evangelization, Failure, Hesitancy, Holy Spirit, Minister, Mission, Preach, Zeal)

Tuesday, June 10, 2025

In perplexities,—when we cannot understand what is going on around us—cannot tell whither events are tending—cannot tell what to do, because we cannot see into or through the matter before us, —let us be calmed and steadied and made patient by the thought that what is hidden from us is not hidden from Him.

Dutton & cC., 1887, p. 83 (see the book; see also Heb. 4:13; 1 Sam. 16:7; 2 Sam. 18:13; 1 Chr. 28:9; Ps. 7:9; 119:105; Isa. 42:16; Matt. 10:26; Mark 4:22; Luke 8:17; 12:2; more at Patience, Sight, Tranquility, Trust)

Wednesday, June 11, 2025
Feast of Barnabas the Apostle

Come Love, come Lord, and that long day
For which I languish, come away;
When this dry soul those eyes shall see,
And drink the unseal’d source of Thee;
When glory’s sun faith’s shades shall chase,
Then for Thy veil give me Thy face.

Thursday, June 12, 2025

Constantly add the private means of grace, particularly prayer and reading. Most of you have been greatly wanting in this; and, without this, you can never grow in grace. You may as well expect a child to grow without food, as a soul without private prayer; and reading is an excellent help to this. I advise you to read, in particular, constantly and carefully, the New Testament.
... John Wesley (1703-1791), “To the Societies at Bristol”, The Letters of the Rev. John Wesley, v. IV, The Epworth Press, 1931, p. 272 (see the book; see also 1 Pet. 2:2-3; Ps. 1:2; 84:5-7; 119:15,48; Phil. 1:4-6,9-11; Col. 1:10-11; Heb. 6:1-3; 2 Pet. 3:18; more at Bible, Grace, Growth, Prayer, Soul)

Friday, June 13, 2025
Commemoration of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Apologist and Writer, 1936

Charity is a paradox, like modesty and courage. Stated baldly, charity certainly means one of two things—pardoning unpardonable acts, or loving unlovable people.
... Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), Orthodoxy, London, New York: John Lane Company, 1909, p. 174 (see the book; see also Matt. 5:46-47; 9:10-11; Luke 6:32-35; 15:1; 19:7; 1 Cor. 6:11; more at Charity, Forgiveness, Love, Paradox)

Saturday, June 14, 2025
Commemoration of Richard Baxter, Priest, Hymnographer, Teacher, 1691

Lord, it belongs not to my care,
Whether I die or live;
To love and serve Thee is my share,
And this Thy grace must give.
If life be long I will be glad,
That I may long obey;
If short—yet why should I be sad
To soar to endless day?
Christ leads me through no darker rooms
Than He went through before;
He that unto God’s kingdom comes,
Must enter by this door.
Come, Lord, when grace has made me meet
Thy blessèd face to see;
For if Thy work on earth be sweet,
What will Thy glory be!
Then shall I end my sad complaints,
And weary, sinful days;
And join with the triumphant saints,
To sing Jehovah’s praise.
My knowledge of that life is small,
The eye of faith is dim;
But ’tis enough that Christ knows all,
And I shall be with him.
... Richard Baxter (1615-1691), in Memoirs of Margaret Baxter, London: Richard Edwards, 1826, p. 403 (see the book; see also Ps. 52:9; 91:16; Matt. 6:27; 7:13; John 13:15; Rom. 6:4-5,8; 2 Cor. 13:4; 1 Pet. 2:21; 3:10-11; more at Christ, Death & Resurrection, Grace, Knowing God, Love, Obedience, Praise, Service)

Sunday, June 15, 2025
Trinity Sunday
Feast of Evelyn Underhill, Mystical Writer, 1941

Theology belongs in the pulpit, the school, the work-place, the family, and everywhere. Society as a whole is weakened when theology is neglected. Without a systematic application of theology, too often people approach the Bible with a smorgasbord mentality, picking and choosing that which pleases them.
... Rousas J. Rushdoony (1916-2001), Systematic Theology, v. I, Ross House Books, 2003, v.1, p. xv (see the book; see also Isa. 30:10-11; Deut. 4:2; 12:32; Jer. 6:13-14; Matt. 24:24; Mark 13:22; Luke 21:8; Gal. 1:6-9; Eph. 5:6; Phil. 3:1-3; 1 Tim. 4:1,16; 2 Tim. 4:3-4; Tit. 1:9; 2:1; 2 Pet. 2:1-3; 1 John 2:26; 2 John 1:7-10; Jude 1:3-4; Rev. 22:18-19; more at Authenticity, Bible, Family, Pleasure, School, Social, Theology)

Monday, June 16, 2025
Feast of Richard of Chichester, Bishop, 1253
Commemoration of Joseph Butler, Bishop of Durham, Moral Philosopher, 1752

Every Christian is, as it were, part of the dust-laden air which still radiates the glowing Epiphany of God, catch and reflect His golden Light. Ye are the light of the world—but only because you are enkindled, made radiant by the One Light of the World. And being kindled, we have got to get on with it, be useful.
... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The Light of Christ, New York: Longmans, Green, 1949, p. 41-42 (see the book; see also Matt. 5:14; Isa. 9:2; Acts 2:3; Eph. 5:13-14; Phil. 2:14-15; 1 Thess. 5:5; 1 Pet. 2:9; 2 Pet. 1:19; 1 John 1:7; more at Epiphany, God, Light, Revelation, World)

Tuesday, June 17, 2025
Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936

Have we ever seen holier men than the martyred John Bradford, or Hooker, or Usher, or Baxter, or Rutherford, or M’Cheyne? Yet no one can read the writings and letters of these men without seeing that they felt themselves “debtors to mercy and grace” every day, and the very last thing they ever laid claim to was perfection!
... J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), Holiness [1877, 1879], Sovereign Grace Publishers, reprint, 2001, intro., p. v (see the book; see also Rom. 11:32; Ps. 14:1-3; Eccl. 7:20; Matt. 5:48; Rom. 3:9-10,22-23; 2 Cor. 7:1; 13:11; Heb. 6:1; 1 John 1:10; more at Debt, Grace, Holiness, Mercy, Perfection)

Wednesday, June 18, 2025

The resurrection and ascension prove there is no reason to make false dichotomy between the spiritual and the material. That is a totally non-biblical concept. The material and the spiritual are not opposed. The fact that our bodies are going to be raised also speaks of this.
... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), Pollution and the Death of Man [1970], reprint, Good News Publishers, 1992, p. 56 (see the book; see also Luke 24:39-43,50-51; John 20:19-20,27; 1 Cor. 15:42; 1 Tim. 3:16; 1 John 4:2-3; 2 John 1:7; more at Ascension, Proof, Resurrection)

Thursday, June 19, 2025
Commemoration of Sundar Singh of India, Sadhu, Evangelist, Teacher, 1929

The hunger and the thirst of this heart of mine can be satisfied only with Thee who hast given it birth. O Creator mine! Thou hast created my heart for Thyself alone, and not for another, therefore this my heart can find no rest or ease save in Thee, in Thee who hast both created it and set in it this very longing for rest. Take away then from my heart all that is opposed to Thee, and enter and abide and rule for ever. Amen.
... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), At the Master’s Feet, Fleming H. Revell, 1922, p. 13 (see the book; see also Ps. 42:1-2; 63:1; 84:2; 143:6-7; Isa. 26:8-9; John 4:13-14; 7:37; more at Heart, Longing, Prayers, Rest, Salvation, Satisfaction)

Friday, June 20, 2025

It is for Christ’s sake that we believe in the Scriptures, but it is not for the Scriptures’ sake that we believe in Christ.
... Martin Luther (1483-1546) (see the book; see also Matt. 22:43; John 1:1; 1 John 1:1-2; 4:1-3; more at Belief, Bible, Christ)

Saturday, June 21, 2025

Our lives are full of supposes. Suppose this should happen, or suppose that should happen; what could we do; how could we bear it? But, if we are living in the “high tower” of the dwelling place of God, all these supposes will drop out of our lives. We shall be “quiet from the fear of evil,” for no threatenings of evil can penetrate into the “high tower” of God. Even when walking through the valley of the shadow of death, the psalmist could say, “I will fear no evil”; and, if we are dwelling in God, we can say so too.
... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), God of All Comfort, ch. 8 (see the book; see also Ps. 23:4-6; Matt. 6:27; Luke 12:25-26; Phil. 4:6-7; 1 Pet. 5:6-7; more at Death, Evil, Fear, God, Life)

Sunday, June 22, 2025
Feast of Alban, first Martyr of Britain, c.209

How often do we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to Him because we have nowhere else to go. And then we learn that the storms of life have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the desired haven.
... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood, v. I [1867], London: Strahan & Co., 1873, p. 353 (see the book; see also Ps. 107:21-30; Matt. 8:24-27; Mark 4:36-41; Rom. 8:28; more at Affliction, God, Guidance, Life, Weakness)

Monday, June 23, 2025
Feast of Etheldreda, Abbess of Ely, c.678

It is taken for granted by many that this house of clay was never intended either to be repaired or beautified by the renewing Spirit. The caged-eagle theory of man’s existence is widely prevalent—the notion that the soul is imprisoned in flesh, and is beating its bars in eager longing to fly away and be at rest—all of which may be very good poetry, but is very bad divinity... The redemption of the body, not its dissolution, resurrection not death is set before us in the gospel as the true goal of victory.
... A. J. Gordon (1836-1895), The Ministry of Healing, Boston: H. Gannett, 1883, p. 194 (see the book; see also John 5:28-29; Acts 4:2; 1 Cor. 15:12-14,49; 2 Cor. 5:1-4; Phil. 3:10-11,20-21; 2 Tim. 2:18; 1 John 3:2; more at Death, Existence, Goal, Gospel, Holy Spirit, Redemption, Resurrection, Soul, Victory)

Tuesday, June 24, 2025
Feast of the Birth of John the Baptist

Can any thing in this world be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth can come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster?
... Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), The Whole Works of the Right Rev. Jeremy Taylor, D.D., v. V, London: Ogle, Duncan & Co., 1822, Sermon XX, p. 298-299 (see the book; see also Luke 12:25-26; Pr. 16:33; Matt. 5:36; 6:27; more at Apologetics, Atheism, Creation, Folly)

Wednesday, June 25, 2025

On the divine side, I assume that God has been willing and competent to arrange for the Bible, including its record of Jesus, to emerge and be preserved in ways that will secure his purposes for it among human beings worldwide. Those who actually believe in God will be untroubled by this. I assume that he did not and would not leave his message to humankind in a form that can only be understood by a handful of late-twentieth-century professional scholars, who cannot even agree among themselves on the theories that they assume to determine what the message is. The Bible is, after all, God’s gift to the world through the Church, not to the scholars.
... Dallas Willard (1935-2013), The Divine Conspiracy, HarperCollins, 1997, p. xvi (see the book; see also Isa. 55:11; Ps. 1:2; 12:6; 19:7-11; 119:89; Luke 24:27,45; John 5:39-40; Rom. 1:1-4; 3:1-2; 1 Cor. 15:3-5; Col. 3:16; 2 Tim. 3:14-17; Heb. 4:12; Jas. 1:21-23; more at Bible, Church, Gifts, God, Jesus, Purpose, World)

Thursday, June 26, 2025

The most perfect preparation for this future, whatever it may be, is to die to every will of our own, and yield ourselves wholly up to his; we shall in this frame of mind, be ready to receive all the grace suitable to whatever state it shall be the will of God to develop in and around us.
... François Fénelon (1651-1715), Spiritual Progress: or, Instructions in the Divine Life of the Soul, New York: M. W. Dodd, 1853, p. 79-80 (see the book; see also Eph. 6:11-17; Matt. 6:24; 10:38; Mark 8:38; 10:21; Luke 9:23; 14:27; Rom. 13:12; 2 Cor. 10:4; 12:9; 1 Thess. 5:8; more at Death, Future, Grace, Will of God)

Friday, June 27, 2025

The spirit of prayer makes us so intimate with God that we scarcely pass through an experience before we speak to Him about it, either in supplication, in sighing, in pouring out our woes before Him, in fervent requests, or in thanksgiving and adoration.
... O. Hallesby (1879-1961), Prayer, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship, 1943, reprint, Augsburg Fortress Books, 1975, 1994, p. 172 (see the book; see also 1 Thess. 5:17-18; Ps. 5:1; 18:49; 38:9; Luke 18:1; 21:36; Rom. 8:26; Eph. 6:18; Col. 4:2; Heb. 4:15; 1 Pet. 4:7; more at Experience, God, Praise, Prayer, Spirit, Thanksgiving)

Saturday, June 28, 2025
Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200

There is no coercion with God, but a good will [towards us] is present with Him continually. And therefore does He give good counsel to all. And in man, as well as in angels, He has placed the power of choice (for angels are rational beings), so that those who had yielded obedience might justly possess what is good, given indeed by God, but preserved by themselves. On the other hand, they who have not obeyed shall, with justice, be not found in possession of the good, and shall receive condign punishment: for God did kindly bestow on them what was good; but they themselves did not diligently keep it, nor deem it something precious, but poured contempt upon His supereminent goodness.
... Irenaeus (c.130-c.200), from Adversus Haereses, The Writings of Irenaeus, v. II, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1869, IV.xxxvii.1, p. 36 (see the book; see also Rom. 2:3-4; Dan. 12:2; Matt. 8:11-12; 23:37; 25:41; Rom. 2:5,7; Rev. 12:7-9; more at Choices, Contempt, Counsel, Giving, God, Goodness, Justice, Man, Obedience, Possession, Punishment, Reason)

Sunday, June 29, 2025
Feast of Peter & Paul, Apostles

The Kingdom of God in the New Testament is both the life and the purpose of the world according as they agree with the intentions of the Creator. It is the efficacious and definitive shield against the threat which followed and had to follow sin, against the fatal danger, the annihilation which lay in wait for the world because the world is only a creature. The Kingdom of God is the final victory over sin.
... Karl Barth (1886-1968), Prayer, Westminster John Knox Press, 2002, p. 35 (see the book; see also 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Luke 17:20-21; Acts 2:38; 1 Pet. 1:3-5; 3:13; 1 John 2:1-2; 4:10; 5:3-4; Rev. 21:1; more at Danger, God, Kingdom, Life, Purpose, Sin, Victory, Will of God, World)

Monday, June 30, 2025

According to the Christian conception, a miracle is wrought by the immediate power of God... by the very God to whom the regularity of nature itself is due—by the God, moreover, whose character is known through the Bible... It is not an uncaused event, but an event that is caused by the very source of all the order that is in the world. It is dependent altogether upon the least arbitrary and most firmly fixed of all the things that are—namely upon the character of God.
... J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937), Christianity and Liberalism, The Macmillan Company, 1923, p. 87 (see the book; see also Matt. 14:14; Gen. 1:1; Matt. 12:38-39; Mark 16:20; 1 Cor. 1:22-24; 12:7; Heb. 2:4; more at Bible, God, Miracle, Nature, Power)
