J. C. Ryle on Pastors and Sanctification

  • For one thing, let us awake to a sense of the perilous state of many professing Christians.
  • For another thing, let us make sure work of our own condition, and never rest till we feel and know that we are “sanctified” ourselves.
  • For another thing, if we would be sanctified, our course is clear and plain—we must begin with Christ.
  • For another thing, if we would grow in holiness and become more sanctified, we must continually go on as we began, and be ever making fresh applications to Christ.
  • For another thing, let us not expect too much from our own hearts here below.
  • Finally, let us never be ashamed of making much of sanctification, and contending for a high standard of holiness. (pg. 39-40)
