Fight and Overcome


A needed warning to those of us who are well-taught in the doctrines of grace:

image

I often fear much for those who hear the Gospel regularly, I fear lest you become so familiar with the sound of its doctrines, that insensibly you become dead to its power. I fear lest your religion should sink down into a little vague talk about your own weakness and corruption, and a few sentimental expressions about Christ, while real, practical fighting on Christ’s side is altogether neglected. Oh! beware of this state of mind. ‘Be doers of the word, and not hearers only.’ No victory—no crown! Fight and overcome! (James 1:22).

—J. C. Ryle, Holiness (Banner of Truth, 2014), 316.
