“Let’s not automatically assume that our churches are faithful to the gospel.

Let’s examine whether they really are. After all, ‘Every institution tends to produce its opposite.’

A church with the truth of the gospel in its theology can produce the opposite of the gospel in its practice.”

~ Ray Ortlund
"The real test of a saint is not one's willingness to preach the gospel, but one's willingness to do something like washing the disciples' feet... ...that is, being willing to do those things that seem unimportant in human estimation but count as everything to God."
~ Oswald Chambers
"Some people do not like to hear much of repentance; but I think it is so necessary that if I should die in the pulpit, I would desire to die preaching repentance, and if out of the pulpit I would desire to die practicing it."
~ Matthew Henry
