Acquainted With Your Bible – J.C. Ryle


great sermons header
John Charles Ryle (May 10, 1816 – June 10, 1900) was an evangelical Anglican clergyman and first Bishop of Liverpool. He was renowned for his powerful preaching and extensive tracts. John C. Ryle was a big man, physically, intellectually, scripturally and spiritually. The fact is that Ryle, though very definitely a Victorian of the Victorians, seemed to be able to leave behind him the verbosity and sentimentality of many of his contemporaries so that his writings still speak today, not only to the older generations, but to younger Christians as well.

Be Thoroughly Acquainted
With Your Bible

Let us learn the high authority of the Bible, and the immense value of a knowledge of its contents. Let us read it, search into it, pray over it, diligently, perseveringly, unweariedly. Let us strive to be so thoroughly acquainted with its pages, that its text may abide in our memories, and stand ready at our right hand in the day of need.

Let us be able to appeal from every perversion and false interpretation of its meaning to those thousand plain passages, which are written as it were with a sunbeam. The Bible is indeed a sword, (Hebrews 4;12) but we must take heed that we know it well, if we would use it with effect.
