In the sight of the coffin and the grave it is not easy to be proud.
Of all the things in the world that stink in the nostrils of men, hypocrisy is the worst.
The law may express sin but it cannot suppress sin.
Hope is the only tie which keeps the heart from breaking.
The grace that saves the sinner is the power that must supply the sinner.
Every Christian would agree that a man’s spiritual health is exactly proportional to his love for God.
That only is worth my having which I can have forever. That only is worth my grasping which death cannot tear out of my hand.
Reference: Sermons 29.509.
Time is short. Eternity is long. It is only reasonable that this short life be lived in the light of eternity.
Once a man is united to God, how could he not live forever?
God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.
A man’s greatest care should be for that place where he dwelleth longest; therefore eternity should be in his scope.
Eternity to the godly is a day that has no sunset; eternity to the wicked is a night that has no sunrise.
