How We Should Live

Lady Reading
Live as if you thought that Christ might come at any time. Do everything, as if you did it for the last time. Say everything, as if you said it for the last time. 

Read every chapter in the Bible, as if you did not know whether you would be allowed to read it again. Pray every prayer, as if you felt it might be your last opportunity. Hear every sermon, as if you were hearing once and forever. This is the way to be found ready. This is the way to turn Christ’s second appearing to good account. This is the way to put on the armor of light. 

~ J.C. Ryle

Dear Ladies,

Can you imagine how life would be if we lived this way?  What a difference it would make!  What a difference our children and husbands would see in us!  Let us endeavor, with the Lord's help, to live this way, for His glory, and so that we might please Him.

  1. Reading J.C.Ryle here in your blog post is convicting. It goes straight to the heart. Oh, to be much more "present", purposeful, insistent, and fervent in my practices of the Christian walk. Thank you. Especially as the Scriptures say that is kind of walk "availeth much." James 5:16

    1. Yes, so convicting, I agree. You're very welcome, Karen, and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. We can forget these important things so easily and need to be reminded.


Thank you for visiting Blessed Homemaking!

I love to hear from you. I may not always be able to reply right away, but I read every comment you leave.
