The Good Fight

“Let us settle it in our minds that the Christian fight is a good fight—really good, truly good, emphatically good. We see only part of it yet. We see the struggle, but not the end; we see the campaign, but not the reward; we see the cross, but not the crown. We see a few humble, broken spirited, penitent, praying people; . . .but not the face of God smiling on them, the kingdom of glory prepared for them . . . there are more good things about the Christian warfare that we see.” – J. C. Ryle (Holiness [Hertfordshire, England: Evangelical Press, 1989], p62)
