The Best Place for Our Souls

In my recent study of Mark 5:1-20, I came across this quote by the old Bishop of Liverpool, John Charles (J.C.) Ryle, that I thought was too good not to share.

"That place and position is most healthful for us in which we are kept most humble -- most taught our own sinfulness -- drawn most to the Bible and prayer -- led most to live by faith and not by sight. It may not be quite what we like. But if Christ by His providence has placed us in it, let us not be in a hurry to leave it. Let us therein abide with God. The great thing is to have no will of our own, and to be where Jesus would have us be." (J.C. Ryle, "Expository Thoughts on the Gospels")

Such wise words
