Oh, you who want unfailing comfort – J.C. Ryle

JesusOnCross

 

“Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend!” Song of Songs 5:16

Oh, you who want unfailing comfort–I commend you to Christ! In Him alone, there is no failure.

Rich men are disappointed in their treasures.

Learned men are disappointed in their books.

Husbands are disappointed in their wives.

Wives are disappointed in their husbands.

Parents are disappointed in their children.

Statesmen are disappointed when, after many a struggle, they attain place and power. They find out, to their cost, that it is more pain than pleasure–that it is disappointment, annoyance, incessant trouble, worry, vanity, and frustration of spirit.

But no one was ever disappointed in Christ!

“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life!” John 6:68
