When I read the title of this quote this morning I knew I had to post it. It comes from Eric at www.jcrylequotes.com. I would like to say thanks to Eric. If you are familiar with Ryle and like his writing you will like this site. I encourage you to check it out.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Romans 15:13

Take Courage That Christ Knows All

“Oh, what a blessed and comfortable thing to be known by Christ, known and marked as His friends, His relations, His dear children, His beloved family, His purchased possession! Here we are often cast down, often discouraged, often persecuted, often spoken against, often misunderstood—but let us take courage, our Lord and Master knows all. A day shall come when we shall no longer see through a glass darkly—but face to face—a day when we shall know even as we are now known; for the union between us and our Redeemer, which we so often feel disposed to doubt, shall then be clearly seen, and we shall no more go out to battle.”
~ J.C. Ryle
