From J.C. Ryle, Daily Readings:
What think we of Christ ourselves? This is the one question with which we have to do. Let us never be ashamed to be of that little number who believe on him, hear his voice, follow him and confess him before men. While others waste their time in vain jangling and unprofitable controversy, let us take up the cross and give all diligence to make our calling and election sure.
