Quote of the Week

"Obedience is the only reality. It is faith visible, faith acting and faith incarnate.
It is the test of real discipleship among the Lord's people."

J.C. Ryle (1816-1900), The Duties of Parents

Interesting that this quote is from a book with "parent" in the title. I'm so curious as to what children would write is the only reality, evidence of devotion to God.

Great quote from a great teacher of the faith. Obedience I'm afraid is underrated by us many times, maybe not thought of that much. Grace is so important but it's so that we will obey, and works to that end.

Finally posted a little something about Open Source. Sorry it took me so long.

It is the test of real love - if you love Me, you will obey my commandments - obedience=love
