Quote to Consider:
J. C. Ryle: "When I speak of growth in grace,
I only mean increase in the degree, size, strength, vigour and power of
the graces which the Holy Spirit plants in a believer’s heart. I hold
that every one of those graces admits of growth, progress and increase.
I hold that repentance, faith, hope, love, humility, zeal, courage and
the like may be little or great, strong or weak, vigorous or feeble, and
may vary greatly in the same man at different periods of his life. When
I speak of a man growing in grace, I mean simply this—that his sense of
sin is becoming deeper, his faith stronger, his hope brighter, his love
more extensive, his spiritual–mindedness more marked. He feels more of
the power of godliness in his own heart. He manifests more of it in his
life. He is going on from strength to strength, from faith to faith and
from grace to grace. I leave it to others to describe such a man’s
condition by any words they please. For myself I think the truest and
best account of him is this—he is growing in grace."
