The Heart by J.C. Ryle

The heart must be the principal point to which we attend in all the relations between God and our souls. What is the first thing we need in order to be Christians? A new heart. What is the sacrifice God asks us to bring to him? A broken and a contrite heart. What is the true circumcision? The circumcision of the heart. What is genuine obedience? To obey from the heart. What is saving faith? To believe with the heart. Where ought Christ to dwell? To dwell in our hearts by faith. What is the chief request that Wisdom makes to every one?

My son, give me your heart.

    Greetings! And thank you for blessing others with the wisdom God has given you. Question: I really like Noah Webster’s speller especially because of content. I’m looking for intensive phonics with excellent content too. We used The Ordinary Parents Guide… By Wise and Buffington, but there were wizards, troll talk… Am I too picky??? I hate teaching something that is not worthwhile. Only so much time in day! Alpha-phonics: learning sound morals? is content rich? Thank you for your time!
