Not Sorry for Serving

No man ever said at the end of his days, “I have read my Bible too much, I have thought of God too much, I have prayed too much, I have been too careful about my soul.”  Oh! no.  The people of God would always say, “Had I my life over again, I would walk far more closely with God than ever I have done.  I am sorry that I have not served God better, but I am not sorry that I have served Him.  The way of Christ may have its cross.  But it is a way of pleasantness, and a path of peace.”

J.C. Ryle  “Home Truths” 1859
