3 Ryle: It is that Simple

HT to the Ryle Quotes blog:

“Begin reading your Bible this very day. The way to do a thing is to do it, and the way to read the Bible is actually to read it. It is not meaning, or wishing, or resolving, or intending, or thinking about it; that will not advance you one step. You must positively read. There is no royal road in this matter, any more than in the matter of prayer. If you cannot read yourself, you must persuade somebody else to read to you. But one way or another, through eyes or ears, the words of Scripture must actually pass before your mind.”

~ J.C. Ryle

Practical Religion, “Bible Reading”, 131.

You bet - and best to you also. I don't know if you've followed things, but I've gotten quite involved in internet podcasting with Covenant Radio, a Reformed podcast with interviews with folks like Horton, Beeke, Scott Clark, etc., and a new streaming venture Sola5 Radio that carries CR back-podcasts, White Horse Inn, lectures by Beeke, Alan Cairns, Joe Morecraft, etc. Check 'em out - we'd love to see more listeners!
