 (Heb.11:4)
 
Charles HodgeDied19th June 1878
 
It is important that when we come to die we have nothing more todo but die. 
 
 T 
he gospel is so simple that small children can understand it, andit is so profound that studies by the wisest theologians will neverexhaust its riches.
 
G
od secures the end by securing the means.
 
A
Christian is one who recognizes Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living
G
od, as
G
od manifested in the flesh, loving us and dyingfor our redemption; and who is so affected by a sense of the love of this incarnate
G
od as to be constrained to make the will of Christthe rule of his obedience, and the glory of Christ the great end forwhich He lives.
 
 T 
he doctrines of grace humble man without degrading him andexalt him without inflating him.
 
 
 T 
he ultimate ground of faith and knowledge is confidence in
G
od.
 
 T 
he best evidence of the Bible's being the word of 
G
od is to befound between its covers. It proves itself.
 
R
eligion is the source of joy and gladness, but its joy is expressedin a religious way, in thanksgiving and praise.
 
Christianity is that state of one's mind produced by faith in thetruths revealed concerning Christ. In this sense, Christianity without Christ is an impossibility! It would be an effect without itsproximate cause. Nevertheless, there is a form of religion,widespread and influential, which is called Christianity, in whichChrist fails to occupy the position assigned to him in the Bible.
 
A
ll truth is enforced on the heart and conscience with more or lesspower by the Holy Spirit, wherever that truth is known.
 
 T 
he proximate result of obedience to
G
od is inward conformity tothe Divine image.
 
Christian humility does not consist in denying what there is of good in us; but in an abiding sense of ill-desert, and theconsciousness that what we have of good is due to the grace of 
G
od.
 
A
ll true doctrine tends to humble men and to exalt
G
od; and alltrue religion is characterized by humility and reverence.
 
 T 
he Scriptures teach that the happiness or blessedness of believers in a future life will be greater or less in proportion to theservice of Christ in this life.
 T 
hose who love little do little; andthose who do little, enjoy less.
 
 
W
e know from Scripture and experience that many singlesentences of the word of 
G
od contain truth enough to save thesoul, and as the Spirit of 
G
od does sometimes make one suchsentence fasten on the conscience, and from that single germ, by his inward teaching, evolves enough of the system of truth toenable the sinner to receive Christ, to the saving of the soul, it isvery natural for us to be anxious to scatter the truth as rapidly and as widely as possible.
 
 T 
o be in Christ is the source of the Christian's life; to be likeChrist is the sum of His excellence; to be with Christ is thefullness of His joy.
 
 T 
o teach that we cannot know the Scriptures to be the work of 
G
od, except on the testimony of the church, is to teach we cannotsee the sun without the help of a candle.
 
In ourselves we are unworthy.
A
ll kindness towards us is of thenature of grace.
 
 T 
he hope of the hypocrite is like a spider's web; the hope of thetrue believer is an anchor to his soul; sure and steadfast.
 
Death to a godly man is like a fair gale of wind to convey him tothe heavenly country; but to a wicked man it is an east wind, astorm, a tempest, that hurries him away in confusion andamazement, to destruction.¶Friend, remember that it is better to read 1 quote 10 times(meditatively) than to read 10 quotes 1 time (superficially).·
