May Check-In

What Bible(s) did I read from this month? The Beyond Suffering Bible, NLT and the NKJV Chronological Study Bible. I also read Psalms in the KJV because I adore it.

How many books by J.C. Ryle did I read this month? I am still working on Old Paths. I hope to finish that one soon and start another.
Favorite quote(s) by J.C. Ryle:
It matters nothing who says a thing, and declares it to be religious truth; it matters nothing whether we like or dislike a doctrine. Is it in the Bible? That is the only question. If it is, we have no right to refuse it. If we reject a Bible truth because we do not like it, we do so at the peril of our souls, and might as well become infidels at once. This is a principle which ought never to be forgotten.

Am I keeping up with my Morning and Evening devotional by Charles Spurgeon? YES.
Favorite quote(s) by Charles Spurgeon:
Keep back no part of the precious truth—but speak what you know, and testify what you have seen. Let not the toil or darkness, or possible unbelief of your friends, weigh one moment in the scale. Up, and be marching to the place of duty—and there tell what great things God has shown to your soul!

How many books by R.C. Sproul did I read this month? Two.

Favorite quote(s) by R.C. Sproul:
I think the greatest weakness in the church today is that almost no one believes that God invests His power in the Bible. Everyone is looking for power in a program, in a methodology, in a technique, in anything and everything but that in which God has placed it—His Word. He alone has the power to change lives for eternity, and that power is focused on the Scriptures.

Did I read any Puritans or Reformers this month: I read some from Matthew Henry's commentary on Genesis.
Favorite quote(s):
What God has promised is as certain as if it were already done; and so it is said, whoever believes hath everlasting life (Jn 3:36), for all that believe will as surely go to heaven as if they were there already.
Did I complete at least one book from the TBR Pile challenge? Which one? No. But I'm *super* close to finishing the Beyond Suffering Bible. I just lack 1, 2, 3 John, Jude, and Revelation. I'll finish it this week for sure. I hope to have a review up soon.
