Like most of you, sometimes I don’t have the patience of reading a thick book. The reason jumps from limited of time, the book is too technical or I get bored easily. I know you have those reasons too. Thankfully, there are publishing companies that releases books that are under 100 pages long. Now, it doesn’t mean the book is short, it lacks substance or it’s not a satisfying read. Fortunately, there are books that are up to the challenge of having a few pages but meaty in content.

8 Favorite Quotes From the Book “Sickness” by J. C. Ryle

I’m going through some free e-books some publishers are putting online to help us make sense of what is happening in this world. John Piper quickly wrote a book about it which I throughly enjoyed. Now in this post we have a book from a 19th century preacher to read and help us reflect through this pandemic.

Here’s some quotes from the book, Sickness by J. C. Ryle published by Matthias Media. If you like these quotes, get the book by clicking here.

“Sickness is often one of the most humbling and distressing trials that can come upon a person. It can turn the strongest person into a little child, and make him feel like “the grasshopper [that] drags itself along” (Eccl 12:5). “

“…believe that God allows pain, sickness, and disease, not because he loves to trouble us, but because he desires to benefit our heart, and mind and conscience, and soul, to all eternity.”

“Sickness helps to make us think seriously of God, and our souls, and the world to come.”

“Many a creed looks fine on the smooth waters of health, which turns out utterly unsound and useless on the rough waves of the sickbed. The storms of winter often bring out the defects in a man’s house, and sickness often exposes the gracelessness of a man’s soul. Surely anything that makes us find out the real character of our faith is good.”

“One supreme duty which the prevalence of sickness places on us is that of living always prepared to meet God.”

“How shall we learn to bear sickness patiently, when sickness comes to our turn? We must lay up stores of grace in the time of health. We must seek for the sanctifying influence of the Holy Spirit over our unruly moods and attitudes. “

“By permitting suffering, he tests whether Christians have any feeling. Beware, lest you be weighed in the balances and found wanting. If you can live in a sick and dying world and not feel for others, you have yet much to learn.”

“I earnestly beg all sick believers to remember that they may honour God as much by patient suffering as they can by active work. It often shows more grace to sit still than it does to go to and fro and perform great exploits. I urge them to remember that Christ cares for them as much when they are sick as he does when they are well, and that the very discipline they feel so acutely is sent in love, and not in anger. “
