Originally posted on The J.C. Ryle Archive:
Christ is always the same! It is this which makes the gospel so excellent and precious. We do not bid you depend on anything less than the tried corner-stone, the fountain whose water shall never fail – the city of refuge whose walls shall never be broken down – the sure Rock of Ages. Churches may decay and perish; riches may make themselves wings and fly away, but they who build their happiness on Christ crucified and union with Him by faith, that person is standing on a foundation which shall never be moved, and will know something of true peace.
