The Great Business of Your Life

“It is ‘through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom of heaven.’ This is the way in which you must go, if you would ever enter there. You must make religion the great business of your life, to which everything else must give place. You must engage with your whole soul in the work, looking to the cross of Christ for strength against your spiritual enemies; and you will come off ‘conqueror at last,’ through him that hath loved us, and given himself for us.”  –Harvey Newcomb “A Practical Directory” (1851) p. 25

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
