"Oh, if you would follow Christ, be not content with the world's Christianity! Tremble, tremble and repent." - J.C. Ryle

The most beautiful leading does not put songs or talent, clever showmanship or impressive production on display - it says 'come and see what I have seen.' And we can only say 'come and see,' when we have first seen. When we have gazed upon the beauty of the Lord and inquired in His temple (Ps 27:4).

The world's Christianity never makes you tremble. The world's Christianity never asks you to repent. The world's Christianity never says 'look,' because it has never truly seen.

Be not content with leading a song that you have not first dug in deep with His Word and His Spirit... because true sight is seeing, believing and knowing that there is more to be seen than the world sees.
