Happy are Those Christians Who Have Learned - JC Ryle

The Lord Jesus, we should remark, did not tarry long on the Mount of Olives. His communion with Moses and Elijah was very short. He soon returned to his accustomed work of doing good to a sin-stricken world. In His life on earth, to receive honor and have visions of glory was the exception. To minister to to others, to heal all who were oppressed by the devil, to do acts of mercy to sinners, was the rule. Happy are those Christians who have learned of Jesus to live for others more than for themselves, and who understand that is is 'more blessed to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35)

Taken from the book Expository Thoughts on the Gospels: Luke by JC Ryle 1858
