The Christian’s Daily Battle

Every step along the path of life is a battle for the Christian to keep two eyes on Christ….If I may speak my own experience, I find that to keep my eye simply on Christ, as my peace, and my life, is by far the hardest part of my calling….I approach the throne of grace encumbered with a thousand distractions of thought, each of which seems to engage more of my attention than the business I have in hand.

– John Newton, quoted in Newton on the Christian Life, p 16.
