(Octavius Winslow, "The Witness of the Spirit")
"From the fullness of His grace--we have allreceived one blessing after another." John 1:16
Child of God, all that can possibly want is treasured up in Christ!
You have . . .
no cross--but Christ can bear it,
no sorrow--but Christ can alleviate it,
no corruption--but Christ can subdue it,
no guilt--but Christ can remove it,
no sin--but Christ can pardon it,
no need--but Christ can supply it!
Lift up your heads, you who are poor, needy and disconsolate! Lift up your heads, and rejoice that Christ is ALL to you!
All you need in this valley of tears.
All you will need in the deepest sorrow.
All you need under the heaviest affliction.
All you need in sickness.
All you will need in the hour of death.
All you will need in the day of judgment.
Indeed, Christ is IN ALL too.
He is in all your salvation.
He is in all your mercies
He is in all your trials.
He is in all your consolations.
He is in all your afflictions.
What more can you want?
What more do you desire?
A Father who loves you as the apple of His eye!
A full Savior to whom to go, moment by moment!
"Therefore let us approach the throne of grace with confidence--so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:16
