This is short but packed with truth.
Christ must be all!
“Christ is all!” Colossians 3:11
“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith!” Hebrews 12:2
We cannot keep our eye too exclusively or too intently fixed on Jesus.
All salvation is in Him.
All salvation proceeds from Him.
All salvation leads to Him.
And for the assurance and comfort of our salvation, we are to repose believingly and entirely on Him.
Christ the beginning–Christ the center–and Christ the end.
Oh sweet truth–to you who are sensible of your spiritual poverty, vileness, and insufficiency, and of the ten thousand flaws and failures of which, perhaps, no one is cognizant but God and your own soul! Oh, to turn and rest in Christ–a full Christ–a loving Christ–a tender Christ, whose heart’s love never chills, from whose eye darts no reproof, from whose lips breathes no sentence of condemnation! Christ must be all!
