Who holds whom?
Remember, sinner, it is not YOUR HOLD
of Christ that saves you-- it is Christ.
It is not YOUR JOY in Christ that saves you-- it is Christ.
It is NOT EVEN FAITH in Christ (though faith is the instrument)
--it is Christ's blood and merits.
Therefore, do not look to your hope,
but to Christ, the source of your hope.
Do not look to your faith, but to Christ,
the author and finisher of your faith.
If you do that, ten thousand devils cannot throw you down.
It is not prayer, it is not faith, it is not our doings,
it is not our feelings upon which we must rest,
but upon Christ and ON CHRIST ALONE!
Let me beseech you, look only to Christ; never expect
deliverance from self, from ministers, nor from any
means of any kind apart from Christ.
Keep your eye simply ON HIM!
Let His death, His merits, His glories,
His intercession be fresh upon your mind.
When you wake in the morning, look for HIM.
When you lie down at night, look for HIM.
