Living upon Christ!
(Octavius Winslow, "The God of Grace")
We are as much to live upon Christ for sanctification — as for pardon and justification.
The grace which delivers us from Hell — also fits us for Heaven.
That grace which cancels our guilt — also subdues our corruptions.
That grace which emancipates us from our bondage to sin — equally dethrones the tyrant.
O wondrous, precious grace that, by its divine sanctity and power — brings first one, and then another indwelling corrupt principle, passion, and desire of our hearts — into subjection to Christ.
Precious and marvelous grace — that molds and fashions us into the image of Jesus!
