CHRIST'S HOLD ON US
There are moments when the eyes glisten with joy: and we
can say, "we are persuaded, confident, certain." I don't wish
to distress any one who is under doubt. Often gloomy doubts
will prevail; there are seasons when you fear you have not
been called, when you doubt your interest in Christ.
Ah! what a mercy it is that it is not your hold on Christ that
saves you, but His hold on you! What a sweet fact that it is
not how you grasp His hand, but His grasp of yours,
that saves you.
Yet I still belong to you;
you are holding my right hand.
