There is GOOD NEWS! :)

1/17/2010

For those in Covenant with Him and to all others Invited—by total faith and abandoned confidence in His Blood: there is GOOD NEWS! : )

“How then to have our faith increased? Only by thinking of all that Jesus is, and all He is for us—His life, His death, His work, He Himself as revealed to us in the Word, to be the subject of our constant thoughts. Not a striving to have faith, or to increase our faith, but a looking off to the Faithful One is our need. Here, I feel is the secret: not asking how I am to get sap out of the vine into myself, but remembering that Jesus is the Vine—the root, stem, branches, twigs, leaves, flowers, fruit, all indeed. Aye, and far more too! He is the soil and sunshine, air, and rain—more than we can ask, think, or desire. Let us not then want to get anything out of Him, but rejoice in being ourselves in Him—one with Him, and consequently, with all His fullness. Not seeking for faith to bring holiness, but rejoicing in the fact of perfect holiness in Christ, let us realize that—inseparably one with Him—this holiness is ours, and accepting the fact, find it so indeed.” (Hudson Taylor)
