The Lord Jesus Christ is all anyone needs. No person professing to be a Christian needs anything new, anything modern, anything from any man or worldly creation, a denomination, a philosophy, a doctrine.

All anyone and everyone needs is the Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ alone. Christ preeminent.

Nothing else needed.

Pursue this path, prayerfully, repentant, faithfully and no other, and all will be well. No matter what may come. Eternity will be well with the Lord.

BELONGING TO JESUS

 

Reprinted from The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions

 

 

O HEAVENLY FATHER,

Teach me to see

that if Christ has pacified thee and

satisfied divine justice

he can also deliver me from my sins;

that Christ does not desire me, now justified,

to live in self-confidence in my own strength,

but gives me the law of the Spirit of life

to enable me to obey thee;

that the Spirit and his power are mine

by resting on Christ’s death;

that the Spirit of life within answers to

the law without;

that if I sin not I should thank thee for it;

that if I sin I should be humbled daily under it;

that I should mourn for sin more than other

men do,

for when I see I shall die because of sin,

that makes me mourn;

when I see how sin strikes at thee,

that makes me mourn;

when I see that sin caused Christ’s death,

that makes me mourn;

that sanctification is the evidence of reconciliation,

proving that faith has truly apprehended Christ;

Thou hast taught me

that faith is nothing else than receiving thy

kindness;

that it is an adherence to Christ, a resting on him,

love clinging to him as a branch to the tree,

to seek life and vigour from him.

I thank thee for showing me the vast difference

between knowing things by reason,

and knowing them by the spirit of faith.

By reason I see a thing is so;

by faith I know it as it is.

I have seen thee by reason and have not

been amazed,

I have seen thee as thou art in thy Son and have

been ravished to behold thee.

I bless thee that I am thine in my Saviour,

Jesus.
