“I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me
and gave Himself for me!” Galatians 2:20
That the believer may live cheerfully and comfortably,
he is exhorted to the free and constant use of Christ.
O consider—Christ is given to us—to be enjoyed by us!
He is the bread of life. We are to feed upon Him daily.
He is the water of life, which our souls are to drink of
He is our righteousness. We are to put Him on continually.
So then, we not only have a precious Christ—but we are
also to use Him—and enjoy His preciousness! He is not
only a well of salvation—but we must draw water out of
it with joy—and drink of it to the refreshing of our souls!
Deeply consider, that without this inward enjoyment
of Christ—you cannot be . . .
happy in your soul,
comfortable in your walk,
nor holy in your life.
We must live by faith upon Christ—so as to derive a
continual supply of grace, comfort, and strength
from Him! “I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved
me and gave Himself for me!” Galatians 2:20
