“I ask not how peculiar, how aggravated, how
desperate, how discouraging, the state of your
soul may be. I hesitate not to affirm that such
is Christ, such His love, His compassion, His
fullness, His power. Your condition of soul
comes within the scope of His sufficiency.
Christ’s merit meets your demerit.
meets your backslidings.
Christ’s grace meets your corruptions.
Christ’s blood meets your guiltiness.
Christ’s fullness meets your emptiness.
Christ’s power meets your impossibilities.
Christ’s compassion meets your misery.
Christ’s sympathy meets your sorrow.
Christ’s intercession covers all
your circumstances and needs.”
As the Apostle John says of our Lord Jesus Christ’s, All sufficiency, “And of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” (John 1:16)
