FOOD FOR THOUGHT

   “The Gospel of God’s grace in Christ Jesus is not a thing to be proved, but truth to be believed.  It is not submitted to our reasoning powers as a subject for critical examination.  The Gospel is a MESSAGE FROM GOD, addressed to the conscience, feelings, and affections.  For this reason, men fond of argument and proving everything by strictly logical deduction generally make very poor preachers.  In the Scriptures, God does not argue, He proclaims!”

                                                                --J. C. Philpot
 

Taken with Christ

“My heart is taken with Christ.  It is raised and ravished with his love.  My soul is burning, my soul is beating towards Christ.  Oh, none but Christ, none but Christ!  I cannot live in myself.  I cannot live in my duties.  I cannot live in external privileges.  I cannot live in outward mercies.  I cannot live in common providences.  I can only live in Christ, who is my life, my love, my joy, my crown, my all in all.  Oh, the hearing of Christ affects me, the seeing of Christ affects me, the taste of Christ affects me, the glimmerings of Christ affect me!   The more I come to know him in his natures, in his names, in his offices, in his discoveries, in his appearances, in his beauties, the more I find my heart and affections to prize Christ, to run after Christ, to be affected with Christ, and to be wonderfully endeared to Christ.  Oh, God forbid that my heart should be affected or taken with anything in comparison of Christ. The more I know him, the more I like him.  The more I know him, the more I love him.  The more I know him, the more I desire him.  The more I know him, the more my heart is knit unto him.  His beauty is taking.  His love is ravishing.  His goodness is drawing.  His manifestations are enticing.  And his person is enamoring.  His lovely looks please me.  His pleasant voice delights me.  His precious Spirit comforts me.  His holy Word rules me. — And these things make Christ to be a heaven unto me.”
