A Thought to Ponder

“In ourselves we have no resources for the battle and journey of life; the fact that their source is outside of ourselves pleads for our trust in Jesus. Grace is not natural to us; holiness is not innate, and our native strength is but another term for utter weakness. Where, then, are our resources? All in Jesus. ‘It hath pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell’ (Col 1:19) ‘Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.’ (Eph 1:13). Christ is both the believer’s armory and his granary. The weapons of our warfare and the supplies of our necessities are all in Christ. The life we live as warriors and as pilgrims must be a continual coming to, and trusting in, a full Christ, an all-sufficient Savior.”

–Octavius Winslow

    Ingrid,

    You have a wonderful way about you that I appreciate. Your passion for Christ truly comes out in your blog. I listened to yesterday’s Crosstalk about Folsom street and I praise God for the radio program as well. Stay the Course!

    Blessings

    How blessed! I have just finished journaling my own thoughts on this topic, and how in our self-reliant culture it is hard to “Trust in the Lord with all [our] heart.” My honest prayer for myself and my brothers and sisters in the faith is that we would believe Jesus Christ at His word when He says to seek first the kingdom of God and not worry about tomorrow. May our Lord richly bless you and your family Ingrid. May you experience deeper intimacy and communion with your Beloved who calls you sister and spouse!
