The Power of Christ Towards His People

Posted by on Jun 20, 2011 in Grace Gems, J.C. Ryle | 0 comments

It is a blessed and comfortable thought, that all this almighty power of our Lord Jesus Christ is engaged on behalf of His believing people. He has undertaken to save every one of them to the uttermost, and He is “mighty to save.” The trials of His people are often many and great. The devil never ceases to make war against them. The rulers of this world frequently persecute them. The very heads of the Church, who ought to be tender shepherds, are often bitterly opposed to the truth as it is in Jesus. Yet, notwithstanding all this, Christ’s people shall never be entirely forsaken. Though severely harassed, they shall not be destroyed. Though cast down, they shall not be cast away. At the darkest time let true Christians rest in the thought, that greater is He who is for them than all those who are against them.

My friend, how is it with you?

Posted by on Jun 15, 2011 in Grace Gems, James Smith | 0 comments

“That Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain!” Philippians 1:20, 21

Paul’s third all-absorbing desire was to MAGNIFY Christ!

Paul desired to exhibit and exalt Christ!

If he wrote–he wrote of Christ.
If he spoke–he spoke of Christ.
If he suffered–he suffered for Christ.
If he sorrowed–it was because professors dishonored Christ.

Christ was to him dearer than the apple of his eye–and more precious than all things in earth or Heaven! He would live–if he could honor Jesus; or he would die for Him–if that would honor Him more.

He felt his obligation to Christ.
He was inflamed with Christ’s love.
He was a sacrifice on Christ’s altar.
He was a vessel for Christ’s honor.
He would go anywhere, he would do anything–if he might but honor Christ. Heartily he would say, “Let the name of Paul perish, if the name of Christ can be magnified thereby!”

To him Christ was, in fact, all and all. He died for Christ; the honor of Christ was the end for which he laid down his life.

My friend, how is it with you?

Does your heart cry, “Oh, that I could honor Christ!”

Does your life make this impression on others: “That person aims to honor Christ!” 

Is it your daily cry and prayer: “Let Christ be magnified in me, by me, and through me–in life, in death, in time, and forever!”

Oh my soul, let it be my constant desire and prayer–that Jesus, my Jesus, may be magnified by me!

(James Smith, “Paul’s Seven Wishes” 1856)
