methinks we should rejoice

“If Christ only made salvation possible, than we are to execute the plan;

we are to face the enemy, to sustain the charge, and silence the battery;

we are to climb the steep, enter the breach, and bring off the standards;

and so, in all reason the honour and praise must be our own.

Whereas, the Gospel gives all the honour to the Captain of our Salvation:

He bore the heat and burden and heat of the dreadful day:

He made reconciliation for iniquity, and brought in everlasting righteousness:

so that all our officious attempts, like a pinnace arriving after the victory, should be told “It is finished”; the great salvation is already wrought.

And instead of being dissatisfied or disappointed, methinks we should rejoice, unfeignedly rejoice, in the accomplishment of the glorious work.”

–James Hervey. (I’m playing around with the format while I should be working on that paper.)

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
