ALL FOR CHRIST
“I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am” (Acts 26:29).
“That God may be all in all” (1 Cor. ).
All our teaching about consecration will be in vain, unless it come to that—God must be all. What is the meaning of our talk about giving ourselves as a living sacrifice? It cannot be, unless it is actually true that in our life God is all. What is the reason of so much complaint of feebleness, of failure, of lost blessing, of walking in the dark? It is nothing but this: God does not get His place amongst us.—Andrew Murray.
The most of the difficulties of trying to live the Christian life arise from attempting to half live it.—Henry Drummond.
My whole though broken heart, O Lord,
From henceforth shall be Thine;
And here I do my vow record—
This hand, these words, are mine;
All that I have, without reserve,
I offer here to Thee;
Thy will and honor all shall serve
That Thou bestow’st on me.
All that exceptions save I lose;
All that I lose I save;
The treasures of Thy love I choose,
And Thou art all I crave.
My God, Thou hast my heart and hand;
I all to Thee resign;
I’ll ever to this covenant stand,
Though flesh hereat repine.
I gave up all for Christ, and what have I found? I have found everything in Christ!—John Calvin.
