None But Jesus

“Oh, this day, let your people feel that there is now no condemnation for them.
Let them feel
             the completeness of the washing Christ has given, 
             the fulness of the righteousness he has imputed, 
             the eternal vitality of the life he has endowed,
             the indissoluble character of the union
             by which we are knit to Christ
             with ties that never can be broken.
May we today rejoice in Christ Jesus and have no confidence in the flesh.
May we write upon our hearts these blessed words:
 "filled [with] all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3 v 19).
May we know that we have all that we can hold.
And may we pray to be enlarged,
    that we may take in even more of Christ
       than we have yet received.
For he is all ours, altogether ours, 
    and ours world without end.”
Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
