What A Mercy ...

What a mercy, then, to be stripped of all, and have . . .
Christ for wisdom,
Christ for righteousness,
Christ for  strength,

Christ for purity,
Christ for power,
Christ for beauty,
Christ for holiness,
Christ for acceptance above,
Christ for our daily walk,
Christ for our daily work,
Christ for rest,
Christ for food,
Christ for medicine!  Yes, to know nothing among men or before God—but Jesus crucified and glorified!

[Ruth Bryan]

Colossians 2:10 ... And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Psalm 16:11 ... Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Ephesians 3:19 ... And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
