Living Upon Christ

We are as much to live upon Christ for sanctification as for pardon and justification.

The grace which delivers us from Hell also fits us for Heaven.  That grace which cancels our guilt also subdues our corruptions.  That grace which emancipates us from our bondage to sin equally dethrones the tyrant.

O wondrous, precious grace that, by its divine sanctity and power brings first one, and then another indwelling corrupt principle, passion, and desire of our hearts into subjection to Christ.

Precious and marvelous grace that molds and fashions us into the image of Jesus!

[Octavius Winslow]

Acts 20:32 ... And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Colossians 3:1 ... If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Romans 5:9 ... Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.❤
