“The life of grace is begun, and carried on, in a constant way of dependence upon God; he will not trust us with a stock of grace in our own hands; but our life is in Christ’s hands: ‘He that has the Son has life’ 1 John 5:12. …Christ made the purchase, and therefore it pleased the Father that the purchased treasure should be put into his hands, and not immediately into ours. …We have nothing but what we have daily from Christ, and in Christ; he must influence us, and without him we can do nothing (John 15:5). Apart from him, we can do nothing; therefore we cannot quicken ourselves; for God has reserved this life of grace, and kept it in his own hands, that we may have our daily supplies from Christ.” –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119 – Vol. 2) p. 282
Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
