True & Better
[Moses] was a man in the middle. He was so identified with the people that God rebuked him for their sin, and he was so identified with God that he was a vehicle for God’s saving power.
But guess what? I know a better Mediator.
So completely was Jesus bent upon saving sinners by the sacrifice of Himself, He created the tree upon which He was to die, and nurtured from infancy the men who were to nail Him to the accursed wood.
O that day, when free from sinning, I shall see thy lovely face!
Full arrayed in blood-washed linen, how I’ll sing thy sovereign grace!
Come, my Lord! No longer tarry! Bring thy promises to pass!
For I know thy power will lead me till I’m home with thee at last.
Come thou Fount
I’m pretty keen to be free from sinning, full arrayed in blood-washed linen.
Open for me the wondrous volumes of truth in his, ‘It is finished’.
Prayer in the name of Christ ends with a calm and joyous Amen; for Jesus Himself is the Amen of God, in whom all promises and gifts of God are sealed.
The gospel was promised by sages and prophets
The Scriptures spoke of a Son
Descendant of David, and yet uncreated
Clothed in our flesh He would come
Predestined to seek us
He took on our weakness
And died our death on the cross
But just as was spoken,
The grave could not hold Him
The glorious Son of God
"Reasons why Believers Do not Grow as much as They Ought."
- They presume upon grace.
- They doubt their conversion.
- They are discouraged by their progress.
- They conform themselves to the world.
- They are lazy.
Wilhelmus a Brakel (1635-1711)
We see all the virtues of holiness perfectly aligned in Christ. He was always gentle, but never soft. He was bold, but never brash. He was pure, but never prudish. He was full of mercy, but not at the expense of justice. He was full of truth, but not at the expense of grace. In everything he was submissive to his heavenly Father, and he gave everything for his sheep. He obeyed his parents, kept the law of God, and forgave his enemies. He never lusted, never coveted, and never lied. In all that Jesus Christ did, during his whole life and especially as his life came to an end, he loved God with his whole being and loved his neighbour as himself.
If somewhere down the road you forget the Ten Commandments or can’t recall the fruit of the Spirit or don’t seem to remember any particular attributes of God, you can still remember what holiness is by simply remembering his name.
