(William Mason, “The Believers Pocket Companion”)
“I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me!” Galatians 2:20
That the believer may live cheerfully and comfortably, he is exhorted to the free and constant use of Christ.
O consider: Christ is given to us — to be enjoyed by us!
He is the bread of life — we are to feed upon Him daily.
He is the water of life, which our souls are to drink of constantly.
He is our righteousness — we are to put Him on continually.
So then, we not only have a precious Christ — but we are also to use Him, and enjoy His preciousness! He is not only a well of salvation — but we must draw water out of it with joy — and drink of it to the refreshing of our souls!
Deeply consider, that without this inward enjoyment of Christ — you cannot be . . .
happy in your soul,
comfortable in your walk,
nor holy in your life.
We must live by faith upon Christ — so as to derive a continual supply of grace, comfort, and strength from Him! “I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me!” Galatians 2:20
