Victory In Christ – #10

He Is All To Me By: W. W. Prescott   I find it difficult to state in a form of words just what Christ is to me. It is easy to repeat the statement, “Christ is all, and in all” (Colossians 3:11), but how shall I express my own experience in translating this text into daily life? I have found Christ to be the sufficient supply of my every need as a Christian. All my fears and my dread of the future are calmed when I stay my mind upon...

He Will Share His Throne With Me By: W. W. Prescott     The thought almost overwhelms me. How can it be possible! I am a weak, mortal creature, and He is almighty, eternal, “God over all.” And yet He has said it, and He has pledged Himself to fulfill it. “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne” (Revelation 3:21). There is only one...

He Will Come For Me By: W. W. Prescott   It is the desire of Jesus that I should be with Him where He is. He Himself has said so in plain words. In order that this desire might be fulfilled, He came from heaven to this world; He lived for me, He died for me, He rose again, and now “He ever liveth to make intercession” for me (Hebrews 7:25). All this was necessary in order that He might save me from sin and consequent separation from...

He Is My Advocate By: W. W. Prescott   I know that I have sinned, but I also know that I have “an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1). Jesus lived for me, He died for me, and He was raised from the dead and ascended to heaven to be my personal representative before the Father. Since Jesus is not ashamed to call me His brother, I can confidently regard Him as my brother. It inspires me with hope and joy...

His Victory Mine By: W. W. Prescott     For a long time I tried to gain the victory over sin, but I failed. I have since learned the reason. Instead of doing the part which God expects me to do, and which I can do, I was trying to do God’s part, which He does not expect me to do, and which I cannot do. Primarily, my part is not to win the victory, but to receive the victory that has already been won for me by Jesus Christ. “But,”...

His Righteousness Is Mine By: W. W. Prescott   Jesus, the Son of God who became the Son of Man, bestows His righteousness upon me as an absolutely free gift. As I meditate upon this, I know not how to express in a worthy manner the thoughts that throng my mind. Without flaw, without defect, His righteousness is perfect. He is the only man of whom this can be said. And He wove this beautiful robe of righteousness that He might clothe...

He Saves Me By: W. W. Prescott Jesus loved me and died for me. Jesus was raised from the dead, ascended to heaven, and now lives as my personal Savior. In Him I have redemption, even the forgiveness of my sins. With Him I have fellowship day by day, as I live with Him and walk with Him. I recognize His presence with me, and I depend upon Him to keep me from doing anything contrary to His blessed will. I have surrendered to Him; I have...

The Laodicean’s Lament

My Hope is built on nothing less, Than MY dear church and its success! No matter what MY church may do, It cannot fail – it’s going through!   My hope is built on nothing more, For me it’s heaven’s open door. So I rejoice – let others wail: It’s going through – it cannot fail!   I do not need to watch and wait; To me it stands as heaven’s gate; So I’ll support her, come what...

He Died For Me By: W. W. Prescott   Jesus Himself has told me this. He has put this assurance in my mind and heart: He “loved me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). My iniquity was laid upon Him. He bore my sin. He died in my place. He laid down His life for me, as if I were the only one to be redeemed.   “That He should leave His place on high, And come for sinful man to die, You count it strange? —So do not I, Since I...

Victory In Christ – #2

He Lived For Me By: W. W. Prescott Jesus took the same flesh that I have. He met the same temptations that I meet. He voluntarily made Himself just as dependent upon a power outside Himself as I am, in resisting temptation. He demonstrated that it is possible for one as weak as I am, to be obedient to God’s holy will, through the grace provided. He was cruelly misunderstood, yet He refused to approve the least departure from a...
