There will never be a day when I don’t have to fight for holiness. It will never come easily, but then, my inheritance was bought with precious blood. Why should I expect that my life in Christ should be a walk in the park?
Oh, give me strength, Lord, to carry on– each day coming to the cross and affirming again Your justice against my sin was paid for by Jesus. Justice, yes, and LOVE. (Rom. 5:8) Through Jesus, I have access to God’s grace daily. I have access to God’s unmerited favor towards me through the merit of Christ. I can rejoice! I have hope! Oh, fill me again with the sense of that hope and joy!
