Go to the Source of Life

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life. – Romans 6:23

Apart from Christ we are dead in trespasses and sins; look at the depth of our degradation! But in Christ we live- live with His own life. Look at the height of our exaltation, and let our thankfulness be proportioned to this infinity of mercy. Measure if you can from the lowest hell to the highest heaven, and so great let your thankfulness be to Him who has lifted you from death to life.

Union with Christ makes you live; keep up your enjoyment of that union, that you may clearly perceive and enjoy your life. Begin with the prayer, “Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee.” Think much of the spiritual life and less of this poor carnal life, which will be soon be over. Go to the source of life for an increase of spiritual life. Go to Jesus. Think of Him more than you have done; pray to Him more; use His name more believingly in your supplications. Serve Him better and seek to grow up into His likeness in all things. Life is a growing thing. Your life only grows by getting nearer to Christ; therefore, get under the beams of the Sun of Righteousness. Time brings you nearer to Him, you will soon be where He is in heaven; let grace bring you nearer also. You taste more of His love as fresh mercies come; give Him more of your love, more of your fellowship. Abide in Him, and may His word abide in you henceforth and forever, and all shall be to His glory. Amen. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
