We Take, He Undertakes

Philippians 4:13 -- I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

As we give ourselves to Christ, He undertakes for us. We cannot make ourselves holy but He can and will as we rest in Him. The exchanged life is ours by trustful faith in Him.

A. B. Simpson in a little hymn composed to be spoken at the conclusion of one of his sermons he states it this way: 'I take Him as my holiness, My spirit's spotless, heavenly dress, I take the Lord my righteousness- I take, He undertakes'. We have but to abandon the effort to be holy and trust God to do the work within us. He will surely undertake. There are many other happy exchanges other than our sins for His righteousness we Christians may make if we will, among them being our ignorance for His knowledge, our folly for His wisdom, our demerit for His merit, our sad mortality for His blessed immortality and faith for sight at last.

[ Prayer for the Day ]

Lord, I can do everything You want me to do but only through You. Lord Jesus through your Spirit You gives me strength, complete your job in me and use me for the Father's Glory. I ask this in your Name. Amen.

The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
