Octavius Winslow was a 19th century pastor and writer in America.
I’m thankful for the simplicity of what he wrote. He places these wonderful truths down where I can easily reach them.
“We cannot keep our eye too exclusively or too intently fixed on Jesus.
All salvation is in Him. All salvation proceeds from Him. All salvation leads to Him.
And for the assurance and comfort of our salvation we are to repose believingly and entirely on Him.
Christ must be all!
Christ the beginning; Christ the center; and Christ the end.
Oh sweet truth to you who are sensible of your poverty, vileness, and insufficiency, and of the ten thousand flaws and failures of which, perhaps, no one is cognizant but God and your own soul!
Oh, to turn and rest in Christ; a loving Christ; a tender Christ, whose heart’s love never chills, from whose eye darts no reproof, from whose lips breathes no sentence of condemnation!
Christ must be all!”
“Christ is all and in all.” Colossians 3:11 (ESV)
