Pristine Grace

Christ Alone
by Henry Mahan

     The old reformers took as their essentials, "The scriptures alone, grace alone, and CHRIST ALONE." What did they mean, "CHRIST ALONE"? I believe it was Isaac Watts who wrote:

"Christ as our Mediator stands
Between our souls and God;
Upon both parties lays His hands,
Presenting His precious blood.
Christ is my rock; on Him I build
My life, my hope, my all;
His promise shall be fulfilled;
He will not let me fall."

     All spiritual blessings that the sovereign, gracious God has for sinners are IN our Lord Jesus Christ, BY the merits and blood of our Lord, and FOR the glory of our Redeemer. Simply put, CHRIST IS SALVATION!

"I HAVE PRAYED FOR YOU."
