As believers we continually turn to Christ for all things, He is all. We are pilgrims and sojourners here because this is truly not our home. We have a Saviour, a Saviour who knows His own, God, our Saviour who came and clothed Himself in flesh so that He might redeem us and save us from our sins.
Thou hast given me a Saviour,
produce in me a faith to live by him,
to make him all my desire,
all my hope,
all my glory.
May I enter him as my refuge,
build on him as my foundation,
walk in him as my way,
follow him as my guide,
conform to him as my example,
receive his instructions as my prophet,
rely on his intercession as my high priest,
obey him as my king.
May I never be ashamed of him or his words,
but joyfully bear his reproach,
never displease him by unholy or imprudent
never count it a glory if I take it patiently
when buffeted for a fault,
never make the multitude my model,
never delay when thy Word invited me to
May thy dear Son preserve me from this present
So that its smiles never allure,
Nor its frowns terrify,
Nor its vices defile,
Nor its errors delude me.
May I feel that I am a stranger and a pilgrim
declaring plainly that I seek a country,
my title to it becoming daily more clear,
my foretastes of it more abundant;
and whatsoever I do may it be done
in the Saviour’s name.
Hallelujah what a Saviour!
Grace and Peace!
