For myself, I cannot always come to Christ direct, but I can always come by sin. Sin is the handle by which I get Christ. I take a verse in which God has put Christ and sin together. I cannot always put my finger upon Christ and say, “Christ belongs to me”; but I can put my finger upon sin and say, “Sin belongs to me”. I take the word, for instance, “The Son of man is come to save that which was lost”. Yes, lost, lost Im lost; I put my finger upon that word and say, “Im the lost one; Im lost”. Well, I find that the Son of man is come to save the lost; and I cry out, “What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder”.
We are to assemble to hear Gods Word but to what end? To do it.
We are to grow in dependant insufficiency, and in the knowledge of Him who makes sufficient.
