Comfort, safety, strength, holiness!
(George Everard, "Talks about Home Life" 1878)
"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are." Hebrews 4:15
There is no comfort, but in Christ's bosom.
There is no safety, but by Christ's side.
There is no strength, but in Christ's arm.
There is no holiness, but in Christ's footsteps.
Look up and see Christ, the merciful and gracious Savior, bending over you in most tender compassion.
He is very near to you. He marks . . .
He thinks upon and sympathizes with you.
"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:16
