Meeting in the Meadow: A Few Quotes
A Few Quotes
Our Christian life today is a foretaste of the heavenly banquet still to come; for God has “made us to sit down with Him” who first was seated by mighty power in the heavenly places far above all (Ephesians 1:20; 2:6). This means that the work of salvation is not ours but His. It is not that we work for God but that He has worked for us. God gives us our position of rest. He brings His Son’s finished work and presents it to us, and then He says to us, “Please sit.”
His offer of salvation cannot, I think, be better expressed than in the words of invitation to the great feast in the parable: “Come; for all things are now ready.”
You are His…by conquest. What a battle He had in us before we were won! How long He laid siege to our walls against Him. But we have become the conquered captives of His omnipotent love. Thus chosen, purchased, and subdued, the rights of our divine Possessor are inalienable.
