"It is Christ" - by Spurgeon

"But remember, sinner, it is not thy hold of Christ that saves thee -
it is Christ;
it is not thy joy in Christ that saves thee -
it is Christ;
it is not even faith in Christ, though that is the instrument -
it is Christ's blood and merits;
therefore look not so much to thy hand with which thou art grasping Christ
as to Christ;
look not to thy hope,
but to Christ, the source of thy hope;
look not to thy faith,
but to Christ,
the author and finisher of thy faith;
and if thou do that, ten thousand devils can not throw thee down,
but as long as
thou lookest at thyself,
the meanest of those evil spirits may tread
thee beneath his feet."

-from the message, The Comer's Conflict With Satan by C. H. Spurgeon.

    j/k, i know what you meant to say, *Divine*.
