Remember, sinner, it is not YOUR HOLD of Christ that saves you; it is Christ! It is not YOUR JOY that saves you; it is Christ! It is not your profession of faith nor YOUR FAITH in Christ that saves; it is Christ's blood and merit! Therefore, look not to your hope, but to Christ, the source of your hope. Look not to your faith, but to Christ, the author and finisher of your faith. And if you can do that, no power can throw you down.
