The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The All Sufficiency of Christ

The All-Sufficiency of Christ

by S. M. Baugh, Westminister Seminary, California

Is faith in Jesus Christ all that I need to be justified? Has Christ really done it all for me?

We must add some little pinch of our own: a little holiness, a good work here or there—some little extra to ensure our place in heaven. But Paul’s answer to this is a resounding affirmation of the all-sufficiency of our Savior: “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
