Titus 3:5 states, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.”
My dear friends, have you seen Christ? Have you come to Him? Have you fled to Him for refuge? Have you laid hold upon Him as alone having the words of eternal life?
Salvation is in a Person, and not in a doctrine, or the works and will of the flesh. Salvation is to know Christ, to be in union with Him, to have His righteousness upon your record, to be seen in Him as complete! If you have Christ, you have life! If you have missed Christ, you are condemned!
To miss union with Christ is to miss spiritual life! To miss spiritual life is to rest under the condemnation of the law of God.
I say, you must see Christ, you must come to Him, you must flee to Him; you must lay hold upon Him! I say, this you cannot do within yourself! You neither have the ability, nor the willingness to come to Him; you do not have the eyes to see Him; you do not have the life and energy to flee to Him.
This is His work alone!
