HE THAT GLORIETH . . . --- 1 Corinthians 1:30, 31

"Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever." --- Hebrews 13:8.

"Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righeousness, and sanctification; that, as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." --- 1 Corinthians 1:30, 31.

"To finish the transgression, to make reconciliation for iniquity and to bring in everlasting righteousness." --- Daniel 9:24.

"In the Lord have I righteousness and strength." --- Isaiah 45:24.

In ourselves we find nothing but misery; in Christ all that is good; nay, he is himself our All; he works and gives what is necessary to salvation, therefore, we cannot, we need not, bring anything to him of our own; but since he is made unto us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and our All, we may and must rely on his name, and draw everything from him by the continual prayer of faith.

And when by living faith in Christ he becomes our All, the law, sin, Satan, and even our own judgments, have lost their power and right of condemnation over us.

Jehovah speaks, let Israel hear,
Let all the earth rejoice and fear,
While God's eternal Son proclaims
His sovereing honours and his names.

I am the last, and I the first,
The Saviour-God, and God the just;
There's none beside pretends to show
Such justice and salvation too.

In me alone shall men confess,
Lies all their strength and righteousness;
But such as dare despise my name,
I'll clothe them with eternal shame.
