May Christ Be Everything To Us

Martin Bucer wrote these passionate words about the great satisfaction that is to be found in the Lord Jesus Christ alone:

" . . . Christ our Lord alone is the One who is, gives, and performs for us everything which we can desire for our true advantage, happiness, and honour."

" . . . all gain, all enjoyment, all honour apart from Christ is poison and death, but . . . in Christ all loss is true and eternal gain, joy, and honour . . . ."

" . . . through the holy gospel of Christ people are well instructed and reminded to seek everything in Christ our Lord alone and be satisfied with all things in Him."

" . . . we have all our joy, comfort, and confidence in Him, Christ our Lord."

"If we really love Christ, He is everything to us . . . ."

Martin Bucer, Concerning The True Care Of Souls, Translated by Peter Beale (Carlisle: Banner Of Truth, 2009) 166-167; 169; 171; 179; 192.
