Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse, of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, had a gift for putting things in brief format. I want to share with you such a statement he would use on occasion.
We have a relationship that can never be changed:
we are children of the Most High.
We have a righteousness that can never be tarnished:
the very righteousness of Christ himself.
We have a resource that can never be diminished:
the power of the Spirit of God.
We have a peace that can ne’er be destroyed:
it is the God of Peace himself.
We have a joy that can never be surpassed:
the Scriptures call it “joy unspeakable and full of glory.”
We have a love that will never let us go:
God’s unconditional love.
We have an Intercessor whose prayers can never go unanswered:
the Spirit of Christ within us.
We have a Sovereign Lord who can never lose control:
the King of kings himself.
