Protected On All Sides
Just as our physical life reaches in three dimensions – length, breadth, height – so does our spiritual life.
“Neither shall anyone pluck them out of my hand. ”
John 10:28 NKJV
We have the hand of the Lord Jesus reaching out to us. What length He came to save! He will not let any of His own be plucked from His hand.
“And no one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”
We have the hand of the Father embracing us. What breadth, that He loved the whole world! Through the cross, He has the ability to save any who will believe.
“You were sealed with the holy Spirit of promise.”
We have the seal of the Holy Spirit. What height, that He serves as the down-payment for God’s glorious promise of redemption! God has His own protected on all sides.
“What then shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”
By Tom Steere
|Take the world, but give me Jesus, in His cross my trust shall be;
Till, with clearer, brighter vision, face to face my Lord I see.
Oh, the height and depth of mercy! Oh, the length and breadth of love!
Oh, the fullness of redemption, pledge of endless life above!
By Fanny Crosby
