The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Ephesians 2:1-10 // Psalm 119:33-40

“The life I now live in the flesh by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave
Himself for me.”
Galatians 2:20

The Power of the Gospel

A pioneer missionary once gave this testimony to the value of the Gospel of Jesus: “I never got away from Jesus and Him crucified. And I found that when my people were gripped by this great evangelical doctrine of Christ and Him crucified, I had no need to give instructions on morality. I found that one followed as the sure and inevitable fruit of the other.”
In the cross is found all there is of the grace of God. There is forgiveness for our guilt, peace for our turmoil, power for our weakness, courage for our fear, victory for our defeat. This is what many of us have experienced on the mountain with Christ.
Holiness is not the way to Christ – Christ is the way to holiness. We are privileged channels of His grace. Every working Christian will joyfully say it: “I am just a channel, Christ the power; I am just a branch, Christ the Vine; I am just the vessel, Christ the Light; I am just the cup, Christ the water.”

O Holy Spirit, grant that the power and glory of the cross may be manifested in me. Amen.
