The Irresistible CHRIST+ ...

.
.
What Our LORD declares is Eternally true:
.
.
I,
if I be lifted up,
will draw all men
unto ME+ .
.
When once you know HIM+,
.
CHRIST
is
absolutely irresistible.
.
You can no more help trusting HIM+
than you can help breathing.
page 21, The GOD of ALL COMFORT, by Hannah Whitall Smith, 1956 ed.

Hannah Smith writes to the Christian:

The LORD wrestles with us in order to bring us to a place of ENTIRE dependence on HIM+. We resist as long as we have any strength; until at last HE+ is forced to bring us to a place of helplessness, where we are obliged to yield; and then we conquer by this very yielding. Our victory is always the victory of weakness. ...
And this victory will be ours, if we take the LORD to be our Banner, and commit ALL our battles unto HIM+.
from page 85, The GOD of ALL COMFORT.
.
.
The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
.
HE+ maketh me to lie down
in green pastures,
HE+ leadeth me beside the still waters.
.
HE+ restoreth my soul.
.
HE+ leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness
for HIS+ Name's sake.
.
Yea, though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil
for THOU+ art with me.
.
Thy+ rod and Thy+ staff,
they comfort me.
.
THOU+ preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies;
.
THOU+ anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
.
Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me
all the days of my life
.
and I will dwell
in the house of The LORD
forever.
.
Our LORD JESUS CHRIST becomes absolutely irresistible for anyone who can see that HIS+ great good heart never changes towards HIS+ friends.
.
Do you know
The Irresistible CHRIST ?
