For Me


image

Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.

—Daniel 9:24

image

All that Christ hath done, all that Christ hath suffered, all Christ’s active obedience, all Christ’s passive obedience, will do us no good, unless by the Spirit of God, it is brought into our souls. As one expresses it, ‘An unapplied Christ is no Christ at all.’ To hear of a Christ dying for sinners will only increase your damnation, will only sink you deeper into hell, unless we have ground to say, by a work of grace wrought in our hearts, that the Lord Jesus hath brought this home to us. Hence it is, that the Apostle, speaking of Christ, says, ‘Who loved me and gave himself for me.’ O that dear, that great, that little but important word, me. Happy they who can adopt the Apostle’s language! Happy they that can apply it to their own heart. And when they hear that Christ has brought in an everlasting righteousness, can say, ‘Blessed be God, it is brought in by the blessed Spirit to my soul!’

—George Whitefield, “The Righteousness of Christ an Everlasting Righteousness” in Lee Gatiss (Ed.), The Sermons of George Whitefield (Crossway, 2012), 1:293–294.
