Let Jesus Do All


image

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

—Matthew 6:13

image

Therefore let me beseech you, in all love and compassion, consider, you who are Pharisees, you who will not come to Christ but are trusting to yourselves for righteousness, who think because you lead civil, honest, decent lives, all will go well at last. But let me tell you, O ye Pharisees, that harlots, murderers, and thieves shall enter the kingdom of God before you. Do not flatter yourselves of being in the way to heaven, when you are in the broad way to hell. But if you will throw away your righteousness and come to Christ and be contented to let Jesus Christ do all for you and in you, then Christ is willing to be your Saviour. But if you bring your good works with you and think to be justified on the account of them, you may seek to be justified by them forever and never be justified. No, it is only the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanseth us from the filth and pollution of all our sins. And you must be sanctified before you are justified. As for good works, we are justified before God without any respect to them, either past, present, or to come. When we are justified, good works will follow our justification, for we can do no good works until we are cleansed of our pollution by the sanctification of the Spirit of God.

—George Whitefield, “Christ the Support of the Tempted” in Lee Gatiss (Ed.), The Sermons of George Whitefield (Crossway, 2012), 1:343–344.
