I am a blues guitar player and a follower of Jesus. This blog is about music, especially Blues, theology, humor, culture and anything else that rolls through my brain.

Resting On Christ Alone
“We can put it this way: the man who has faith is the man who is no
longer looking at himself and no longer looking to himself. He no longer
looks at anything he once was. He does not look at what he is now. He
does not even look at what he hopes to be as the result of his own
efforts. He looks entirely to the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished
work, and rests on that alone. He has ceased to say, "Ah yes, I used to
commit terrible sins but I have done this and that." He stops
saying that. If he goes on saying that, he has not got faith. Faith
speaks in an entirely different manner and makes a man say, "Yes I have
sinned grievously, I have lived a life of sin, yet I know that I am a
child of God because I am not resting on any righteousness of my own; my
righteousness is in Jesus Christ and God has put that to my account.” ― D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Is this truth settled in your heart? I have received the free gift of
righteousness and I have been adopted into God's family and I am
eternally secure in Christ.
