Cling to the Cross

James Smith, a pastor from the 1800s, penned these words …

Cling to the cross—all through life! Never take the eye off it! Never withdraw the hand from it! By day and by night, at home or abroad, on the land or the sea, in poverty and plenty, in darkness and light, in sorrow and joy—cling to the cross!

If Satan harasses you—hold up the cross!

If death terrifies you—hold up the cross!

If conscience accuses you—silence it with the cross!

Cross of Jesus! You are now the ground of my hope, the object of my faith, the theme of my salvation, the subject of my song, the antidote of my miseries, and the joy of my heart. O may Your cross become growingly precious to me, and through life and all its changes, may I cling to Your cross!
