I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.…
Christ lives —
I. IN ALL THE STRENGTH AND TENDERNESS OF HIS AFFECTIONS. A heart which bore the agony, shame, desertion of His disciples must be always warm towards those whose salvation He seeks.
II. IS HIS ABILITY TO HELP TO THE UTMOST. "All power is given unto Me" (Ephesians 1:20-22). "He ever liveth to make intercession."
III. IN A SPECIAL MANNER WITH THE BELIEVER. "I am the Bread of Life;" "I am the Vine, ye are the branches." The Church is His bride. How can we famish or die?
IV. TO DESTROY ALL POWER THAT IS OPPOSED TO MAN'S REDEMPTION.
