NEED, THEN SUPPLY *
*By Miles Stanford*
"Not as though I had already attained ... but I follow after, if that I
may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus"
The heavenly Husbandman develops a believer on the same principle that
He does a tree: planting, growth, consolidation, rest, and then more
growth. There are stages. We are shown our sin and need-self. Then we
hunger for freedom and life--Christ. This is a progression. At first, we
consider the shocking revelation of self the greatest of calamities;
later, we realize that it is the pathway to the blessed revelation of
our life in the Lord Jesus Christ.
"Before we can take on the likeness of the Lord Jesus, we must see
ourselves and know how we look; we must be brought into the place where
we are not dismayed nor cast down when we discover how little we are
conformed to His image. It is only as we see our need, that we can be
supplied." - C.McI.
"It does us no good, but only discourages us if we see our failures and
shortages and do not behold the beauty of Christ, and apprehend and
experience our sufficiency in Him. On the other hand, if we see only
what we are in Him and do not discern our defects; if we do not
apprehend that which must be appropriated and worked out in us; if we do
not see all that must be put off, and that Christ must be put on in
actual control and manifestation, we become self-satisfied and puffed up
--- we lose our invaluable 'need.''' - C.McI.
"I certainly do count everything as loss compared with the priceless
privilege of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord" (Phil. 3:8, Wms.).
