“Christ is all and in all.” Colossians 3:11 

For a believer to receive and know Christ as his all — is the only means to live a true life of faith; when he has done this, it will not be hard to resign all other things. To talk much of Christ and make frequent use of His name one to another, is commendable — if the heart goes along with the words. But to call upon God the Father with a filial confidence is also our duty and does not in the least contradict the apostle’s meaning; for it is only through Christ that we can do it; and, as He Himself assures us, the Father and He are one. 

You are my all, O gracious Lord — what then can I lack? I desire no more than to be put always in mind of this, by the animating voice of Your Spirit. To live upon You is my wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. O Jesus, You are my all, my light, my life, my food, my way, my end! I rejoice in You and glory in Your most holy and ever-blessed name; for it is all I need, all I wish, all I desire. Jesus only, Jesus always, Jesus all — shall be my motto!
