J N Darby – in Christ I find my Life, my Strength, and my Object

John Nelson Darby (1800-1882)

There are three things the law could not do.  It could not give life, and, even supposing we got life, it does not give strength; and, another thing of deepest moment for our souls, it does not give us an object.  But in Christ I find my life, my strength, and my object.  “They that are after the Spirit, do mind the things of the Spirit”; they have the true object.  I get in Christ an object that is sufficient to delight God Himself.

(J N Darby, Collective Writings vol. 31 p155.)
