“By looking to Christ, we find our lasting identity and everlasting security. We are no longer insecure, for we enjoy ‘perfect safety in Christ.’ Christ is our life (Colossians 3:4). The ‘evils’ and ‘misery’ we so long faced have met their match in our Savior. He has disarmed unrighteousness and made a mockery of pride.
These theological truths mean everything to us. We cannot be happy by looking to ourselves. We must look to Christ. We may struggle to feel settled and confident at time, but God is our father and Christ our ‘strong rock,’ the giver of ‘undisturbed tranquility’ in a place where nothing is stable.”
-Owen Strachan, Always in God’s Hands: Day by Day in the Company of Jonathan Edwards, 125.
