W. H. Griffith Thomas once wrote a concise volume entitled Christianity Is Christ. Thomas wrote, “CHRISTIANITY is the only religion in the world which rests on the Person of its Founder. Christianity is so inextricably bound up with Christ that our view of the Person of Christ involves and determines our view of Christianity. Does it not inevitably suggest that the connection between Christianity and Christ is so close as to be inseparable? Christianity is nothing less and can be nothing more than relationship to Christ.”
Since Christianity Is Christ, then Jesus should be the subject of our conversation, speaking, and singing. How subtle is the temptation to make religious activity and performance a substitute for a real relationship with Jesus Christ. Revival is the rekindled love for Jesus alone!
My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.
