You Must Have Jesus Only

You may have seen a balloon ready to ascend into cloudland; and, perhaps, as you gazed upon it, you have asked yourself, “Why does it not go up? The supply of gas is furnished, the voyagers are in the car, everything appears ready; why does it not go up?” The attendants have cut most of the ropes; but there the balloon hangs because there is one rope that still holds it to the earth, and it is not until they cut the last one that away it bounds off towards Heaven. That is what you need to do. Perhaps you have a little goodness of your own, a little something to which you think you can trust. Well, if so, you must cut that rope, and all others; for you must get rid of anything and everything upon which you can rely for salvation except Jesus Christ, the only Saviour. “He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” “Christ is all.” “Ye are complete in Him.” “Perfect in Christ Jesus.” “Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” This is the teaching of the Scriptures. You cannot have Christ, and mix Him up with something else; you must have “Jesus only.”
