One Ray of Glory

Men of Yesterday

I believe the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world, that whosoever believeth on him might not perish, but have everlasting life. I believe that all power and authority in heaven and earth are given unto him and that he is able to save unto the uttermost all that come to God by him; that in him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge; that it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell, the fulness of the Godhead, the fulness of the Spirit, the fulness of grace and salvation. When we see him we see the Father, his image, his character, his glory, and his perfection. Let me lose my life before I would detract from my Lord one ray of glory.
