THE IDOL SELF FALLS PROSTRATE BEFORE KING JESUS!
[ From Thomas Reade's, "On Conversion" ]

When the Savior was born into the world, there was no room for Him in the inn. Just so it is with our depraved hearts.

Satan puts on the threefold hindrances of unbelief, pride, and prejudice. Inbred sin, afraid of losing its darling gratifications, opposes every effort to admit so kind a Friend. The flesh pleads hard for self indulgence. The world spreads its painted baubles, its deceitful riches, its empty honors, its intoxicating pleasures; and thus the sinner is held in vassalage to the powers of darkness.

Is, then, the heart forever barred against the Prince of peace? Forever barred it would be, did not Sovereign Grace, by its almighty power, drive out the strong man armed, crucify each rebellious lust, and bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ! When grace opens the sinner's heart, all the powers of the soul are made willing to admit the conquering Savior, and to acknowledge Him to be the Lord. Old favorite sins now become hateful. Darling lusts appear like inbred vipers. Satan is beheld in all his horrors. Vice in perceived its true deformity. The world loses its charms. Heaven opens on the enraptured eye of faith. Holiness captivates the heart by its celestial beauties. Jesus is beheld with rising admiration, and becomes each day more precious to the soul.

Such is the wonderful change wrought in the conversion of a sinner, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Unbelief gives way to faith; pride gives way to humility; anger gives way to meekness; impatience gives way to resignation; hatred gives way to love, and
sin gives way to universal holiness.

The idol, SELF, falls prostrate before Jesus Christ; and nothing is extolled, or trusted in, or pleaded before the throne of God, but the precious blood and righteousness of Emmanuel.
