When our hand grabs anything, it does precisely what faith does when it takes hold of Christ and the blessings of His redemption. Faith says, “Jesus is mine.” Faith hears of the pardoning blood, and cries, “I accept it to pardon me.” Faith calls the legacies of the dying Jesus her own; and they are her own, for faith is Christ’s heir; He has given Himself and all that He has to faith. Take, O friend, that which grace has provided for you. You will not be a thief, for you have a divine permit: “Let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.” He who may have a treasure simply by his grasping it will be foolish indeed if he remains poor.
