Drop in, O my soul!

[Andrew Bonar's words in a letter to a Mrs. Manson, at the bedside of her dying sister]

Here is a message for your sister: 'He is ALL my salvation.' Christ is my obedience to the law, my satisfaction for having broken the law, my payment of the ten thousand talents I owe, and my righteousness! He is all my salvation; my feelings, thoughts, prayers, even my faith are no part of my salvation in coming for acceptance as a sinner. My soul is the dry empty pitcher and Christ is the deep well. Drop in, O my soul!

--Yours truly in the Lord,
Andrew A. Bonar
