F. J. Huegel quote on the Cross

“We are not to think that our exalted position in the Lord Jesus,
seated with Him in the heavenly places, frees us from the need of
further application of the Cross. We never reach a point where we can
leave the Cross. We are invincible, more than conquerors through Him
that loved us, only as we are brought into an ever deeper conformity to
the Saviour’s death unto sin.

Our abiding place is His wounded side. Elsewhere, the flesh reinstates
itself and we once more fall prey to the old man. There are always
remaining, however much we may have advanced, hidden strongholds
of the sinful self-life which must be overthrown by the Spirit’s application
of the finished work of the Cross.” — F. J. Huegel
